About

I am a practitioner committed to diversity and accessibility and offer a holistic therapeutic approach targeted to fit client needs. I am dedicated to trust-building and co-creation and enjoy worksheets/ post-session exercises that reinforce and assist integration. I enjoy working with clients with traditionally limited access to care. I also appreciate curiosity for self-awareness and commitment to growth.
I am especially versed in issues regarding somatic therapy techniques for increased trauma recovery and resiliency. I am passionate about the impact and potency of somatic experiencing to unfreeze stuck responses, to restore the defense response, and to promote a reregulation of stress.
I am passionate about offering quality service and care to people who are ready to embark on a journey toward sustainable growth and stable mental health. Feel free to reach out here or at www.carlacarreira.com for a free consult so we can connect and evaluate your needs and goals.
