Who Am I?


I'm Dr. Carole Goguen


In my late teens and early 20’s, I struggled with finding my place in the world. The more I went from one dead-end job to another, the more I felt insecure and lost. My insecurity slowly turned into anxiety and feeling lost led to depression. Gradually, I began to see every setback as a failure and every failure felt traumatizing.

So I turned to my old friends, books. I began reading everything I could get my hands on to try to help myself. The more I learned, the more I knew I needed to go deeper. I began therapy. That decision changed everything! I learned a more realistic, helpful view of both myself and the world. I learned to be kind to myself. I became a confident, independent woman.

The Power of Therapy Transformed Me

When I didn’t have to constantly fight self-doubt, sadness, worry, confusion, and emotional exhaustion, I was able to open myself up to find my passion. I realized that my passion is to help others to heal like I have. And I would really need that passion.


Starting college at an age when most people were well into their careers was really hard but I loved learning about how we develop and what can go wrong with our emotional lives. And I especially loved learning and working with wonderful people struggling with all kinds of different of challenges in their lives.

Now I Put My Passion Into Action

All that hard work paid off. Now I’m working with people from all walks of life. For over 20 years, I have been helping people just like you to feel comfortable participating in activities with their loved ones, create more meaningful emotional connections, become self-assured, develop a positive outlook, feel calm, have more patience, and feel more up-beat.   

From personal experience, I know how hard it is to get to therapy when your life is jam-packed with work, school, and family. That's why I decided to offer evening online video therapy. Not only do I have office hours on Saturday afternoons, but you can see me in the comfort of your own home at hours that work for you. Now with easy-to-use video technology, I can see you as late as 10:00 pm.
