Feeling stuck? Overwhelmed? Curious?

In my psychotherapy practice you will find a safe place to ask questions, learn about yourself, and breathe deeply.

My style is steady and accepting, bringing creativity and a gentle sense of humor. Together we work to find your strengths, learn to cope and identify ways your past might be impacting you today.

I hope to guide you to find balance, compassion for yourself and others and a life you find fulfilling. Personal growth is a creative process and I hold the space to allow it to unfold.

  About Carol:

I am a counselor and art therapist with EMDR certification. After a number of years working as a nurse, I followed my internal pull to study art psychotherapy.

As a psychotherapist I have found my home!  I have a master’s degree from Drexel University.  I live, work and play in Philadelphia, the city that I love!

While psychotherapy is my passion, my nursing background impacts my work. I bring an awareness of the mind/body connection and the need for both physical and emotional self-care to promote healing.

What exactly is psychotherapy and why might I try it?  Isaac Holland has a lovely video that describes psychotherapy. Watch the video here:   https://vimeo.com/134193131
