About Me

Hello. So glad you are here and reading my profile. Taking the first step in seeking therapy can be very scary. Most people avoid this decision and convince themselves that they can get by on their own. But you have taken the fearless choice. You want your life to be vastly better, not just OK and not just average. You have the courage to make some changes in your life that may be initially scary, but will result in great rewards in the quality of your life.

We have gone through collectively some very scary times in the past few years. Depression, anxiety, stress, and fear have become the norm. We are all feeling as if the world has been turned upside down and wonder if we can cope with the future.

The answer is, you can cope with the future. Not only can you cope, but you can thrive and achieve and believe in yourself and your own resilience. I can teach you how. Now you might be asking, how is Carol and her therapy different than all the other therapists here. The answer is, I not only use not only the latest and most evidence based talk therapy methods, but I combine these methods with the cutting edge techniques in clinical hypnosis. This combination of tools has done wonders for my clients, who have issues and problems just like you.

Now on to my formal credentials. I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist with the National Board of Certified Clinical Hypnotherapists and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed by the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Texas.

My college education was at the University of South Carolina, with a Master of Social Work degree, majoring in Clinical Social Work. I have over 42 years of experience in counseling with people for a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, stress, grief, and relationship issues.

Thank you so much for reading my profile. Would love to meet you and work with you, and help you on your path to your wonderful future.

"When I first began working with Carol, we had a hard time with schedules coinciding and I wasn't sure if this was going to be a good fit. I had already postponed signing up by several months- per usual, waiting until I was in quite a desperate place unfortunately. But I continued to meet with Carol. Her voice is soothing and kind. She had a sense of humor and she very authentic in nature. I appreciated this and it helped establish trust. I continued to struggle with some emotional trauma and relationship challenges, but it was nice talking through this with someone.

Carol's main form of therapy is through hypnosis -I had never gone through hypnosis nor did I understand what it would help with. After we discussed that being in trance is not hokey like the movies portray it, she explained that although talk therapy is good and necessary as we become aware, our subconscious still needs to work through many things- that is where most of our trauma lie, deep within the subconscious.
I'll wrap this up saying that over the last 6 weeks we have worked on digging into the subconscious and those areas I find myself struggling with at present by using hypnosis. It is so therapeutic and relaxing in the moment- but the effects last. I feel relaxed after a session, more at ease & I sleep better. I now believe it is a necessary tool as part of my healing journey-
Carol, thank you for introducing me to this and for walking me through the reality of what it really is and what benefits it can provide. You are awesome!

"I looked this up a while ago & walked away. I still need the help talking with someone about some hard stuff. The therapist assigned to me is still in the system & I’m moving forward this time. My well-being is worth it."
