Professional statement

Timothy Carlone is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in East Greenwich, RI specializing in anxiety, high sensitivity, emotion regulation, depression, trauma, and life transitions.

Timothy is particularly passionate about working with highly sensitive or introverted individuals experiencing generalized anxiety, social anxiety, and panic attacks. His practice focuses on helping clients understand the logical and emotional aspects of their anxiety, recognizing the physical connection that accompanies the anxiety, and challenging these negative thoughts. He helps clients build individualized coping mechanisms that allow them to move beyond their anxieties and live happier, more fulfilling lives.

Timothy works with teenagers, young adults, college students, adults, couples, parents, and seniors. He particularly enjoys supporting young adults as they navigate the intricacies of adulthood, build skills, and develop self-confidence. He also helps clients with traumatic experiences develop coping skills, learn to discharge negative energy before it becomes overwhelming, and feel self-empowered and in control of their emotions

Timothy draws from evidence-based treatments and tailors his approach to each client’s needs. For clients with anxiety, he incorporates Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Rogerian therapy, and bioenergetic therapy.

Message to clients

"The most important thing when searching for a counselor is finding someone with whom you feel comfortable enough to open up and tell the whole truth. I focus on establishing a relationship with clients which feel natural and easy in order to do the difficult work of making changes in our lives. I hope meeting with me helps you to feel hopeful about doing the work you need to do in your life. I want you to find great help and if I am not the right counselor for you I will help you find someone who meets your needs."


Treatment approaches

Bioenergetic Therapy The goal of bioenergetic therapy is to study the connection between the body and mind. By identifying muscle patterns that regularly occur during times of conflict, the therapist and client work together to break down these automatic defenses and allow repressed emotions to emerge.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)In cognitive behavioral therapy, you work with a therapist in a structured way, attending a limited number of sessions. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way. (learn more)
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive behavioral treatment that often used to treat disorders such as substance dependence, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), eating disorders, and particularly chronic borderline personality disorder. It teaches skills such as mindfulness, pain tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, and emotional regulation. (learn more)
Existential Therapy Existential therapy is a therapy approach that both embraces human potential and recognizes human limitation. The breadth of existential theory falls into four major themes, which it sees as the root of most psychological problems: 1) Death, 2) Freedom (& Responsibility), 3) Isolation, and 4) Meaninglessness. (learn more)
Family SystemsFamily systems theory views the family as an emotional unit and uses systems thinking to describe the complex interactions in the unit. Family system therapy may be used to address conflict stemming from the family unit by working on a client's ability to maintain individuality while maintaining emotional contact with the group. (learn more)
Mindfulness PracticesMindfulness practices include but are not limited to developing awareness, attention, and remembering. In mindfulness-informed therapy, clients develop tools to become aware of what is occurring within and around them, so they can begin to untangle from mental preoccupations and difficult emotions. Self-acceptance and compassion are also core elements of mindfulness-informed therapy. (learn more)
Rogerian Therapy Rogerian therapy is based in the belief that each individual has the capacity and resources to fulfill his or her own potential. The goal is to help each individual uncover this capacity and resources toward growth and fulfillment. (learn more)
Supportive TherapySupportive psychotherapy is used primarily to reinforce a patient’s ability to cope with stressors by giving clients the opportunity to express their feelings and thoughts about the issues. Clinicians help patients learn how to move forward and make decisions or changes that may be necessary to adapt, either to an acute change, such as the loss of a loved one or severe disappointment, or to a chronic situation, such as an ongoing illness.
