Carol’s journey to becoming a therapist began while ministering to individuals in divorce recovery groups. This experience moved her to help and counsel individuals so they might heal their marriages and avoid divorce. Carol specializes in healing blended families, enriching marriages, counseling engaged couples, dealing with grief and loss (including divorce recovery) and post affair recovery.

She is also experienced in abuse issues and their lingering impact on lives and relationships, parenting, family, spiritual, and family of origin issues, communication and conflict resolution, intimacy, E.M.D.R., N.L.P. Certified, anxiety, depression and anger management.

Experiencing the pain of divorce in my own life, and discovering the power of transformation that can occur, I desire to minister to others to help them improve their lives, marriages, and families and to become healthy and dynamic. - Carol Brown
