You know, relationships don’t always go the way we think they will. We might lose something, or someone, that means a lot to us. We might find it difficult to understand why we’re behaving differently. Or it might be an unfamiliar feeling that we just can’t seem to shake off. Sometimes, we need a bit of counseling to understand what’s going on and that’s where Mindwork comes in.
When you visit Mindwork, you and I will spend some time each week counseling, to increase your self-awareness and helping you gain more insight into your inner-life. We’ll work together on your relationship both with yourself and with others, so you can get more out of every day and meet any challenge life throws at you.
Hi, I’m Carolyn and I specialize in Relationship Counseling NYC
I started Mindwork back in 2007 for people who want to get a better understanding of themselves and the world around them.
After working as a designer for a number of years, I felt the need to collaborate with people in a more meaningful way. So I went back to school to pursue a Masters of Social Work and started practicing psychotherapy in 2002.
I now spend my days working with people to understand what changes they need to make to live the lives they want and, more importantly, what they can do to make those changes stick.
So if you haven’t been feeling like yourself lately, let’s figure it out together.

To understand what’s making you feel alone, we’ll focus on your inner and outer experiences and work together to find useful things you can do to feel more connected to the world.
Depression affects the way you think and feel, it can even affect you physically. It can alter the way you think about yourself, your relationships and the people around you and the events you experience every day. We’ll work together to understand what’s going on and help you feel more positive.
There are times when making a decision feels impossible. We’re not sure about who we are, how we live, who we love, or whether we’d be better off in a different career. But by spending some time together, we can help you find a sense of clarity and work out what’s really important to you.
