I'm Dr. Cheri Carter. As a therapist, I strive to meet you where you are. You are the expert of your life! My job is to help you identify and acknowledge your strengths, so you can build on them. Everyone has a story. Tell me yours, then decide if we're a match. If so, together we will identify goals and build a plan to accomplish them. Let's work together on your journey to emotional and mental wellness.
I believe that psychotherapy is best done as a collaborative process. I have the training and experience and you, the client, bring all you know about yourself and your life. Together, we develop goals, both long and short term, that hopefully will lead to active awareness, emotional relief and behavioral changes.
Challenge is inevitable in our lives and our relationships. At times we may not know how to cope with or manage all that life brings. My approach to therapy involves warmth, compassion, and unconditional acceptance. Providing a safe space for personal and relational exploration to help clients understand, honor, and respect their deepest needs. Healing is a journey and I provide a space to be open and authentic, to feel what needs to be felt, and to move toward what matters most in your personal life and relationships.
I see problems as opportunities to grow whether I am working with a child, adolescent or adult, individually or in couples or family therapy, and whether it is a single symptom or incident, or long-standing difficulty that brings someone to therapy. I identify and help develop strengths as we explore and change thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and relationship patterns, and resolve difficulties that prevent someone from reaching their goals and creating a fulfilling life. My work with children involves helping them reach the appropriate developmental goals as they build the skills needed for life ahead.

I specialize in mental health issues unique to women, with a particular focus on maternal health. I treat women struggling with infertility, anxiety and/or depression during pregnancy and postpartum as well as perinatal loss and stillbirth.

I also work with adult men and women experiencing depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship issues, eating and body shape related concerns as well as individuals coping with medical diagnoses.

Looking inward isn’t easy. It takes hard work to look at the stuff that keeps getting in the way of having the life you want. Often times it’s fear, other times it’s something more concrete. No matter what barriers you’re facing, together we can work through the fears and accomplish your goals. When we’re suffering from a loss, fighting a personal battle, processing a difficult childhood, facing a scary diagnosis, or other major life transition we all need support to have someone to walk along side us, see the light when we cannot, and hold us until we’re on the other side.
Are you feeling unsure about what you want for yourself? Has your stress and anxiety become intolerable in a way that’s preventing you from enjoying the present and moving towards your desired future? Do you know what your goals are, but you can’t figure out how to reach them? Are you having trouble liking yourself and offering yourself care and compassion? Many of us hit points where we confront injuries from our past or roadblocks in the present that feel too difficult to face. Sometimes our thoughts and emotions can feel unmanageable, or they cause us to lose confidence in our ability to move forward.
I feel that anyone who is looking for guidance and needs someone to help them along their journey is a client that I can help. Everyone of us has struggles and I want to help my clients reach the potential that they know they have and live the life that they always wanted for themselves.
Just because you carry it well, doesn't mean it isn't heavy. You deserve more than just being seen. The world is a scary and ever-changing place. Dealing with uncertainty, transition, and challenges puts stress on relationships, and on personal values. Curiosity, mindfulness, and a dialectical approach makes it possible to find meaning, and even pleasure, in some of the most bleak situations, with the right support.
Growing up, I experienced a mix of Western and South Asian culture and I am continually trying to bridge those cultures together. Being raised as a child of immigrants I possess a unique lens of the world. I understand the complexities and individualized realities first and second generation immigrants face. I help my clients in their identity development and empower their strengths and relationships.
******I offer appointments on Sundays and on weeknights.****** I'm not a stereotypical licensed psychologist. I do not own a clipboard and rarely wear a tie. I am not a bobblehead and I will not ask you, “How does that make you feel?” I am professional yet down to earth and easy to connect with. My goal is to help clients develop skills to not have to see me again by fostering trust, building a therapeutic bond (using humor, at times), and developing a treatment plan with (not for) my clients. I collaborate with others (e.g., family, physicians), when appropriate, to ensure that pieces to the puzzle are not missing.
I work with individuals, families and couples struggling with issues such as Anxiety, Depression, Adjustment Disorders, Asperger's, ADD, ADHD and Family and Marital Conflict. I specialize in working with children, adolescents and families struggling with behavioral and academic issues.
Hi, I'm Kristen. I am an anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, health at every size therapist. I specialize in issues for people with uteruses, depression, trauma and relational difficulties. I am currently accepting new clients. My view of therapy is as a collaborative process between therapist and client, where we use our relationship to work on places where you feel stuck. Together, we will look at how early experiences show up as painful patterns in your current life, and then find new ways of interacting with the world. You are not your trauma. You can break out of the loop you are in, but you don't have to do it alone.
