I am a therapist with over 30 years of experience helping others achieve improved mental health. I have experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and geriatric clients in a variety of settings. I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice, as well a a Master's of Education degree in Counseling and Guidance from the University of Montevallo, in Montevallo, Alabama. l later completed my Doctor of Education degree at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
I believe in not giving up on clients, and equally important, not allowing clients to give up on themselves. I utilize motivational interviewing to identity and enhance the strength of my client while exploring ways in which those strengths can move my client toward improved health and happiness.
I am very excited about the prospect of working with you and hope to hear from you soon~

I started therapy at a very low point in my life and was absolutely terrified to take that first step. With in the first 5 minutes of my first session with Carol Crowson, 6 months ago I knew I was in good hands. I could not have asked for a more understanding, kind, gentle and compassionate therapist. She's simply amazing

Dr. Crowson is seriously a blessing. I was terrified of the thought of therapy before I signed up for BetterHelp, but she's been so kind and helpful through this entire process. I'm so grateful for her!
