I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, the owner and operator of NLJ Counseling and Coaching Services. I have been practicing since 2012 providing a variety of mental health services with an emphasis on promoting mental wellness and self care. I specialize in treating adolescents and adults with anxiety, depression, and mood disorders, specifically helping to manage stress related to environmental, and phase of life concerns.
Have you been feeling down lately? Are you having trouble managing everyday stress? Do you need assistance in your romantic relationship? Would you like your teen to receive help in college preparation? Do you want to lead a healthier mental and physical lifestyle? If so, contact me for an appointment. I am a dedicated therapist that loves to see my clients grow and develop deeper understandings of mental awareness. Your well-being is my priority. I will stand by your side to work through those tough emotions that we as humans sometimes face.
I am passionate about helping children and adults become their best version of themselves in life. I believe that reaching our fullest potential is a process that we work at daily, and I enjoy being a supportive partner in my clients' journey. I have experience helping individuals and families struggling with anxiety, anger management, depression, grief and loss, low self-esteem, occupational stress, parenting, relationship problems, and addiction recovery. I use a holistic approach focusing on developing a healthy mind, body, and spirit, using primarily cognitive-behavioral therapeutic techniques.
Deciding to enter therapy is a very personal decision, and one that might feel overwhelming at first. Maybe you are struggling to work through issues with a partner or connect with your children. Maybe a job you once enjoyed is beginning to feel less fulfilling, and you're wondering if you should explore other career options. Maybe you have struggled with depression and anxiety for a long time and are feeling stuck. I strive to provide an environment free of judgement, where clients can feel safe to work through many of these struggles at a pace that feels comfortable to them, and establish goals that we set collaboratively.
Are you struggling with obsessive thoughts about food and body size? Do you feel guilty every night when you go to sleep? Overcoming disordered eating can be a daunting task on your own. I am here to help you challenge these obsessive thought patterns and live a life free from body shame and work towards normalizing food patterns. You don’t have to fight the fight alone.
There are times when all of us need to talk. We really need another person to just truly listen and hear what we have to share. I am so glad that you are taking that first step in researching therapists, and I’d like to assist you in your journey of life. My name is Holly Jacobs and, I am a Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri operating under the Supervision of Dr. Brenda Bryant. My areas of emphasis include, individual, couples, adolescent and teens counseling, and I believe in an integrated, person-centered approach to counseling, delivered in a safe and judgment-free environment.
The clients I have worked with have a variety of issues. Usually these are related to their self confidence and can be impacted by their relationships with parents, teammates, coaches, teachers and competitors. They typically want assistance at guiding them to understand their goals, strengths, weaknesses, fears, distractions and stressors. We will work thru their communication with others, their preparation, focus, attitude and self confidence. Most clients want to understand where their issues started, find solutions to them and ways to be more confident and happy with themselves and accomplishing their personal goals.
I want you to know what an important step you are taking to make changes in your life. Counseling can be amazing and scary at times but well worth the effort you put into it. Choosing a counselor is the first step in taking charge of your emotional health. I believe that our mind, body, and soul are connected and when one is out of step, the others are too. Life can be rough at times but I would love to help you through it. I also conduct speaking engagements to educate different groups on mental health topics.
I love working with children, parents, and adult women with a variety of issues. I am a trauma focused therapist and will walk beside a client through difficult and life changing processes. I am so grateful for all the people who want to better their lives and are reaching out to me. I am not the best at returning phone calls with my full appointment days so the best way to get ahold of me is email or text! Kristenjamescounseling@gmail.com

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, MA, LCPC
My specialty is working with women age 18 and up who are struggling with body weight, body shame, emotional eating, and compulsive overeating. I have over 20 years of counseling experience. I love working pre-bariatric and post-bariatric weight loss patients. I'll help you change your relationship with food, your view of self, and help you reclaim your confidence and self worth. I work with grief, anxiety and depression, relationship issues, stress, parenting your parents stress, and adjustments to new situations in your life. I want to partner with you to become the best version of you, ending fears, shame, and self destruction.
There are so many persons struggling with low self-esteem/self-confidence, anxiety, a need to control the people and situations in their lives, a need to "please" or be the "peace maker", who are constantly driven to do more and be more, and who cannot seem to find joy and peace in their lives. These have definitely been issues in my life. At times I felt like I might go crazy. . .but I didn't know how to manage differently so that I could capture moments of peace and solace, without guilt!
After over 35 years of professional experience, I have found for many people, who may be coming for counseling for the first time, that it is important to recognize people come in often afraid of what the experience will be like. My hope is that I can ease people's anxiety, provide important information to them, important insights and help people move forward to meet their goals.
Sometimes what we KNOW is true does not FEEL true. Your days may involve fighting intrusive thoughts, wrestling with anxiety, or trying to act okay when you feel anything but “fine.” Your mind may feel like the problem right now, but it is a beautifully unique and complex part of you that is capable of wellness. While stress can be minimized, it will never be completely eliminated from our lives. However, our brains can learn to adapt and find safety even in the midst of life's storms. Whether you have trauma symptoms, anxiety, or OCD you can move beyond just surviving. You are capable of thriving.
Licensed Professional Counselor, PhD, NCC, LPC, LCMHC, LCPC
After retiring as Director of Counseling at Lindenwood University in 2017, I moved to Warren County; I live in Wright City and now exclusively practice teletherapy from my home office. I have been an LPC in Missouri since 1987, and the author of two books. I very much enjoy working with clients; I have a professional, energetic, friendly style. As a systems therapist, I approach clients in an interdependent manner... never in isolation. Even when working with individual clients, I am mindful of how their myriad relationships affect them...and how they affect others. I think of all clients psycho-biologically.
I work with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families from a relational, trauma informed, attachment informed, developmental perspective. Trained in child psychotherapy, couples therapy and family therapy, I work to understand clients within the context of their primary and family relationships. I especially enjoy working with couples and families. I work to identify the emotional and interpersonal obstacles to further growth, and build on the strength and resilience of the individual, couple and family. .I have experience working with children and adolescents experiencing the full range of emotional, social and developmental difficulties.
