Counseling for Third Culture Kids and Global Nomads A Third Culture Kid (TCK) is someone who spent all or part of childhood in a country other than his passport country and finds that he doesn’t quite fit in his native country or the other countries he has lived in. These people are somewhere in between cultures, or as they are described most frequently, members of a Third Culture. They may be children of Foreign Service officers, military personnel, international business personnel, missionaries or any other parents whose jobs take them and their families overseas.  Many global nomads have problems with establishing long- term relationships, always feeling like an outsider, committing themselves to one place, one job, or one relationship, loss and grief, identity confusion and difficulty focusing on themselves instead of others.  Read more about Carmen’s own TCK experience and her TCK therapy techniques....
Individual Therapy Life isn’t easy. Having to balance several roles simultaneously (parenting, professional, personal, social), dealing with hard times and life transitions, difficult relationships and the stresses of everyday life can take its toll on people. In individual therapy, Carmen will work with you to change what isn’t working anymore and to create the fulfilling and empowered life you desire. Individual therapy (sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling”) is a collaborative process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist in a safe environment to explore feelings, beliefs and behaviors, resolve challenging memories or experiences, identify aspect of their lives they want to change and create a life that authentically reflects who they really are.  People seek therapy for a variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma to dealing with depression or anxiety to simply exploring and experimenting with self growth. Carmen is an experienced, creative and engaging therapist who will partner with you to make the changes you need and create the life you want.  Find out more about individual therapy....  
Marriage Counseling Are you looking to enrich a healthy relationship or to rescue a failing one? Maybe you just want to put some life into a tired one. We are all hard-wired to love and be loved and when our attachment to our chosen partner is threatened we all feel a little crazy.  We can get depressed or anxious, lose sleep, fantasize about being single again or act out sexually or emotionally. When our relationship with our partner is troubled, our whole life seems troubled and nothing will help until we get the relationship right.  Sometimes we need help from an objective, compassionate and knowledgeable professional to help us get the relationship back on track. Carmen will partner with you to heal the hurt and disappointment, channel the anger constructively, get to the real core of the problem and restore happiness and sanity to your relationship. Whether you are married, living together, single, gay or straight, Carmen can bring over thirty years of experience working with couples to help you resolve your differences and create a healthy and happy future together.  Explore marriage counseling further....
