Carlie S. Ricci, LMFT, EMDR Trained
Carla began her journey working in the healing arts over 25 years ago as a student of non-mainstream traditions including Shamanic studies (she is NOT a shaman) Reiki, Yoga, Conscious Dance and Meditation. She participated in a three-year professional development program based in Gestalt Therapy and Bioenergetics prior to receiving her Masters of Family Therapy degree from Southern Connecticut State University and has experience working with individuals, couples, adolescents and families from a variety of different backgrounds. As part of her formal training at SCSU, Carla was also certified as a Gestalt Therapist.
Following graduate school, Carla has since completed requirements to be an EMDR Trained Therapist, Certified JourneyDance Facilitator, and Family/Systemic Constellations Facilitator. She has significant personal experience with plant medicine (specifically ayahuasca) and is passionate about helping individuals prepare for and integrate plant medicine experiences.
Carla specializes in working with trauma, anxiety, life transitions, spiritual exploration and personal growth. She is trained in a systemic and structural approach and believes in working with her clients to create and achieve goals that are relevant to their daily experience. (She does not work with clinical depression, or eating disorders.)
Carla is committed to providing clients with a supportive, safe and sacred space to pursue their goals, heal that which needs healing and make positive changes in their lives.
