Carson loves his work, because he has seen countless individuals emerge from lonely invalidation, chronic irritability, or grief so big that it feels like once it starts, it won’t ever stop (spoiler: it does).


He believes people are resilient and wise beyond measure; many have just taken some injuries that haven’t yet been acknowledged and healed.
