Rona Carter, Ph.D.
Hello and welcome! Seeking help and deciding to begin therapy is a difficult decision, requiring courage, strength, and vulnerability. My name is Rona Carter, Ph.D., and I’m a Michigan-based limited licensed psychologist with experience working with youth (ages 8 to 18), families, young adults, and individuals in the LGBTQ+ community providing individual and group therapy.
I earned my Ph.D. in applied developmental psychology from Florida International University. My clinical training and experience have focused on anxiety, depression, everyday stress, relationship concerns, biological transitions (e.g., puberty), and identity exploration and development. I have a strong passion to support and empower adolescents, young adults, and individuals in the LGBTQ+ community as they separate from their families of origin, cultivate a healthy identity, and begin to create their own journey. It’s in these moments that we are best able to identify past patterns that no longer serve us. It is exciting to be part of these paths to self-discovery and independence.
I am also a certified yoga teacher registered with the Yoga Alliance. I focus on the integration of mind and body to enhance mental health by drawing on yogic principles and practices, such as physical yoga postures, meditation, breathing techniques, and relaxation exercises. I also utilize a variety of evidence-based therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, based on your individual needs and goals. My therapeutic approach focuses on connecting with individuals challenged by their current circumstances to enrich lives, strengthen relationships, and build healthy identities. Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship issues, stressful life transitions, low self-esteem, or gender dysphoria, I am here to help and support you through your journey of growth and healing through mindfulness meditation, reflection, processing, and skill-building.
I am incredibly invested in my work and am committed to lifelong holistic learning. For an appointment, please contact our office.
