I treat psychological difficulties with a compassionate, yet results-oriented approach. When someone suffers from a medical disorder, a comprehensive assessment of the problem is required in order to obtain an accurate diagnosis. If the diagnosis is incorrect, treatment will repeatedly fail. As a diagnostician, my focus is to treat people, many of whom had been non-responsive to previous psychological / medical treatment, in this same way. Only with a correct diagnosis will treatment be effective. Once determined, goals discussed, a treatment plan in place, the therapy begins. With time and work, individuals grow to experience enhanced emotional health along with interpersonal and professional contentment.

Mediation in Legal Disputes, Executive (Life) Coaching, Forensics, Mood & Anxiety disorders; Couples & Relationship Conflicts; Trauma & Loss and with Adolescents. I have expertise working with all types of Abuse victims (Sexual Harassment / Clergy); Survivors who have lost loved ones due to Suicide; Attachment / Intimacy difficulties; Post-Traumatic Stress and Faith-Based struggles.

My prior career was spent working in Fortune 50 corporations where achieving measurable results was essential. As a Psychologist, I strive to do the same. Having taught at 3 universities, I educate people to become more conscious and to heal. Upon leaving my office one has greater knowledge, insight, hope and clarity than previously experienced.

Carlson Consulting Clinic/ Dr. Carol Carlson's Groups

Suicide Survivors

This group is for adults, parents, adult children, or individuals who have lost a family member or loved one to suicide. Its focus is to provide a foundational path towards healing from this complex grief reaction. As a result of this particular loss, guilt, shame, rejection, abandonment, emotional / relational and a trauma reaction pattern evolves. The group combines psychological education, grief work and a plan for long-term healing. Without moving into the pain resulting from death by suicide, relationships suffer & the emotional anguish intensifies. For immediate grief reactions, individual therapy is recommended. Effective group therapy requires an initial passage of time.
