Hello and welcome. My name is Caroline Vernon and I am currently working towards full licensure as a Professional Counselor in South Dakota. I have been working in the counseling field for nearly 10 years and have worked internationally in social work positions. I work from a collaborative and strengths based approach in which I encourage clients to be the author of their lives. My therapy style is inherently holistic as it is grounded in mindfulness, unconditional positive regard and the firm belief that healing is possible for everyone. I seek to find the wisdom in all actions instead of the pathology and work collaboratively with clients to heal pain and confusion. Using EMDR, CBT and Mindfulness, I work with people who have experienced severe trauma, substance use disorders, have symptoms of PTSD, anxiety, depression, and people living with mood disorders. I am LGBTQIA+ friendly meaning that all are welcome and can expect loving support here.
Hello! I am a USD graduate in both my Bachelors and Masters degree. I studied psychology and communication during my undergrad years, then transitioned directly into graduate school to gain my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. My areas of interest include depression, anxiety, and grief and loss work as well as working with addiction.
I became a counselor because I am passionate about working with individuals and couples to make change in their lives. Coming from a Person-Centered approach, I provide a non-judgmental and collaborative safe space for my clients to explore underlying issues that cause imbalance in their lives. The therapeutic space is that of compassion, support, empathy, empowerment and acceptance. I use a variety of techniques and tailor treatment to meet the needs of every individual I see. I believe you have already taken the first and most important step by walking through the door.
