Carol Greenberger Licensed Professional Counselor

Working to release the pain of past experiences; negative thought patterns, self defeating behaviors, compulsions, addictions and traumas with EMDR.

Psychotherapy for tweens, teens, adults and couples, specializing in EMDR. EMDR heals not only trauma, but also addictions of all kinds, compulsive behaviors, and anything upsetting. It can also be used for performance enhancement and creative endeavors.

You may be in pain, in an unhealthy relationship, anxious, depressed, or struggling with compulsive or addictive behaviors. I work to build a collaborative relationship with you, and together we discover the best way through your problems to a better life. Each of us responds differently to the many techniques of therapy but it is the client therapist relationship that heals. My clients tell me I am down to earth and easy to talk to. I began practicing psychotherapy in 1992, and since then I have developed into an intuitive yet practical counselor. I have a psychodynamic, relational approach, and I also use EMDR, cognitive behavioral therapy, dream work, adult and child creative modalities such as sandtray worldplay, as well as the knowledge gained from 25 years of mindfulness meditation. Some typical reasons people come to me are negative thought patterns, self defeating behaviors, compulsions, addictions, or feeling trapped in the pain of the past and not knowing how to let go. Some people come when they feel like life is passing them by and they want to find what their true purpose is, clarify their goals and get support in reaching them, or discover their creativity. As a visual artist, I enjoy helping artists and artmakers of all kinds, deepen their work.

Polly Young-Eisendrath

Polly shares her insight into relationships here in this post, and much more in her wonderful book, The Present Heart. One of my favorite things Polly said at a training I attended once was, "The feeling of being in love is a mini psychotic state."
In the beginning we are not in touch with reality, just projecting our fantasies onto one another. This is so true, then the work of the relationship is getting acquainted with who the other person actually is. And as we discover that there are places where our needs conflict, how we negotiate that is what makes or breaks the relationship. Most people are looking for someone who has all the same needs, "we fit together like a glove...", kind of mentality. However, complex human being do not usually fit together perfectly.

[01/20/16]   NEW GROUP BEGINNING IN FEBRUARY!

Support Group for Women in Recovery from Substance Abuse

We are offering a group for women in recovery who desire extra support and would like the healing and bonding of women. We extend a special invitation for women in their first 1-2 years of recovery. However, women with longer sobriety and at all stages of substance abuse recovery are welcome to this group in Asheville, North Carolina.
This group is not an alternative to 12 step programs or individual therapy, but an adjunct. However, being part of a small group of women who meet consistently over time and bond together, and who can support one another more deeply and fully can strengthen a recovery program. This type of group dynamic provides nourishment and empowerment for the recovery journey. Healing happens through close and connected peer support. One comment from a recent group member was: “Just being able to compare my situation with other women in a non-judgmental setting helped me to cope.” Participants help each other in a safe, confidential environment.

My colleague Colleen Welty, MA, CSAC, joins me in facilitating the group. She has worked in the substance abuse field for 20 years.
Throughout the 12 weekly group sessions, we will cover topics such as: common relapse triggers for women, boundary setting, how to develop healthy relationships, recovery support, and creation of a healthier sense of self.
For details about our support group for women, please see below. Call now for your intake session: (828) 776-9001.
One day at a time, together we move away from the pain and isolation of addiction toward the peace of discovery, understanding, and new actions.
Group Details
Asheville, North Carolina
12 weeks, Tuesdays, 12-1:30 pm beginning in February
$40 per group or $450 for 12 weeks (2 payments of $225 can be made). Intake session and group may be covered by insurance. Sliding scale available for those with limited income.
