Cherese Carter, M.Ed., LCPC, LPC


C. Carter

Let’s be honest! For many of us, fear, anxiety, overwhelm and perfectionism have been running the show of our lives. Instead of being able to live the life we desire, we simply exist from one overwhelming moment to another. Living this way is not only draining, but compounded by the shame that our life is out of our control. Thus we find ourselves in a constant cycle of overthinking everything, never feeling good enough, and criticizing our every move.
