Hello! I’m Anna

Pre-licensed Counselor

Anna Larsen

Anna Larsen Pre-licensed Counselor Change can only occur in a strong, secure therapeutic alliance, and it is my goal to create an atmosphere that aids in developing a successful therapeutic relationship. I believe clients are the experts of their own lives, and it is my role to help uncover patterns, explore new perspectives and provide tools for growth.

My approach is to explore past experiences through uncovering the unconscious mind, coping with present struggles and challenges, as well as planning and finding purpose in the future. I work from a holistic and trauma informed perspective to give you the most appropriate care. Not only will we use therapeutic tools to help overcome difficulties, but we will explore lifestyle changes that may affect overall mental and physical health.

I have experience working with clients with chronic pain and sleep disturbances. I have special training in dream interpretation as well. I work with individuals, couples, families and groups to provide therapy. My specialty and passion is treating children and adolescents. It is important to contextualize children and adolescents as part of their larger systems such as school, friendships, family and community. I work closely with caregivers in order to continue progress made in sessions in the home, as well as collaborate with schools or other resources.

I also have extensive experience working with children with Autism, anxiety and trauma, as well as children experiencing family separation, loss, adoption or bullying. I look forward to starting your counseling journey with you! It is my goal for you to achieve a healthy and purposeful mindset.

Hey There! I’m Julia

Masters Level Intern Counselor

Julia Miler

Change can happen at any time, and I believe that each client has the ability to create that change. I see counseling as a team effort to create and reach therapeutic goals for every client.

With a variety of coursework and relevant life experiences, my goal is to help each client feel accepted, heard, and comfortable.

I have spent the last five years at Rosemont College gaining insight and knowledge that can help create an environment that inspires and motivate clients to reach their therapeutic goals. Using a person-centered, holistic approach helps clients create a connection between themselves, their environment, and their mental wellbeing.

I graduated from Rosemont College with my Bachelors in Psychology in May of 2022, and I am currently working toward a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling – pre-licensed.

My counselor really cares about me. She listens to all my concerns and then directs me through each piece of my concerns helping me cope with or move through. I would highly recommend her for your needs too.
Melissa Pennington
When I started seeing Carolena I was in a very strange place in my life and not sure what to do. From the first meeting I knew she was the right fit for me and that I would be in good hands. She gives it to you straight, no sugar coating and holds you accountable to your goals which in my opinion is the very essence on why we see therapists. She's been wonderful to work with, genuinely cares and supports you through whatever it is your needing her for. She truly gets to know you as a person and adjusts your sessions to meet those individual needs accordingly. People have told me they see the difference in my reaction to things; how I handle stressful situations and how I respond to toxic family members. All improvements I attribute to the work Carolena puts in with me. She also insisted on my husband and my children joining me for sessions which helped us all communicate better as a family unit and understand each other more on different levels. I highly recommend Carolena; if you want a genuine therapist who helps you set the goals you want to achieve and goes out of her way to ensure you hit them. Down to earth, supportive and all around very good at what she does, this was her calling and it shows.
