Name and Degree:  Colleen Carr, Ph.D.

Professional Title:  Licensed Clinical Psychologist 
Specialty(s):  I currently provide individual psychotherapy for children, adolescents, and adults, and couple's therapy.  I am available to address concerns related to mood (e.g., depression, bipolar disorder), anxiety, trauma, grief, relationship problems, child behavior and/or social problems, life transitions and stressors, and more. 
Insurance Information:  I do not currently contract with insurance companies.  I will, however, provide clients with a bill each month that reflects fees, diagnostic codes, and other relevant information that can be submitted to insurance companies for potential reimbursement.  

College/University, Graduation Date:  Georgetown University, BA in Psychology, 2007; Arizona State University, MA in Psychology, 2013; Arizona State University, Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, 2016

Continuing Education:  I completed a year-long clinical internship at the Mary A. Rackham Institute at the University of Michigan, where I worked in both the University Center for the Child and Family and the Psychological Center for adults. Currently, I actively pursue continuing education with appreciation for the fact that learning is a lifelong process. I particularly enjoy advancing my knowledge and skill set in the domain of couple's therapy.
Other Info:  I find it most effective to draw together various evidence-based treatment approaches (that research shows help reduce symptoms of distress) to address the unique needs of each client.  I frequently use cognitive-behavioral therapy approaches, which often entail helping clients identify and shift negative ways of thinking (e.g., I am not perfect and, therefore, I am awful/unworthy of love) to more helpful (and accurate) ones.  While therapy often involves change, acceptance can also be a profoundly important component of my work with clients.  As such, I also employ mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches to my work with clients.  My work with couples, meanwhile, is founded in Dr. Sue Johnson's Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and the Gottman method. I consider attachment issues and parenting approaches in my work with children and families, and my work with children typically entails active involvement by parents in the therapy process.
