Shara L Carter, LPCC, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Chesapeake, VA


I enjoy working with couples prior to marriage, at the onset of marriage, and deep into years of marriage. Every stage of a marital relationship has its own set of unique challenges and pitfalls.
I use many of Gottman's tools and methods in couples counseling. I also use many mindfulness, CBT, and DBT strategies
In couples counseling, the "couple" is my client, not one individual or another. I am on BOTH individual's sides, not one or the other. I work with two people for the good of the one unit, the "coupleship". I assist couples in building their communication skills, managing conflict resolution skills, identifying the source of the issue(s), and so much more.
I realize that life hits us at the speed of light, and often finding time to work through those challenges that come at us and tear away at the HEART of the coupleship is difficult. Taking time in counseling, with an unbiased third party that listens and helps each individual hear the other's heart, is where we start. Then I help you take the skills and tools home to work together as a team to identify issues, communicate through them, and start rebuilding.
