Meet Cara

I know from personal experience that moments of change can be destabilizing. I also believe they can be opportunities for introspection, healing, and growth. My goal is to provide the support you need to slow down, look inward, and move forward.

My Approach

As your therapist, I’ll approach our work with a combination of clinical skill, compassion, and curiosity. Together, we’ll explore how your past has shaped your present. We’ll try out new ways of thinking, behaving, and relating. And we’ll face change together as we work towards greater meaning and connection in your life and relationships.

I use an integrative approach grounded in psychodynamic and relational therapies. This means I’m curious about how past experiences show up your relationships with yourself and others, and I’ll help you identify and challenge patterns that are no longer serving you. I also incorporate body-based techniques, mindfulness skills, and tools from cognitive behavioral therapy to help you manage stressful situations, negative thinking, and difficult emotions.

About Me

When I’m not seeing clients, I enjoy beachcombing, cooking, exploring my neighborhood, practicing yoga, reading, and spending time with my husband and our cat.
