MA, LCMHCS, LMFT,
AAMFT Approved SupervisorHi. I’m Carol and I enjoy helping individuals, couples or families who find themselves struggling in life and relationships. I feel that our working relationship is very important and strive to earn your trust and create a safe place to dive deeper. I love helping people connect the dots from the past to the present and explore their stories using evidence-based models of therapy. I feel strongly that deeper and more holistic approaches to a therapy journey create more fundamental and long-lasting change.Clinical Internal Family Systems (IFS) and Experiential Therapy Training
As a certified Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapist, I am very passionate about teaching this model of therapy to whomever may benefit from this approach – new therapists, counselors new to this approach, marriage and family therapists, pastors or pastoral counselors. This evidence-based model of therapy proves to be transformative on a deep level – getting to and healing the roots of wounds that may impact you or your clients today. Through a group or workshop setting, I love the power of developing the person of the therapist. Group training offers the opportunity to learn these approaches to therapy and look at your own story for personal growth.
I have a special interest in gently helping you explore the impact of the hard experiences you may have had that impact you today. We will look at all aspects of your life that have shaped you, at your pace and help you heal and find peace and freedom in this journey. This can take place in individual or couples therapy.
Or, you may be interested in getting deep healing through more intensive group therapy. No matter the level of trauma, exploring with others in a group may the right setting for you. If you feel like you are alone in your struggles, a group can be a powerful and supportive environment in which to heal.
Addictive behavior can be a block to living the life you want to live – there is no shame in admitting you may struggle in this area. I love to help people explore addictive patterns and the roots of these that may have come (in part) from adverse childhood experiences. In addition, I welcome helping those who have significant others caught in the web of addiction heal from the wounds this disease creates in relationships.
As a Christian, I am uniquely prepared to integrate your faith into our therapeutic process. Knowing that many have been wounded spiritually or have other spiritual perspectives, I whole-heartedly respect your beliefs and worldview. It is my honor to walk with you, respecting your perspective – this is your journey.
