Dr. Carlson is Board Certified in Psychiatry. Trained at Rush Medical Center in Chicago, Dr. Carlson has also worked in residential and treatment settings serving people with depression, anxiety, trauma behavioral issues and eating related issues. While Dr. Carlson provides medication management to her patients, she is also provides comprehensive assessments and psychotherapy (on a limited basis). A unique and much appreciated part of Dr. Carlson’s care is her understanding of the value of a team approach. Whenever possible, and with the express consent of her patients, Dr. Carlson consults with others on the patient’s treatment team. She believes that a coordinated team provides the best possible care.

“My patients deserve to have me take the time that is required to provide them with the most comprehensive care possible. I do not believe in rushing care. My goal is to truly understand what each person needs and to help them develop a plan that will best meet their needs.”
