Greg Carpenter is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Seekonk, Massachusetts. He specializes in utilizing mind-body therapies to relieve acute stress and anxiety, heal stuck painful memories or past traumas, and navigate life transitions and relationships concerns.
Greg believes in healing through accessing and optimizing the structures of the brain, and clients can expect him to explain specific neurological processes and how they affect mood and behavior. In addition to traditional talk therapy, Greg is well-versed in alternative therapy techniques such as Emotional Freedom Technique (also known as tapping), Sound Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and other therapies targeting specific parts of the brain. He combines these to give clients the best possible outcome from their therapy experience.
Greg is dedicated to helping clients achieve immediate relief while also healing stuck painful memories. He does this through a three-step process: pain relief to reduce acute symptoms of anxiety; exploration of memories and how the client arrived at this painful situation; and finally, coaching to grow and transform.
Greg has a spiritual and theological background that aids in his sensitivity to the physical, psychological, relational, and spiritual dimensions of life. He enjoys working with students, athletes, young adults, couples, and adults in his private practice.
