Caroline Znachko is a Master’s Level Intern at The Refuge Center and is currently studying Marriage and Family Therapy at Trevecca Nazarene University. She is a member of the American Counseling Association as well as the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy. She first came to Nashville to pursue her BSN at Belmont University. She has been a nurse for the past three years and has worked in postpartum, nursery, and pediatrics. Through her time spent in the nursing field, although she loved caring for the physical health of her patients, she found that her heart felt called to be in a field that cared for and tended to the spiritual, mental, and emotional health of an individual.
She has a desire to help her clients have greater self-understanding and to grow in courage to engage their wounded and disengaged parts of their heart with the hope that her clients can show up more whole-heartedly to their life and relationships. She believes experiencing life giving, safe, genuine relationships can be a significant place of healing and joy for every individual. She has a passion for working with clients experiencing grief, anxiety, depression, and with families who have love ones struggling with addiction and/or mental and chronic illness.
