For nearly 40 years, Carol has been a passionate and committed meditation and yoga practitioner. Her spiritual practices have been intentionally woven into her professional life, completing the teacher training with Jon Kabat-Zinn in the late 1990’s at The Center for Mindfulness, formerly with the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine. Since then, she has taught the series in medical, academic and community settings, most recently, on contract with the Seattle based Veteran’s Administration.
Carol holds Masters degrees both in Developmental Psychology and Clinical Social Work, the latter from the University of Washington. In her Psychotherapy practice, she weaves together mindfulness and somatic awareness along with traditional clinical approaches. For nearly 20 years, Carol worked as both a Clinical Faculty and Systems Consultant in the Masters of Counseling program through the Leadership Institute of Seattle (LIOS) Program, affiliated with Saybrook University. Along with a private clinical practice, Carol commits 4-6 weeks annually to a meditation retreat. Her partner David and dog Bessie claim to be grateful beneficiaries of her work.
