About my practice:
Thank you for visiting SOAR Counseling Services, LLC!
My name is Caroline Mittmann, and I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with a special interest in working with children and families who would like to learn methods to manage difficult life circumstances or ways to strengthen current relationships. Not all who seek therapy need be in distress! However, I understand that many who seek therapy are struggling and are looking for someone to listen and work with them to reach a place of health and satisfaction.
I believe therapy is a joint, active process, where a client can learn, heal, and grow into the person he or she would like to be. SOAR is an acronym that describes my approach to therapy - “Systemic, Open-minded, Active, Research-based.” I enjoy working with young children, adolescents, and their parents or caregivers, but I also work well with individuals of any age and families.
I am a graduate of Wofford College, with a B.S. in Psychology (magna cum laude); Converse College, with a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy; and West Gate Family Therapy Institute, with a Post-Degree Certificate (emphasis in play therapy). I am a fully licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Registered Play Therapist. I am a native of South Carolina and grew up in Columbia. I've lived in the Upstate for 13 years, am married, and have a son. I enjoy outdoor sports, reading, and puzzles.
