Carrie credits her graduate school professors for impacting her approach to mental healthcare. “It was their passion for therapy and their ability to share that passion that led me to believe in what I do,” she says. “They demonstrated that being a therapist is much more than private practice, and offers the opportunity to positively impact so many lives.”

Clinical Expertise

Carrie has extensive training in Attachment-Based Family Therapy, which gives her with a lens through which to conceptualize the family dynamic and establish concrete goals for her clients and their families. She is also trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and in EMDR, which she uses in both individual and group sessions. Before joining the Newport team, Carrie worked in a partial hospitalization program for clients with severe mental illness, starting as a group therapist and working her way up to clinical director. In that role, she was responsible for a client caseload as well as managing the other clinicians in the department and training new therapists.
