About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and Consultant (MA in Counseling Psychology from Lesley University) with 30 years experience.

Throughout my career I have worked in a number of mental health clinics including Community Healthlink, North Suffolk Mental Health Association and Arbour Counseling Services, helping families, children, adolescents, and adults with a wide variety of emotional and behavioral issues.

I have also provided counseling in schools pre-K to 8th grade, hospitals and community crisis programs. Through the Teacher Education Institute I taught three-credit graduate courses on “Resolving Conflicts in Schools and Classrooms.”

I am a member of MaMHCA (Massachusetts Mental Health Counselors Association) and LANES (League for the Advancement of New England Storytelling).

I enjoy being with my family and friends, creating mixed-media art, dancing, swimming, gardening and reading.

“Our son had become very defiant and oppositional. We didn’t know how to deal with him anymore, what was causing him to be like that, and how to help him. This was hard on him, but also on everyone in our family. With family therapy he has made great progress by building skills to handle his emotions and feelings. We, as parents, have understood why he was acting like that, developed strategies to help him (and ourselves), and have learned what in our own behaviors could help him or trigger him. I would recommend Carol Wintle to anyone having difficulty understanding their child.” parent of a 5 year old
