For 4 years Dr. Mills sailed solo around the world on her 40’ sailboat Tioga III. During a violent storm at sea her engine exploded mid-ocean, leaving her unconscious and wounded floating in her cabin in 250 gallons of diesel fuel. She was in a coma for three and a half days. After rescuing herself she had to move to the clean air of the South Pacific to recover. She spent 10 years in New Zealand’s Bay of Islands.

Dr. Carolyn Mills earned her PhD in Clinical and Organizational Psychology from the University of Michigan. A Michigan native, Dr. Mills has been a professor of psychology, management, business, and communication. She taught at several universities and has been in practice with clients all over the world and in remote locations, both in-person and via Skype.

Dr. Mills has returned to the United States, and her career has been given new energy by her personal crisis. Dr. Mills brings this inspired dedication to her work daily. She works to help each client, in therapy, overcome his or her own unique struggle.
