Ivy Mairura, RMHCI
Mental Health Counselor Intern


Ivy Mairura joined Carter Therapy in 2021 and brings a diverse background to the therapy team. Ivy’s counseling experience includes residential/outpatient treatment programs for adults suffering from mental health crises and/or substance abuse, high risk students in high school settings, and assisting clients in healthcare and social service settings to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals . 

Ivy believes that your story, pain, and struggles are unique to you. There is no “one size fits all” approach to therapy. Counseling is a collaborative process where the client and counselor work together to identify issues and establish therapy goals to facilitate personal growth and healing. Establishing goals in therapy can help you increase self-awareness, gain new perspective, decrease harmful behaviors, and increase personal strengths in order to have a more profound life experience. Ivy will spend time with you, understanding what you are experiencing, so that you can make enhancements that will help you enrich your life. She believes that everyone should have a safe, healing place to work through life's challenges. 

Some of the approaches Ivy uses include, but are not limited to, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Approach and Motivational Interviewing. She understands that each client’s experience will be different, therefore treatment is customized to the individual’s needs. Ivy can help you overcome tough areas such as:

Depression, Anxiety, Athletic performance related stress/anxiety, Parenting struggles/challenges, Adolescent/children's concerns, Anger issues, Relationship challenges, Career/vocational concerns, Communication issues, Life adjustment issues, Job related stress, Stress management, Generational Trauma in Black women and Disordered eating.
