Dr. Carolyn Greenleaf

LCSW

About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Texas. I've worked as psychotherapist and crisis interventionist in the Dallas Metro area since 1979. I work with clients presenting with a broad range of issues, including depression, anxiety, childhood abuse, marital and family problems, trauma and stress disorders, post-trautic adjustment disorders, and bereavement.

My counseling style is interactive and straight forward. Person-centered and cognitive behavioral theories of psychotherapy are my primary approaches to treatment. Person-centered therapy is used to build and maintain a healthy therapeutic relationship and cognitiv behavioral therapy is used to explore and expose destructive self-defeating thinking and coping behaviors. I also believe humor is the "spoonful of sugar" that helps the medicine go down.

Clients tell me I am a kind person. I appreciate that because I genuinely care about others and want to help them when I can.

Dr Greenleaf is professional, personable, kind and understanding. She’s helping get to the root cause, not just addressing symptoms. She’s a good listener but shares enough to develop a trust and bond as well.

Very wise, humorous, a lovely life mentor

Written on Jul 19, 2022 after therapy with Carolyn for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

Dr. Greenleaf has been extremely helpful throughout this past year in counseling. She’s helped me recognize and work through some serious traumas that happened when I was a young girl and recognize how they have effected me as an adult. I have grown in my emotional intelligence, understanding of why I act certain ways, and how to no longer associate with a younger version of myself but grow into the adult I am today. I would highly recommend her to friends seeking counseling that are willing to take a look in the mirror and work on themselves.

She’s been helpful in dealing with what I came to her for

Dr. Greenleaf has the unique ability to remain professional while simultaneously being warm and personable. Several of my friends recommended Better Help and it took me three different therapist matches to find Dr. Greenleaf. I’m so glad I persisted. Though I haven’t worked with her long, I can already tell that she’s going to play an integral part in my healing journey. I look forward to my video appointments with her and appreciate her reaching out when life gets busy and I have gone longer periods of time without scheduling appointments.
