About me

Hello. So glad you are here and reading my profile. Taking the first step in seeking therapy can be very scary. Most people avoid this decision and convince themselves that they can get by on their own. But you have taken the fearless choice. You want your life to be vastly better, not just OK and not just average. You have the courage to make some changes in your life that may be initially scary, but will result in great rewards in the quality of your life.

We have gone through collectively some very scary times in the past year. Depression, anxiety, stress, and fear have become the norm. We are all feeling as if the world has been turned upside down and wonder if we can cope with the future.

The answer is, you can cope with the future. Not only can you cope, but you can thrive and achieve and believe in yourself and your own resilience. I can teach you how. Now you might be asking, how is Carol and her therapy different than all the other therapists here. The answer is, I not only use not only the latest and most evidence based talk therapy methods, but I combine these methods with the cutting edge techniques in clinical hypnosis. This combination of tools has done wonders for my clients, who have issues and problems just like you.

Now on to my formal credentials. I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist with the National Board of Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed by the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Texas.

My college education was at the University of South Carolina, with a Master of Social Work degree, majoring in Clinical Social Work. I have over 42 years of experience in counseling with people for a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, stress, grief, and relationship issues.

Thank you so much for reading my profile. Would love to meet you and work with you, and help you on your path to your wonderful future.

Carol felt like an old friend I could immediately open up to her judgment free. She immediately made me feel comfortable. This is absolutely mental health done right.
