Carolyn Davis, EdD
I have over sixteen years of counseling and coaching experience working with individuals and groups in private clinic, hospital, corporate and higher education environments.
My approach emphasizes strengths, values, and a growth framework for increasing self-understanding, resolving personal health and relationship concerns, and achieving life goals.
Relief from your most urgent challenges is the utmost priority. As things unfold through the counseling/coaching process you'll learn to release unhealthy patterns, develop new ways of being, and create a connection with what's genuine and essential in you. All of which brings greater ease and fulfillment in life.
I hold a State of Wisconsin Professional Counselor License, Doctorate degree in Adult Education from National Louis University in Chicago (focus in Transpersonal Psychology and Developmental Stages of Identity Consciousness), Master's in Professional Counseling from Concordia University Wisconsin, and a Bachelor's in Psychology from DePaul University in Chicago.
My approach is holistic, action-oriented and transformative. This brings immediate positive quality of life improvements, and with dedicated lifestyle practice, leads to enduring freedom from limiting thoughts/beliefs and sabotaging behaviors as well as recovery from distorted self-perception. I integrate deep listening, psycho-education,and practical skill-building using a variety of evidenced-based techniques drawing from Trauma Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Prolonged Exposure, Mindfulness, and Emotional Freedom Adaption Technique (EFAT). I also have over 14-years of experience working with the Human Design System.
My own regular health regime includes Mindfulness, Meditation, and a variety of fitness/wellness practices.
My Core Values
Love-- the unifying force and essence of life, a healed state of mind.
Present Moment Living-- brings competence, safety, compassion, gratitude and joy.
Integrity-- wholeness, an eyes-and-heart-wide-open acceptance of all parts of who we are and recognizing we're connected collaborative co-creators.
Universal Law-- relates to ethical behavior and commitment to serve the highest good. Universal law honors the structures that support life and those who came before us. It acknowledges that we stand on the shoulders of giants--spiritual, intellectual and artistic.
