About

Hi, I’m Caroline and I help busy people live better lives.

 

You probably found yourself on my website because something (or everything) isn’t working out for you.

 If you’re a busy person, it can be difficult to gain perspective when you feel inundated with projects, obligations, and other constant daily stressors. Even if you have an idea of how life could be better, it’s easy to feel confused or unequipped when it comes to making that vision a reality.

 Because busy people don’t have time to waste, I get straight to business. I help each of my clients answer 3 simple questions:

 What do I need?

What do I really want?

How am I going to get it?

 The answers to these questions look different for each person but the results my clients experience are consistent. They have clarity about who they are and what they’re working towards. They feel prepared to manage the craziness that life throws at them. They feel more productive, passionate, and confident than ever before. They’re not just “getting by” anymore.

They’re living a meaningful, satisfying life.

 I believe that anybody, including the chronically busy, can get to that place. If you need some insight and guidance to help you get there, you don’t have to figure it out alone. Schedule a free consultation with me for therapy or coaching services. Because my practice was designed with a busy person in mind, my services are provided exclusively online. Read my FAQ below for more information on my services and visit my bio page to learn more about me.

+ What is the difference between counseling/therapy and coaching?

Both counseling and coaching enable individuals to pursue personal growth through supportive reflection, insight, and skills training. For more information on the differences between counseling and coaching, please read my post on the topic.

+ What kind of clients do you see?

For therapy and coaching services, I only see adults (aged 18 and older) individually. You can reside anywhere with an internet connection to see me for coaching services. To initiate therapy services with me, you must be a Florida resident. Therapy practice is governed by state licensing boards and therefore online counseling/therapy across the state lines is not possible. Online sessions are not suitable when you are experiencing acute distress or when you recognize that you are in danger of hurting yourself and/or others. In such instances, please call 911. If you are not in immediate danger but would like to speak with someone, you can reach the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

+ How effective is online therapy vs. traditional in-person therapy?

Multiple studies indicate that online therapy is just as effective (if not more, in some cases) than traditional in-person therapy. For more information, you can reference the research listed by the Telebehavioral Health Institute.

+ How secure/private is online therapy?

All video sessions are conducted via a HIPAA compliant and highly secure site. All paperwork is completed through an online portal and stored in a secure online vault. Any online communication via email is also secure and encrypted. For more information regarding the secure online client portal and my encrypted email service, you can visit the iCouch and Hushmail websites.

+ How long is a typical session?

Sessions are 50 minutes long. If you would like to schedule a longer session, please contact me so I can see how I can accomodate you.

+ Do you offer evening and weekend slots?

Yes, I am available during non-traditional working hours and can work with your schedule.

+ How do I pay?

Payment is due in full the day of your session. I accept all major credit cards, online bank transfers, and Venmo. For more information regarding payment, see my fee page.

+ What are some tips & best practices for online sessions?

  • Find a quiet, distraction free space for the duration of session
  • Check your WiFi or network connection prior to session
  • It can be optimal to use headphones with a microphone so that you can be hand's free
  • Turn your phone on vibrate or silent and let others know that you will be unavailable during your session time
