Carol is someone who understands people and knows what it's like to cope with life's ups and downs... struggles and plateaus. She has a natural way with people: young and old, male and female. She takes a holistic approach to her work with her clients, and includes theory and techniques from CBT, DBT skills, mindfulness, and trauma-informed therapy. Carol believes in strengths-based counseling, as mental health symptomatology and disturbances of all kinds are survival skills, however maladaptive. Inherently, working together to identify and address paths to personal peace requires commitment to authenticity and personal awareness. Healing is your process, and Carol attempts to be the facilitator of your self-knowledge. .
