Professional statement

Cary Twichell is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Providence, RI who specializes in holistic therapy with a focus on trauma. She also has extensive experience in relationships, anxiety, depression, spirituality, grief and loss, adjustment disorders, and expressive therapies, including art therapy. She also frequently works with college students and young adults who are exploring their purpose in the world and what they want out of life.

Cary is passionate about helping her clients better understand the mind-body connection and how one affects the other. She utilizes trauma-informed care that focuses on meeting her clients where they are, offering a safe space, helping them develop emotional regulation. She also frequently utilizes mindfulness and grounding exercises to help her clients become more present and learn healthier coping strategies.

Cary offers a safe and confidential space for clients to explore themselves—both their gifts and strengths, and the places they might be stuck, unhappy, or not living to their fullest potential. Before starting her private practice, she worked at an agency where she focused on sexual and domestic violence. She graduated from Lesley University with a Master's in Counseling Psychology and an Advanced Certificate in Trauma Studies.

Message to clients

People come to therapy for many different reasons, but I think what most of us are looking for is a place to get to know our own inner landscape with support and safety. This is a time for you to slow down and really connect with yourself, just as you are. You may begin therapy because of difficulty, loss, or pain; but I think you'll discover a lot about your strength and resiliency as well, and come to feel more alive and more engaged in all areas of your life.
