Christine Carpenter, PsyD, Psychologist in Chicago
With warmth, sensitivity and without judgment, I work hard to understand your unique experience. Together we can find a path to well-being and fulfillment that fits for you. I can help you find more immediate relief from symptoms that get in your way day-to-day while exploring deeper issues that may have led to your current situation. Into the traditional "talk therapy" model, I incorporate body-centered work to help you achieve deeper, experiential change that is lasting and fully integrated into your sense of self.
I specialize in the treatment of problems that stem from relational trauma and event trauma. For the past 18 years, I have worked extensively with eating disorders, relational conflict and dissatisfaction, mood and anxiety disorders, later-stage addiction recovery, self-injury, poor self-esteem, emotional dysregulation, and identity issues.
It is a great honor and tremendous responsibility to be invited along on such a personal journey. I am deeply invested in joining with you to create a therapy experience that offers safety, respect and nurturance while gently challenging fixed and ineffective patterns. You don't have to do this alone.

Christine Carpenter's Groups

Interpersonal Therapy Group for Men and Women

So often our interactions with others are guided by fears, beliefs or self-perceptions that may be inaccurate or unrelated to the current circumstance. This prevents us from being truly authentic in relationships and ultimately decreases satisfaction in life. Group therapy is an ideal setting to challenge these ingrained patterns as it offers the safe, nonjudgmental atmosphere of the therapeutic setting, while broadening the scope of relational experience. Through discussion and experiential processes, we explore each client's interpersonal dynamics as they manifest in relationships both inside and outside of the group.

More about this group

Dating Boot Camp

Dating Boot Camp is NOT a lecture series about how to date. It is a 5-week experiential workshop that offers an in-depth look at personal factors that contribute to or detract from dating success. Along with a peer group of male and female fellow-daters, you will discover: How historical experience may be hampering your efforts, how others perceive and experience you, what you need to know about yourself to know who is a good “fit” for you, how to attract the right people, how to stay true to who you are and still get the guy/girl.
