About me

When life gets complicated, I am here to help you figure things out. Hello, I’m Carol Thoma-Perry, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in practice since 2004.

My therapy style is caring, listening, and structuring treatment to fit your individual needs.

Therapy is most effective when a client is motivated by desire for understanding, growth and change. Pursuing your goals, guided by a therapist can provide an opportunity for emotional healing and life satisfaction.

My commitment as a therapist is to meet you where you are and guide you to where you want to be by demonstrating understanding, acceptance and unconditional positive regard. When our journey concludes, your journey will move forward with the tools and confidence you need for continued growth and health. Thank you for reaching out.

Carol is helpful, kind, and a great listener. I never expected my sessions with her to be one of the highlights of my week, but they definitely are! She uses problem solving & logic to help me work through my problems which I really find beneficial.

Carol is so kind and understanding (and she has a great sense of humor!) she helped me work through a very difficult period of my life and helped me deal with some issues I have been carrying with me for a long time. I am so grateful for her help and what she has helped me accomplish.

We have only had two sessions so I'm not sure that I really know enough about her yet to fully give a good review. But so far, I really like her style and she is a good listener and has good input/advice

She has been great.

Written on Oct 16, 2020 after therapy with Carol for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and family conflicts

Carol has been very kind and gives me support when I feel I have none. Makes me think outside of my comfort zone to see what I dont want to acknowledge. Also helps me to see what I already see and know I am not the only one that feels helpless and low at times

Written on Sep 30, 2020 after therapy with Carol for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

She is a wonderful counselor and I’m glad I started this journey matched with her.

Written on Sep 09, 2020 after therapy with Carol for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and adhd

I really like how she is patient with me. I’m a terrible speller and horrible with grammar but it is not an issue. She answers me in a timely manner and I really like how I can take time in the evening or morning to respond and I have time to decompress and really think about things.

Work with me!
