Carrie McCrudden was introduced to ARCS several years ago by long time ARCS enthusiast, Edgar Johansson. After attending several scholar luncheons and other ARCS events she decided “the time was right” to join. Dr. Carrie has worked in the therapy field since 1994, becoming a Licensed Psychologist in 2003. She has a broad background, including 12 years in community mental health, volunteering as the legislative chair for the Colorado Psychological Association, serving as adjunct faculty at the University of Northern Colorado and owning a private practice for the past 18 years.
Dr. Carrie has long been a business minded psychologist, including a year-long training in business management after she started her private practice. She serves as a specialized business coach to therapists in private practice through the nationwide organization, Uncommon Practices, and is a proud member of the 3 to 5 club.
Dr. Carrie splits her time between a private therapy practice specializing in treating anxiety and trauma and consulting for businesses. Her approach emphasizes the belief that the person/organization is not the problem, the problem is the problem. This helps clients identify their challenges as workable issues. Gaining new insight, learning tools and techniques for creating lasting changes and shifting from a problem focus to a solution focus is central to her approach.
