I have worked successfully with individuals, couples, groups, and families with a broad range of concerns, including parenting problems, addiction, career challenges, depression, divorce, domestic abuse, and eating disorders. I have also worked with persons coping with illness, grief, loss, family conflict, pre-marital concerns, anxiety, infidelity, OCD, men’s issues, sexual abuse, spirituality, suicidal ideation, PTSD, weight loss, women’s issues, relationships issues, and panic attacks.

Dr. C is extremely professional, warm, and kind. She can help with complex issues including being a female minority in the workplace and professional development.
Dr. Colebrook-Claude has nearly two decades of experience and it shows! She has given me wonderful advice on how to grow my self-esteem, set boundaries, and how to heal from a break-up that left me devastated. She is non-judgemental and really listens to you!
her great ideas, hears what im saying and even what im not(in-between the lines)
great great words of wisdom.
I greatly appreciate that despite my response frequency, Dr. C continues to reach out and send encouraging messages as well as helpful resources in light of my absence from BetterHelp. As a therapist myself, that is greatly appreciated because sometimes I get so busy I don't have time to check in with her. Even if I am not checking in for awhile, I can count on her to still be pursuing me as a client and not "leaving me behind," so to speak. She is knowledgable, kind, and encouraging, and I would recommend her! :)
I've just start but she is good. She gives me lots of homework to do.
Even in our message communication, Dr. Colebrook-Claude has been very helpful, attentive, AND PRACTICAL! I look forward to our first video conference coming this week. I know this counseling relationship will be extremely fruitful.
I thank God I found this online counseling. Dr. Coldbrook-Claude has given me a great set of tools to work with and for the first time in over a year I feel there is hope.
So it started off pretty neutral and we were feeling each other out. Then I decided to go all in and write down what was in my heart. Dr. Colebrook-Claude responded with the best reflection I have ever received. She knew exactly how I felt and what questions to pose. It is challenging, but I am answering questions about myuself that I have always been scared to ask.
Dr. Colebrook-Claude is da bomb. I have always had a difficult time rendering myself to counseling due to trust and feeling like I don't need the help. She listens well, has incredible insight, and most importantly is solution oriented. She doesn't let me spend a ton of time feeling sorry for myself or obsessing, but rather offers helpful tools and work to help me grow and move forward. I highly recommend her to anyone!
Dr. Colebrook-Claude was extremely attentive with take the time to listen to my concerns. She offered valuable insight into future progress, along with guidance, knowledge, support and encouragement. I was thoroughly grateful and appreciative of her non-judgmental approach and willingness to allow me to freely express myself. In addition, I deeply appreciated her spiritual based interaction with me as well.
Dr. Colebrook-Claude is an amazing listener and most importantly she does not pass judgement. She will be honest with you in a gentle way. She cares for your well-being. She provides helpful and healthy ways to guide you in the right path/direction. She lets you take your time, I enjoy and look forward to every session with Dr. Colebrook-Claude.
I had had some good support from counsellors through my life who have helped me survive the harsh reality of life. Albeit, I have faced some of the most difficult times in my life thus far during my time with Dr. Colebrook, she has outshined every other professional counsellor I have worked with. She has engaged me on a level that I have understood and been able to follow through with. When we speak, I have noticed that she challenges me to think deeply. I love this! My emotional health has improved tremendously as a result of our work together. Dr. Colebrook has super powers. Thank you Dr. Colebrook, you are a blessing.
My experience with Dr. Colebrook has been wonderful. She is incredibly helpful and takes the time to understand how I am feeling while helping me think about situations and relationships in a healthy way. I would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Claude has given me the tools necessary to heal my depression and grief. She is very respectable and an awesome listener. I love to receive her perspective on challenging issues.
I will be forever grateful I chose her to navigate my mental challenge. I'm also grateful she is a strong Christian person.
I felt lead to Dr. Colebrook-Claude from day one. I’m so grateful to God for putting her in my life! Our first session I was so happy she opened up with prayer since I am a Christian that was a huge blessing for me! God always knows exactly what you need and when you need it.
Although I have been working with Dr. Colebrook-Claude for just the past month, she has been extraordinarily encouraging and positive. She asks questions that allow me to see the situation for what it is with compassion and humor. She is able to listen and respond with wisdom that I wish I would have had 30 years ago. Over the course of our two live sessions, she has given me very real, practical advice and insight that literally revolutionized the way I see the harmful habits and unhappiness in my life. It was as if she handed me the missing key that unlocked the "whys" of my life. Her written responses to my journal entries or messages as well as her conversation during our live sessions are warm, compassionate and ultimately constructive. I am so looking forward to working with her to shed light on the things in my life that are holding me back from being the person I wish to be.
She is excellent. I am happy I found her. Love that she tailors my sessions to me, my interests, and beliefs.
She has been wonderful. I would strongly recommend her.
So far I feel very comfortable sending her my daily posts in my journal. I enjoyed our first session as well. Thanks so much for this program and Dr. Colebrook-Claude.
Straight to the point with helpful real tools to use in real life. Speaks in the language you are wanting to hear. Very awesome.
Dr. Colebrook-Claude is a great listener and have exceeded my expectations of what I thought therapy could be. I imagine we will have a long relationship and always look forward to speaking with her.
I was worried about being able to fully connect with a therapist in this type of online setting. Dr. Colebrook-Claude is amazing at helping me feel connected to her. Her educational background is incredibly impressive and it serves her well in not only understanding me, but teaching me how to understand myself better as well. I’ve only been working with her a couple of weeks but I’m so thankful for reaching out to BetterHelp and being connected now with Dr. Colebrook-Claude.
I have had numerous counselors.. licensed and at church.. Carnell is above and beyond in every way. Not only does she have excellent credentials and experience, but she also provides wisdom and knowledge that is straight from God. She has changed my life in so many ways. I have overcome trauma, anxiety, depression, and self esteem issues. The inner healing I have experienced has benefited me personally, professionally, relationally, and spiritually. I now am on the road to living life in the fullness of my purposes here in earth.
Dr. Colebrook-Claude is an excellent counselor. She provides thoughtful responses in a timely manner. She also gives feedback on my responses that are helpful in my therapeutic journey.
I've never met a more helpful counselor in 35 years of my life.
Dr. Colebrook-Claude is wise and experienced, she has been helping me work through deep traumas and function in a whole new way! I am so grateful for her guidance and brilliance.
Dr Colebrook-Claude has been helping me for a few days as a new subscriber. She is genuinely sweet, kind and caring. I don’t feel judged at all. I appreciate her so much. I feel like I have my own personal doctor. She is prompt on responses and she has valuable advice. I am truly happy so far with my progress.
She focuses on the things that matter. She has helped me adjust my thinking and see things I was unable to see before. She has been very helpful.
For months I had a BetterHelp account with Dr. Colebrook-Claude but I let it sit there, uncertain how to ask for help. She messaged me regularly anyway with no expectation that I respond. She sent supportive and helpful notes cheering me on. When I finally knew how to engage I was so thankful that Dr. Colebrook-Claude was my match. She let me come to her in my time and asked useful questions to move me forward gently but efficiently.
I'm extremely thankful for Dr. Colebrook-Claude. We are still in the early stages of counseling and working through things, and I already feel stronger. There have been times I feel alone thinking about how nobody checks in on me the way I do them, and then I receive a message from Dr. Colebrook-Claude. Her empathy is more than present and I am more than grateful. Online counseling was a major step for myself in the right direction.
A compassionate and kind therapist with honesty and expertise! Just what I have been needing for a long long time!
Since speaking with Dr. Colebrook-Claude I have felt an amazing sense of peace growing inside myself. She is always prompt in responding to my messages. I always leave our sessions feeling better than I did before. She engages me and makes me work toward bettering myself. There is nothing negative I could say about Dr. Colebrook-Claude.
Dr Colebrook is kind, patient, understanding. She takes valuable time with the individual. She provides excellent exercises and coping skills.
Completely exceeded every expectation I had. She hits the nail on the head and is able to draw connection and get me to see it and feel it. So grateful to have been matched with her.
I've recently started counseling with Dr. Colebrook-Claude and I am very comfortable speaking with her and confident in her expertise. I strongly recommend her counseling.
Carnell is an amazing Counselor!
Carnell shared with me some very concrete and useful things, and I deeply appreciate her help. She provided positive, Christ centered help and I would recommend her to anyone!
What I like about her is that she does not judge me. She listens with an open mind and asks me questions to help me solve my issues.
Dr. Colebrook-Claude was extremely helpful and supportive of everything I had to say. She is very knowledgeable in her field of work and I highly recommend her to anyone!
Carnell is extremely patient and knowledgeable and does not judge me based on where I am coming from. I am not looked down on but I can tell they see me as a person which is hard to get from time to time with counselors.
Carnell Colebrook-Claude served as my counselor. I was skeptical of the quality and efficacy of using an online therapist. Working with her was the best counseling experience I have ever experienced. She was knowledgeable about current conditions and treatments. She listened carefully to my complex history and provided exercises that proved to help tremendously. I would thoroughly reccomend her and this website to anyone.
Carnell has helped me get perspective on different aspects of my life and I am grateful for her kind understanding and guidance. Highly Recommend!
She is a trusted professional advisor and is always suggesting positive ideas for steps forward that provide solutions.
Carnell is absolutely AWESOME! I really enjoy working with her and she is really helping me a lot.
Carnell has been a wonderful part of my much needed therapy. She makes me feel like she listens to my goals, my accomplishments and worries. She has wisdom and kindness that is very appreciated. Carnell is someone I would highly suggest! She is nonjudgmental and very supportive. Thank you Carnell I truly feel like I'm moving in the right direction without question!
I really like my counselor she is very understanding, supportive and she listens. She actually hive very good advises and she is always willing to help no matter how bad the situation is. She makes me feel confident in myself and my relationship. I feel as if I have known get for years. She is doing an excellent job!!!!
I love how much encouragement she had for me. I am working toward new ideas and she helps me to focus life a little better
Very helpful, not judgemental, understand what you are going through!
Carnell is non-judgmental and does not jump to conclusions. She takes the time to understand what the issue is and offers tentative suggestions that help me work towards articulating the problem at deeper levels.
Carnell has changed me into a better person. I owe her so much gratitude. When I first started therapy I was in a dark place. What counselor Carnell and the BetterHelp format helped me do, is seek therapy though my phone and text, in a more open and convenient way.
Absolutely love her.
I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.
She is wonderful. I believe she understands me and I appreciate her wisdom.
Great advice, felt like she was able to get to my main issues without any feelings of fear, or guilt.
She is just AMAZING. Absolutely nothing short of amazing.
Carnell recognized a lot of things I’m dealing with and helped me so much in one session. Looking forward to many more.
Carnell has been a huge answer to prayers. She is able to support me with integrating faith into the process. Also, I love homework and she has been able to give me some great worksheets to help me work through some of the challenges in my healing journey. It has been so helpful to share as things come to mind within the app and know that she will reply and work with me. And if it has been a little bit, she will check in. I am so thankful for that she does check in because I can get lost in what I’m going through and forget to reach out sometimes. I need to remember I can reach out right away, but I have gotten used to having to “save it” for the next appointment. Thankfully, this format doesn’t have to be like that! I don’t have to pause the hard stuff or try to remember everything I wanted to bring up. More than anything, Carnell has given me the support and encouragement I needed right now with tools to move forward on my healing journey. I’m so thankful for her!
I have experienced some things that I refused to talk about. I didn't realize until Carnell pointed out that I had not fully healed and was trapped in a cyclical pattern that was undermining not only my emotional health but my physical well being. I felt that she was patient and she gently guided me to the realization. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She has great knowledge of her field.
She listened well and didn’t judge. Really got me through a rough spot in my marriage! :)
Carnell is very kind and patient.
There is an instant experience of empathy and support.
I have only been working with Carnell for a relatively short time, but even in a couple weeks, just her ability to validate what I am feeling and help me think of things in new ways has helped me approach my day-to-day grind with less anxiety and more clarity.
Ms. Colebrook-Claude has helped when I needed it. Thanks for picking this job!
She is wonderful!
I feel refreshed after speaking with Carnell. She's a great listener and discusser that offers encouraging, realistic, and practical advice. I recommend her highly.
Carnell helped me through one of the worst experiences of my life. I can never thank her enough.
Great counselors and gave good advise!
Carnell is a treasure. I strongly recommend establishing a relationship with this outstanding therapist. Carnell was there for me during the devastation of Hurricane Irma when we had to evacuate. Our sessions, helped me see an end in sight and kept me functioning emotionally. I cannot recommend Carnell enough.
Carnell really helped me quickly identify and talk through my most important issues. She is also very kind and caring.
Carnell is divine. I would recommend her to anyone who's truly ready to put in the work to improve their life. I'm happy like I've never been before and it's all because she showed me how to put myself first.
Very nice. Non-judgemental. Very helpful to talk to her.
