Carolyn’s Education and Training:
I’m a graduate from USF, where I received both my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. I’ve been serving my clients and students for 25 years. Initially, I was a Certified Guidance Counselor for the state of Florida, grades K-12, and served over 18 years as a Guidance Counselor in both the public and private schools in Pinellas County. I was a lead member of the County Crisis Team, where I utilized crisis counseling techniques in dealing with trauma, sudden deaths, and suicides and still serve as an active Crisis Counselor. Currently, I volunteer as a court-appointed Guardian Ad Litem for the 6th Judicial Circuit Court system where I advocate for the best interest of abused, abandoned, and neglected children. I am a member of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America and the American Psychological Association. I have served in various capacities at The Alpha House, and passionately support the Children’s Dream Fund, St. Vincent De Paul, and Hospice. I attend workshops and conferences, read professional journals, and stay up to date with research on the latest approaches to manage anxiety, grief, and trauma.
Identifying the right therapist is life-changing and I’m confident that I can assist you in viewing life’s transitions as an opportunity for growth and personal development. Together, let’s place the right pieces, together.
