Trust is what is vital to a healthy therapeutic relationship and I work very hard to build that with my clients. Seeking counseling is one of the most courageous steps towards living your best life possible and I would like to help you on that journey. I am driven by the desire to help people through their difficult times and emotional issues they are facing. We will work together to develop an individualized path to help you through and feel better!

I have had the opportunity to work with many different populations and have experiences in various emotional issues: relationship issues, depression, anxiety, trauma, PTSD, addictions, grief, self-esteem, compassion fatigue, military issues, attachment issues, suicidal ideations, self-esteem/ self-confident, coping skills, and many other issues.

I have many years experiencing working with families and spent over five years as a Military & Family Life Counselor working with active duty, National Guard, Reservists, and their families.

My counseling style would be described as welcoming, warm and interactive. I believe in treating people with dignity, respect, sensitivity, authenticity and empathy. My approach is holistic and based on evidence based practices. I respect your choice on seeking counseling and I look forward to working with you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Carol-Ann is amazing! She is very kind, attentive, empathetic, and knowledgeable. She provided a very safe place for me to share my struggles and gave me clear, actionable direction moving forward. She is great!

Carol-Ann is a fantastic therapist that helped me identify where the issues in my day-to-day life were stemming from and provided guidance and support to manage and overcome those things. She not only can be easy to speak with, but is also understanding, encouraging, and a delightful person. Thank you!

She was amazing! Got me through an extremely tough time with COVID 19 directly affecting my family. Very down to earth and would highly recommend!

Carol-Ann is a wonderful listener and does a tremendous job of making me feel like I am the only thing on her mind during our sessions. She also provides effective "homework" to help me stay in practice during the week between our sessions. Highly recommend!

Carol-Ann is kind, thoughtful, and straight-forward. She has made my anxiety journey feel less drowning and more approachable. I’m very thankful for the time we have spent working together.

Carol-Ann has been giving me lots of resources and materials to read that have hit the nail on the head and lead to several break throughs I had yet to get to with previous therapists. It is as if she just saw my early life trauma and evaluated where I was out and is mapping the road to a healthier lifestyle by giving me tools I need to succeed and rewire my thought processes. I am just really grateful.
