Personal Biography:

Dr. Carlos A. González is a native of Puerto Rico and a transplanted New Yorker. He graduated from Cornell University Medical College and completed a residency at St. Vincent’s Hospital, followed by a fellowship in child and adolescent psychiatry at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York.

He has been in CT since 1989, initially as an assistant professor of psychiatry at Yale and director of the Connecticut Mental Health Center’s Hispanic Clinic. He subsequently worked extensively as chief of the psychiatric crisis service at Griffin Hospital.

Dr. Gonzalez believes firmly that the mental health of children and adolescents is the primary determinant of their well-being as adults. His focus is the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents, and he has wide experience in school consultation, foster care, adoption, and the impact of culture and family on the emotional status of children. He is the author of two chapters on cross-cultural psychiatry, and has been active as a cultural advisor to the DSM. He is adept in the medical management of psychiatric disorders in children, but does not believe that medication can be effective in the absence of a holistic approach that may include individual and family therapy, as well as educational interventions.

Dr.Gonzalez is the medical director at the Community Child Guidance Clinic in Manchester, CT.

Dr. Gonzalez is bi-cultural and fluent in Spanish.
