Carla earned both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in Social Work from Arizona State University and specializes in adverse childhood experiences as well as grief and loss. As a holistic practitioner who believes that when emotional disruptions begin early in childhood go unresolved, they create unhealthy behaviors, lifestyles and future outcomes.

Carla integrates several mediation and holistic modalities when working with clients of all ages and backgrounds, including extensive work with families and teens, helping them to resolve communication issues and reconnect in healthy, balanced ways. She believes the only way to heal is to begin to allow yourself to feel.
 

You can follow Carla on Facebook where she hosts Connect with Carla every Tuesday morning at 9:00 am, and follow her on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn for daily guidance and inspiration. 
 

Carla is the proud mother of four beautiful grown and married children, "Nan" of eight grandchildren (her "littles") and resides in Mesa, Arizona. She helps clients and families throughout Arizona and across the U.S.
