I developed Living Years Counseling as a private practice to address the mental and emotional health needs of older adults and adult children of aging parents. The symptoms and behaviors vary widely, but are often consistent with anxiety, depression, grief or difficulty adjusting to changes of aging.

Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD (trauma), grief , life changes, ADHD, anger, relationship issues, addiction, or parenting.
Life is hard, and none of us escape unscathed. We are all bruised and broken in some way. If we are fortunate, we have friends and family who walk beside us through the difficult times. Even so, we sometimes feel alone and at a loss as to how to move forward. We need further support from a trained professional who will walk beside us; offering support, empathy, insight, and encouragement. This is therapy. Counseling is one the great passions of my life. I have been counseling for almost 20 years and have wide and varied experience. I counsel all ages and use a variety of treatment methods tailored to each individual I see.

I feel especially capable to work with trauma, depression, grief and loss , anxiety, and men's issues.
Currently Accepting New Clients. It takes tremendous courage to turn the spotlight inwards and work on ourselves. I consider it a genuine privilege to walk alongside people as we navigate their struggles and successes. It is why I have such deep respect for the people who walk through my office door. If you are that person, know this: ALL of you is welcome here. Meaningful relationships are central to our well-being, just as much as water or air; however, they often are the source of intense pain. Our therapeutic work will be built on a bedrock of trust, and focus on developing the relationships with yourself and others you deserve.

Searching for help is a courageous first step to change. You may be feeling anxious or depressed. Are you looking for support in changing addictive behaviors from a non-judgmental approach? Perhaps you have experienced traumatic events that have left you feeling "stuck." Or maybe you have relationship issues and aren't sure where to go from here. Many of my clients have experienced grief and loss and simply need support working through the stages of grief . I have also served children and families. Whatever your needs, there IS hope.

Hello! My name is Carol. I enjoy meeting new people, and I would love to meet you. I have been working with people to improve their lives for over 20 years. Many people I meet are struggling with feeling anxious, sad, and feeling overwhelmed. Often there are struggles with relationships, not feeling loved, not knowing how to connect, feeling lonely. Grief over many small losses or just one big one, it can be hard to adjust. These are common issues that I can help you work through. Making better decisions, becoming happier and more confident, and better understanding yourself are often achieved along the way.

I enjoy helping my clients process changes and reconnect to their daily lives, whether that be in response to huge life events such as divorce or death , or seemingly inexplicable feelings of depression and anxiety.
We all experience bumps and bruises throughout our lives. When those bumps and bruises become too much to handle it can be very difficult to reach out for comfort and help, not knowing where to turn. It can make you feel defeated, helpless, and isolated. You don't deserve to walk through life just surviving day-to-day. I believe in meeting my clients where they are at in life, wherever that may be, and helping them to learn how heal and grow so they no longer are just surviving, but able to fully live their lives. I work from an open-minded, non-judgmental framework and believe in a true therapeutic partnership with my clients.

I believe that childhood interactions play a huge part in the development of psychological pain, wounds, and hurts. I am sensitive to the process of therapy and work hard to make it a safe and trusting space for you and myself to work together. The here and now interactions in the room are important and I intentionally use them to foster the healing process. Your strengths and goals are important to the way I work because my aim is to free up the energy that has been suppressed by pain so that you can focus on the things that are important to you.

Grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.

If you're looking for an Ames grief therapist, these professionals provide grief therapy and counseling in Ames.
