Hi! My name is Carolyn and I absolutely LOVE my role in the Wilmington community as a Social Work clinician! I have lived in Southeastern North Carolina for 23 years, contributing to the academic growth of special needs children in the community followed by improving the mental health of our healthcare workers and others in the community. I currently own and run several businesses across the state of North Carolina. Along with my counseling practice, I run a private homeschool, a vacation rental, and an online writing businesses. I am enrolled in a Doctorate program for Social Work through Barry University in Moiami Shores, and I have had my private practice full time for 10 years and thoroughly enjoy each day in my work! Online therapy has been a great resource for me to reach folks outside of my local community.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
In our first session together you will hear a lot about my style of counseling, as well as have an opportunity to provide me with a full patient history about yourself. We will also set some tangible goals for therapy and how we will work on those goals.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I incorporate solution focused approaches to cognitive modalities with most clientele. When appropriate, DBT skills are taught or Motivational Interviewing can be used to facilitated necessarry change for overall health of an individual.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
My greatest strenghs include my tenacity and motivation for my work. I am very dedicated to all that I take on and my clients will see and feel their value through the efforts and attention I give to each case.
