Carole Light, PhD

I have been in independent practice for 46 years, 30 in Atlanta, 16 in the mountains of North Carolina. I work with depression, anxiety, and issues in relationships.

My practice has focused on helping people identify and change beliefs and assumptions about themselves and others that they may find limiting or inaccurate in the present time.
