Cara Gruhala is not currently accepting new clients.
Visiting with a counselor can be a life changing experience. I work with clients from early childhood through all phases of adulthood. Everyone has a unique story, and I value the personal experiences, hopes, and dreams of all my clients. Partnering during a trusting counseling relationship can be one of the best ways to reach your goals and create lasting, positive change in your life. The relationship between counselor and client can create a vessel or space in which we can unpack and sort through your concerns with care, compassion, and confidentiality.
I believe that every client is the expert in their own life, and use a non-judgmental, person centered approach frequently. I also commonly utilize elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and for children, Play Therapy. In trauma treatment Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) is typically utilized.
Being a counselor is my professional calling. I know both professionally and personally how powerful counseling can be. I look forward to getting to know you, and helping you to reach your goals.
