Written on Apr 02, 2023 after therapy with Carole for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, and coping with life changes
Carole was an excellent counselor! Calm and reassuring, got to know me and my story. Helped me find my own path to getting better and supported me with practical strategies to cope with panic attacks and sleep issues. Carole was always friendly, calm and professional. She always checked in to see how I was doing and sent me great resources. I got to know her a little bit as a person too and I appreciated that connection. If I ever need help again I’d love to reconnect with Carole. Thank you for being there for me when I needed some professional help.
