Carol received her Masters degree from the University of Nevada, Reno. Her undergraduate degree was in Speech and Language Pathology from California University in Fullerton.

Carol has worked with parents of children who suffer from various learning disabilities and how that may impact the family dynamics, especially marriages. She also enjoys working with women who have experienced childhood sexual trauma and post-abortion syndrome. Carol finds many blessings working with married couples as they look at their part of the dysfunction, not their mate's dysfunction. The Bible is very clear on the attitudes that bless the relationship and those that strain the relationship. Carol offers biblical counseling in dealing with life issues both at Agape (if desired) and in Carson City at the Center of Biblical Counseling. Carol has been a volunteer counselor at the Carson City Community Pregnancy Center for many years. She is a member of AACC (American Association of Christian Counselors), through which she is a Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor.
