Psychotherapy for Individuals
With more than 30 years of experience, Carol provides a safe, respectful, and collaborative space that allows for the emerging of healing and personal growth.
Carol’s approach to psychotherapy is based on the understanding of the human innate drive toward wholeness and self-actualization, what Carl Jung calls individuation.
She creates a safe space where exploration is invited and facilitated, helping individuals to explore challenges that inhibit creativity and that block the unfolding of the fullness of life. Through verbal exploration, dream exploration, body awareness and a variety of experiential tools, opportunities are provided that allow for fransformation and a deepening freedom of living one’s life.
Being human means that we have access to the richness of full-spectrum living. We have experiences that range from joy on one end of the spectrum to suffering on the other end. It is during challenging times that psychotherapy can provide a safe haven for exploring those trials, learning how to heal emotional, spiritual, and/or physical wounding.
We learn to surrender to our personal struggles and grow through them and beyond, finding a new level of integration – an unfolding process that leads us to becoming more fully who we are meant to be, with a renewed sense of meaning and purpose.

Carol has worked with the chronically mentally ill both in an acute-care hospital and at a mental health center.
Through the Center for Mind-Body Medicine, she was on the faculty team that tended to healing the trauma from the war in Kosovo. Both in the refugee camps in Macedonia, to which many people fled, and later in Kosovo itself when they were free to return, she helped citizens and professionals to heal from their trauma. She also trained professionals who could then carry on the work with the traumatized population. Additional response work through the Center for Mind-Body Medicine was the support for the first responders following 9/11.
