Emily Carlson, LMHC


Hello! You’ve made it. You’ve taken the first step to start or restart therapy and you should feel proud to have made it this far. As your therapist I will provide you with a safe space to express yourself, including the good, the bad, and everything in between. I want you to know that you are not alone. I will be an integral part of your support system while we navigate your path to self-fulfillment. I emphasize starting with achieving small goals that result in long term stability. I believe it is important to acknowledge that change takes time. As we work towards your goals, we will respect a realistic timeline, define and create a safe space and explore what supports we have in place and where we may need more. By working together, using honest and clear communication, I believe we can develop an individualized definition of well-being.

As a mental health counselor, I strive to apply psychological theories and techniques in a digestible and realistic way to each person that I partner with. Everyone brings with them their own history, challenges and desired outcomes that deserve an individualized approach. I have a wealth of important experience helping adults, youth and couples both at Maria Droste and as an emergency mental health crisis counselor in the Greater Boston Area. I am looking forward to learning how my clinical expertise can best serve you.
