About me

In my 21 years of private practice and 10 years as a Program Director of the Professionals’ Health Program I have gained extensive experience with a diverse population and diverse issues. I believe providing a nonjudgemental, empathetic, safe and accepting environment is an essential aspect of therapy.Utilizing a varied approach of therapies (I.e. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Rational Emotive Therapy Emotionally Focused Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy) help with individualizing the treatment plan. Although a seasoned therapist, I believe therapists can always learn more and have a willingness to research avenues to find the best resources for my clients.

If you do not think the therapist/client relationship is a fit, it is my job to assist you in locating a therapist that is more suitable for you.

Entering therapy takes courage as you share your life issues with a stranger. I assure you, I will listen with respect and compassion as we navigate through the journey of therapy in order for you to achieve your goals.

Carolyn has been so supportive she has pushed me to grow and rework my thinking to be more positive but never makes me uncomfortable and always makes me feel understood and cared for!

Carolyn was wonderfully accepting and it was gratifying to have her listen to my concerns, and let me know it was ok to have been affected by my past the way that I have.

Carolyn had a substantial positive impact on my life in just a few months of therapy.

She is incredibly kind, caring, and talented. She helped me process things that were holding me back and take the right steps to move forward.

Anyone, especially if they suffer from ADHD and/or depression, would likely mightily benefit from working with Carolyn.
