Carlithea Farrington

(MSW, LCSW, MA)

About Me

I am a personable, dedicated, and genuine Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 combined years of experience as a social worker and life coach. My experience includes working with clients with a vast range of concerns such as: depression and anxiety, relationship and family conflict, stress management, ADHD, parenting problems, career challenges, intimate-partner violence, and emotional, physical, or sexual abuse and trauma. In addition, I have experience working with people who are having to face the difficult decision to place their elderly relative into short and long-term care facilities, people facing homelessness or displacement, and having suicidal ideation.
My belief is that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. In every work environment that I have worked from schools, to governmental agencies, to psychiatric hospital settings, to private practice, I make a conscience effort to show not only compassion and warmth, but also a respect and genuine rapport with my clientele. Throughout the years, I have learned that it is not enough to simply treat people the way that you would want to be treated, but to treat them the way that they want to be treated as well.
My therapeutic approach is integrative drawing from Gestalt, Humanistic, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal, and Systems Theory. Of utmost importance to me is to meet you where you are to determine which treatment modality fits best for your specific needs. Whether you are in constant conflict at home with family, having challenges at work or with a child, just adopted a child or are a foster parent who needs additional support, are having relationship or financial problems that increases your stress levels-making it more difficult to function, I would like to partner with you to help you meet the goals that you would like to achieve.
I am excited about the opportunity to partner with you to help you achieve a more fulfilling and enriching life. You have already taken the first step in a positive direction by landing on this page. I would be honored for you to allow me to support and empower you along the way. If you are ready, I am listening....let's begin!

Carlithea is great. She listens and supports me and helps me to identify areas of improvements shows me where my strengths are. It has been just a few weeks since I’ve been in therapy with her but I can also see things improving

We have been working together for a few months now and in this time Calithea has really helped me navigate through some tough emotions and big life challenges in present and upcoming future. I would highly recommend her as she is both professional and personable. I can’t be more appreciative of her support.

I have really enjoyed my experience with Carlithea Farrington! She listens to all of the random thoughts in my head and is able to help me see why I think and feel the way I do. She’s extremely supportive and I always feel better after talking to her. She checks on me regularly if she hasn’t heard from me in a while which feels very nice. I wasn’t sure about online counseling but it has actually helped me delve into some deep-rooted issues. I highly recommend!!

I love working with and talking to Carlithea Farrington. She has provided me with so many tools and thought provoking exercises to keep me grounded and paying attention to my goals. She knew just what to do when I told her my problems and has helped me change my way of thinking and chip away at myself to find that happiness from within. I thank her so much for that.
