I am a psychotherapist with experience working with clients across the lifespan who have experienced a variety of issues and concerns. I enjoy working with each of my clients to establish a personal therapeutic relationship that they find helpful for them. I believe that the needs of each of my clients are distinct and what one person may experience as helpful may not be helpful to another. I strive to encourage a therapeutic relationship that is client directed and consider the experience of psychotherapy as a vehicle being driven by each unique client.

You make it look so easy, but you are tired. Whether at work, with family or with friends, you are often the person keeping everything together. No matter the task, you will get it done, but it has been exhausting putting your feelings and needs aside for the sake of everyone else. You know you need something different, but you aren’t sure what. The thought of saying “no” or revealing that you don’t have it all together is too scary. Oftentimes liberation is on the other side of scary… and you deserve liberation!

Being a whole hearted human with an open heart and an open mind can feel like an assault on the soul in this world. Having a heart can leave you feeling like you are the problem and is leading to many emotionally healthy people being labeled as "depressed" and "anxious". If you are operating in this world and you aren't feeling these things, then THAT might indicate a true problem. I do not believe the presence of feelings indicates a medical diagnosis. I do not believe that just because you feel something it means there is something medically wrong with you. People are more resilient then they know. Proper support means everything.

Relationships require work. You may be working hard, but if that work is destructive -- such as excessive conflict, worry, negativity, blaming or guilt, these actions and thoughts are breaking down, not building, healthy relationships. I concentrate on developing and sustaining positive motivation and behavior. In therapy with me, couples and individuals can expect thoughtful, knowledgeable support and direct guidance to make your work constructive. I will lend strength when needed, and, will just as quickly 'call you' on counterproductive behavior. This is a dynamic process.

Facing the challenges of grief and loss is something that most of us have or will experience in our life time. Grief is a natural response to loss. It is experienced differently by each person. There are many times when people can successfully adjust to the loss and move forward with the love and support of family, friends, and community. However, there are times when people can become stuck in the grief process and need professional support to adjust. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in North Carolina, Certified Grief Counselor. and a Certified Grief Recovery Practitioner. I am here to help you do your healing work.

If you're seeking an active therapist who does more than just listen then we're probably a good match. I practice strategic goal-focused therapy. You can verify this by watching my videos, reading my book chapters online and reading about my PTSD work at: www.carycounseling.net. My two specialities are EMDR for PTSD and marriage counseling. I have published in both areas. The EMDR International Association has certified my competence and my theory on the psychophysiological basis for EMDR was published in the Journal of EMDR Practice & Research. My book "The Marriage First Aid Kit" has helped thousands of troubled marriages.
I treat a wide variety of clinical disorders such as depression, anxiety, OCD, and personality disorders. However, I specialize in the treatment of addiction to drugs, alcohol, and sexually compulsive behaviors better known as “sex addiction.” The reason I don’t prefer that term is because it oversimplifies both the subjective experience and the symptoms. For example, overuse of pornography, or countless hours spent browsing single’s ads online doesn’t necessarily involve sex, but it can be compulsive.
