New therapy practice opens

Dr. Carrie Feuer

Dr. Carrie Feuer has begun a new private practice in Eastsound after almost a year of volunteering her services one day a week at the Orcas Family Health Center.

Feuer is a licensed mental health counselor, who also has a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. She moved to Orcas after practicing in Hawaii for the last 15 years.

Shortly after arriving she offered to volunteer as a therapist at OFHC because she was impressed with their mission of providing services for all in need regardless of insurance or ability to pay. They provided her with a space once a week and she has been working with clients pro bono.

Feuer is now renting space from the clinic and will be able to offer more days and hours for appointments. She works with adults, couples and children.

Feuer’s model of therapy integrates the spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative into the process of treatment. She is also experienced in the practice of cognitive behavioral therapy.

Feuer will see clients regardless of their ability to pay. She is in the process of getting credentialed by several insurance companies, and in the meantime it will be a fee for service practice.
