Hi, I’m Carrie.
In June of 2021, after an intense amount of personal work and healing, I made a monumental decision to leave my traditional busy life in Franklin, TN, and move with my husband and kids to Central America, eventually landing in a small community in Puerto Aventuras, Mexico. Living in a tropical environment and raising my kids on fresh fruit and sunshine had been a dream of mine for YEARS, but I was stuck in a mindset that it wasn’t possible. I didn’t even consider it a real option. It came to fruition because I learned to stop thinking in a linear way and began to use curiosity to unlock my mind and my potential. I was able to step out of the box, break free of societal expectations, and manifest the life I truly wanted. Ultimately, I was able to find my inner voice and actually LISTEN.
Shifting to a slow, tropical life may not be your dream, so I’m here to help you figure out what fills your cup and allows you to expand into your full self. I want to help you work through blocks, heal emotional pain, get to know your authentic self and think outside of the box to create the life that you truly want. I’m excited to show you how to shift your perspective so that you feel in control and empowered instead of at the mercy of life’s struggles, no matter what your circumstances are. I want you to thrive.
As a therapist I take a more personable stance, a less clinical and more genuinely curious approach to understanding each individual client. I am trained in Systems Theory, which simply means that as we work together, we will explore your family and personal relationships, behavioral patterns, and life choices to help create balance and healing. I have extensive training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples and EMDR for trauma.
A majority of my sessions are conducted over an online video platform, so I'm able to continue to connect with clients while living outside of the US. Telehealth has been proven to be just as effective as traditional in-person therapy.
