We will explore your own “inner dialogue” and/or “parts,” as well as important narratives (aka the stories you tell yourself about yourself and the world around you). I encourage your evaluation, adaptation and/or complete overhaul of these sometimes unhelpful thoughts and stories in favor of newer, healthier, and more useful ones that we develop together!

My approach is rooted in the belief that how we relate to ourselves mirrors how we experience life and develop relationships. Not many of us were taught how to compassionately attend to our painful feelings, critical thoughts, or impulsive behaviors. Instead, we may have been scolded, shamed, or sent away for showing big feelings such as anger or sadness, praised for being self-reliant, or withdrawn from by parents who did not have the capacity to be with our feelings. When we can begin to shift from judgment and avoidance of the parts of ourselves that we may not approve of to curiosity; healing can begin.

Are you ready to begin making significant changes in your life? A trained professional can help stand by and guide you; you're not alone. I typically treat depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, adjustment, and relationship issues, but I was educated to work with a broad spectrum of mental health issues. During my training, I received specialized clinical experiences for working with survivors of traumatic events, have felt marginalized by society or their family systems due to their identities, career issues, relationship problems (e.g., loneliness, insecurity, preoccupation, attachment, etc.), and issues with body image and eating.

[My schedule is full. Please contact my group practice's Get In Touch form to see if other clinicians may have openings] You may be considering therapy because you feel stuck or dissatisfied about some parts of your life. You might be aware of the person you want to be and can be, but something is getting in the way of that and you would like to understand what. Or, you might need a place to talk about difficult experiences so you can make sense of them. As someone who truly believes in the healing power of therapy, I am glad you are considering it as a way of reaching your potential, regardless of whom you choose as your therapist.

You are likely searching for a therapist because there is something in your life that is not working well. You may be feeling overwhelmed, distressed, hopeless, or noticing things in your life or in your relationships that you no longer find satisfying. Therapy provides time to consider who you are; it is a collaborative conversation that helps you to explore the ways your experiences have shaped your beliefs, feelings, and assumptions, and to identify the factors which prevent you from making the changes you desire in your life.

I help parents build the warm relationships they want with their children. Managing childcare, school, and work dynamics can all prove demanding under the best of circumstances. Behavior issues only increase the challenges. You may be struggling with the transition to parenthood. The stress of life with a new baby might contribute to feelings of anxiety or depression. Together, we help you build confidence in your parenting and add playfulness and laughter back into your home. You and your children develop healthy communication patterns that address your concerns and behavior issues while building a warm emotional connection.

Let’s be honest – you’re a smart, capable person who probably would have figured out how to fix things already if you could have. Whether as an individual or couple, I care about implementing the things you haven’t yet tried, while amplifying strengths that already work. My clients who find the most impact from our sessions are willing to try new things and can appreciate practicality, humor, and directness. You will find my approach to counseling is relational as I help you discover ways to practically apply what happens session to your day to day life.

Hi, my name is Carla Grace. My therapeutic style is interactive, inclusive and supportive.

It is a privilege to walk alongside a person through their healing journey.

My ideal client is someone with the desire to live life more fully. Someone who will no longer settle for the status quo and is tired of missing out on living their best life. Few receive instructions when they’re young on how to be happy. In fact, most of the messages we receive from the people and institutions around us, though perhaps well intentioned, cause us unhappiness. There’s a reason after all why so many are unhappy. The process of transformation begins by exploring deep within our minds. Our ‘shadow’ contains both everything that holds us back and keeps us down but also unused power that can propel us forward.

I work with individuals and couples who are ready to do the hard work of creating change. I believe all people have the capacity to slow down and be more mindful; both in how we talk to ourselves and others, and in how we choose our next steps. I support the process of creating helpful coping skills and affirmations, while also getting to the root of what created the thoughts and behavior in the first place. Patterns of behavior are often carried out unintentionally, and learned at a young age. Understanding the past gives clarity to the present. A clearer present allows us to build a life with more intention and purpose.
