Twaina Carpenter

(LPC, NBCC)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has over 30 years in the helping profession; 20 of those helping profession years were accomplished while serving on active duty in the United States Air Force. While serving my country, I loved helping to motive, encourage, mentor & lead others to know better, do better and be better, nothing has changed, I still love helping others to affect change in their lives!

In working with couples, whether married or dating, I can assist clients by helping them to work on the following: better communication skills, re-connection, relationship enhancement, infidelity struggles, conflict resolution & deployment reunification. I utilize Gottman and Prepare Enrich techniques to assist couples in knowing each other better and help in rekindling that fire, when it dwindles because of kids, career, complacency, and just every day life.

I specialize in general issues to include depression, anxiety or fears, ADHD, addictions, behavioral issues, adolescent concerns (self-esteem & self-harming), emotional disturbances, couples conflict, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), peer relationships, spirituality, suicidal ideation, trauma & PTSD. mood concerns, crisis intervention, life stressors/adjustments, loss and grief, anger management concerns, and communication/social skills. I like to utilize behavior-based therapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to assist clients. “Meeting clients where they are” and helping them to reach goals while feeling better mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually are my personal commitment.

Twaina has been an amazing person. She is very profesional and has made me feel hopeful and relaxed even though my situation hasn’t been the best. I am very grateful for her.

Twaina is very friendly and welcoming. We were a bit apprehensive about opening up at first but the calming and open discussion put us at ease. The sessions have a great timeline and purpose where we have a clear goal and expectations. Highly recommend!
