She has devoted her practice to working with clients with Eating Disorders (Anorexia, Bulimia, ARFID, OSFED, and Binge Eating Disorder) and Anxiety diagnoses. Creating a safe and validating space for all client presentations is of the utmost importance to her. Carolyn has an empathetic and eclectic therapeutic style. This tends to take form as person-centered talk therapy, and pulls from CBT, CBT-E, DBT, and ACT, in addition to feminist and mindfulness practices.

As a member of The Association for Size Diversity and Health (ASDAH), Carolyn’s practice is informed by the principles of Health at Every Size and body neutrality. Therapy with Carolyn supports self exploration and allows for clients to improve their relationships with themselves and others, confront and challenge diet culture and Euro-centric metrics of health and beauty, develop and implement boundaries, view rest as a deeply radical act of self love, and learn and actualize what health—physical and mental—means to them.
