EVERYONE HAS A STORY
CARRIE EICHMANN, LICSW, CMPC she, her, hers
Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker
Certified Mental Performance Consultant
Being human (quirks and all) is simultaneously raw and exhilarating- a profound experience that we all share and one that captured my attention from a young age. This curiosity about how people think, feel, and behave infused my experiences as a teammate, leader, family member, friend, student, and colleague long before becoming my career.
During college, like many, I struggled with those "big questions" about my purpose and future. As an avid athlete, it was senior year when I noticed running cleared my mind- becoming my first exposure to mindfulness- and was hooked. 5 months after graduation, I ran the New York City Marathon and all these years and races later, I can still picture the course, hear my music, and taste the pretzel I inhaled at mile 18.
Professionally, I’ve dedicated myself to supporting those addressing a broad range of mental health, identity, and performance concerns. I feel alive when working with college students, young adults, and adults tackling life transitions, personal development, relationship uncertainties, self-esteem and confidence, athletic and professional performance, and injury recovery.
For over a decade I have worked as an individual and group therapist in a variety of settings across the country including partial hospitalization programs, outpatient counseling centers, college counseling centers and athletic departments.
Just as my story inform my perspective, I believe it is crucial to consider all aspects of a person’s identity in order to genuinely connect with each other and achieve the personal growth we all seek. Systems of privilege and oppression impact the way we exist in the world. Therefore, not only do I encourage the exploration of the various intersectionalities for those who seek my support, I am also constantly evolving in my own social-location and how this impacts my role as a therapist.
In my down time, I like searching New England for the perfect chocolate frappe, running marathons, rock climbing with my husband and kids, and as a native New Yorker, cheering for the Mets.
Mookie is my bernedoodle who loves his job of snuggling, nuzzling, and often sleeping at your feet during our sessions. He's currently training to be a certified therapy dog. While most folks get a kick out of Mookie, I understand that dogs aren't for everyone and am happy to leave him at home as best suits your needs.
