About Carol Caskey. LMSW MSEd
“Can people really change?” That is a question I often hear. I understand that change can be scary which makes it difficult; we don’t want to abandon ourselves to become something unknown. Instead, I encourage people to “grow.” Growing is a process that is familiar to us, we are just working to become better, stronger, happier and emotionally healthier. Yes, we can work together to help you grow.
I enjoy meeting with people and helping them discover their path to emotional health. Emotionally healthy people have a wide variety of emotions (not all of them pleasant). Emotional health can simply mean that people have learned they can cope with all their emotions and not get stuck in the difficult ones.
I have earned a master’s degree from the University of Kansas in counseling psychology where I spent 4 years researching Schizophrenia. I am Licensed Master Social Worker in the state of Iowa. I have been working in the counseling field for over 25 years.
I have several passions, besides my work. I have a wonderful spouse, 3 delightfully unique daughters, a dedicated son-in-law, and 2 adorable grandkids. Volunteer work is very rewarding for me, including my work in Tanzania, (Africa) and in Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota; working with other populations helps me to have a broader perspective on life and what is really important. I also enjoy gardening, reading fiction, hanging out with friends, walking my dog, and playing in the rain.
