About Me

Hi, my name is Rodney W. Carson and I am a Licence Clinical Social Worker. I have work in the field of counseling and social work for the past 25 years. I am very passionate about helping individuals for I received help when I was struggling in life with drug addiction. I have been in recovery and working a recovery program for the past 25 years. For the last decade, I have worked as a Drug and Alcohol and Mental Health Outpatient Therapist for a local community counseling agency. I am co-inventor of a therapeutic medication game/program that has been utilized at different outpatient facilities, hospitals, nursing schools, and prisons throughout the United States and Canada. I enjoy motivating individuals to help themselves in times when they may be at their lowest point in life. It has been very rewarding to see a person get better and their life improve from the help I offer through counseling. At my place of worship, I am on the path to becoming an ordained deacon and have been teaching the adult Sunday School class for the past nine years. One of my favorite scriptures in the bible which helps motivate me is, Philippians: 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthen me". I am excited to have this opportunity to be of help to you.

Written by K.I. on May 14, 2021 after counseling with Rodney for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I was in a pretty bad place when Rodney and I first began talking. Now, you can quite literally see the growth in how I act, and I can tell talking with him has made a big difference in how I think about things. He is overly supportive and not only validates how I am feeling, but challenges me to think about it from a bigger point of view. I am so glad we got matched together, he has helped me so much!

Written by G.I. on Apr 15, 2020 after counseling with Rodney for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, and coping with life changes

Rodney is a very caring, extremely intelligent practitioner. He is new to me, but I am beginning to realize that he seriously listens to what I have to say and then he "reads between the lines" and tells me what hears me saying. I LOVE THIS! He asks smart, soul-searching questions and is respectful of my answers. He is most thorough when it comes to checking in on me--this is a far better experience than I had anticipated!

What I love most is that Rodney never makes me feel like my thoughts/opinions/concerns are invalid. He encourages me to talk/think it out loud and change my perspective to see my problem in a positive way. He’s awesome and I’m just really fortunate to have been paired with him!
