About Me

My name is Carolina Dudley and I am a Licensed Master Social Worker in the State of Michigan. I've worked in my field for almost 13 years in various settings (court ordered juvenile placement, sobriety court, Hospital inpatient and outpatient, hospice care and community) and with various populations and ages.
My therapeutic counseling style is compassionate and encouraging. I encourage openness and trust. Deciding to participate in therapy can be feel scary to most people as it is difficult to share very intimate details of our lives. I want to be the first one to commend you for deciding to take that chance and to allow me to embark in this path with you.

Even as crazy as life has quickly turned, she still makes a heartfelt effort to reach me and I need that

Carolina Dudley is personable. She is patient with me as I learn and grow through life’s challenges. Her expert advice during and out of session and responses to journal entries are helpful & encouraging. I highly recommend her as a counselor with whatever someone may be facing. She cares about her clients and their growth through what they’re facing—even if it takes time to get resolved.

Carolina has been truly fantastic. She’s always so calm and kind and easy to talk to! She’s understanding and truly listens to my many ups and downs. She has positive suggestions, affirmations, and kind ways of correcting and helping me see areas of improvement. Overall, she has so positively helped my mental health and anxiety. I can’t recommend her enough!!

Carolina is attentive, understanding, and compassionate. Our phone sessions have helped me get through a time of grief and pain. She’s a great listener and helps however she can with whatever issue presents itself.

Written by C.A. on Apr 20, 2021 after therapy with Carolina for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, anger management, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Carolina has helped me more than I can express in words. Being a professional myself my biggest fear was having someone who would try so many textbook responses to me and I wouldn’t feel sincerity in out conversations. I feel like an equal. I know our goal (as mental health professionals) is to just provide resources and a ground work to help our clients. I feel heard, I feel I can put my thoughts in the correct patterns and I feel supported. I need that the most.

Written by B.E. on Dec 01, 2020 after therapy with Carolina for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Carolina is a patient listener. She doesn't just jump in with her suggestions or solutions, she waits for me to talk it through and actively listens to me. I also appreciate her kind demeanor and Christian perspective. I would highly recommend her to someone who wants to have a judgment-free, healing atmosphere. Thank you, Carolina, I've gained some life skills because of you!
