About Me

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 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 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.
