I am a Doctoral Candidate (APA Accredited) in Clinical, Health, forensic, and Neuropsychology, and have been inducted into the Psi Chi international honor society in psychology, and the Pi Lambda Theta honor society in education.
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.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I show empathy and believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don’t believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is integrative, so it combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, motivational, rational emotive counseling, smart recovery, and positive psychology. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs and will do my best to assist you in achieving desired results.

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 been a wise counselor and non-judgemental support through some serious issues. She is helping me to live a better life, and is kind and encouraging.
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.
We see substantial progress. I am able to express all I need without a filter and the counsel is always in a positive direction. The recommendations are far above what I expected and VERY appreciated. I could not be more pleased with her understanding of our special needs.
Absolutely love her.
I would absolutely recommend her to anyone.
She is AWESOME! She really listens and understands. I would recommend her most highly 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!

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.
