Carol Maker LCSW

INNER COURAGE offers services to facilitate extraordinary personal change, rebuild lives and protect future generations.

I work with individuals and couples whose lives have been compromised by stress, loss, conflict or trauma. As a result they are suffering from emotional triggers, poor boundaries, compulsive behaviors and problems with healthy relationships. My office is in the Alberta Street Arts District of Portland, Oregon.

Hi, I’m Carol, the creator of INNER COURAGE ® Therapy, an artful and dynamic blend of EFTEMDRCBT, compassion, (sometimes irreverent) humor and insight. INNER COURAGE Therapy is based on my training as a therapist, my continued training in innovative techniques, and my personal journey. My own history is what motivates me to help people and be empathic and straightforward about their sensitive topics.

I am committed to socially responsible therapy since the impact of inner conflict is widespread. People who feel purposeful in life have direct impact on the success of the next generation and on global health. Any person who is able to resolve and transform grief into wisdom is much more likely to seek peaceful justice, spread kindness and act consciously. It is both courageous and socially responsible to heal yourself.

Motivating change is my specialty. When you hire me, you can be certain that you are in a competent, confidential and safe environment. It’s a tenuous balance to heal both the victim and perpetrator parts of the psyche. I am results-oriented, base my work on both research and the latest innovations in motivating dynamic change from within. The inclusion of EMDR therapy in the INNER COURAGE model allows me to get even deeper into these shadow issues.

It is my firm belief that moving towards happiness, peace of mind, and more fulfilling relationships is a journey, not a destination, so the length of time you stay in therapy will vary based on your unique needs. Perhaps you are just starting the journey, or you are well on your way and need a boost. Rest assured, if the “fit” is right, we will work together to find which approach and tools work for you and your budget. Together we can pinpoint exactly what’s not working in your life and take the most effective steps towards transformation.

I have helped hundreds of people and I can help you, too.
