MEET CAROLINE

"These things will be hard, but you can do hard things." - Glennon Doyle

Caroline Eglseder, LCSW-C

Making the decision to seek therapy is brave. Facing past trauma or chronic stress can be anxiety-producing to say the least. I know that healing is possible for everyone. I consider it a privilege to be a compassionate witness for you on your healing journey. I will hold a safe, non-judgmental space in which all feelings and parts of my clients’ selves feel heard and validated.

I offer free 15-minute consultations and am available to connect via email, phone,  or you can schedule an appointment at the link below. 

TRAUMA

Trauma is an actual or perceived threat to life or safety. Trauma shakes us. It changes us. My aim is to help you restore your sense of safety and well-being after experiencing trauma or chronic stress.

 

RESILIENCE

 

For anyone who has suffered trauma or chronic stress, there exists a version of yourself that was present before the impact. I like to think of this as who you were meant to be before life got messy. Tapping into your resilience - and yes, you have it - can get you back to this version of yourself.

FLUIDITY

Trauma and chronic stress create rigidity in our inner narratives and in our bodies. Rigidity is taxing. It limits us. I help clients re-claim balance and fluidity through tapping into the body’s inner wisdom. Where fluidity exists, healing and self-compassion can thrive.

MY APPROACH

My therapeutic style is warm and nurturing. Holding a therapeutic space and honoring your trauma is my first priority. My approach to therapy is to help you understand your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors through a new lens. Often, we know that we need to change a pattern. We may even know that a thought, feeling or behavior is a response to trauma. We cannot create lasting change with this realization alone. Through present moment awareness of both the mind and body, I help you identify the root cause of what is bothering you, and heal from it.

EDUCATION & TRAINING

ON A PERSONAL NOTE
  • I absolutely love dogs and the outdoors. One of my professional goals is to train a therapy dog in the future!

  • I was born and raised on Maryland's Eastern Shore and still live there. My favorite sound in the world is the sound of migratory geese making their way to the shore in the fall. 

  • Some of my favorite hobbies are listening to music, (watching, not participating in) theater productions, and reading fiction novels.  

  • I absolutely love summer time and the beach. The more hot and humid it is outside, the happier I am. I could sit in the sand all day long and be perfectly content.
