Philosophy of Care

You deserve some relief and I want to help you gain some control over your moods. Most of us that worry a lot or succumb to feelings of sadness have been stuck in this cycle for some time. The good news is though anxiety and depression can be debilitating, it doesn’t have to be. Working together we can explore why these feelings have developed and take steps to alleviate them by learning new coping skills and developing a self-care plan unique to your needs.

We will work together to discover what underlying events, circumstances or relationships have contributed to your fear and sadness. Once we figure that out we can then begin to help you make better choices to support balance and overall wellness.

Often times our responsibilities take over our lives and we leave little time and space to recharge. This makes achieving balance very difficult, thus we will look at the demands you have and work to schedule “me time” so that you are better equipped to manage all the roles you play.

Embarking on this process will give you a sense of control and balance.

Getting started can feel a little scary yet taking steps to take better care of yourself is important and scheduling your first session can bring a near instant sense of relief.

You are able to either call, text, or email our office manager to schedule a complimentary consultation call.

I am a mom of 4, and former businesswoman who has battled anxiety and post-partum depression myself in past years. So, in other words, I get it. Juggling multiple roles and responsibilities can be daunting for anyone. I was able to take back control of my life by doing exactly what you are considering doing right now – getting a little help to assist in understanding why I was experiencing those feelings.

I use a combination of methods to create an individualized plan of treatment unique to each client. I work with you to develop a path toward relief that best suits you. This will require us to explore difficult topics at times, so we can determine the right tools to help you feel better.

I earned my Master’s of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Wake Forest University. Since then I have worked in out-patient treatment settings for mood disorders and addiction as well as served as a unit lead in a pediatric psychiatric facility. All these varied experiences have helped me grow as a clinician and provided with many therapeutic skills and tools to help you navigate your current challenges.

I am a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor in the State of Georgia. Yet, I also hold several specialty certifications including, Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor, Certified Sex Offender Treatment Provider, with additional trainings in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Cartier Gantt-Owens, LMFT

Philosophy of Care

Cartier Gantt is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of Georgia and California,  her passion is creating a safe space for those in need to talk and work through their life stressors;  whether it be Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, or familial issues. She has helped empower her Clients which have included Veterans, sexual/domestic assault survivors, children, adults and  families, to build healthy and happy relationships, and regain the control they feel they may have  lost, doing so in a judge free space. 

Cartier is not married to one theoretical orientation, because in her experience she has noticed  that Clients have different needs and that requires using different orientations and tools. In her  five plus years in the therapy field many of her client benefited from Cognitive Behavioral  Therapy. Cartier has also seen great improvement using Solution Focused, and Attachment  Theory.  

When life gets hard we tend to turn inward, we recoil and suffer in silence, and if you do reach  out for help you are made to feel inadequate, bothersome, or weak. In closing, you are not alone,  Cartier is here for you, to help facilitate whatever change you desire.

in God, well then let's just say the universe or regardless of whatever it is you actually believe in, she has been an absolute gift in my life! This is a woman who NEVER makes you feel like you are just a number or a paycheck to her! I feel so thankful to know her! I can't fully express in words, how blessed I feel to have her in my life but I'm going to try just for the sake of someone else who might need to know her could be reading this. She is someone who’s beyond kind and compassionate and caring! She always meets me exactly where I am, and there has never been a single time that I don’t feel better after a session with her. My sessions change my week, my life, and also keep me sane when things go crazy! It brings me comfort in remembering no matter how hard things feel I get to see her and she will do whatever is in her power to help me help myself! She never fails to remind me who I am in my core, or what I’m trying to accomplish, or how to lead with a level head and not my emotions based on what I’ve told her I'm trying to accomplish. She helps me stay focused, determined, and accountable. Her soul is one of the best I’ve ever seen! I have been in and out of therapy the better half of my life and I'm about to be 28. I have had all kinds of people and teachings and nothing compares to the relationship I’ve developed with this woman in just a few short months. I don’t feel like she’s just a counselor, I feel like she’s my friend! Kelli shows up for me in a way no one else in my life does! I feel like I can tell her anything without fear. It's always a judgement free zone! I feel like she always comes from a place of love and of service in her heart! She’s always teaching me new ways and tricks and tips that help me. I am going through a great deal of things in my life right now and I’ve got to say I don’t really know what I would do without this woman and her support! The role she plays in my life is so significant. There is something so special about knowing you can count on someone, and not just count on someone but have great advice. There is something huge to say when a person is choosing to show up for you when you need them most, and I just want to express that I have literally never ever felt like I was just a way for her to make money. When I think about Kelli I can't help but want to express how beautiful her soul is. She is such a special person and anyone who knows her knows she’s a gift; the kind of pure magic! Don’t believe me? Set up a session with her and find out for yourself!
