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.
Additional areas of focus: LGBT, Parenting issues, Anger management, Coping with life changes, ADHD, Blended Family Issues, Communication Problems, Control Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy

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.
