Carrie Sensenich, MSS, LCSW – My Background:
Currently my practice is based in Suburban Philadelphia, PA. While I grew up with a loving family in a middle class neighborhood, I also experienced traumas sprinkled throughout my childhood. As a result, I have struggled with anxiety and depression at times throughout my life. Through therapy and a quest towards healing and discovery, I have been able to radically shift my relationship with myself to one that is loving and accepting. I have built a vast toolbox of various skills to utilize as needed in addition to preventative self-care techniques. A strength and gift that has grown throughout my journey is my ability to understand and empathize with the struggles of others.
In 2003 I became aware that I no longer found the administrative work that I fell into meaningful and chose to change careers. I became a rape crisis counselor and a juvenile court victim advocate. After two years, I knew that this was my life’s purpose and returned to school. I earned my Master’s degree at Bryn Mawr School of Social Work and Social Research in 2008. During that time, I learned how to facilitate various group therapies along with individual and couples therapy. I have also graduated from a three year post graduate program at the Pennsylvania Gestalt Center in 2017 and am a licensed gestalt therapist.
I have been in private practice since 2010 where I continue to find it an honor and privilege to be able to partner with people on their unique journeys toward finding peace and achieving their personal goals.
My practice is informed by the belief that we all have our own “inner healer” and I help individuals find this voice of truth inside themselves. Learning to trust this voice empowers one to make choices that are right and true for them. I work from a holistic, mindfulness-based, and experiential approach that bends to meet each person’s unique needs. Together we will work towards healing and uncovering the roots of your struggles, exploring past wounds, and restoring harmony and balance in your life.
