Carolyn Simon LPC, RDH, C.Ht., MA, MAED,
Four plus decades of my life have been spent working in areas that required interaction with people in some aspect of counseling from nutritional counseling, assisting patients with maintaining their oral health, counseling students in my classroom, to spiritual counseling as an ordained Unity minister. My practice philosophy is fueled by the belief that all human beings are filled with dynamic potential and great possibilities even though their potential and their qualities may not have been realized by them, as yet.
With that being said, I'd like for you to picture this, a diamond a foot long. The diamond has a thousand facets but the facets are covered by dirt and grime. Yet, hidden underneath the dirt and grime lies the diamond’s brilliance—Its ESSENCE which is Flawless. Like the diamond, you possess within yourself the brilliant, glittering DIAMOND–the truth about who you truly are. Your gifts, your talents, your abilities, your possibilities, and your connection to the Divine. This is your ESSENCE. I call this the "DIAMOND AFFECT."
There are times, like a diamond prior to polishing, when your Essence-your full potential and possibilities-cannot be seen by you for the dirt and grime formed by life’s challenges. The counseling sessions are like the refining process of the diamond. Using various therapeutic and tested hypnotherapy processes, I will assist you using a wholistic approach (balancing physical, mental, and spiritual aspects of yourself) in learning skills and techniques to help you master life’s challenges so that you can begin to realize your brilliance; in a relaxed, caring, non-judgmental, dogma free environment. I am dedicated to your success as the refining process of releasing, discovering, and letting go old unproductive patterns of thought and behaviors are replaced with new skills for self-empowerment.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor working in private practice located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and the founder of InnerEssence Counseling and Clinical Hypnotherapy. In addition to being a Licensed Professional Counselor, I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, a Registered Dental Hygienist, a former Educator, and an Ordained Unity Minister. I'm excited to partner with you as you begin your life changing transformation.
