BETH CARPENTER

Beth is a Marriage and Family Therapist Supervisor and Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor with a Master’s in Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from the Family Institute at Northwestern University in Illinois. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Richmond. She is also a
Certified Eating Disorder Specialist (CEDS). Beth was born and raised in Texas, but has lived in many different places in the U.S.

Beth gained her experience from a variety of professional environments—each of which have prepared her to be a compassionate and well-rounded therapist. Before entering private practice, Beth worked as a Clinical Therapist at the Center for Pediatric Eating Disorders at Children’s Medical Center. During her tenure, she worked closely with individual patients as well as family members to help strengthen relationships and enhance support for treatment and recovery. Beth has worked in several nonprofit and community clinic settings including: Genesis Women’s Shelter, where she treated women and children suffering from traumatic
experiences as well as those in crisis, The Family Studies Center at UT Southwestern, where she provided individual, couple, and family therapy to a variety of clients, and an ALS clinic helping patients and families cope with the news of a fatal diagnosis.

Through her ten plus years as a therapist, Beth has grown to be a very well-rounded therapist. Her previous work experience coupled with her passion to help others has enabled her to connect with clients, couples and families yielding positive outcomes and progress. Beth specializes in treating trauma related disorders to include PTSD, anxiety disorders to include panic attacks, depression, body image and eating disorders, bipolar disorder, and family issues. She takes an integrated approach and collaborates with her clients to individualize care. Her clinical style is influenced by Emotionally Focused Therapy and other experiential therapies, and she uses strength-based, evidenced-based approaches to provide psychoeducation and help shift dynamics to create change.

Beth believes counseling can truly change someone’s life if the client and therapist trust and work together to meet the goals they have collectively set. She challenges her clients while offering support and guidance. She believes reaching out for help is a sign of strength and that a person will reap rewards for that risk, and she considers it an honor to support clients in this courageous journey.

For fun, Beth enjoys spending time with family and friends. She enjoys traveling to see family living outside of Texas as well as exploring new places and things with her husband and year old son.
