Carolynn believes every person has a unique story that has shaped their life. She is passionate about developing relationships to better understand the backgrounds, experiences, and influential people in the lives of clients.  

Her prior work as a career counselor is what led her to pursue a career in therapy and expand her ability to support people in transition, crisis, and repair. Focusing on understanding family of origin and childhood relationships and how they influence identity is something she enjoys. She brings special training that helps people to lean into their natural abilities, talents, and skills to manage challenging seasons of life. Carolynn has experience working with adolescents, college students, couples, postpartum women, and people in transition.
