Carole Douglas, LCPC
Carole is seasoned Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) with over 13 years of experience in counseling, educating, and Christian ministry. Carole has worked with children and adults suffering from a wide range of disorders, e.g. ADHD, anxiety, depression, and autism, to clients seeking to overcome substance abuse, or who are in post-trauma recovery. Carole also specializes in play therapy. Play therapy builds on the natural way that children and adults learn about themselves and their relationships in the world around them (Axline, 1947; Carmichael, 2006; Landreth, 2002). Through play therapy, clients learn to communicate with others, express feelings, modify behavior, develop problem-solving skills, and learn a variety of ways of relating to others. Play provides a safe psychological distance from client’s problems and allows expression of thoughts and feelings appropriate to their development.
