Carolyn primarily works with teenage girls struggling with anxiety and depression and women and non-binary folx of all ages with eating disorders, disordered eating, and body image issues. Her goal is to help people gain awareness of their triggers and unhealthy behavioral patterns that are rooted in trauma and give them tools for self-regulation.
Her integrative and holistic approach utilizes art therapy, ecotherapy, somatic therapy, person-centered therapy, solutions based therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy. She hopes her clients leave feeling empowered and comfortable being their authentic selves.
Carolyn graduated from the University of Iowa in 2005 with a degree in studio art. She was a four year letter athlete and captain of the University of Iowa volleyball team. She completed her masters degree in art therapy and mental health counseling in 2021. She is also the new head volleyball coach at Iowa City High School.
