Caroline Novack Greenwood values dialogue as a healing tool. As the founder of
True Mind + Body, PLLC
and inMotion Wellness, PLLC, Caroline has worked tirelessly to help improve the lives of hundreds of clients over the last decade. What separates Caroline from other therapists is the integration of yoga and fitness therapy into her social work.
In addition to her two therapy practices, Caroline has provided continued support to JUF, Bail Project, ADL, and LEARN Benefit Concert for Music Education. Although her work reaches above and beyond the Jewish community, Caroline got her start in clinical social work as an intern with the JUF Lewis Summer Intern Program.

ON THE SIDE:
Amateur ceramist for hobby; Starting a second business, inMotion Wellness, PLLC. At inMotion, therapy sessions take place in private sport courts and movement rooms, so our clients get all the benefits of traditional talk therapy + the added scientific benefits of movement.
SOMETHING MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT ME:
I’m obsessed with ceramics, which I recently picked up at my local park district as an outlet from pandemic stress at home and compassion fatigue at work.
WHAT IS YOUR PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT IN THE LAST 10 YEARS:
My proudest accomplishments are my three beautiful children ages 3.5 (twins) and 6. (works in progress!) My second proudest accomplishment was opening a new business the same month as welcoming my first child. I must admit I still feel a surge of pride when I look back at photos of feeding my newborn while creating our website!
YOUR BEST PIECE OF ADVICE:
Don't be closed off to activities or opportunities that you think you're "not good at." Doing so stifles creativity and all possibilities. When I turned towards several artistic outlets during the pandemic (drawing, painting, jewelry making and pottery!), I realized I never even gave myself a chance to find out that I am artistic! Part of my narrative was that I was not good at art, and so I wasn't! More importantly, I did not know how much I would enjoy it and grow from it if I gave it a shot...
