Hello, I'm Scotty Carpenter
I have a passion for helping people find their way in a world that can be challenging and confusing. Life is meant to be filled with purpose, and we long to be whole. I am a North Carolina Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate.
My educational background includes counseling and theological studies. I have a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lindsey Wilson College in Columbia, Kentucky. Additionally, I have a Master of Divinity and a Ph.D. from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.
Most of my professional experience comes from my role as a senior pastor for 25 years. I have served as a pastor in North Carolina, Virginia, Indiana, and Alabama. As a pastor I walked with people through grief and loss, career changes, leadership decisions, discovering hopes and dreams, family choices, questions about God, and intellectual dilemmas. I have an understanding of what it means to go through difficult times to emerge stronger.
As a counselor, I use research-based counseling methods to help people reach their life goals. We discover and build upon the strengths that you have giving you the resources that you need to succeed. I listen to each person and design our time together based on what works best for you. I am able to integrate theology and/or existential ideas into sessions as little or as much as you desire. I want you to reach your goals for a healthy future.
Hello, I'm MC Hartley
I have been a fully licensed therapist (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) since 2012. My practice is focused on strengthening our youth to find their full potential! I love to help young people figure out how to recognize emotions, build emotional regulation skills, learn and master coping skills, overcome adversity, strengthen their self image and self esteem, challenge negative self talk, navigate adolescence, identify personal values, and achieve their goals. I work hard to ensure my clients feel respected, heard, supported, and valued in an environment without judgment. I value and respect cultural and religious beliefs and love to learn from my clients to incorporate those beliefs in our work together.
My approach to therapy is to meet clients where they are, engage them, and work together to make the connections between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in order to live a more meaningful and balanced life. I strive to create a hands-on and active environment in my treatment approach by incorporating art, games, worksheets, music, books, and body movement into my sessions. I draw from a variety of modalities to meet the needs of each individual client; some of these include cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, solution focused therapy, client focused therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and art and play therapy.
My experience includes helping families and individuals overcome trauma, abuse, neglect, abandonment, poverty, racism, and community violence. I have worked with clients struggling with grief and loss, depression, anxiety, adjustment concerns, self esteem and self confidence, stress, and life and family transitions. I have supported families and youth involved in systems like Child Protective Services, the criminal legal system, and hospitals. I work hard to partner with parents, schools, social supports, and other individual needs to support each client holistically in a family/systems approach.
I received both my Bachelor of Arts and Masters of Social Work degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I am vivacious, outgoing, caring, and talkative. I am passionate about Tar Heel basketball, social justice, coffee, volunteering, trail and road running, my family, and I make new friends everywhere I go!
