Professional statement

Deborah Carter is a dedicated Psychologist based in Bartlett, Tennessee, specializing in individual and couples therapy for individuals aged 18 and older. Deborah's practice primarily focuses on addressing issues related to anxiety, depression, and grief. She is particularly passionate about serving adults between the ages of 18 and 80, bringing advanced training to address various challenges, including anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, spiritual concerns, and life transitions.

Deborah's therapeutic approach is rooted in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, ACT, and Mindfulness. During sessions, she incorporates a variety of modalities, such as Vision Boards, Journaling, Reading, Faith-based activities, and Homework, to provide a comprehensive and personalized experience. This approach empowers clients to explore and understand unhealthy life patterns, develop effective coping skills, build confidence, set and achieve goals, enhance positive self-esteem, navigate grief, and establish healthy communication patterns and boundaries.

Deborah is committed to creating a compassionate, supportive, and nonjudgmental space for her clients. In the initial stages of therapy, she works diligently to establish a comfortable relationship where clients feel heard and understood. Together, you identify and prioritize the goals you wish to address and work on throughout the therapeutic process.

Deborah holds a Ph.D. from Tennessee State University and brings a wealth of experience from various professional settings, including Vanderbilt Counseling Center, Positive Beginnings Teen Pregnancy Center, Christ Missionary Baptist Church, and the University of Memphis Counseling Center.

Beyond her professional endeavors, she finds joy in her personal interests. She cherishes moments spent with her dog, Dazzle, indulges in reading and listening to audiobooks, embraces the serenity of walks, savors beach outings, and relishes quality time with family and friends. Additionally, she actively contributes to ministry at her church. It is worth noting that her practice is conducted online, offering accessibility and convenience to those seeking therapeutic support.
