Dr. Carol Carpenter


About me

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the state of Ohio. I have over 23 years of experience working with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship concerns, parenting concerns, career counseling, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and ODD. I also have extensive experience in grief and working with clients who are undergoing life adjustments from medical diagnoses. My educational history includes a Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education, a Master of Arts in Counseling, and a Doctor of Philosophy in Human Services with a focus on Counseling Studies.

I use an integrated approach to counseling, focusing on the whole person. I pull from a wide array of theories depending upon the unique needs of each individual, couple, or family. I believe the therapeutic alliance is essential. I have found this combination to be successful in helping individuals achieve their desired level of functioning.

I am humbled and honored to be in this field. It is my passion!

I look forward to working with you,

Dr. Carpenter is absolutely amazing! I love that I can vent, share ideas, and work through my feelings with no judgment. I have difficulty opening up to people, but I don't feel that way with Dr. Carpenter.

Work with me!
