Carol Garson has over 25 years of experience in mental health care. She received her Master’s Degree from York University and worked as a psychometrist in a general hospital and at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Clinic. She went on to register as a Psychological Associate in Clinical Psychology in 2007, and as a Psychologist in 2016. Since earning the right to practice autonomously, she has combined private practice with public education and has worked in primary care.
She has co-authored several publications on depression and insomnia and presented at peer reviewed conferences. She describes herself as a client-centered cognitive therapist, combining aspects of both approaches.
She has worked with a broad cross-section of individuals using a trauma-informed approach. Her practice has focused on helping individuals with recurrent depression and/or anxiety, and difficulty in managing behaviour change.
With a collaborative style and ongoing involvement in community work, she brings a unique perspective to her work.
She tries to balance work with regular exercise and pursuing interests in gardening and music.
