John S. Carton, Ph.D., ABPP

Board Certified/Licensed Psychologist


Thank you for your interest in my practice. I am a psychologist and former university professor. I previously worked at a pediatric hospital, university medical center, and rehabilitation hospital, in addition to my academic and private practice positions. I provide a variety of services that are described on the navigation links. They include treatments for mental health conditions, chronic health conditions, family therapy, executive and academic coaching, and sports psychology for athletes. 

I am a sole practitioner who believes clients deserve individual attention from a competent psychologist. My clients never receive a call back from a receptionist. I personally return all messages and assist with billing/insurance issues. Please give me a call or send me an email if you have questions about my practice, insurance, costs, and scheduling. I am happy to spend some time up front to determine if I am a good fit for your needs. I also am happy to assist you with finding another psychologist if it becomes apparent I am not a good match. I can be reached by phone at 404-401-6247 and by email at [email protected] ‚Äč

My office is located in Grand Rapids, Michigan near Calvin University and I am accepting new patients. If you are a former client from my practice in Georgia and would like my assistance, please contact me. I'm happy to help you and I have the capability for videoconference sessions and phone consultations. 

NOTE: During the COVID-19 outbreak and to comply with the Governor's Order to Stay Home, Stay Safe, I am only providing Telehealth appointments at this time.
