Hi! I’m Carol Lozier- psychotherapist, author, and blogger specializing in trauma, adoptive and foster kids and teens, and DBT for kids and teens.. In my private practice, I offer individual, family, and group therapy. When I work with children and teens with attachment issues (RAD), I see them in a family therapy setting. I also offer Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills groups for kids and teens. Contact me to inquire about my upcoming groups!

I am a licensed clinical social worker in Kentucky, and graduated from Florida State University in 1989 with a Masters in Social Work. I have always felt a calling to help people, and over the years settled into working with children, teens, and adults who have experienced any level of trauma. I have level 2 training in EMDR or eye movement desensitization and processing. I’ve been specializing in working with adoptive and foster families for the the past 20 years, and have been learning DBT or dialectical behavior therapy for approximately 6 years. I am intensively trained in DBT from Dr. Linehan’s, Behavioral Tech, training group.
Over the years, I have also learned other treatment modalities (types of therapy) including:
Karyn Purvis’ Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI)
Bruce Perry’s Neurosequential Model (NMT)
Internal Family Systems (IFS)
I have been intentional in learning different types of therapy to help as many kids, teens, adults as possible. No one comes from the same mold! Therefore, it’s up to me to be versatile in meeting the individual where they’re at in the healing process.
Several of the modalities are for specializing in trauma, and the others are to provide a child, teen, or adult with skills for daily life . . . managing emotions, social skills, and tolerating life’s frustrating moments. In the blog, I plan to discuss these therapies and ways you can use the skills for yourself or your child, within your family.
I look forward to talking to you and your family!
