I have an array of techniques including a person-centered approach, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy to meet your needs.
I am here to help you with what you need right now. This includes if you are struggling with current life situations, stressors at work/school, or problems with managing your emotions, like anxiety, depression, or anger. I am passionate about what I do, and I love working with clients to help them achieve their goals in life. My type of therapy adjusts to what you need. This can mean that I do a more relaxed style of session where we are just talking about what is going on and problem solving in the moment or if that does not work for you, I can also do a more structured approach, that focuses on skills and coping strategies.

I use a trauma focused approach to better understand my clients and their symptoms.
Trying to heal and work through trauma can be overwhelming and difficult to begin. Going through major life transitions can cause unwanted stress. Asking for help can be hard, but taking that step shows strength and resilience. My goal is to help you feel empowered, validated, and supported along your healing journey.

Your relationship is unraveling before you. You never imagined things could get this bad or that you would ever deal with such painful issues. You’re feeling invalidated, misunderstood, confused, hurt, and angry on a regular basis. All you want is to be happy again. You find yourself doubting the relationship and yourself on a regular basis. You've even considered what it would be like if you weren't together anymore. Other times you want to do everything you can to fix the problems but your efforts just aren't getting you the long term results you want. Your head is constantly spinning. Things were supposed to be different.

“Before you assist others, put your oxygen mask on first.” I strongly believe that as individuals we need to prioritize our well-being to live a full and rewarding life. Self-care and self-love are two incredibly important concepts, and starting the journey to both of them through therapy is a wonderful beginning. It is a journey that I would love to take on with you. Beginnings are never easy, but I will be here to support and guide you, and hopefully make this as easy and rewarding of a process as it can be.

Hey there! I’m Dr. Jada Carter, and I believe every individual has a distinct story that shapes the way we view and understand the world around us. Throughout our lives, we can lose our sense of autonomy, leading to a loss of ability to control our own story. The essence of my work is to safely collaborate with you and empower you to meet your needs and goals while moving the healing process along to help improve your emotional well-being. I provide an empathetic, non-judgmental, and warm approach within our therapeutic relationship.

There are countless methods for healing & moving forward. Commitment to my clients begins with a firmly held belief in the ability of individuals to advocate for themselves & choose their own path. Emotions & feelings are a gift; they are the natural barometer for navigating our lives. Often we fear or misinterpret those emotions & fall into a holding pattern as to how to move forward. The best work is done when we are honest and open about who we are, and where we want to be. Interventions are guided through your ideals & values.

Your once amazing relationship feels so hard but it doesn’t have to be. You have a deep desire to be your best self for you and your partner but it feels like regardless of your best efforts you continue to struggle. It used to feel so easy but you now find yourself on edge and agitated more often than not. When you try to share your feelings they often come out wrong or your partner just doesn’t get it which leaves you wishing you hadn’t said anything at all. It’s getting harder to engage on the smallest things.
