A Little More about Priscilla Carlsgaard
I believe in a collaborative approach to working with couples and individuals. Together we will identify and work towards achieving goals and create new ways to work through problems. My goal is to help you focus on your strengths and what works.
Couples’ relationship health is my specialty. Using the Gottman Method, I work with couples to resolve conflict and build their relationship through improved communication. With training in PREPARE/ENRICH premarital counseling, I can also offer a structural plan to harness strengths and address potential growth areas.
My work centers on helping you become the Better You. With training in DBT, Trauma-Focused CBT, and utilizing skills that focus on strengths, together, we can enhance your ability to manage stress and make changes where necessary. Seeking help takes courage. If you’re in need, feel free to call with questions or to schedule an initial consultation.
