Christine Carpenter, Psy.D.
Dr. Carpenter completed her degree in Clinical Psychology with a minor in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from the Illinois School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. Dr. Carpenter's work is founded in the relational model of psychodynamic psychotherapy which allows her use the therapy relationship itself as a major instrument of change. She specializes in long-term, insight-oriented treatment of children, adolescents and adults dealing with a wide range of issues. Dr. Carpenter believes that maladaptive relational patterns developed early in life can interfere with one?s sense of personal well-being, ability to connect with others and fulfillment in life. These patterns can lead to and maintain clinical symptoms such as depression, disordered eating, anxiety or other behavioral difficulties. In her view, therapy offers a new experience of relationships that allows change and healing to occur in an accepting and nurturing context. Dr. Carpenter integrates creativity with the healing process through the use of art, music and poetry therapies for individuals who feel verbal expression is not sufficient to fully communicate their experience. Though she works with men and women of all ages and presenting problems, her areas of expertise include the treatment of adolescents and their families and women struggling with such gender-related issues as low self-worth, distress due to gender role conflict and relationship disharmony.
