Carter works with individuals from all walks of life and has worked with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, relationship dysfunction, and family conflict, as well as additional life stressors.

She utilizes the approaches of person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma informed care, multicultural competency, and mindfulness. Carter’s hope is to offer a safe environment in which the client feels heard, understood, and validated in their experience of the world, encouraging growth and healing in the process, by providing a supportive and empathetic presence.
