Carissa Cano, MA, LPC-S

*Due to COVID-19 all appointments will be virtual via Doxy.me

I believe in empowering my clients to trust their intuition. The collaborative process of cultivating insight involves a delicate balance of deep listening, constructive feedback, and awareness building. Integrating a whole person approach, my goal is to help you move toward positive change and greater balance in life.

I work holistically, integrating the emotional, mental, spiritual, physiological, and neurological components while working towards the client’s goals in therapy.

The most important part of having a good therapy experience is the relationship between the therapist and client. Take the time to interview a few counselors to find the best fit for you. Contact me if you are interested in a free 20 minute in-person consultation.
