Are you or a loved one experiencing debilitating symptoms associated with anxiety or depression that just don’t seem to go away? Is your child’s functioning at home, school or within the community being disrupted by problems stemming from divorce, addiction, minor trauma, grief, or loss? Does your child struggle with constant worry or anxiety, sadness or irritability, persistent disobedience, or a decline in normal activities? Caroline fully believes that early identification and treatment can help individuals learn how to take back control of their life and environment in order to reach their full potential.
By utilizing play therapy techniques and other therapeutic interventions, Caroline works primarily with children, adolescents and young adults struggling with maladaptive thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. She employs genuineness, acceptance, and empathy with her clients within a safe, non-judgmental space and helps them to recognize their behaviors, communicate their feelings, address unresolved trauma, and explore repressed thoughts and emotions. In doing so, her clients are empowered to find hope, initiate change, and begin the healing process.
As a Texas native, Caroline grew up in both the Dallas and Austin areas. She attended Baylor University, where she received a bachelor’s degree in Family and Consumer Sciences and majored in Child and Family Studies. She then went on to pursue a master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Amberton University. Now as a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate, she is working towards becoming a Registered Play Therapist, where she will be able to utilize the power of play to help her young clients learn, discover and process information in a way that is natural and developmentally appropriate for them. Additionally, when not working with her clients, Caroline enjoys volunteering her time with a local non-profit that advocates for the best interests of neglected and abused children.
Caroline’s personal experiences have instilled within her a genuine passion for serving others and the community. She is looking forward to helping you or your child smile again. Call to schedule an appointment with her today.
