My name is Carissa Muth and I am an experienced therapist with training and expertise in a variety of areas.  
I look forward to speaking with you and seeing how I might help you with whatever is providing difficulty in your life. 

My areas of expertise include: addiction, trauma, anxiety, depression, stress, anger, and general mental health.  
I am a Registered Social Worker and Provisionally Registered Psychologist.  I have experience working with teenagers, children and adults.  
I also have completed research in addictions and trauma and extra training in play therapy. 
My theory for practice aligns with my research on addictions.  I believe there are underlying issues to most struggles we face.  That means, while I do try to walk you through solutions to your immediate issue, I also will explore the triggers and causes so the problem doesn't come up again.  You see, if I just gave you an answer to your problem, it will come back but if we deal with the underlying issue it will be resolved. 
For those that enjoy technical terms, I use aspects of: Cognitive Behavioural therapy, Solution focused therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Neuropsychotherapy, Play therapy, Attachment therapy, Rogerian therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.  All of these methods and theories add to my integrative approach that allows me to customize my methods to the needs of the clients.  I am creative in adapting empirical methods to the needs of each individual. 
I believe in holistic healing and address aspects of the biological, psychological, and emotional in addressing all issues.   I believe clients are the experts on their own story and therefore we will collaborate on goals and directions. While I might push you in certain areas, I will not force you beyond what you are capable and thereby risk re-traumatization.  
I also believe that not every therapist fits every client.  I would love for you to come and see me and see if we are a fit but I understand if you have to leave afterwards.  Even if we are not a permanent fit, I will help guide you towards the therapist that is right for you.  
I have hope that therapy can help anyone to reach closer to wholeness and happiness.  It is my desire to help you walk through your struggles and help you reach your goals.
