Carolyn Lamparella, Ed.S., L.P.C., Program Director

My educational background includes an Ed.S. in Counseling Psychology from James Madison University and a specialized certification in Infant and Young Child Mental Health from the Washington School of Psychiatry.  I became a Licensed Professional Counselor in 1994 and have grown as a clinician and manager through my work with numerous non-profit organizations and private practices over the years.  In 2002, I returned to the Lehigh Valley and two years later, joined Preferred EAP as a counselor and trainer. During my tenure at Preferred EAP, I have developed and conducted numerous seminars on stress management, emotional eating, managing emotions, understanding adolescents and coping with change in addition to providing counseling services for individuals, families, children and adolescents.  As Clinical Manager at Preferred EAP, I introduced Feedback Informed Treatment, an innovative clinical approach for evaluating and improving the quality of our counseling, coaching and consultation services. More recently, I assumed the role of Program Director and continue with my personal mission of increasing access to high quality EAP services through innovative approachs such as Virtual Counseling and Feedback Informed Treatment.
