Personal bio

My name is Dr. Carolyn Trasko, PhD, LCSW, CHTP. I am an Integrative Mental Health Specialist who moved to Delaware in 2018 from my previous home state of Connecticut. I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselor for over 20 years. In 2018, I completed my Doctorate in Mind-Body Medicine with a specialization in Integrative Mental Health. I see myself as a bridge between Western Medicine and other World Medicines (such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine & Tribal Medicine). I have been specializing in the treatment of complex trauma for 30 years and it is through these professional experiences, that I have come to view this work as deeply sacred.
As a doctor of Mind-Body Medicine, I focus on the relationship between emotions, the mind, and physical health. I utilize a holistic, psychodynamic, root-cause perspective focusing on the integration of mind, body, brain, and spirit to help my clients develop personalized, lifestyle plans to restore balance in their lives. I incorporate various cognitive, psychological, energetic, and somatic practices within my work with adult clients. Through this work, clients are able to address unhealthy behaviors in their lives, such as unhealthy relationships, excessive drinking, illicit substance use, or binge eating, and help them recognize how these patterns could be connected to their self-sabotage patterns. By healing from past traumas, many people are able to change their self- limiting beliefs, stop their negative self-talk, and end the vicious shame/blame cycle that perpetuated their illness. In my work, I am constantly inspired by the resilience of the human spirit and how, with guidance and care, the mind and body are able to heal and transform.
