Dr. Carpenter is an excellent psychologist. He uses a humanist approach, rather than either a cognitive or analytic one. His client questionnaire which I filled out prior to undertaking therapy, gave me insights into some of the issues I would be confronting during my sessions. I have resolved several issues with Dr. Carpenter's assistance. I find Dr. Carpenter an attentive and insightful guide. I know no other professional relationship in which mutual trust and confidence is as important as in the field of therapist/client. I have learned that rapport is a key ingredient to psychological change and no one can be an excellent psychologist for all. If one cannot "click" with a new mental health professional early on he or she ought to find at different therapist. Just because I think poorly of Dr. X and highly of Dr. Carpenter it does not mean that you should also. This having been said I highly recommend anyone seeking assistance in the mental health field to see Dr. Carpenter and decide if you agree with my five star rating.
