About me

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

In working with teens, I believe there are different approaches that may assist them in overcoming the resistance to therapy. It takes courage to share personal life issues with a stranger. I assure you, I will listen with respect and compassion as we navigate through the journey of therapy together in order for you to achieve your goals.

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.

Carolyn is awesome! Very good listener with great suggestions, deeply understands even the hardest things I have to discuss. Compassionate, already an ally on my team and it usually takes longer for me to feel trust. I talk a lot so we plow through quite a bit in a session but I believe she would listen whether I could talk or not.

Work with me!
