Change is Inevitable. Growth is Optional.

Online Coaching & Counseling

Hello, I’m Carmen Isais.


My work (and this website) is dedicated to sharing evidence-based, psychology resources and tools meant to move you from surviving– to healing– to thriving.


I provide deep, powerful coaching and psychotherapy services. I help individuals reach goals and overcome challenges in their lives. My practice reflects the values of inclusiveness and respect toward all people.



I am trained and experienced in providing therapy for an extensive range of problems and concerns, including:

  • Mindfulness-based Resiliency Training
  • Stress Management / Coping Skills
  • Relationship Conflict
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Anger Management
  • Grief / Loss
  • Trauma Disorders

In addition to the above services, I have particular interest and experience in working with Trauma, PTSD, attachment/relationship issues, and couples work.

Integrative Psychotherapy that fosters
resiliency and science-based tools for change.

I tailor my treatment approaches to specifically address the goals, issues, personality styles and preferences of each individual client. Additionally, with respect to formalized psychotherapy interventions, I have been trained and/or credentialed in many areas, including the following techniques:

  • Attachment/Interpersonal Neurobiology
  • Brain Plasticity & the Science of Change
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Clinical Hypnotherapy
  • EMDR
  • Brainspotting
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Interpersonal Therapy
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT)

In terms of clinical orientation, I regard myself an integrative/psychodynamic coach, mentor and facilitator. I draw from many therapeutic strategies and models to collaboratively craft an approach with you that is focused on your unique goals, personality, and preferences.

In this culture we often believe we should “do it on our own,” and if that fails, then “just give me the pill to fix it.” Seeking psychotherapy is a positive step towards a more sustained sense of well-being.

Integrative psychotherapy is an approach to healing and easing life’s problems by increasing one’s resilience and personal resources.

John Hopkims School  of Medicine


In my experience, psychotherapy at its best is like dual meditation - it's like a container in which you can be compassionate and mindful toward yourself.
