About Carole Petiet

I am a Holistic practitioner who accompanies people in developing inner attunement to their body, emotions, mind, spirit, and relationships.
My aim is to be helpful with others in the ways they seek -- including to know their true thoughts, feelings, desires, and goals. I believe in loving deeply and fully in my work and life while at the same time holding needed boundaries for safety and privacy.

34 years psychotherapy practice that includes developmental, depth relational, and cognitive behavioral therapy; work with individuals from children through elderly, couples, and families.

I began working in the helping professions as a nurse 43 years ago and am thrilled to have added somatic experiencing to my practice 13 years ago which feels like having come full circle in my own integration process as well as helpfulness with others. 

Treatment foci include developmental trauma; chronic and acute illnesses and pain, including cancer; death and dying, grief, divorce; anxiety and mood disorders; complex PTSD including physical, emotional, sexual abuse and assault, accident recovery, and medical trauma; addictions (experience as inpatient nurse coordinator, outpatient training and research director, and currently do outpatient addictions treatment); sports psychology (am also personally an avid athlete).

Additional training: hypnosis, sandplay (nonverbal/symbolic) therapy, and EMDR. Have massage table in office for hands-on SE work.

I do minimal email and texting with clients out of concern for confidentiality, so please call if you have questions or want to schedule an appointment.
