Hi, I'm Carrie

I am an independently licensed clinical social worker [LCSW].

I have been working in the mental health field for my entire career; I am constantly working to support clients on their mental health journey.

My training began at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts. 

There I double majored in Psychology and English.

After completing my undergraduate degree, I began working in the field, working directly with adults managing a severe and persistent mental illness diagnosis.

This fieldwork confirmed my desire to continue my dream of becoming a therapist.

So I pursued a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work at Simmons College Graduate School of Social Work in Boston, Massachusetts. I studied couples counseling, family counseling, trauma, mental illness, social policy, and advocacy.

I have worked and trained in Maine and Massachusetts in various settings, including community counseling agencies, hospital settings, and in supervisory roles.

I enjoy the flexibility of a Private Practice where I can balance my work schedule and other roles as a partner to my husband and mother to my daughter, dog mom, novice gardener, family member, and community member.


My Approach:

One of the first steps in therapy is to build a professional relationship to support the therapeutic work.

To begin, I feel it is crucial to find the right match. I see an essential function of my role as ensuring I offer my clients a service that meets their needs.

This means I check in consistently with my clients to ensure we are constantly working toward their goals.

We seek a therapist during a challenging time in our lives, or we are searching for support when our relationships are in distress. 

Whether we work together to work through short-term goals or it is a longer-term therapeutic process, it is my job to continue to assess and collaborate with you to ensure we stay on track toward reaching our goals.

In my profession, I am always trying to “work myself out of a job” as your therapist so that together we can process current struggles, learn skills, and once those goals are complete, we can close our work together. 

Professional Development

In addition to my formal education, I continue to engage in advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy [EFT].

I also engage in local and national training in Ethics, Intimate Partner Violence, working with LBGTQIA+ couples, policy and social justice topics, and many more. These trainings are part of maintaining my professional license and keeping me abreast of the most recent treatments and issues related to psychotherapy.

I also engaged in regular professional supervision in either a group or individual format to receive confidential consultation to provide the best services for my clients.

EFT Maine

I am honored to be the Director of Communication and Outreach for EFT Maine the professional community of EFT practitioners here in our state. My role on the board includes maintaining membership registration and membership announcements. I work to facilitate membership engagement and grow our social media posting to improve EFT Maine's visibility in the field.
