Dr. Shirley Dorough-Carlson is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist specializing in Child and Adolescent Psychology She has over 20 years of experience working with adults, children, adolescents, and their families. She has successfully worked with adults who struggle with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, divorce, and parenting concerns. Her work with children, adolescents, and their families include facilitating families navigating ADHD issues, school noncompliance, divorce, mood disorders, IEP issues, oppositional defiance, and helping young adults transition into the adult stage of life.

The population of children/adolescents she has worked with include both inpatient and outpatient children/adolescents whose diagnoses warranted extended treatment due to developing personality disorders, as well as more brief interventions for oppositionally defiant or less behaviorally destructive children and their families.

In addition to her clinical work, Dr. Carlson taught Developmental Psychology classes to undergraduate level students. Additionally, she has led parent education classes, teacher workshops, and has conducted staffings with parents and staff in the Cicero school district.
