My orientation as a holistic psychologist marries the best of humanistic psychology with that of natural medicine. I recognize our physiological and psychological interconnectedness, well documented by psychoneuroimmunology. The modes of healing that I use are primordial, generally relying on supporting the bodies own natural healing responses. I teach lifelong skills which reduce stress and anxiety, build self-esteem and positive coping, and instill confidence, joy, and resilience.

Carolyn has a deep knowledge base in Integrative Medicine and Mental Health. Her background provides her with a deep technical skill base. She combines this with a sensitive, gentle and caring nature that helps people to feel heard and cared for. Carolyn also gravitates towards the spiritual side of human nature and this opens a broad range of expansion and growth for all that connect with her.

Understanding and practicing the clinical skills of person-centered expressive art came naturally to Carolyn. Her strengths are a good sense of humor, creativity, and intuition. In the spring of 2004, she did a research practicum with ADHD children, using a mindbody therapy which incorporated the person centered expressive art therapy, which produced good results.
