About me

My name is Rashawnda Carey. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Sociology at the University of Virginia and Master's in Social Work at Barry University. I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have over 11 years of therapy and social work experience. I have pursued different training to hone my skills by becoming trained and specialized in the following treatment approaches: EMDR, Trauma-Focused, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, and Narrative Therapy.

Throughout the years, I have had the pleasure of working with teens, adults, families, and couples. I am well-versed in treating clients that suffer from depression, anxiety, grief and loss, anger management, mood disorders, and trauma-related events.

My philosophy is that therapy is most successful when there is a trusting and mutual relationship between the therapist and the individual. My goal is to create a safe place where you can feel free to share any issues you are struggling with, knowing that you will never be judged.

Furthermore, I want you to have an environment where you can learn about yourself through processing and coping techniques to help you overcome life's obstacles and achieve your goals. I am happy that you are taking the first step toward living life on your terms. I look forward to accompanying you on this journey.

I have been working with Rashawnda on and off for almost a year now. She is smart. She can be confronting but always in a gentle, respectful and sensitive way. To me, this is the key to her value as a counsellor. By her encouraging me to face what is uncomfortable, I can make progress. To have Rashawnda supporting me through these challenges is like having a secret weapon for the work I do on myself. Her skill as a counsellor is critical to my health and wellbeing.

I absolutely love my down to earth therapist! She is so good natured, very thorough, and shows her concern about everything. Her probing questions are great questions that not only shows she understands what is going on, but that she wants to understand every detail so that she can better discuss with me what is going on. She, in her presence, reminds me that I'm not alone and that I'm not judged and I couldn't be more grateful.
