Who am I as a counselor?
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate in the state of North Carolina (#A14436). I am also a National Certified Counselor through the National Board of Certified Counselors (#1024496). I graduated from Appalachian State University with a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a graduate certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy in August of 2018. Prior to graduate school, I completed my B.A. in Psychology, with minors in both Plant Biology and Horticulture from North Carolina State University in 2012. To guide my work, my clinical supervisor is Susannah Furr, LPC (#13071, QS123116), with almost 30 years of experience as a counselor. She is located in Asheville, NC with NowAwakeNow and has many fantastic offerings coupled with her extensive experience. My current clinical interests include transpersonal and depth psychologies.
I am a person-centered expressive arts counselor. I offer unconditional positive regard in a nonjudgmental therapeutic atmosphere. The arts allow oneself to explore in the present moment. This healing process may be facilitated through therapeutic writing, visual arts, collage, movement, dreamwork, eco-therapeutic connections with nature, and many others. These are not art technique lessons and there is not a right or wrong way to engage in therapeutic expressive arts. Join me to experience healing from a present moment healing arts process that is unique to you and your personal expression and goals. I will draw upon a variety of artistic modalities throughout our sessions to promote emotional healing and overall well-being for your self-care toolbox. For more information on this service, please visit the expressive arts counseling tab.
Who am I as an intuitive healer?
My focus with intuitive healing sessions is through heart-centered love and light. I deliver messages and aura drawings of strength and joy to assist with your personal intuitive empowerment. My intuitive offerings stem from my lifelong connection with the celestial realms, spirit guides, fairies, and the spirit energies of animals and plants. I am extremely cognizant of energy, auras, and the energies in my environment. I began reading oracle cards when I was nine years old. I then became a Certified Angel Card Reader® through Hay House. My studies continue with James Van Praagh's advanced mediumship level II class. I am also certified at the basic levels (1-5) in Human and Universal Energy Healing, and I studied Transcendental Meditation and Ayurveda. I have significant experience offering in-person intuitive readings at Dancing Moon Earthway Bookstore in Boone, NC. To learn more about what a typical intuitive session looks like, please see the intuitive sessions tab on this website.
I wholeheartedly join you on this journey as a stepping stone on your unique healing process. I truly care about helping you feel better along your life path by creating a sense of personal resilience and interconnectedness in our world. I look forward to speaking with you further.
Caroline Van Nort
