BREE KARY, LAC Licensed Associate Counselor
HI, I'M CANDICE
Owner / Supervisor / Counselor
I am the Owner of InnerConnect Counseling, Supervisor and Licensed Professional Counselor practicing in Gilbert, AZ. I earned my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling at Argosy University, and I am also a proud alumna of Arizona State University where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. During my time at ASU, I was honored to serve as the Treasurer and then President of Psi Chi, the International Honors Society in Psychology.
In private practice, I specialize in working with individuals who experience a wide range of issues including anxiety, stress, stage-of-life challenges, faith changes, divorce, self esteem problems, and blended family issues. I also have extensive experience working with high-achieving teens as well as older adults who are faced with chronic health concerns, end of life decision making and changes in abilities.
I believe that the most important aspect of therapy is the trust, respect, and alliance that is created between client and therapist. I hope that you are willing to share your story with me.
