I am a personable, dedicated, and genuine Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 combined years of experience as a social worker and life coach. My experience includes working with clients with a vast range of concerns such as: depression and anxiety, relationship and family conflict, stress management, ADHD, parenting problems, career challenges, intimate-partner violence, and emotional, physical, or sexual abuse and trauma. In addition, I have experience working with people who are having to face the difficult decision to place their elderly relative into short and long-term care facilities, people facing homelessness or displacement, and having suicidal ideation.
My belief is that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. In every work environment that I have worked from schools, to governmental agencies, to psychiatric hospital settings, to private practice, I make a conscience effort to show not only compassion and warmth, but also a respect and genuine rapport with my clientele. Throughout the years, I have learned that it is not enough to simply treat people the way that you would want to be treated, but to treat them the way that they want to be treated as well. You deserve to discuss your concerns in a safe environment that is judgment-free.
My therapeutic approach is integrative drawing from Gestalt, Humanistic, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal, and Systems Theory. Of utmost importance to me is to meet you where you are to determine which treatment modality fits best for your specific needs. Whether you are in constant conflict at home with family, having challenges at work, school or home, are having suicidal thoughts, are having relationship or financial problems, feel stuck, need more self-confidence, have anger management issues, intimate partner violence, or trauma, I would like to partner with you to help you meet the goals that you would like to achieve.
I am excited about the opportunity to partner with you to help you achieve a more fulfilling and enriching life. You have already taken the first step in a positive direction by landing on this page. I would be honored for you to allow me to support and empower you along the way. If you are ready, I am listening....let's begin!

Carlithea's style of work is collaborative, supportive, solution-focused, and direct. She makes me feel safe and comfortable in discussing my issues without worrying about feeling judged or misunderstood. She is skilled and empathic!
I’ve only recently started seeing Carlithea but the comfort was there immediately. I have a hard time opening up to people and tend to downplay or belittle my struggles. Carlithea doesn’t let me do that and is extremely supportive and understanding. She doesn’t sugar coat anything but is kind when she delivers a point that I need to hear, which is what I need. I’ve been to therapy before and was hesitant to talk to anyone again, but Carlithea has really changed that for me.
Working with Ms. Farrington was a pleasure. She was kind and caring with our Daughter and helped her to open up to deal with teenage issues and post trauma pains and anxiety. We appreciate all her help.
The best results we have ever had. She is perfect and understanding.
Ms. Farrington has been fantastic throughout the last few months during our sessions, and I absolutely feel as if the discussions have been beneficial. I trust in her experience and ability to drive conversations in a way that explore and address my concerns, and she gives me things to think about in a way that helps me further progress in my personal life.
In my experience with Carla, she has always kept our issues in a neutral space and allowed both of us to be heard. She is very professional and prompt in her messages as well as her video chats we have. She has helped immensely and been something my SO and I look forward to speaking to.
I L O V E Carlithea! She is the sweetest and has such a positive energy even when I talk about stressful things happening in my life. I feel like I can tell her anything and definitely would want to continue with her in the future.
I am new to teen counseling but so far I feel like its helping. Carlithea feels like someone I can really be open with and not feel judged. She is down to earth but also professional. I look forward to more sessions in the future.
Carlithea has been so thoughtful, insightful and helping through my breakup. She has helped me to realize my true worth and that it's okay to go through the emotions I have experienced. She has been great to work with!
Carlithea is friendly, hugely knowledgeable, and so kind. I feel listened to, respected, and helped. Being able to work with her is wonderful.
Carlithea has been wonderfully supportive of me through a difficult time over the past few months. She’s also great at holding me accountable in ways she knows will help me in the long run, which can be hard for me to do for myself. I’m grateful for the guidance she’s given me!
Only working with Carlithea Farrington for a short time but from the beginning of addressing my concerns with her, she has given me a lot of support and confidence. I feel I can be open about my issues and speak about my feelings and thoughts without judgement. I’m new to counseling in general but I feel very comfortable in speaking with her and she gets back to me in as little as 12-24 hours. Her suggestions thus far have been helpful and I look forward to working with her further.
We love her and she actually got through to my husband so he was able to open up about her feelings!
Carlithea has been extremely helpful. Attentive and pays close attention to detail. I do recommend her to anyone.
She truly is a blessing!
I have had a healing experience with my counselor Carlithea, she is compassionate, patient, understanding, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommended her to anyone that is in need of therapy.
Carlithea is great. She listens and supports me and helps me to identify areas of improvements shows me where my strengths are. It has been just a few weeks since I’ve been in therapy with her but I can also see things improving
Amazing, talented, diligent listener and very goal focused. I have tried a few therapists and she is the best.
Carlithea is friendly, she checks in and she is professional.
We have been working together for a few months now and in this time Calithea has really helped me navigate through some tough emotions and big life challenges in present and upcoming future. I would highly recommend her as she is both professional and personable. I can’t be more appreciative of her support.
She’s very well prepared and very helpful.
I have really enjoyed my experience with Carlithea Farrington! She listens to all of the random thoughts in my head and is able to help me see why I think and feel the way I do. She’s extremely supportive and I always feel better after talking to her. She checks on me regularly if she hasn’t heard from me in a while which feels very nice. I wasn’t sure about online counseling but it has actually helped me delve into some deep-rooted issues. I highly recommend!!
She is very helpful with everything we talk about. I would recommend her to anyone that needs the help.
I love working with and talking to Carlithea Farrington. She has provided me with so many tools and thought provoking exercises to keep me grounded and paying attention to my goals. She knew just what to do when I told her my problems and has helped me change my way of thinking and chip away at myself to find that happiness from within. I thank her so much for that.
