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.

Although there are times when we feel broken, hopeless, and unsure of the future, there is hope. As a therapist, I provide a safe and secure environment for you to process your vulnerabilities, expand your coping skills and begin to heal. We work together to create a personalized plan that works best for you. My approach emphasizes the unconscious mind, therapeutic interpretation and early childhood experiences. I help you better understand the unconscious forces which impact your current thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Asking for help is not always easy which is why I view it as a significant strength. No one should feel alone or feel they lack support when trying to navigate and overcome the many challenges life may unexpectedly throw their way. Being an advocate for social justice and helping people reach their full potential are my passions, so it’s only natural that social work is my life calling. I have witnessed time and time again the transformative power therapy has in people's lives, which motivates me to be the best social worker I can be. I'm committed to helping my clients meet their goals and reach their full potential.

I have always held a passion for the therapeutic process and understand the power of therapy. I believe the therapeutic relationship between client and therapist is essential for progress to be made. There is no one size fits all therapist! I take a person centered approach as well as recognizing the need for coping skills and mindfulness. I strives to create a safe environment through authenticity, trust, directness, and of course a little humor. Through this, I believe that one can achieve a state of contentedness and peace that we are all constantly searching for.

It's my goal to provide that place of safety and acceptance, then offer you choices of therapy models. There are many paths to change; we'll find the right fit for you.
