I feel it is important to observe all aspects of who we are to achieve balance and emotional awareness. As a counselor, I feel I am empathetic, positive and supportive. I believe in the power of positive intentions, fun and living life to the fullest!
It is important to assist clients become self aware, communicative and confident in who they are so they can be the best version of themself.

Carolyn has been an absolute joy to talk to every week, and has a friendly demeanor that makes you feel like you’re just FaceTiming a friend. She has great questions that help dig deeper on how you think, process, and act. I’ll definitely want to work with her again when I sign back up in the future. I looked forward to our sessions, and I’m going to miss them.

This was my first time using Better Help and I had been very reluctant to see what kind of Councelor I would get matched too. Carolyn was a perfect match for me right from the beginning! She is a greater listener and could understand exactly what my issues were. We focused on those issues which included confidence and relationships I am in a much better place now. I also appreciated her responses to my journals and checking in on me through them. I highly recommend Carolyn.
