About Me

Hello!
Do you struggle with relationships?
Are you frustrated with the way things are going?
Do you feel like you are not being heard?
Are you struggling with your faith and belief in God?
Do you feel overwhelmed?
Do you want your relationships to be better?
Do you struggle with depression, grief, or anxiety and just want to be happy?
Are you having trouble adjusting to a new situation?
Do your in-laws or parents make things difficult for you?

If you work with me, I can help you with these and similar issues.

My name is Carolyn and I am a Christian. I have worked in ministry as a co-pastor and bible teacher for over 10 years. I am a licensed and trained counselor with over 15 years of experience. I am passionate about helping people. I have counseled both men and women who have experienced some of the same issues that you described. To put your mind at ease, I will share with you some basic information about myself. I graduated from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan with a MA Degree in Counseling. I spent many years building a successful non-profit business and a private practice. I have two adult daughters and grandchildren.

I am always sharpening my skills by attending training and conferences. I am committed to making a difference in the lives of the people who cross my path. Often, we carry burdens that can be lightened by simply sharing those feelings with a trained professional.

My counseling approach is client-centered. I use Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing to help you find answers.

I believe that I can help you get through this difficult time. You will find that I am a good listener. I also recognize that we all experience tough times in our lives and need a caring person to talk to. I genuinely care. How can I help you?

Carolyn is an amazing counselor! She is able to listen carefully to get to the root of a challenge or emotion, and supportively generate goals and solutions.

Carolyn is kind, patient, and incredibly skilled in the way she offers advice and support. She has given me applicable tools that I can use in my everyday life, even after I finish my time with her. She truly wants to help you and equip you with things that will help you in the long term, and things you can incorporate into your life yourself. My faith is also a huge part of my life and I loved how she offered biblically-based advice and offered faith-based tools to use.

Carolyn has given me tools to combat with anxiety. My faith has always been very important to me and I am glad I found a counselor who used God to provide me with peace, thank you Carolyn! She is a true gift!

She is very helpful, encouraging and easy to talk to. She has a wonderful way of motivating me and helping me believe in myself again. She cares and it really shows. I have been in counseling off and on most of my life and I feel she has been the most helpful out of all those I have seen. So glad I tried BetterHelp. Love the online sessions.

I have found Carolyn to be extremely helpful throughout counseling. She had provided me with tools to help me with my issues, and I have been able to share my problems expressively and openly because she is a great listener. I'm feeling more confident in handling my issues with the techniques I've learned during counseling.
