Cari Ciccarella is a Licensed Professional Counselor with extensive experience working with children and families with complex trauma. She has worked with individuals with various mental health issues in foster care and adoption, outpatient, in-home and school settings. Cari is trauma focused and has a strength based approach to her therapy. Specialized training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Attachment Theory are the foundation of her practice. However, not one approach fits all and therefore, Cari has additional trainings and experience with several other modalities. Cari’s primary interest is to help individuals and their families identify and strengthen their own ability to help themselves, leading to the shifts in perspective that allows for greater understanding of our self and promotes true, permanent healing.
