Don Carter MSW, LCSW & Angie Carter CRADC, SAP

Don & Angie will work with you to create your own personal “Golden Key” for success! Everyone is different, so we start with a thorough assessment and then pull from every resource at our disposal to create a precision-targeted coaching program, whether that be tools from Serenity Cafe Academy or our years of experience. Contact Us to arrange a free consultation.

Growing up in a less-than-nurturing family hurts and leaves emotional wounds ~ and wounded people, wound people! Just as whole families get wounded, whole families can and do recover. That’s why we made it possible to sign up for courses in groups here at the Academy. Spouses, adult children, therapist and client(s), and friends from a recovery group ~ Teamwork is always best! Just pick a group leader and select how many participants you want at checkout.

Angie and Don have had the benefit of learning from some of the best helpers over the years. We are the culmination of all they have given us and we want to pass it on. Serenity Cafe Academy is one way we do that. Don also helps prepare Masters level Social Workers for licensure here in Missouri. We want these tools to be available long after we are gone so we offer consultation and training to counselors and coaches who want to grow and learn.

Get in touch with us for a free consultation by clicking the button below ~ or simply drop us an email by clicking the link at the top of any page. We made these resources for our clients, website visitors, and anyone else who might benefit. We highly recommend that you work with a professional on many of the courses unless you have experience with therapy and recovery. The courses here are not intended to replace professional help, but to compliment it. If you are a therapist or life coach who would like to use these resources with your clients, use the group registration option when you sign up for a course. Whoever you choose to be the group leader (e.g., a therapist/coach) will be able to follow the progress of all members of the group.
