My name is Carrie and I am a Marriage and Family Therapist at the Counseling Center of West Michigan.
I provide a variety of helping services and treatment modalities to help clients move forward in life. I am Gottman Level 1 trained, have trauma training, and I am certified to administer the Prepare/Enrich marital and couples assessment. My passions include Anxiety Disorders and couple's work, however I work with individuals and families dealing with a variety of issues.
I believe developing the therapeutic relationship is the first step in the therapeutic process. Per my family systems background, I believe clinical concerns impact both the identified client and those surrounding them; therefore, I approach treatment with consideration of the client's role and connections in their life. I believe in integration and like to utilize a variety of therapeutic theories to best fit the client's needs, particularly Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems, and Mindfulness.
I am passionate about the work I do, and feel confident in my abilities to help clients reach their desired goals. If you are looking to get unstuck and want to feel better, then that is all you need to make progress. It all starts with a single step and I look forward to walking alongside you!
