I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in the DC/Maryland/Virginia metro area with over 15 years’ experience working as a therapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of behavioral and mental health concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems and career challenges.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity and compassion and I don’t believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach to therapy is client centered, solution focused, and strengths based. Our sessions are your safe space for unpacking your thoughts and feelings, identifying life challenges, and learning new ways to manage them that will allow you to feel better and set you back on the road to achieving your life goals. I also help clients identify and practice daily, effective self-care activities on their journey towards wellness.
I utilize and combine various therapeutic models, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing and Mindfulness Therapy in helping clients successfully reach their therapeutic goals. I will tailor your treatment plan and sessions to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life. The fact that you are here means you are ready to take those first steps towards change. I would be honored to support and empower you to take your next steps.
I look forward to working with you!

Thank you so much, this has and continues to be a great positive experience for me. Carole is supportive and gives me incredible amounts of motivation, support and effort to helping me break any negative patterns I may have and focus on the positives. Her view is always positive and this helps me look ahead, no matter what I'm going through. I've already been proudly mentioning my experience with her to all my friends and colleagues, have recommended the app greatly for connecting me to such a wonderful person and introducing me to a new perspective and experience on therapy. I would always like to say thank you... and will continue to do my best to try and make the most out of my therapy and eventually changing my life..

She is great! She is kind and compassionate, trustworthy, and I feel like I connect with her so well. She listens and gives me tips and homework to work on between our sessions. I like that she is willing to hear me out and work with me.
