About this pro

Sometimes we all struggle and feel like we just can't overcome the issues we're having. I've been there. Problems that keep us from enjoying life and living the life that we truly want to live. Sometimes it seems easier just to give up, stay at home, binge watch TV and ignore it all...but deep down, we want more. We want our lives to be what it seems other people have, good relationships, peace and happiness, and positive self worth. So we struggle, we try to pretend, try to force ourselves into what we think is supposed to be...but we aren't being true to ourself. Deep down we just dont feel "right." Is this how you feel? Are your relationships with others suffering? How about the relationship with yourself? It starts with loving yourself.

I've dedicated my life to helping others feel good about themself. Once we feel good about who we are, we can improve and build relationships with others. There are specific steps we can take to learn to love ourself and learn how to build our relationships with others. I will give you tools you can use daily to improve your life. You are worth it. Take the first step, and call for your free 15 minute consultation. Let's talk about the next step we can take to get you closer to where you want to be. 

It feels good to me to help someone face their struggles, work through them and win! When someone is able to work through their issues, and come out on the other side, a transformation occurs that is simply beautiful! I am blessed to be able to be a part of that!

    Carla was very helpful and really took the time to get a clear understanding of my situation. I called Carla because she offered a free phone consultation and I could tell right away that she would be a perfect fit for me. The office environment at Life Line Counseling was warm and welcoming. I was immediately relaxed and comfortable being able to open up in a way that makes my sessions with Carla truly beneficial. Occasionally Carla gives me homework assignments that have been enlightening to me as well and helps to track my progress going into my next session. I can recommend Carla and Lifeline Counseling without hesitation. If you are thinking of counseling for yourself or a family member, please reach out to Carla as I did. That first call was the most difficult for me to make, but I am certainly glad that I took that leap of faith!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I listen. I listen to what you want to tell me about your life. I learn from you what parts of your life are going good, and what parts of your life need some improvement. Sometimes we all need help. After you talk and I learn about you, I give you feedback about what you've told me, and I create a plan of how we can make changes in the areas that are troublesome. I discuss this plan with you and you let me know if the plan sounds good to you and then we get to work! 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have Master of Arts in Professional Counseling. I graduated from Liberty University. I have worked with families since 2011, children, teens and parents. My specialty is helping people get along better with their loved ones, starting with themself! We have to love ourself first, in order to give love to others. I work on communication skills, self esteem issues, and relationships. These are the important parts of our lives that either make or break our hearts. It is so worth the time to work on improving how we see ourselves and how we relate to others. That's what makes life incredible or dreadable. You decide.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

I have a standard price of $150 for the initial assessment and then each visit after that is $100.

I offer a sliding fee scale based on income which is helpful for lower income families. (I am here to help, and I try to make it so that everyone can get help.)


How did you get started in this business?

I have worked with families whose children were at risk for removal by child protection for various issues, most were that the adolescent was acting out due to underlying issues that needed to be improved, such as low self-esteem, relationship issues with family or peers, or just learning how to communicate their true feelings. These things are powerful parts of ourselves that can impact how our life turns out and where we end up. I've went through some very tough times myself, and once I came through it, I just wanted to help others do the same.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with at adolescents and adults. I have worked with people with low self-esteem, anger issues, ADHD, Depression, relationship issues, and other various issues. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A couple of days ago, one of my best friends' aunt was being discharged into hospice after a long battle with illness. A nurse that had cared for her since she started the battle 14 years ago, decided to take her patient into a large room for the hospital and performed ball room dancing for her (waltz) with her dance instructor. The nurse had hand made her own beautiful ballgown and performed the waltz for my friends dying aunt. It was very special. I am so impressed with people that go out of their way to do things such as this for other people. It doesn't take much to make a big difference in someone else's life.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

When you meet someone, you know when you "click." It's the same with finding your therapist. If you don't "click" then find someone else. Finding that connected relationship will make all the difference in your therapy. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Are you ready to commit to change? We can't solve our problems with the same thinking that we used when we created them. If your not ready to think about things in a different way, then don't go. But if you are... you're life can be everything you've always wanted!
