Professional statement

Dr. Carrie specializes in helping people more easily manage life's inevitable chaos. She is an expert in helping people learn how to make long lasting, effective changes and to overcome life challenges such as anxiety, trauma, and difficult relationships. She focuses on increasing your understanding of yourself, and teaches you how to be more skillful at communicating with others in your life.

Dr. Carrie is a psychologist, licensed in Colorado, who has been in private practice since 2001. She uses EMDR to treat trauma and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) to help clients improve their psychological flexibility to solve problems and adopt a healthier approach to the world.

Just released, Dr. Carrie's book, “Self-Help On The Go” is what her clients asked her to write: easy to read, simple to apply, inexpensive tactics that really work to make life easier to manage. The book offers ninety-nine ways to leverage emotional flexibility to become more resilient and improve how you habitually respond to life’s most common problems. It is designed for in-the-moment use and is based on Dr. Carrie’s 20 years in private practice, teaching real people these tools all the time.

The office is open Monday through Thursday with in person and virtual meetings available. Parking is free, and the location is central and easy to access, close to downtown Denver.

Diversity of thought, sexuality, ethnicity, politics and background are both welcomed and celebrated here. Dr. Carrie is open minded, and interested in working through your concerns, without imposing judgment or limitations on you.

Message to clients

Are you ready for some change in your life? Interested in getting the upper hand over anxiety or trauma? Ready to feel more in charge in your world? Let me help you identify what is working and what isn't working so well in your life, and then figure out what to do about it. Lasting change is possible.

I purposefully offer a number of different services at a variety of price points to make accessing my approach to living your best life affordable and easy to do. Services include my book, Self Help on the Go (available from Amazon), a new online self-guided course, in person therapy, and team workshops, up to large scale keynote speeches. There is likely a level of service that makes sense for your needs and budget. Please reach out and see what part of my practice might be the right fit for you. I look forward to connecting!

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) - Healing painful experiences and memories from the past

Trauma - Coping and healing after threatening or scary events, such as witnessing accidents or experiencing sexual, verbal, emotional, or physical abuse

Habit change - Habits are the behaviors we repetitively do. Positive habits lead us closer to the type of life we want to live. Negative habits tend to lead us away from the life we want. In therapy we build positive habits and try to decrease negative habits.
