Care Philosophy

My company is called Compassionate Counseling for a reason.  I strive to exhibit a caring attitude with all I meet.  Rapport of client and counselor is an important factor in counseling.  I want to facilitate a client in solving their problems, yet be the "flashlight" in showing a client what needs to be illuminated.  I have genuine concern and compassion for the dilemmas each client faces.

Soni McCarty says...

As a therapist well-trained in play therapy, I enjoy working with children of all ages. Therapy motivates children to tell their story, feel safe, say no to abuse, know what to do with intense feelings, tolerate making mistakes, not act out as much and be proud of their accomplishments. I encourage children and teens to share what they have learned each session with their parents to keep them in the loop. I also do frequent parent/child and family sessions during the course of therapy.

With 15 years experience, one of my core areas of expertise is trauma and abuse.  I have had extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Informed care and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
