Carrie Wicks is an expressive arts therapist. She received her bachelor's degree in sociology and women’s studies from Kent State University, completed Northeastern University’s graduate program in college student development and counseling, and earned a master’s degree in expressive arts therapy from Lesley University.
Carrie’s career began in higher education at the University of Vermont and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she supported college students through counseling, engaging student communities in reparative dialogue circles, responding to campus crises, and facilitating student courses on the role and impact of power and oppression. She has also worked as a clinician with the Massachusetts Department of Corrections, providing individual and group therapy to inmates. Carrie is passionate about serving underrepresented communities and has worked closely with those who identify as LGBTQ+.
Carrie's approach to therapy is relational and integrative, combining advocacy and education, with a trauma informed lens. She is a strong believer in the power of narrative; she is passionate about helping others find meaning from their experience and uncovering their resilience. She is motivated by empowering those she works with to get closer to their authenticity and connect to the parts of themselves that ignite compassion, curiosity, and love. Carrie strives to cultivate trust and provide a presence that aids in the dismantling of shame for everyone she serves.
