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 also has worked extensively with children (0-18 years old) and their families. 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 electric approach to fit the needs of the client since everyone have different needs and responds to different treatment modalities.

She’s incredibly understanding, sweet, helpful and constructive.

I am so happy that Carina G. was matched with my daughter. This was the exactly the outlet my 16 y/o needed to vent and problem solve without having any reservations about being in a setting that she could not completely open up in. When we have our weekly video session with Carina, we always end with so much hope and practical exercises to work on. Thank you Carina for everything!!!!
