Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Greetings. Working in the field of psychology for the past 15 years, with clients of many cultural backgrounds and diversity, allowed me to craft a practice that incorporates theories and methods of psychology with spirituality. While building my practice, I have worked with a spectrum of issues that might lead someone to seek psychotherapy. My emphasis is in providing my clients with a safe space to explore their life journey as well as bringing issues to light, and encouraging better life choices to be made in the present while processing and letting go of past traumas and pain that may be holding them back. I seek to create an atmosphere where a range of issues can be worked through. These include divorce, pre marriage, LGBT issues, race, biracial/mixed families, as well as couples, individuals, and adolescents. I have successfully worked with issues involving physical injury and trauma. In addition, I have worked with clients coping with dysphoric body image and eating disorders. I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you. Feel free to call me for a brief telephone consultation. Please see my website for more information: www.carolsalnavelmft.com

I am in private practice, delivering telemedicine via Skype and FaceTime or by phone. My area of special emphasis is helping people improve their important relationships, and working with my clients to decrease and stop depression. If you are reading this, chances are one or more of your important relationshps are not working very well. Whether it's difficulty with a partner or spouse, teens or parents, friends or co-workers, a troubled relationship is painful.
