I know how challenging life can be, especially during transition or stress. Going to college, starting a new career, dealing with family and/or relationship changes, and experiencing an illness can all cause anxiety and mood changes. These times can be even more difficult if you already struggle with a lack of confidence and low self-esteem and don't have the tools to manage your stress and anxiety. Finding mental health treatment is no easy task. It can be frustrating to navigate insurance and find the right provider. But don't worry; I'm here to help!

Are you feeling tired, run down, frustrated or hopeless? You're struggling with the never ending challenges and transitions life throws at you. Your plate is so full, you can't possibly take on another thing, yet, here you are...taking on one more thing. You are constantly taking care of others, but your name never makes it to the top of the list. You're sick and tired of being sick and tired. Maybe you're a young adult that is struggling to see the point in life, or maybe you're a parent that is at the end of your rope. You desperately need something to change...but what?

It’s easy in life to lose ourselves, to feel overwhelmed and stuck. Issues that arise from work, family, environment and even our inner self can leave people feeling angry, sad, frustrated or even numb. Sometimes people repeat patterns and behaviors that they know aren’t helpful, but then get stuck as they are unsure of how to change or even begin the process to heal.

Aging with grace is not always an easy task. There are decisions to be made about retirement, finances, where to live, accessibility, health and family. There are losses of people we love. Our health declines naturally with age and there can be chronic illnesses to cope with. People who are aging may need support in adjusting to changes in physical and mental health if it appears to be interfering with daily life.

Carroll Creative Therapy is a psychotherapy practice serving clients of all ages, and provides evidence-based play therapy for children. For older children and teens, we combine strategies and wisdom from play therapy along with traditional talk therapy, often using age-appropriate tools like the creative arts, video games, and social media. Our work with adults tends to look more like traditional talk therapy, but incorporates many of these same elements through conversation. We are also proud to support gender-diverse and LGBTQ+ clients of all ages, and have a deep knowledge of the community.
