About Me

My name is Dr. Vicki Carter. I earned my doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Capella University, 2008. I specialize in trauma and mood disorders. My theoretical approaches are Rogerian and Psycho-analytic. Yet I do integrate, Solution Focused, Cognitive Behavioral within my practice. I teach online for Post University and Ottawa. Both experiences provide insight to career counseling . I have conducted therapy for individuals, couples, and adolescents. I am of Christian faith and will integrate ABIDE as apart of healing from a Christian perspective. All religions are accepted here !
I have over 17 years of counseling experiences, most of which from an integrative approach. Integrative care speaks of treating the whole instead of individual aspects. Therefore, this value speaks to exploring the physical and mental health of clients.

Overall, I have expertise in trauma, mood disorders, grief, career counseling, couples counseling, geriatrics to name a few. Clients will be addressed with utmost respect. Please be advised that any messages sent after 10 pm EST, will be reviewed and responded to the next day. Take care!

Reviews

Written by K.A. on Dec 19, 2021 after therapy with Vicki for 5 days

Okay, lemme just tell you, DR. CARTER is so kind. I was afraid initially to seek therapy because I have a lot of non-cookie-cutter issues. I was worried I wouldn't be able to find a therapist who can help me. She is kind, friendly, approachable, and warm. Plus she's funny too! I don't feel intimidated or scared during therapy. I really get the impression that you matter to her. She treats you like you're the only client she has. Her use of Abide meditations is helpful and she continually gives you exercises to work on. I believe that she was brought into my life by God.
