About Caroline Velasquez
Hi! My name is Caroline Velasquez. I work with people who feel stuck and have trouble moving beyond their past. I also work with people who wonder if they will be able to succeed in life or if their current life is how their life will always be. As you read this, you might be wondering if we will be able to relate to each other or if I will understand what you are going through. To help you make that decision, I want to let you know a little bit about me and my background.
One of the questions I get asked most frequently is why I chose to specialize in treating trauma and anxiety? It's because I have been there. I get the struggle because I have lived it which helps me to truly understand what it takes to move through those issues. You are unique and have lived a different life journey than me so what it takes for you to move through your struggles will be different than my path to healing. I will work hard to help you discover the path that moves you along your journey. I believe that you can heal and move forward in your life.
About my training and experience:
I love to learn and I am always seeking new opportunities to develop my skills. While in school, I completed specialties in treating children with trauma and treating anxiety. Following my school studies, I participated in several trainings to develop more skills in treating adults who have experienced trauma and a wide variety of other issues.
I have been providing services to children and adults who deal with concerns such as trauma, anxiety, depression, gender identity issues, and schizophrenia. I spent 5 years doing this work in a community mental health setting. I have been providing counseling services in private practice since 2017. I have found that I am passionate about working with persons who are dealing with anxiety and trauma and frequently seek out additional training in treating these issues. You can find a list of several of the trainings I have completed on my website.
