Bek Carlson

Provisional Psychologist

"Most big transformations come about from the hundreds of tiny, almost imperceptible, steps we take along the way" - Lori Gottlieb

Therapy with Bek

In my practice, my priority is fostering a nurturing and empathetic environment where clients feel comfortable sharing their experiences and challenges. I use a collaborative approach to working alongside my clients to navigate their difficulties, identify strengths, build resilience, and develop practical strategies for positive change. I use evidence-based practices and ensure my work is grounded in sound research to promote positive client outcomes.

While I work across the lifespan, I have a particular interest in the way a child’s formative years impact their later development and experiences beyond childhood. As such, I am passionate about working with children and young people during these impressionable years. In my approach to working with children and young people, I prefer to have family involved in therapy where appropriate. Research indicates that therapy for children is typically more effective when there is family involvement and a rallying support system continuing outside of the therapy room. I also communicate with educators and teachers where appropriate to promote the best outcomes for school aged clients.

In all my work, I see it is an incredible a privilege to walk alongside individuals as they share their journey with me.
