Hi! My name is Carole. I am licensed in Texas and Kansas and see patients via telehealth. If you are struggling, I would like to help you find a solution. I work with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, and those who have experienced trauma and sexual assault. I have my Masters in Social Work from the University of Texas at Arlington, and hold certifications as a Trauma Professional, Grief Therapist and as a Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider. I have training in EMDR as well as Cognitive Processing Therapy. I have worked in the mental health field for over 6 years.
I enjoy working with clients who are ready to make a positive change in their lives. I have experience working with individuals and families with a variety of mental health needs. I have a passion for working with couples and dedicate part of my practice specifically to couples work. Together, we will address issues regarding healthy communication, conflict resolution, finances, intimacy, and parenting.
As a counselor, I am dedicated in supporting my clients on their personal recovery journey by helping them make meaning of sorrow and hardship, uncovering their gifts and talents, and develop goals so they can move forward toward a brighter future and hope. I believe that as long as there is breath there is hope!
Every person is important. Every person deserves to be respected. Every person deserves to be heard. I want my clients to develop a strong sense of identity and confidence in their own abilities. I have gained an appreciation for people and their needs regardless of their backgrounds due to having years of experience working in various settings such as corporate America for a Fortune 100 company as well as an established mental health organization. Along with this, I have extensive experience traveling internationally and was raised in a family of several mental health professionals.
Sometimes, life happens, and we experience heartaches, anxieties, broken promises, betrayals, conflicts, disillusionment or we feel alone and abandoned. At such times, we need someone we can trust with our deepest fears and concerns; someone to listen to us with respect, someone to lean on for clarity, guidance, and support in a way that strengthens us and improve our sense of purpose. It is scary enough reaching out to a counselor, but even more frightening is the challenge of finding the right counselor to trust with your concerns.
Reclaim the joy back in your life! Whether anxiety has been limiting you from living a fuller life, or whether depression has been isolating you from others. Or, maybe you have an internal yearning to grow and to learn about yourself, your life, and your world. Maybe you want to improve your performance in academics, work, relationship, or modify a specific behavior. Maybe secretly, you want to feel more confident ... therapy can be a powerful tool. Therapy can act as a catalyst in facilitating changes from an inner core. As a clinical psychologist, I provide individual therapy to women and men -- to help them achieve their goals.
As a professional counselor, I believe in the power of each individual to overcome barriers that prevent their life pathway from taking a more positive direction. I am invested in creating a calm and safe haven where growth and improvement can occur. Using a person-centered approach requires understanding the perspective patients have about issues in their lives to foster open, honest communication within a therapeutic relationship. When people feel comfortable expressing their emotions, an effective counselor is able to gain knowledge of how that person views their problems.
I have practiced for more than 25 years. I treat individuals and families, marriages, and children, as well as chronic pain patients. I teach skills, and prepare individualized treatment plans which integrate your goals and the skills you can practice to achieve your goals. I also do assessments, for ADHD, learning differences, and personality testing. I use cognitive rational therapy to assist you in working toward your goals as efficiently as you choose.
I specialize in working with clients who are struggling with relationship problems. Perhaps you are stuck in a relationship that is abusive, or maybe you are just unhappy because the marriage or relationship is no longer meeting your needs. My twenty years of experience will help you get unstuck and provide you with the tools you need to create a positive difference. Give me a call and let's get to work to make things better.
Despite the vast amounts of challenges that life may throw our way, I truly believe that mental flexibility and perseverance may be cultivated by anyone who would seek it. It allows one to bend in the winds of change without breaking, while adjusting and evaluating new wisdoms and perspectives that may be applied to one's life situations. The mind of an individual can be as flexible as one's ability to imagine it to be, when given the support and permission to do so through my integrative and pragmatic approach to therapy.
Marriage & Family Therapist, PhD, LPC-S, LMFT-S, NCC
I consult with individuals, couples, families, and businesses. This includes problems related to relationships, divorce, children, anxiety, depression, aging parents, or ongoing conflicts in business. I also work with adolescents in wilderness environments for brief periods of time.
You are capable of healing. My goal is to holistically identify how a person's trauma and life events have impacted who they are today. My ideal client is ready to start identifying the patterns in their life that are interfering with getting what they want. I primarily work with Adults, Adolescents, Young Adults, and their parents and families. I work with a wide range of trauma, anxiety, and depression, however, I see these issues as how a person survives, adapts, and responds to their circumstance.

Specifically, Cole Associates and Counselors of Texas is dedicated to providing quality professional care by specializing in prevention, treatment and diagnosis of emotional, behavioral, and mental health issues.

My clients describe me as warm, but honest. I will help you find sensitive solutions to life's toughest problems.
Currently not accepting patients until September 1, 2022. Life happens and change happens, whether we want it to or not, and sometimes we need some support and guidance to weather these changes. I act as a professional guide through those rough times. Through therapy, change can become an exciting, growth provoking process that creates stronger relationships. My motto has always been "Many roads lead to recovery". It is of utmost importance that all clients be educated, empowered, and make informed choices about the next step in their lives.
Counseling is recommended for those that may be currently experiencing some type of unwanted or unmanageable emotional or "thinking" difficulty that requires the assistance of a trained mental health professional. Seeking counseling should never carry a negative stigma or feelings of shame. Counseling is a therapeutic process for individuals that may have diagnosed or undiagnosed mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, or difficulty in building and maintaining heathy relationships.
Coaching is recommended for those that are looking for less intensive guidance in assisting them to enhance their own personal performance.
Connecting with the people in our lives is what makes us human. It’s what makes us grow, understand, shift perspective, and be more kind. But sometimes it’s hard and we need a little help. I hope to be the person that can come into you or your families life and guide you through connecting again with trust, patience, and love.
Life is a journey. Sometimes we encounter things that are out of our control and may feel as if no one else understands. I trust in the human ability to grow, even when faced with obstacles. During times of personal questioning or struggle, I rely on the counseling process to elicit the best forms of self-reflexivity in order to prosper. I believe answers to our problems reside within us. Feelings that result from experiences in life are unique to each person, and they each deserve a partner to work through their difficulties. I have strived to create a warm and supportive environment that will foster your growth.
