Phyllis Carrera, MS, NCC, LAPC, CRC

Phyllis works with individuals experiencing life transitions and recovering from addiction, illness, and codependency. Using a creative, interpersonal approach, she helps clients let go of the past to create greater peace and fulfillment in life.

Phyllis’s skills have been shaped by a diverse 30-year career in the fields of education, business, and human development, but most especially from her own experience with life transitions and loss. Feeling stuck at mid-life, she took a leap of faith, quit her corporate job, sold her home, and traveled solo around the world. Upon her return in 1998 she established an executive coaching practice, earned the designation of Master Certified Coach in 2006, and returned to graduate school in 2007 to achieve her M.S. in Rehabilitation Counseling from Georgia State University.

Phyllis has worked in a women’s residential treatment community since 2009, addressing addiction and emotional disorders, domestic violence, and trauma issues. She is a Nationally Certified Counselor, Licensed Associate Professional Counselor and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor.
