Carolyn Sanchez Hulstrand is a Licensed Graduate Social Worker currently working under the supervision of Jennifer Joseph, PsyD, LP. Carolyn identifies as biracial and bilingual, with roots in Mexico and the United States; she speaks Spanish and English fluently. Carolyn’s interest in mental health initiated during her time working in schools as a special education paraprofessional, closely supporting students and their families with their social and emotional needs.
Carolyn received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Hamline University and completed her graduate degree in 2020 through the University of Minnesota. Carolyn has experience with clients from early childhood to young adulthood struggling with problems stemming from trauma, mood disorders and neurological disorders. Carolyn takes a systems approach to treatment, meaning that she sees individuals as part of larger systems that affect their mental health and wellbeing. Carolyn believes that recovery is non-linear and looks different for each individual. Her method includes collaborating with clients to best achieve their recovery vision. Carolyn draws from a wide range of evidence-based interventions, including dialectical behavioral therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. In her work with parents, Carolyn draws from the Circle of Security program and the Collaborative Problem Solving treatment model by Dr. Ross Greene.
Carolyn sees clients at the Natalis University location.
