Carina Gustafsson


About Me

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist. I am trained in trauma focused therapy to help those who have experienced trauma in their lives and may have a diagnosis of PTSD. I have worked in a residential substance abuse treatment center as well as with inmates in jail. I have also worked with individual therapy and couples therapy. My approach is to meet the client where he or she is, meaning what the needs are at the moment without judgement or preconceived ideas. I use an eclectric approach to fit the needs of the client since everyone have different needs and responds to different treatment modalities.

Written by B.A. on Sep 13, 2020 after counseling with Carina for 4 months on issues concerning relationship

Carina has been and still being an excellent counselor to work with. Very understanding, communicative, great at listening, addressing any concerns, and suggeesting/providing a variety of tools and resources. I have certainly learned a lot from Carina in the past few months and I’m still learning. Thank you Carina!
