Hi, I’m Carolin. I’m a clinical psychologist and operations manager at Thomas Park MD & Associates. 

My fancy professional bio is down below but practically, I’m a warm, compassionate person who thinks

  • hard work is fun,
  • laughing and crying are both useful,
  • and our therapy/training/mentoring will include all of it: hard work, laughing, and crying.

I know a lot about a few things: psychology, trauma, resilience, burnout, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), exposure therapy, neurocognitive treatment, and intentional living.

More importantly, I’m on a journey just like you. I have struggled in my life, my family, my marriage, my parenting, and in my job.

I have yearned to know more, feel better, and show up steadier for the challenges of life.
