Carolynn Aristone, MSW, LCSW, CST, The Center for Intimate Relationships, LLC
“The Wisdom of Your Heart: Transform Your Life through Clarity, Consciousness, Courage and Choice”
Carolynn has been described as “compassionate, insightful, consummately trustworthy, calming”. As an Intimacy Breakthrough Specialist, Carolynn helps couples breakthrough the barriers that keep them from achieving their highest relationship potential.
It all started with her own, personal journey. Two years after meeting the love of her life, Carolynn and her husband began to struggle in their sex life.
Unbeknownst to them, Carolynn developed a sexual dysfunction that remained untreated, ignored and dismissed by the medical community for 10 years.
This experience set her and her spouse on a journey they never imagined they would travel. Their love was tested by 10 years of intimacy confusion, loneliness, isolation, shame, rejection and hopelessness.
During this time, she and her spouse had to learn how to strengthen their intimate connection when sex was not working. They got first hand experience on what it takes to create a strong, meaningful, intimate life – emotionally, physically and sexually.
Their intimacy crisis led them toward a healthy, satisfying sex life and an unbreakable emotional connection. They have two beautiful children, a busy family life and most importantly, unparalleled love for each other.
Carolynn now pays her intimacy success forward, bringing all of her education, knowledge and personal and professional experience to her clients. She continuously receives clinical training from researchers and thought-leaders in the field of relationships, marriage and sex therapy.
In addition, Carolynn strives to create innovative services to meet the needs of all couples, from DIY classes to full immersion programs. She supervises her staff members through all aspects of client care ensuring the highest levels of compassion, professionalism and clinical integrity.
Carolynn and her team help couples tap into the heart and soul of intimacy. Together, they help lay the groundwork for couples to create Exceptional Relationships.
Carolynn holds a Masters Degree in Social Work from Rutgers University, NJ Clinical Licensure in Social Work, Certification from The Gestalt Therapy Institute of Philadelphia, Clinical Certification in Sex Therapy from the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) and Certification in Clinical Social Work Supervision from the National Association of Social Workers. Carolynn is also an expert author for GoodTherapy.org.
