Multi-Cultural, Intersectional, & Cross-Cultural Counseling


As an intersectional therapist, I try to be attuned to the interplay of culture, sexual orientation, race, gender, class, disability, and other identities. In addition to the importance of these factors in development, identity, and daily life, I also explore their impact throughout therapy:

  • Navigating multiple identities
  • Honoring clients' cultures
  • Dealing with various types of oppression as well as their internalization
  • Attending to the impact of these factors in relational, family, and communal concerns
  • Attending to specific issues such as 2nd-generational concerns, cross-cultural adoption issues, migrating from one culture to another, navigating dynamics within interracial couples, etc.
  • Working with issues of displacement and dislocation
  • Exploring identity development

Together, in a supportive environment, we can attend to whatever concerns you may have.

"Carolyn's office is a cozy refuge where you are just as likely to laugh as to cry. With her warm, caring, and attentive ear, she will gently lead you to theraputical epiphanies, whether you are having a crisis or just trying to get through the week. Also, if your mental health issues are exacerbated by social injustice and/or the patriarchy, Carolyn is definitely the right therapist to see."
