Kathy Carter

I am a trauma and addictions counselor who helps teenagers and adults recover from obstacles in their life and regain confidence, connection, and stability at home, school, work and family.

Life happens to everyone, and then the question becomes, where do I go from here? How do I move on? Or situations and events have been avoided, telling yourself you are okay. Now realizing it is not okay and need help, guidance, and someone to talk to. Let’s talk; I am here to listen, guide, and show you; you already have the answers.

You have the power to make changes within yourself. My ideal client is someone who is at a crossroads and ready to explore and look for change. I enjoy working with clients to help them recognize their strengths.

I am a compassionate clinician that believes in self-determination and autonomy. I provide mental health and chemical dependency assessments, treatment planning, and individual and group counseling via telehealth and in person. I take a client-centered approach guiding clients to show self-compassion and empowering them for change.

I assist clients in identifying their life stressors, reflecting on self-awareness, and enhancing healthy coping skills. I am trained in various modalities, MI, CBT, sand tray, and EMDR, to work through the challenging areas of substance abuse, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, and more.

I am a creative, results-oriented and passionate therapist with over 25 years of experience in social work and mental health services. I specialize in working with teens, adults and families who have multiple or complex diagnoses, addiction, and trauma.

I also focus on recovery and harm reduction. I have extensive training in sand tray, chemical dependency, trauma, and social work and am a Certified Trauma Professional, Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor, Sand Tray Certified and EMDR trained.
