Introduction

Hello, My name is Carolyn Nicholson I have been a professional teacher and licensed counselor for over 20 years. I retired recently from the Michigan Public Schools and am working independently as a Life Coach and Therapist. I am a person who believes in human potential. I enjoy validating the positives in people, while assisting them trust in their own intuition and decision making.

I assist clients understand and become more familiar with their own boundaries and communication style. When clients become better equipped to identify and express their own needs, the client gains confidence and self awareness. I use and illustrate active listening, empathy and reflective questioning to help the client learn about themself.

As a teacher I made lessons interactive and fun! I taught Nutrition, Health, Stress Management, Reproductive Health, Communication and Relationships. I believe it is important to use humor and interactive activities to use as a tool to engage clients in their learning.

As a School Counselor, I ran groups for students who struggled with issues such as: their sexual identity, stress, family abuse and neglect, etc. I also met with individual students and parents as needed. I worked with parents on parenting techniques with their children. I also conducted seminars in the interest of parents and students being successful in school with academics, testing and college prep.

I currently work with clients dealing with: anxiety, depression, communication, ADHD, Alcoholism, past child abuse and/or trauma, relationship Issues, Boundary & Goal setting. It is my goal to help ALL clients see their self worth and to gain insight and skills to make their lives more manageable!

I believe in client centered therapy, cognitive therapy and solution focused therapy.I enjoy working with my clients and validating the positives in who they are!

I also believe in practicing what I preach – It is important to practice being healthy physically, mentally, socially, spiritually, intellectually. I am a cyclist, avid outdoor enthusiast, love to swim, love my pets, family and friends. I believe in eating well, enjoying life, playing piano and doing what makes me joyful.
