About Me

Greetings! My name is Carisma Garrett. I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 10 years of experience in the human services industry, working closely with families, adults, adolescents, and children. I developed a passion for working with children and families when I was a child welfare work 12 years ago. I would be very interested in working with your family to address any underlining concerns that are currently present. I have experience working with families experiencing homelessness, child welfare, and parent-child relational problems. I also have experience working with adolescents that have a variety of mental health and behavioral diagnoses, serious criminal offenses and have abused drugs.

My counseling style involves reflective listening, reframing, empathy, effective communication, and reinforcements. My approach combines evidence-based behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, family systems approaches, mindfulness and solution focused therapy. I am passionate and unbiased about assisting families, so they can function independently with stability in their personal lives.

Insightful, friendly, knowledgeable, caring, skilled, thoughtful. I could continue the list but I only have so many words. Charisma Garrett has been the best counsellor I have ever had and continues to change my life week by week.

Carisma speaks to me in a very honest way, and looks out for me like a sister would. She has helped me see things for what they are, the good and the bad within myself and around me.

Cariama is a great therapist much better than the counsellor I have for school. She didn’t dismiss my concerns and helped me find solutions. I wish I had more time with her but sadly I am broke student. If I have the money I would like to come back and if possible get her again as my therapist. Thank you very much cariama for the help you gave me good bye.
