Carolyn Riviere-Placzek   MFTC

Mental Health Professionals

I have a passion for clients who are struggling with transitional issues such as the following: depression, work & family balance; grief & loss; postpartum depression; adolescent & parenting; separation & divorce; blending & step-parenting; to name a few. Helping to prepare individuals & families for life events and crisis's is a pillar of my practice. I bring years of personal experience, expertise, training, and educational focus in marriage and family systemic based therapy, results oriented treatments and solutions for all involved! I look forward to speaking about how we can work together to meet your goals and objectives.

My specialty focuses on relationships and emotional connections that I believe are two of the most powerful forces which move individuals into searches for transformation and healing. I use pluralistic approaches centered on a theoretical orientation of attachment and neuro-personal psychology based on solid, proven methodologies, treatments & solutions.

I combine a past history of 25 years, corporate career with a psychotherapy practice, concentrating on individuals, couples and families with a systemic focus, attachment and integrative approach to healing.
