The family and staff would like to thank-you for the outpouring of prayers, love, and support on the loss of our beloved director JC Chambers, who passed away very unexpectedly July 8, 2018.

Stronghold will carry on the mission and serving that began 25 years ago. We appreciate your continued support.

CAROLYN SHORT MSW, CSW-PIP QMHP

 

I would like to introduce myself as a clinical therapist at Stronghold Counseling Services. I grew up in Georgia where I attended school and have gone on to live and provide counseling services in various locations in the US including Minnesota and Oklahoma. I am happy to have made Spearfish, South Dakota my home.

In 1999, I received my BA in Psychology at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. In the spring of 2001, I graduated from the School of Social Work at the University of Georgia with an MSW in Social Work. I became clinically certified two years later in 2003 as a Clinical Social Worker and have had the privilege to gain certification in various trauma recovery techniques including EMDR and TF-CBT over the past several years. I have also received extensive training in Parenting with Love and Logic.

I am capable of providing individual and family therapy services. I have received educational and experiential training to address the following issues: anger management, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress concerns, abuse issues, parent/child and parent/teen conflicts, and grief and loss. I also have experience working with severely and persistently mentally ill adults. I incorporate a grace-based, biblical perspective to my counseling services. With God’s love and truth, hope is available and change is possible.

I am available for public educational workshops, trainings, or seminars on a variety of topics.
