I always leave conversations with her with a better sense of how to navigate a particular situation or dynamic and empathy for all of those involved, most importantly, myself. She blends her years of advanced trainings with a deep, soft wisdom and knowing that makes you realize that all is going to be ok, and challenges are opportunities for healing and growth.Janet
I can attest to your compassionate and effective (non judgemental!) approach- so helpful and comforting. Good luck to all the parents out there. Toughest job ever- just thankful to have a "Carol" to help navigate the journey.Member of The Joyful Parent Group
I call Carol Passmore our family’s Guardian Angel. Our child struggled with extreme social anxiety and could not get out of bed and attend school. Our family and public school where at a loss on how to help him and then we met Carol. She provided the counseling to both us parents and our child, and made the connections for us to get our child the medical and mental help needed so that he could attend school. He went on to graduate high school with honors and attend a college 1,200 miles away from home! Without her knowledgeable and expert advice our child would not have learned the skills he is using today to be a well-adjusted, successful young man. We feel so blessed that Carol came into our lives and we will be forever grateful for her.Cheryl and Dave

This year’s holiday season will be especially challenging, marked by the coronavirus pandemic. At the end of this long year of disappointment and frustration, it might feel difficult to look forward to and embrace the joys of the holiday season. How can your family celebrate and find new traditions to create that reflect the true meaning of this time.
Our job as parents isn’t to provide certainty in a time of uncertainty. Our job is to help kids tolerate the uncertainty, to teach resilience, problem solving, creativity, and working together to create a peaceful harmonious environment.
