Hello and Welcome!
My name is Carol and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Arkansas since 2010. My experience ranges from individual and family therapy in a clinical setting to working with children and adolescents as a school- based therapist. I have helped adults, children and families with issues such as anxiety, depression, communication, family/ relationship conflicts, parenting, self -esteem, self-acceptance, and life goals.
My approach is person centered, integrative and solution-focused tailored to your specific needs. Honesty, communication and collaboration are essential to creating a positive trusting relationship and developing the right treatment plan to identify and accomplish your short- and long-term goals. I believe we all benefit from having a caring person to listen and encourage us during difficult times. Asking for help is an integral part of self-care. Accepting help is a sign of strength and determination to make positive changes in our lives now and for our future.

Carol is an amazing therapist, she shows so much concern, strength and love.
Carol has been amazing! I wouldn’t have made it where I am without her expertise.
I have been counseling with Carol for a while now and cant say enough good things about her. She helped me thrive through a painful and nasty divorce and has been continually checking in on me whenever I stop reaching out myself. She is wonderful at what she does. Will continue with her for as long as I can.
I talk to Carol about once a week and she never makes me feel unheard. She always is pushing me to be more positive and always listens to what I have to say. I'm in a hard place and sometimes I think I'm alone, but I know I'm not because Carol makes sure to message me and make sure I'm ok.
Carol is very communicative, and consistent. I appreciate that she makes me feel heard and also offers tools and exercises to help in areas that I voice struggles in. She is easy to talk to and has an enjoyable personality, which can make hard conversations a bit more bearable.
She’s absolutely the best!
Carol is very responsive not only in chatting but in what tools she can get you in order to help. She does not judge and allows you to talk through your problems in a safe and welcoming space.
Carol does a great job of offering different suggestions and ways to reach me. She always checks in with me too and I appreciate that a lot.
Carol is incredibly helpful and kind! I felt immediately encouraged right at my first session and would recommend her to anyone.
Carol is such an excellent counselor. In our first session she was able to identify what I really needed to work on (among all the numerous issues and worries). Her insightful advice and the material and worksheets she provided me have helped so much. Really grateful I was paired up with her.
Carol is a good listener who is empathetic and helpful. I'm glad we worked together to help me cope with all the frustrations in my life. I highly recommend her.
She’s amazing. I love that she listens and checks up on me to see how I am doing. And she is very encouraging . I highly recommend her.
She has been amazing so far! Very understanding and helpful!
