Bobbi Carlson, PhD, Psychologist in Pasadena
As a psychologist, I have a tremendous range of clinical experience and treat a diverse population. I assist people as young as their teens and also am well-versed in issues specific to the elderly. I have helped my patients deal with a variety of issues including Anxiety, Bipolar Disorders, Depression, Chemical Dependency, Trauma and Adjustment Disorders. With specializing in co-occuring disorders, I deal with patients that have a complex clinical presentation and often deal with trauma, addiction, legal and family issues simultaneously.
I am extremely experienced in treating patients with significant abuse and trauma histories and specialize in the treatment of PTSD. I also treat patients with various addictions and participate in Alternative Sentencing Treatment Planning to help address legal issues related to addictive behavior.
After 35 years I still love what I do. I incorporate my many years of being an RN, a teacher, a supervisor and my own breadth of personal life experience to more fully understand and support my patients.
