Individual and Family Counseling

Children, Tweens and Teens encounter stressors and challenges daily. Carolyn loves to work with these age groups to teach strategies and skills to manage anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, poor self-esteem, and peer conflicts, in the school setting or at home. Therapy sessions can be individual to address the challenges and skills, and/or include parents/guardians to reinforce skills to work on at home, between sessions. Therapy is most successful when clients know their goals, and have support to achieve them.

Behavior Support

Behavior challenges can impact the whole family.  When treating children with behavior challenges, Carolyn works with parents and siblings, offering support and techniques.   Behavior support plans for home and/or school can be key in improving a child’s functioning, relationships, self-esteem, confidence and overall success. Topics to tackle include opening lines of communication, creating healthy boundaries, and setting limits and consequences consistently. Carolyn and also support parents in accessing Special Education support if academic, emotional or behavior concerns qualifies student for supports in school.

New Parent Support

Adjusting to parenthood is a major transition in life, and can bring highs and lows. Pregnancy and becoming a new parent can bring up a lot of feelings that most women (men, too!) experience, but aren’t comfortable addressing openly. It is so important that new parents take time to take care of themselves, so they can be the best parent they can. Carolyn has experience working with women and couples to navigate this exciting, and sometimes difficult, transition.

Practitioners

Elizabeth Venart, LPC

Elizabeth Venart’s approach to supervision is rooted in a humanistic, relational framework. She has been providing on-site and adjunct LPC supervision to clinicians working in diverse practice settings for over 15 years.

While providing clinicians with a variety of concrete strategies to strengthen their work, her primary focus is on the quality of the relationship between counselor and client—and any obstacles to empathy and mindfulness. Elizabeth invites counselors to listen deeply to clients and their stories and to trust themselves and their intuition more fully.

Understanding the influence of practice setting challenges, I provide LPC candidates with a supportive environment in which they can be authentic, share their struggles and triumphs, cultivate a trauma-informed perspective, and promote resiliency in themselves and the people with whom they work.

Elizabeth Venart is eligible to provide 100% of the required supervision hours to LPC Candidates and 50% of the required supervision hours to Marriage and Family Therapist and Clinical Social Work candidates.
