Carissa believes that working from a trauma informed, person-centered approach encourages a safe and collaborative experience between therapist and client. I have experience working with clients who have experienced trauma, issues of substance abuse, addiction, anxiety, depression, interpersonal issues, and self-esteem. I use CBT and DBT based therapies to help clients learn practical coping and communication skills. This focuses on the integration and understanding of life experiences which brings a deeper understanding and acceptance of self.
