My Approach to Helping
Hello, my name is Dr. Carole Brooks, therapist and owner of Diamond Counseling.
Do you feel your life is spinning out of control; and that no one understands what you are going through? Or are you struggling with relationship issues? There really is no need to procrastinate any longer when help is around the corner.
As your neighborhood therapist, I provide counseling services for women, men, couples, teens, children and the elderly. Some of the counseling services that I provide include, but are not limited to, depression, anxiety, relationships (couples/marriage), self-esteem, parenting, grief, abuse, anger and life transitions.
My approach to counseling is cognitive-behavioral and involves unconditional, positive regard toward my clients and will focus on healthy thinking patterns. I am also trained in EMDR therapy which helps clients who are dealing with traumatic issues from the past.
My clients find me likeable and enjoy my humor and outgoing nature; mixed with deep insight concerning their troubling issues. My child and teen clients particularly enjoy my humor. Unlike most therapists, I am a full-time licensed professional counselor who can provide convenient hours 5 days a week.
You can call me at the number above.
More Info About My Practice
Appointments are available Monday through Thursday; daytime and evenings and Saturday mornings to help fit your busy schedule. My office is located in a beautiful, professional, convenient-to-find office park setting at Hampden Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard.
MY EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND:
Ph.D. in Christian Counseling, Northwestern Theological Seminary, 2012
M.A. in Community Counseling, University of Phoenix-Lone Tree Campus, 2005
B.A. in Business Management, University of Phoenix-Lone Tree Campus, 1997
MY RATES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
$120 per hour for individual counseling sessions.
$220 per 90-Minute session for couples and for any session involving two or more people.
Through much experience I have found sessions involving two or more people need time to "air-out" issues and come to some closure concerning those issues, which is best accomplished with a 90-minute minimum session length.
I DO NOT PROCESS INSURANCE.
I can provide you with a monthly statement that summarizes your sessions with me that you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. Often my clients that choose this route are successful at receiving some level of reimbursement from their insurance.
FINDING A THERAPIST CAN BE A DIFFICULT TASK
After all, how does a person like yourself, who is seeking therapy, come to feel comfortable and confident enough to overcome the apprehensiveness about making that initial contact with a therapist?
I believe my website provides the information you need to feel comfortable knowing that I provide the professional counseling services you deserve. Diamond Counseling is a trusted name in the community and can provide the professional counseling services you deserve. I absolutely love being a therapist and I believe it shows in the quality of counseling you will receive.
I look forward to hearing from you!
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
Like my clients, I have faced hardships (both as a child and an adult). I face many of the same challenges of being a mother, wife, and business woman. I use my past struggles to empathize with my clients' struggles and concerns. I genuinely want to see my clients overcome their concerns and thrive. Most people just need someone to believe in them, and I am often honored to do that for my clients.
