About Me

My name is Rick Gantt. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor - Supervisor in the commonwealth of Kentucky. I have over 20 years of experience working as a mental health counselor and have a very diverse set of experiences through the years with preferences in bipolar and mood issues, grief and mourning, anger issues, couples counseling and past traumas. I also have considerable experience working with substance and dual diagnosis. I prefer an adolescent through adult and even geriatric clientele. I am experienced and do care about those that I work with and enjoy seeing my clients succeed.

I am an eclectic therapist which basically means that I use what I see is most effective for the Client.  Much of what we will talk about will be Gestalt therapy which attempts to help you be empowered to learn to make your own decisions and help to find the sources of issues within your past.  CBT and behavioral therapies are always useful in helping to see that by changing these thoughts you can easily change behaviors that follow.  I also use some psychoanalytic to help to see the influence that your development has had on your current thoughts and emotions.  And finally, Client centered which helps in creating an environment for learning.

Rick is a wise and understanding person. The sessions I have had with him are productive and we move at a reasonable pace. He is able to ask hard questions and challenge my thinking directly. He offers empathy and understanding.

Excellent therapy. Felt really listened to, and had all of my worries explained to me in a calm way. Received a better understanding surrounding my diagnosis in the UK and he's really helped me to manage my emotions and behaviours better.

Rick is a great listener, clear in what he says, kind, helpful and very patient. In that 4 sessions we had together, we set goals and he helped me see what needed to be done to achieve those goals. I was able to improve my relationships and be comfortable with who I am. It would not have been possible without these sessions. I know what I need to be working on to reduce anxiety and improve my relationships now and because of the practical suggestions he gave me, I find it possible. I am extremely thankful to Rick for having a positive impact on my life. I would look for Rick for future therapy sessions too!

Rick is a fantastic therapist who manages to cut right to the heart of an issue and provide you with the tools to overcome and tackle it. A no nonsense approach that is really effective in helping you achieve your goals. I can't speak highly enough of the therapy I have received to date and recommend to anyone lucky enough to be assigned to Rick!
