Carter opens new practice in Norman

NORMAN — Carrick Carter, a 2001 Norman High School graduate and the daughter of Kent and Kelcie Carter, has returned to Norman to open a child psychology practice specializing in children ages 2 to 17.

Her practice will include services such as therapy and testing to address school and family problems, depression, anxiety, developmental disabilities, chronic medical illnesses and ADHD.

“I am looking forward to getting to use the skills I’ve learned to help children and families,” said Carter.

After 11 years away, she is moving back to Norman to be closer to family and because she believes there is a need for more clinicians.

“I feel like this is a ministry opportunity,” said Carter. “Families need support they don’t always have.”

Carter chose to specialize in child psychology after recognizing a need in her community for children and families who experience problems of all kinds. Her experience as a practicum student at Timothy Christian School in Elmhurst, IL and her postdoctoral fellowship in pediatric psychology at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock has given her particular insight into issues such as bullying and pediatric obesity.

Before returning to Norman, Carter developed an extensive resume including a predoctoral internship in child and adolescent clinical psychology at Philhaven Hospital in Mount Gretna, Pa., and as an advanced practicum student at the University of Illinois at Chicago, she served on the Hispanic Diagnostic and Family Support team

Carter also presented information about bullying at conferences around the country after completing her doctoral dissertation on the spirituality and peer victimization in early adolescence at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Ill. She received her Health Service Psychologist license from the State of Oklahoma in December 2012.

Carter has a B.S. in Human Development and Family Science from Oklahoma State University and received her M.A. and Psy.D. in clinical psychology with an emphasis in children and adolescence from Wheaton College where she was awarded a doctoral scholarship for outstanding academic achievement. Carter also gained experience working with children as a preschool teacher at Pumpkin Shell School in Norman.
