What some of my Clients have said

Dr. Carlson gives me hope, enabling me to improve my life even with physical, mental, and emotional challenges that at one time seemed insurmountable. As a woman, I resisted going to a male psychologist because I thought I’d feel uncomfortable. I was wrong. Dr. Carlson is easy to respect and trust. He is skilled at creating an environment of compassion and emotional safety. Dr. Carlson is talented, dedicated and effective in his practice. His diverse professional experience gives me confidence in recommending him to others.


Your support and guidance awakened us to the need is to create new and healthier habits for our relationship instead of trying to make old habits work. We both felt that you really cared about us and our success as a couple. That caring has been a real safety net for us as we tried new things in our relationship.
