I agree with everyone who gave this lady one star and their reasoning; save your time and money and go elsewhere.

I will always be grateful for her guidance and willingness to help me make the changes I needed to make. Other therapists I have been to were not willing to do anything but listen. Carol helped me take the steps I needed for a better life.

Lying quack, pushed outdated medical theories and dangerous drugs. Save yourself time, money and disappointment. You're better off just hurting.

If you are willing to be held accountable and do your homework assignments, you will see results. I am grateful for her help.

I first went to Carol for relationship counseling and rather than listen to us and offer advice on the issues we were having she fixated on our Enneagram personalities. She suggested I be on medication after the 3rd session we went for and tried to get me to believe in a higher power even though I told her I'm an atheist. She did not respect my beliefs at all. I could go on and on about how awful she is but let me just say, she does more harm than good.

Before having all the facts, details, or enough information to make a genuine conclusion, she told me over the phone that my marriage was over and nothing could fix it. I sought help feeling good about it, and she completely destroyed every sliver of hope I had, before even learning of my situation. The friend that recommended militaryonesource, the service this was provided through, said she was told the exact same thing, and even told her not to get pregnant. I would not recommend her.

I would not recommend seeing this therapist. She says she doesn't candy Côte things, which I would appreciate, but it seems she may project her own experiences onto your situation and make assumptions based on her own experience vs your own situation.

Carol has helped me in more ways than I could imagine. My husband and I went for marriage counseling, and not only did she save our marriage, she also helped us with our teenage children. I highly recommend her!

I would recommend Carol Barnett for life's daily issues where venting is the cure. Unfortunately, I would not recommend Ms. Barnett for relationship issues or grief, as she unintentionally projects her views upon these surrounding issues, whereas, a new set of lenses would be the best method when dealing with such clients. Also, note any usage of fragrance (perfume, cologne) on skin or clothing is an issue for this therapist.

Amazing, she works with you. Providing realistic tools given various situations. i have treated with other providers who are afraid to be honest about situations, even if you happen to be wrong. If you are looking for someone to candy coat your situation you've found the wrong Southern woman. Although, I relocated across the United States, Carol still provides guidance and tools to this very day. You won't be disappointed and her K9 companion is adorable!
