• Dr. Brian Carl, Ph.D.

  • Professional

    My clinical experience began when I was an undergraduate student working in a residential treatment home. At this location l gained experience working with individuals with mild to severe developmental disorders, including autism.

    I was fortunate to received my doctoral training at Brigham Young University where I received generalist training with a wide variety of issues including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, couples/relationship concerns, ADHD, OCD, personality disorders, life transition concerns, multi-cultural issues, sexual concerns, religious/spiritual concerns, and career counseling.

    During my doctoral training I had the opportunity to work in a number of settings, including the counseling centers at BYU Provo and Hawaii, a stress management lab, a disability center working with learning disorders and ADHD, an employment service agency doing career counseling, and in private practice. The capstone of my training was a full-time 12-month internship at the University of Hawaii, where I received specialized training in multi-cultural issues, crisis counseling, and life transitions concerns.

    Personal

    I grew up in Big Bear, California, surrounded by more trees than people. I started rock climbing and hiking when I was young, and now I spend most of my free time outdoors. When I'm not in my office, you can find me in the mountains backpacking, snowshoeing, or climbing. If there's an ocean nearby, I'll be surfing or scuba diving. Yoga, gardening, and cooking keep me occupied when I'm not in the mountains or at the beach. I try to incorporate everything I've learned—both inside and outside the classroom—into my approach with each client.
