Carla Marquez Ripley MA, LCPC
Therapist | Director of Clinical Development
I'm blessed by the opportunity to support people who are brave enough to consider seeking therapy. My personal and professional experiences shaped my desire to support those who have recently been feeling stuck in some area of life, struggling with life transitions, and those who desire change and healing. In supporting people who are open to learning how they can be more active in altering their current chapter, I can best walk alongside them amidst their renewed strength, understanding, resilience, and hope.
I have extensive experience working with children and adults struggling with ADHD, behavioral difficulties, anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationships, and trauma, and I'm a Registered Play Therapist (RPT). I enjoy joining clients in exploring and connecting important elements of their stories to highlight strength and resiliency.
Therapy can be an intimidating process and identifying a therapist that is the best fit for you, your child, or your family can feel just as overwhelming. The relationship that is necessary for healing, support, and learning is essential to you navigating this chapter. My personal experiences shaped my approach to nurturing an authentic connection.
