About My Clients

My clients keep hearing "you should see someone" but are terrified at the idea of being judged by a mental health provider. They want to feel the weight off their shoulders but are scared that telling their truth is going to leave them feeling worse than if they just kept it inside. In fact, they've hid their pain a long time because in the past when they've shared; the guilt and judgement came. My clients want someone who will share their values openly so they know they are safe.

My Background and Approach

You want to be you without your "I'm just tired" mask. You want to have control over how you live your life. My goal is to give people that space where they can truly feel welcomed and free to be themselves. I know that takes time and we might slowly work on other things while you build your comfort with me. Ultimately, you get to decide when and if you want to share your deepest pain with me. You also get to tell me how it impacts you, instead of me assuming that it is the root of all your problems. In my experience, at the beginning people will talk about some pieces of their life they feel safe sharing and some of the problems they are having now. I frequently hear what I would call a "trauma response" even if PTSD doesn't quite fit. Often times, after we talk about trauma responses and how people define trauma a light bulb goes off in their head. They make connections, see patterns, and are empowered to regain control over how they respond.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I don't know what it feels like to be you, and I recognize that fact. We might have some similarities, but we each have our own experiences. I'm in a privileged group in many ways (white, heterosexual, cisgender, college education). I've also found myself experiencing discrimination being female and agnostic pushing atheist. I've also been an outsider when I've purposefully put myself in certain spaces. We all deserve to be seen and cared for as our perfectly imperfect selves. I want to help give you that opportunity. You don't have to keep wearing your mask. If you are ready to take care of yourself and feel connected, schedule a free 15 minute call with me at https://schedulewithdrcarney.as.me
