About Dr. Charlotte Tilson

I'm a clinical psychologist in private practice in San Francisco. My practice focuses on the psychological health and well-being of women and children. I serve children and teenagers ages 5-18 and women of all ages. 

These days more and more people are reaching out for counseling - whether for themselves or their children. The word is out - emotions and relationships matter. Mental health should be protected. Actions can be taken to build happiness. You're up next. Contact me to get started. 


I bring 20 + years of experience with efforts to improve people's lives and better understand human behavior. I've contributed to publications, training programs, websites, educational films, public health initiatives and corporate work/life services. 

My career reflects background in two complementary disciplines - clinical psychology and developmental psychology. Clinical psychology is the study of mental health. Developmental psychology is the study of processes of change through the human lifespan. 

Before becoming a clinical psychologist I worked for 10+ years in the field of applied developmental psychology. This included psychology and education content development and training, with a focus on translation of research into practice. I was previously a Project Director at the Center for Child and Family Studies at WestEd.
