About Me

Care Philosophy

My approach to psychotherapy is to treat everyone with sensitivity and empathy, understand your needs and get results. I believe in teaching skills , learning better ways to cope and communicate and learning self care. I am a good listener but eagerly offer techniques and interventions and guidance when requested. I consider the therapy relationship a partnership that works both ways.

I can’t imagine how I could have handled such a difficult life without Candice! Not only has she counseled me and provided me with unlimited support and direction throughout these many years but she literally has walked beside me and taught me the toughest lesson of all in learning to love myself! I am eternally grateful to this wise and ever so patient therapist who truly has gone beyond all measures in providing me the highest level of care, understanding, and yes, therapeutic love. Mary Lou

It took me years to find a therapist that cared about me and for me. Dr. Porter was that therapist. My time in her care has been incredibly rewarding. Dr. Porter maintains the highest professional standards while demonstrating uncommon empathy. Dr. Porter taught me how to cope with life’s challenges. I loved my time with her and, with her insights and guidance, I now love my time with myself. She has had a profound impact on my life. I will be forever grateful.

She is unable to differentiate between personal and business as a therapist. Her assumptions of the individual lead her to make statements that are off-putting and in turn untherapeutic in their context to the person. That in itself is detrimental to the therapeutic relationship when the person does not feel that they can disclose to the therapist when that information is going to be used against them.
