“All humans have an innate capacity to heal.” David Bercely
Originally from Peru, Carolina is fluent in Spanish and English, and earned her Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Ashland Theological Seminary. Carolina is a member of the American Counselors Association (ACA) and the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC).
Carolina enjoys working with individuals and couples impacted by depression, anxiety, PTSD, sexual abuse, adjustment, marital conflict, and grief/loss. She takes an integrative approach that includes evidence-based psychological techniques and/or Biblically-sound interventions depending on the client’s preference and goals. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that needs collaboration, participation and investment from the client and caregiver alike. Nevertheless, in the end, making small changes can bring transformational results.
