Carly is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Certified Care Manager (CMC) who has been privileged to work in the field of aging for a decade and a half. She holds a Masters in Social Work (MSW) from the University of Maryland-Baltimore (2004) and a Bachelors in English from the University of Missouri-Columbia.
She coordinated the research center of the late Gene D. Cohen MD PhD, The George Washington University Center on Aging, Health, and Humanities (cahh.gwu.edu), which was where she first studied creativity and aging, and became wholly enamored of the capacities and potentials of aging people (which we all are).
She helps people awaken their potential, express the truth, solve difficult problems, integrate change and loss, and live in the fullness of their being.
During her childhood Carly's dad was a county nursing home administrator, and she spent her preschool years at the home befriending the residents. She is also presently a parent, child, partner, musician, maker, dancer, graduate school instructor, and insatiable student in the school of life.
