She received her B.A. in Anthropology and Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies with a minor in Psychology from the University of Virginia in 2020. She decided to enter a Master’s level counseling program due to her desire to learn more about the resources available to provide mental-health care for diverse presenting needs, ponder how to increase accessibility of these resources and participate in change in this regard, and gain hands-on experience providing care that is vital in a fast-paced society that often leaves individuals and families feeling isolated and overwhelmed. She had the wonderful opportunity to work for a private practice with a highly diverse clientele during her practicum, and especially enjoyed working with children and providing early intervention to help instill in them tools to recognize and regulate emotions. Having become part of the New Horizons Family Counseling treatment staff during the Summer of 2021, Caroline gained an appreciation of the family system as a critical locus of change even in scenarios where an individual is the identified client.
