Carrie Thornton MA, LPCC, NCC
There is so much suffering in the world. We all have painful experiences. They are part of the human condition. I believe it’s what we do with these difficulties that determines not only the extent of our suffering, but how we are able to transform our pain and loss into strength, power, and growth. The most impactful experience we can provide each other is to be fully present and listen to one another's stories with open hearts and minds. Through transformative relationships we find hope and effect change. This is the gift I would like to give to you.
I am living my lifelong dream of being a professional counselor after pursuing a career in business for many years. I obtained my Master of Arts in Counseling, Clinical Mental Health from Regis University following my counseling internship with People House in the organization’s Affordable Counseling Program. I have mentored women in prison through the Center for Spirituality at Work's Making Choices Program and currently provide bereavement support to survivors who have lost their loved ones as a volunteer with Exempla Lutheran Hospice.
I am honored to work with clients from all walks of life and warmly welcome individuals of all cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender identities.
Please feel free to contact me via phone or e-mail to arrange a 10 minute phone consultation free of charge.
My fee for a 50 minute session is $100. Payment is due at the time of service via cash, check, debit/credit card, or HSA/FSA card.

I counsel adults from person centered, existential, mindfulness-based, attachment, experiential, and cognitive theoretical perspectives. I utilize various treatment modalities tailored to your specific needs.
What does this mean to you?
I meet you where you’re at, and we formulate your goals for therapy together.
I believe that that you are capable of growth and change at any point in your life.
No matter how difficult your circumstances, you always have a choice in how you respond to those circumstances.
Experiencing your core emotions of fear, anger, sadness, disgust, joy, excitement and sexual excitement is the essential to reaching an openhearted state in which you are calm, curious, connected, compassionate, confident and courageous.
Your mind, body, and spirit are equally important to your health.
Practicing awareness and acceptance of your thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations on purpose in the present moment is key to alleviating your suffering.
All change and growth are born of acceptance and compassion.
I look forward to accompanying you on your journey of healing, growth and change!
