I have been a patient of Dr. Carpenters for several years, seeing him for issues related to family and work. I have been impressed at how well he listens and that he remembers things I shared years earlier in our sessions. I know my life is better not just for me but for other family members who he has also met with. I am a social worker and I have recommended him to several friends.

I have been Dr. Carpenter’s patient for a few years. He helped me through a time of grief and supported me as I rebuilt my life. With his help we identified areas that were holding me back and not allowing me to move forward. He used talk therapy and often suggested resources and techniques to help me in addition to our meetings. He is compassionate, practical and knowledgeable in many areas of psychology, and keeps current with what is happening in mental health. I highly recommend him.
