Carol works in the manner of Carl Rogers, the founder of person-centered therapy. This means that she engages in the process with you and believes that you have the knowledge somewhere within you, as Virginia Satir believed, to create your own path to health and personal growth.
The therapist can not tell you how to heal your psychic wounds, but rather provides enlightenment and guides you toward your own internal understanding which then leads to healing and maturity.
Coming from an educational background, Carol looks for the readiness time in each client to help them unfold what it is that they need to grieve, heal and change to have a satisfying life.
As knowledge surfaces, Carol uses experiential therapy to join with the client and help them change, solidify and use what they are learning about themselves. Ultimately, learning how you see and relate to the world, and changing faulty patterns resulting from those perceptions, will impact all of your relationships for the better.
If you have engaged in therapy, you know that therapists are as diverse as the rest of the population. Their personality and theoretical orientation will determine how they relate to clients and what they believe is beneficial.
Carol is a therapist who is warm, interested, collegial and present: one who strives to create an environment where it is safe to uncover, disclose, discuss and process painful experiences and memories, as well as work through current difficulties.
Carol has a specialty in art therapy, but uses techniques from many theorists depending on the client’s personality, wishes and situation.
Being person centered, Carol takes her clues from the client believing that they know best what they need from each session.
The goals of therapy will be determined by the client with input, clarification and guidance provided by Carol.
