Phyllis Carrera, MS, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta
I help individuals motivated to change their lives or relationships--to break unhealthy patterns, eliminate emotional pain, or heal from a significant event that has taken over their life. With deep respect, tender regard, and a healthy dose of humor, I help you draw on your strength, foster emotional resilience, deepen self-awareness, and reshape your identity to live the life you want to live. With my encouragement, you'll identify barriers that keep you stuck, release emotions that weigh you down, and make empowering choices that free you from the past and create a promising new future.
Unique to the field of psychotherapy, I integrate 30+ years of professional experience in education, business, life coaching and counseling. I incorporate mindfulness and experiential therapies, along with traditional techniques, to help individuals overcome adversity and renew their lives.
A client summed up the result of our relationship, "You enabled me to re-discover myself, to look where I dare not before. Your guidance and insight have gotten me to the next level. I'm a much better person knowing you."

Growth Group: Seasons of Renewal

Opportunity for growth awaits us at key junctures in life. Time passes and we find ourselves in "unexpected places" asking ourselves, Why me? What now? What next? We want to move forward, but the path is unclear. We feel stuck, confused, fearful, or overwhelmed. We know we need to make a change--but how? If you're seeking clarity and encouragement, then this structured, yet fluid group process is for you. Key themes explored include: awareness, desire, truth, courage, and commitment. Email Phyllis to learn more.
