Kim Carter

Outpatient Psychotherapist

Professional Philosophy

My approach to therapy is holistic, co-creative, kind, and practical. My goal is to provide clients with skills and insight to cope with both the everyday stressors and the big life events with as much ease as possible. I aim to provide a safe space for developing an understanding of mental health symptoms, how they interfere with living the life you want, and what you can do about it.
