I am grounded in a Client-Centered approach and skillfully integrate: Psychodynamic , Attachment, Motivational Interviewing, DBT, CBT, and mindfulness skills.
“This shouldn’t be happening to me”. “Why can’t I feel better”? “I shouldn’t be struggling as much as I am right now”. If you’ve ever said any of these things, you’re in good company. I provide therapy for high performers, the people that always get stuff done and put others ahead of their own needs. Together my clients and I explore deep patterns of relating to themselves and to others that influence the way that they show up in relationships. As a former high-performer myself, I get how scary it can feel to put yourself first. It can feel "wrong" or uncomfortable. The cool thing with therapy is, you won't be doing this work alone!

Some approaches I integrate include person-centered, psychodynamic , EMDR, CBT, DBT, and Motivational Interviewing.
I specialize in life transitions and know that any change, positive or not, can at times be difficult. Don’t let anxiety, depression, trauma, work-related stress, relationships, or anything else keep you from moving towards your goals and the life you want. We all have different lived experiences, but regardless of your current stage in life, I hope you know that you are worthy of living your life to the fullest.

Asking for help isn't always easy, so I have tremendous respect for the courage and strength it takes to seek professional guidance.

My style of counseling is supportive and collaborative, with an emphasis on respect, encouragement, and hope.

Because each individual is unique, I incorporate various therapeutic modalities including psychodynamic theory, family of origin insight, expressive/experiential techniques including mindfulness and bodywork.
Emotional pain is difficult and often lonely. False beliefs can be the root of this pain. Shining light on the truth that opens us up to our unique true self and joy can be challenging. For over 24 years I've had the privilege of working with incredible people of varied ethnicities, spiritual beliefs and gender/sexual preferences. My deepest desire is to offer a space without judgement that is collaborative, challenging, compassionate and empowering. I invite each person to uncover and celebrate the purpose and passion of their truest Self. Namaste

The therapy framework is psychodynamic , however I may employ techniques from other treatment approaches when clinically indicated and based on patient preferences.
I help people of all ages who are dealing with stress, a significant loss, obstacles to achieving important goals, a mental health concern or difficulties in their relationships with others. Do you find yourself feeling anxious, frustrated, sad, or overwhelmed much of the time? We can work together to help you with that. Therapy provides a safe, designated space to work on feeling better, more satisfied, and "less stuck." I offer a caring and non-judgmental approach which appreciates that each person is unique, as is their life path and goals for treatment.

I work from an integrated approach to meet your specific needs, drawing primarily on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Systems Therapy, Psychodynamic , and trauma-informed theories.
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.

For adults and teens, I offer psychodynamic talk therapy, exploring history, self-concept, and goals; for children, play therapy to help express emotions and put them into words and parent coaching to help parents understand what to expect from their child and how to help kids achieve their potential.
I am here to support humans - children, teens, adults, and families - as they navigate the complex world of human emotion and relationships. We are all good people. A good life can be hard, complicated, challenging, and even a difficult life can be rewarding, fulfilling, and well-lived. I seek to join with those who are struggling with that complexity to help them achieve the goals they have for themselves, to help them cope with inherent disappointments, losses, and stressors, and feel the joy of personal growth.

I enjoy working with clients who are adjusting to life's difficulties and managing a life stage or an illness. With over 20 years experience working with people with physical disabilities and chronic illnesses, my special interests include Traumatic Brain Injury and Spinal Cord Injury survivors and their families. Some have had difficult times in earlier life and want to move beyond those limitations and lead fuller lives. Others are going through rough spots and are looking for someone to talk with outside their family or circle of friends.

As we walk through different seasons of our lives, we may all need caring individuals that can offer interventions, help and/or support during our circumstances. Going further, I believe that we were innately created to be in covenant or relationship with our creator, our family or other social circles that we choose to surround ourselves with. However, it is a very personal choice as to how each one of us chooses to go about this path. My strong belief in this basic aspect of life gave birth to Covenant Intuition Center.

You are stronger, braver, and more resilient then your mind gives you credit for; but sometimes those thoughts and feelings can overwhelm us to the point where we lose ourselves and the things and people we value most. As a therapist, my goal is to allow you to see your emotions and thoughts as just that and to reestablish the connection between your unique and individual values and the behaviors that support these. We as humans are all susceptible to emotional pain, but how we deal with this pain- be it the pain of change, loss, or inexplicable anxiety and hopelessness- can define whether we evolve from these or stay stuck in it.

Psychodynamic Therapists
Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
