Something in your life isn’t working. Your relationships, self-esteem or overall happiness isn’t where you want it to be. You’ve got a lot on your mind, and you wonder if talking to someone would help.
My creative and practical approach helps reveal the blind spots, obstacles and underlying issues getting in your way so you can make healthier decisions, build better relationships and find peace and happiness in each day.
Hello, I'm Carolyn Ball, owner of Elevate Counseling
I'm so glad you're here.
Starting therapy always involves a bit of risk taking. It can be daunting to share the most intimate details of your personal story so if you're feeling a bit uneasy about it, that's completely normal. Elevate Counseling + Wellness is intended to be a warm and welcoming place for you to push past the discomfort and take the first steps toward figuring things out and living the life you want. Yes, therapy is hard work, but I am confident you’ll find the work worthwhile.
Please take the opportunity to delve into the services I offer for teens and adults, and to learn a bit more about me and my approach. If you feel I would be a good fit for you or you just have some questions for me, I hope you'll reach out so we can get started.

Carolyn has been an excellent counselor for me. She listens and hears what I am saying. She helps reframe my experiences in a practical, meaningful way. She encourages me to come up with ways to improve my life rather than tell me what to do. Time and time again she helped me become clear on how I can live a better, healthier life with more positive thinking.
