About Teri Carlson, M.D.
I have been a practicing psychiatrist since 2002. Following completion of my child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at UCLA, I was an attending psychiatrist at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Beverly Hills, where I was the Medical Director of the Pediatric Mood and Anxiety Disorders Clinic, the medical director of the ADHD clinic, and the pediatric Consult/Liaison Service director. I then went on to thrive in an 8-year private practice in the Westwood/Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles, serving patients with a diverse range of diagnoses and challenges. During my time in Los Angeles, I served as the consulting psychiatrist for many eating disorder residential treatment centers and partial hospitalization programs.
Upon moving to the Boulder area in 2013, I became the Unit Director of Inpatient Adolescent Services at Centennial Peaks Hospital, a position which I cherished for its ability to intervene with adolescents at a critical period in their lives. However, I missed seeing a wide range of ages in my work, and missed the long-term relationships formed in outpatient practice. Thus, I moved back into private practice in January 2017.
I live in the Boulder area and have two school-aged daughters. I regularly volunteer at their schools and am active in the community. I enjoy hiking, running, and spending time with my children.
