Carlithea Farrington

(MSW, LCSW, MA)

About Me

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. My passion is working with individuals and couples on building their relationships and who would like to resolve any conflict in relationships.
My belief is that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect-especially in relationships. 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. Sometimes this is something that couples forget to do in their relationships with those that mean so much to them. This happens all to often, but it is also why so many relationships fail. Don't allow this to be you.
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 your partner, are having challenges at work or with a child that is interfering with your relationship, just adopted a child or are a foster parents who needs additional support, are having work/life balance issues, are having relationship or financial problems that increases your stress levels-making it more difficult to function, 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 start doing what's necessary to enhance your relationship and make better decisions with a concentration on both your and your partner's needs!

Written by F.A. on Sep 27, 2019 after counseling with Carlithea for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

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 have tried many counselors over the years and she has been the very best. I feel she truly understands me.

We love her and she actually got through to my husband so he was able to open up about her feelings!
