Carynne Williams


About Me

Carynne Williams earned a Master of Social Work degree in 2010 from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She also has a Master of Public Administration degree from North Carolina Central University and a Certificate in Nonprofit Management from Duke University. Over the course of her career, she has provided psychotherapy in a wide range of clinical settings including practice in federal and state agencies. Most recently, she has worked for the Department of Justice as a Clinical Social Worker, providing treatment to dozens of patients over the course of the past several years. Carynne has a passion for helping others and has been able to do so with clients ranging from ages four to 80 years old. She has a distinct passion and proven talent in working with marriages and families, and does not believe in a one size fits all approach to treatment. Instead, she prefers a pragmatic approach that includes psychodynamic treatment, CBT, DBT skills, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-focused, and psychoeducation. Belief in addressing the needs of the whole person- emotionally, physically, spiritually, and socially is at the core of Carynne’s interactions with her clients. Her own faith and spiritual beliefs fuel her passion for people- their restoration and healing.

Written by J.A. on May 05, 2020 after counseling with Carynne for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, bipolar disorder, and depression

Carynne is one of the most compassionate counselors I've had--ever. She allows me the space to feel safe and heard, while also listening intently and uncovering the hard truths underneath everything I'm saying. I didn't think I could connect this well with a counselor online, and I was skeptical when first joining Betterhelp. Through the last 4 months, Carynne has helped me with sorting through childhood traumas, listening to my work dilemmas, helping me evaluate complicated relationships, and laughing with me in all of my silly life situations. She truly is a treasure.

Carynne is a really compassionate and is very good at helping me think through my feelings and find ways to help me maintain a positive outlook and stability, even when faced with a lot of trying situations. She also conveys a sense of calm that I really appreciate, and she provides me with a road map to addressing issues that feels achievable. I am really grateful to have her support.
