Therapy to me is a joint venture between therapist and client; a guided exploration into a perhaps unknown territory of change, personal growth, and transformation. Reconnecting with your unique strengths, wisdom and resources is part of this journey towards increased health and well-being in mind, body and spirit, and I feel honored and privileged to be your ally in this experience.

Thank you for all the meaningful conversation, different perspectives, hope, and warmth you have provided to me. I appreciate you and the relationship we were able to build. I am going to continue to work on being kind to myself! S….. (inner critic) came on strong 1 day but I am able to bounce out of that headspace quicker for sure. C.K., Vancouver, Canada

I came to therapy with Carola because I was experiencing some intrusive thoughts and I wanted to improve on some of my close relationships. Carola is a supportive, considerate and caring listener, as well as knowledgeable and experienced in various modern wellness strategies. She thoughtfully and effectively guided me to gain practical trauma-informed and CBT-based tools for better managing my emotions and my circumstances. Carola helped me to become more aware of, address and reframe many of the issues I was struggling with, and consequently to feel more satisfied with my experiences. To anyone considering working with Carola, I would say absolutely take the opportunity to do so – you’ll be in great hands with her! M.N., Vancouver, Canada

I came to Carola with major depression symptoms, caused by a substantial identity crisis. This was all new to me. Meeting Carola was a game changer for me. Session by session I started to feel better. Carola gave me positivity, light, strength and the courage to keep going. Her warmth, openness, kindness, authenticity and professional approach lead me to a path of healing. We talked hours and hours, sometimes online too. And no matter the situation or problem, I immediately felt better after talking to her. Moreover, Carola handed me over many efficient tools in order to overcome difficult situations and/or thought processes. Carola also checked up on me many times after the treatment had ended. We’ve been in touch with each other for a while now and I am very fond of our exchange. I’m very grateful for what she’s done for me and she’ll have a special place in my heart because of her contribution to my healing. C.B., Barcelona, Spain
