Caroline Artley, LCSW-C is among the newest faces on Proventherapy.com, a site that provides a virtual office for individuals to meet professional clinicians to work out their problems.
Press Release: WHITE MARSH, Md. – Feb. 2, 2016 – PRLog — Caroline attended a Christian college to learn how to help people from a faith perspective, then she moved on to public graduate school for in-depth, rigorous instruction on diagnostic formulation and clinical intervention. She credits her undergraduate work with helping her to appreciate the intrinsic value of all people.
Caroline has worked with individuals aged 3-101, as well as the parents, siblings, adult children, and other caregivers involved. As a Therapist in the public mental health system for almost 10 years, she has treated a wide variety of issues ranging from mild anxiety and low self-esteem, to severe depression, unresolved trauma, grief/loss, and personality disorders. Additionally, as a Medical Social Worker for four years, she has counseled adult children of medically fragile patients through maintaining healthy family relationships and pre-grief. Working in such dynamic fields, she has been exposed to diversity of populations with multifaceted needs. Such exposure reminds her there can be many layers to one problem, requiring a lot of hard work and partnering with the client to achieve his/her goals. So, she opens up her virtual clinic at https://www.proventherapy.com to extend that healing touch through highly secured live and email channels.
Sessions with Caroline employ cognitive-behavioral, narrative, solution-focused, and family systems theories. But that is not all. She believes the relationship forged between the client and clinician is of paramount importance in the therapeutic process. She believes every person is different, every problem is different, and so the pathway to recovery must adapt to meet the person where they are.
“I incorporate pauses in our sessions from time to time, to check in with how the client feels about his/her progress. My clients’ problems often did not arise overnight, and they will not likely resolve so quickly either. At times this can feel discouraging to clients who simply want to feel better and move on with their lives. I like to continually ‘leave the door open’ for clients to be honest about the process of therapy.”

Philosophical Counselor Moving Practice to Online Therapy
Press Release: A practical ethics professor, Certified Counselor and Fellow of the American Association of Philosophical Practitioners with 20 years of academic teaching and research experience on three continents, Aleksandar Fatić is now part of ProvenTherapy.
Prof. Fatić specialises in life coaching for a variety of life goals, using the time-proven methodologies of practical philosophy. His main interest at the moment is the use of Epicurean ethics for philosophical counseling and life coaching. He has published 8 academic books in the various professional applications of ethics and over 100 academic papers in journals and edited books worldwide.
Another approach that Aleksandar is currently working on is the application of Confucian practical ethics to life coaching. He is currently working on a major research paper on this topic that will be available online by the end of 2013.
Aleksandar’s basic approach to working with clients is conceptualization. The method is based on the idea, advanced throughout the tradition of practical philosophy, that our reactions to events are a result of our concepts and understanding of what happens to us, and so is our ability to change our behavior and emotions.
Once we conceptualize, or re-conceptualize, our life situation, the next step is improvement, which is based on personal enhancement. Enhancement means practice and self-development by treating problems as opportunities to develop skills that can later be used across the board of other issues one comes across. Modern bioethics and other fields of practical ethics are very much focused on the concept of enhancement.
The use of conceptualization and self-enhancement allow a dramatic change of the landscape of the issues we face. Once the problems are interpreted in a different way from the one that gave rise to emotional difficulties, coaching typically takes as its main task the development of skills and focus on oneself, rather than on others: instead of judging others or feeling devastated by a loss, treachery or a lie, or by lack of love or or opportunity, one is able to focus on how to develop the quality of oneself as a person. People who use this approach start regular exercise, develop healthy eating habits, new interests, re-organize their time so as to get enough sleep, reduce their workload and manage their time and goals much more effectively. In turn, by shifting the focus from the external to the internal, greater self-appreciation arises, because it is encouraged by working on oneself. Finally, apart from allowing the achievement of better professional and personal results, the person undergoing coaching through conceptualization and enhancement solves many of the emotional and mood issues that may have their cause in the inadequacies of outlook at the problems and of treatment of oneself.
Because of his teaching and research, Aleksandar has limited time for working with clients, and he has now moved his practice entirely online, offering service through https://www.proventherapy.com.
