Carolyn Hartley


About Me

My name is Carolyn and I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Michigan where I have over 15 years experience working in the mental health field. I have experience working with a broad range of clinical and life issues. I have been trained in Family and couples counseling and have experience in helping couples navigate through marriage issues such as extra marital affairs, communication issues and many more situations.

I believe in meeting you, as the client, where you are. This means I begin where you are and tailor the treatment approaches to your specific needs. Counseling, or therapy, is all about YOU!I use cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and solution focused methods. My goal in therapy is to provide you with the coping skills you need that will help you in your life and your specific needs.

As we get to know each other, we will establish some goals together: goals that fit your life and needs. I believe in honesty and putting you first. Having said that, I think you will find that I am very caring and compassionate. I grew up overseas and have experience in working with other cultures and enjoy the richness they provide.

I look forward to meeting you and for the pleasure of working with you! Please feel free to ask me any more questions you might have.

My partner and I have enjoyed working with Carolyn. She is easy to talk to and her advice and thoughts are straightforward and not vague, which we really appreciate. She is able to provide an excellent mix of specific tools to help us, and personal stories and examples to ensure we understand what she is saying.

My girlfriend and I have had a very positive experience with Carolyn as to date! She is very understanding and adapts her methods to our current situations. She is very empathetic and provides constructive and valuable criticism where it is needed. She is fantastic and I give a very high recommendation!!
