Carol believes that people are experts on themselves. Symptoms are viewed as a necessary and creative response to one’s environment. Carol believes that behaviors are not random and have meaning. She uses a strength based, solution-focused approach to help gain an understanding of behaviors and see behaviors in a family of original context. She also incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy to work with cognitive distortions and cognitive reframing. Carol provides psycho-education about the psycho-physiological effects of trauma.
