I am a Marriage and Family Therapist and Chemical Dependency Counselor licensed in the state of Texas. I have worked with families for over 5 years as a licensed clinician. Families have been my focus due to their complexities and the need for family foundations to be as strong as possible. Everything changes whether we are ready for it or not. I am here to help walk through some of those changes and support you with tough love, solid experience, and clinical knowledge. I also have a special place in my practice and heart for families with an addicted loved one. Addiction affects everyone – especially families.
I spent more than 10 years working with veterans and their families coping with deployment, PTSD, and family disruption throughout military careers. I am also an Army veteran of OEF/OIF. I have been there, done that, and got the t-shirt and the scars. No matter what branch we served, military or civilian first responders we all bleed and hurt in similar ways. Allow me to help you find your way out.
I am very straightforward and plain speaking. I listen intently and hear what isn’t being said. I will hold you accountable, support you, and keep you motivated.
Your courage even looking into getting help is phenomenal. I am so proud of you stretching out to get some support and help. I hope I can have the pleasure of working with you.

She is very kind and so easy to talk to, she made my nerves disappear and is so great :)
Her experiences and her knowledge in this field has been very beneficial to me in my mental health journey, even though our interactions have been short and minimal, I excited to have her as my counselor.
Carolyn has been wonderful to work with so far. She listens to what I have to say and gives great feedback. She has supplied me with coping techniques and strategies that I am able to immediately apply , that work well for me! I feel comfortable talking to her, and feel able to be open and honest. As someone that is wary about therapy due to a past traumatic experience, my comfort level speaks volumes to her professionalism and expertise. Highly recommend.
A great person to vent to. She knows how to tell you things the way that you respond to best.
