Rick Carter    

Mental Health Professionals

You need a therapist with a lot of experience to assess your situation and help you develop a plan to meet your individual needs. I have worked in a variety of therapy settings including outpatient, residential, day treatment and inpatient hospital with all ages giving me a unique perspective. My treatment approach is evidenced-based meaning that it has been researched and proven to work. We will be working together using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and integrating dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and other Mindfulness-based skills to stabilize and solve your current problems in effective ways. These skills will help create a better life for you. Talking about the issues are important, but learning new coping skills and taking action with an effective plan is what will create positive and permanent change. I support my clients to move ahead in their lives by helping them develop goals for personal change and a pathway to get there. With children, their families will usually need to be involved in their treatment to support change.

**In my private practice I have the flexibility to get new clients in quickly and see continuing clients weekly as necessary to support any urgent clinical needs.

Leave me a confidential message by phone if I am not available when you call or a confidential email and I will speak with you within 24 hours.
