Marie Carey

I have always had a strong passion to help others, so I obtained a MA in Counselor

Education from Virginia Tech and became a Licensed Clinical Mental Health

Counselor.  I have been fortunate to have had a variety of experiences, including

Intensive In-Home Services, School-Based Therapy, and Outpatient Therapy.  I

have received training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

(EMDR) as well as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) to

be able to serve clients who have experienced trauma in their lifetimes. I believe

that movement can be very healing, so I decided to obtain a yoga teacher

certification so that I am able to incorporate yoga into sessions with my clients.  I

am also passionate about the role that nutrition plays in mental health.


Because I believe the therapeutic relationship is of utmost importance, I want my

clients to feel safe and comfortable with me.  I view each client as a whole person,

so I love to learn about each person’s history and what brings them into our office. 

I utilize various modalities in my treatment, such as EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral

Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, TF-CBT, yoga and mindfulness, and some

play therapy techniques.  I love to support clients with grounding and relaxation

techniques to manage anxiety symptoms.  I also enjoy reading, so I am known to

make book recommendations for my clients as well.  I know that counseling is not

a “one size fits all” and try to best support my clients in the ways they need to be

supported.   As a counselor, I know that my own self-care is essential, and I

encourage my clients to engage in regular self-care in order to promote balance

within their lives. 

In my free time, I love to spend time with my husband and my dog, and you might

see me running on the greenway or on the amazing trails that we have in our area. 

I love being outdoors, and staying active is a big part of my self-care.
