Owner of Burnett Therapy Solutions, LLC
Caroline Burnett, MS, LMFT
Practices in Waukesha and Menomonee Falls
Caroline specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of multiple issues including:
- Behavior management
- Abuse and neglect
- Infant Mental Health
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Foster Care
- Separation Anxiety
We all start developing emotions from the moment we are born. Caroline believes it is vitally important to help parents and caregivers ensure that their infants and children are able to develop their emotions successfully with the assistance from their primary caregivers. She feels that therapy between parents and their children should be a welcoming playful environment designed to help families connect and express themselves without judgment or fear.
Caroline practices from a systemic approach which calls for high levels of involvement from parents, caregivers and siblings within the therapy space. Allowing the system to engage in therapy will create an environment of healing for the whole family, enhance relationships and allow for longer-term maintenance of gains made through therapeutic work. Caroline also believes the largest amount of work done is in the home between parents and children. It is vital that parents are given the tools they need to foster healthy development for their children and Caroline is happy to provide that through parent coaching and modeling.
Caroline specifically has a passion for working with young children 0-10, those diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum, with ADHD and Separation Anxiety. Most sessions will involve work done with both the parents/caregivers as well as the identified patient. This will allow for the relationship between the caregivers and the child to grow creating a safe space which will create a decrease in behaviors. Caroline also has experience with behavior intervention and modification which can be matched with relationship building, emotional fluency and affect regulation to cultivate a calm home environment.
Caroline received her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Edgewood University and is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Caroline trained under two certified infant mental health specialists during her graduate work and has 8 years of experience working with children suffering from abuse and neglect. Caroline has 15 years of experience working with individuals with Autism both through recreational therapy environments and through in-home behavioral health programs. Caroline worked in Child Protective Services towards family reunification, adoption and guardianship, as well as with the Family Court System assisting in issues of Custody and Placement.
Caroline likes to spend her free time at home with her husband, young daughter, loud dog and tiny cat.
