Let me share something I often tell my clients: Our sessions together are a judgment-free zone. You know, as Black women, we’ve all had our fair share of being judged, talked about, hearts broken, tired, and even dismissed.

It’s tough out there sometimes.

But here, in session with me, you’ll find that one brave space where you can be yourself without fear of judgment. It’s like sitting down with that one person who gets it.

That’s the kind of therapy I offer you.

Let’s rewrite the script.

We all know the world can feel heavy sometimes.

In this brave space, we can unpack that baggage together.

We’ll explore your thoughts, feelings, and the unique experiences that shape you as a Black woman.

Work drama, relationship struggles, even just finding your place – no matter what you’re facing, I’m right here with a listening ear and a lot of therapeutic support.

Take a journey to joy.

In therapy, we create a space where you can finally breathe. In my therapy sessions, I use various methods to help you on your journey. One specific approach I use is Rational Living Therapy, where we work together to identify and change any unhelpful thoughts you might have. This approach can lead to healthier ways of thinking and feeling.

We also do role-playing, like acting out different situations in a safe space. Learning how you act in various situations can help you see things from different perspectives and practice new skills.

I also give homework so you can continue your growth outside our sessions. Plus, I sometimes use hypnosis and teach you self-hypnosis to help you relax deeply and make positive changes at a deeper level.

I aim to give you various tools to support your emotional well-being and personal growth.

About Me

AdminHi There!

Welcome to a space where your journey to healing and emotional intimacy begins.

I’m Twanna Carter, a licensed therapist with over 15 years of experience dedicated to empowering Black women, seeking deeper connections, healing from past hurts, and yearning for a life filled with authentic relationships.

As part of my philosophy, I believe that your impressive career and success are a testament to your strength and capabilities. Seeking deeper connections and understanding doesn’t diminish your accomplishments; it enhances your life.

My approach centers on providing a safe and nurturing environment where you can explore your emotions, heal from past traumas, and build the fulfilling relationships you deserve.

We share similar journeys.

Like you, I’ve faced the challenges of feeling isolated, misunderstood, and exhausted from maintaining appearances.

My journey of self-discovery and healing has fueled my passion for helping women like you.

I understand the courage it takes to seek vulnerability and emotional intimacy, and I’m here to guide you every step of the way.

My approach depends on your needs.

Using a combination of Rational Living Therapy, Brainspotting, and Hypnosis, I tailor my approach to meet your unique needs.

I help you navigate the complexities of past hurts and trust issues, empowering you to embrace your emotional intelligence and desire for personal growth.

Together, we’ll work toward breaking down the barriers that hold you back, allowing you to connect deeply with yourself and others.

My professional training and experience includes the following:

I am a lifelong learner who loves science. That’s why I majored in Zoology. I have a master’s in Rehabilitation Counseling from the University of Alabama, Birmingham, and a Ph.D. in Human Services from Capella University.

My master’s degree and counseling licenses allow me to practice therapy in AL, MD, NJ, and VA.

In addition to training in Brainspotting, I am a National Guild of Hypnotists Certified Hypnotherapist, Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional, Clinical Trauma Treatment Professional, and an Anger Management Specialist II.

These are a few of my favorite things.

I find immense joy in exploring new cultures and experiencing the beauty of our diverse world.

Traveling allows me to expand my perspective, deepen my empathy, and eat cake and various pastries!

Whether it’s the serene beaches of Hawaii, the bustling streets of Seoul, or the vibrant markets of Thailand, each journey enriches my understanding of human nature and informs my taste buds of the wonders of baked goods worldwide.

Your path to fulfillment awaits.

You are self-aware, resilient, and ready for emotional intimacy.

Let’s embark on this journey together, where you’ll find the support and guidance you need to live a life of authenticity, deeper connections, and true happiness.
