Carter Hasbrook, AMFT
Pasadena Assistant Program Director
Carter Hasbrook graduated magna cum laude from Rollins College with a B.A. in both Psychology and Philosophy. He then went on to receive two M.A. degrees in Buddhist Psychology and Clinical Psychology from University of the West and is on track to obtain his license as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT). Carter’s primary passion, education, and clinical training have focused heavily on mindfulness-based approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). He is also deeply invested in adapting such interventions to acute mental illness; in addition to specifically addressing the negative symptoms associated with psychotic spectrum disorders through innovative interpersonal skills development and meaning-making through recovery-oriented care. Carter completed his first clinical practicum at Long Beach Family Services and is currently gaining hours towards licensure at PCH. Carter has loved being part of the PCH team and the heartfelt standard of care they provide. He has been onboard since the launch of PCH Pasadena and recently got promoted to Assistant Program Director—a title and responsibility he is grateful to wear, as he is now able to address the needs of both clients and their families, providing the most comprehensive treatment course and care.
