About Carrie Becker
licensed professional counselor
Hi! I’m Carrie, a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have spent the last 20+ years working to help children, adolescents, adults, and couples find healing and growth in their day-to-day lives. I enjoy working with teens and adults who are struggling with intense anxiety as they go through difficult and at times unexpected life changes. As a therapist, I strive to help people to grow and to use their own knowledge and skills to make healthy and positive choices for their future. My job is to encourage and guide individuals, couples, and families to determine what their real goals are and to help them to move toward those goals in achievable ways. Counseling can be a difficult and scary process to start but I will work with you to get the changes you are seeking in your life.
As a frequent traveler and wandering spirit myself, my approach to the therapy process surrounds my belief that “not all who wander are lost.” I feel that at times, we take many different paths in search of who we want to be, where we want to go, and how we want to get there. Some of these paths lead us to beautiful places, others do not.

Virtual (Telehealth) counseling appointments are covered by Most United, Highmark Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Aetna, & UPMC plans.
As a therapist, I put my energy into helping people travel those paths and find their way back from what might have been a darker path. I will encourage and support, but I am also known to challenge a person from selling themselves short. I can be a pushing force, encouraging clients to take better care of themselves and their lives. If you are ready to put in the work, I would love to help you explore your past travels, map out your goals, and take the road less traveled to a destination worthy of your dreams but perhaps with less baggage.
