LPC #10023 (Expires: 2021-06-30)
We are in our third week of counseling with Carolyn and could not be happier to go through this process with her. She brings a neutral perspective that is thought provoking and encouraging. Her sense of humor lightens up every session and we never walk away feeling heavier. Her expertise makes this easier than any previous counseling has as a married couple.
Carolyn excels as a therapist. She knows several techniques and recognizes which to apply when. I. Addition she is also a Godly woman and, if desired by you, will bring a spiritual element to her therapy. For me this is very important as the soul requires just as much care as the body and mind. She also does this with no judgement but with kindness and empathy.
So far sessions with Carolyn have been very interesting, opening up ways of thinking that I never would have adapted on my own and giving myself and partner guidance on how to better communicate.
