HI. I'M CARRIE.
I want to live in a world where compassion is valued, uniqueness is celebrated, and relaxation is medicine.
A world where we embrace our humanness together.
I first began to embrace my humanness seventeen years ago in my early twenties. During my last year of college, anxiety and fear began to fill my days. I spent a year not talking about what was going on inside because I didn't think anyone would understand. My anxiety grew until it overwhelmed my system. I was scared and lonely even when surrounded by people who loved me.
Eventually, with the help of my family, I connected with my first therapist. Within twenty minutes, it was clear she understood what was happening inside of me. I felt so much relief in being seen with compassion and understanding. She reassured me, supported me, and guided me. After a few months, I began to feel like myself again.
This experience changed my life.
Within six months, I was headed west to begin a graduate program in counseling and diving deep into my own process of self-exploration and healing. Since then, I have supported hundreds of individuals as they get to know themselves, meet challenges, and navigate transitions.
I believe we each carry the wisdom of our own growth within us. I help people stay connected to that wisdom.
I work with many people struggling with anxiety, perfectionism, overwhelm, unresolved trauma, and critical thoughts. My approach is practical, intuitive, and creative. I hold a warm and compassionate space for my clients to know themselves more completely.
My training includes a master's degrees in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from John F. Kennedy University and Women’s Spirituality from New College of California. At New College, I had the privilege of studying with Vicki Noble, Dvorah Grenn, Luisah Teish, Dianne Jenett, and Judy Grahn, and Miri Hunter Haruach--pioneering, creative women in embodied scholarship. I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, EFT Practitioner, and Reiki Master trained at HCH Institute.
I love to lead groups and lectures focused on relaxation, self-soothing, guided meditation, stress mindset, grief, and expressive arts. I am available for talks on Self-Compassion as Practice, Self-Soothing, The Language of the Unconscious, and The Imagination & the Inner Critic.
“Having known Carrie for many years both professionally and personally,
I cannot speak highly enough of how gifted she is at her work. Her dedication,
integrity, wisdom, warmth and grace are the golden threads of her healing
arts. A shining gem of a human being through and through.”
It is possible to become unstuck.
It is possible to shift what is not working in our lives.
It is possible to slow down and go within so you can grow, heal and thrive. And you don't have to do it alone.
I would love to hear from you.
