My Practice

Jim CarpenterI am: a clinical psychologist with over 80,000 hours of experience in psychotherapy..

My Experience: is with a broad range of clients, conducted in a wide array of clinical settings. For more information about my credentials and experience, go HERE.

Therapists are allowed into the deepest, most private chambers of a person's life.  I am astonished recurrently by this, and feel more honored than I can express..  Speaking for myself, I could not have found more rewarding and valuable work.  I treasure the opportunity for deep contact and learning and usefulness that it provides. I do my best to be equal to the needs that are revealed to me in the therapeutic room.

Address:  727 Eastowne Drive, Suite 300B, Chapel Hill, NC  27514.  My office is a stone’s throw from the intersection of US 15-501 and Interstate 40, right at the boundary line between Durham and Chapel Hill.  It is a convenient drive not only from Chapel Hill and Durham, but also from Raleigh, Cary, Hillsborough, Greensboro and other nearby communities.  I share my office suite with two excellent psychiatrists, Dr. Lynn Ikenberry and Dr. George Stephens.

I also have an office in my home which I use two days a week.  This is located in the country between Chapel Hill and Hillsborough, NC, on a beautiful, quiet hilltop.  If this location is the best one for a client, I will pass on information about how to get there.

Assessments of Work with Me from Clients.

Types of Referrals Accepted:  I accept referrals for work with adults, adolescents, couples and families.  I also conduct group psychotherapy.  I have experience in helping with a very broad range of issues, with many different sorts of people and situations.  The figure of 80,000-plus hours of conducting psychotherapy sessions that I quote above surprised me, but double-checking my arithmetic convinced me that it is conservative and correct.  So I am experienced.  I draw upon my broad experience with different approaches to psychotherapy and different flavors of human problems and try to tailor for each client and each situation the most fitting approach that I can imagine.
