We all struggle from time to time to feel like we're doing okay. Children in particular are learning every day how to pick up and carry on after they've faced something that challenged them. But sometimes they get stuck and don't know what to do - we all do. Divorce, bullying, changing families, and so many other life changes that are out of our control can have a drastic impact and lead us to withdraw, fall behind in school, act out at home, or worse. Whatever the issues you and your family may have, I believe that sessions with me can help you and your family to figure out where you're stuck and what we can do to move forward.

Hi, I'm Amy Jo! I practice a person-centered, strengths-based, trauma-focused approach to therapy. I have worked with individuals that have been victims of trauma, teens that struggled with compulsive behavior & emotional distress, families that struggle to overcome their differences, adults that want more out of life & to worry less, & couples longing for strengthened marriages. What every single one of them has in common, is a hopeful desire for better understanding and deeper meaning about themselves, as well as fostering & nurturing healthy relationships; especially the one they have with themselves.

Finding a therapist that makes you feel seen and connected can be an overwhelming task, especially when you've carried your pain alone for so long. When trauma occurs it and overwhelms our ability to cope, it can often intrude in the present moment long after the threat has passed. I am a trauma therapist and understand how the impacts of trauma can bring a human into significant internal and relational conflict. Whether your lived experiences have led you to struggling with depression, anxiety, intense emotion dysregulation, or substance use; I am here to carry it with you.

Reaching out for support takes strength and courage. I respect this, and my aim is to create a calm, inviting atmosphere where a deep sense of trust can grow between client and therapist. I believe that pain shared is pain lessened and that people can and do recover from issues that have been troubling them for years. I have found that many people enter therapy not because of a complex mental health issue but because of a general feeling of life not being what they would like it to be. Let me be a catalyst of change for you.

I believe that for children or adolescents to make meaningful change, they must learn skills by seeing, hearing, and doing them.

Whether you are in a marriage that is struggling, having a problem personally with substances, or just need some help clearing out the clutter in your life, my approach to counseling comes from many different counseling theories. I believe that it is important to focus on the here and now, emphasizing future actions, behaviors, and thoughts, rather than deeply exploring the past. While the past has brought us where we are today, how you believe today and how you act today is of more importance. I believe in being directive and intentional in all aspects of therapy.

Beliefs like “I’m unloveable because I’m fat, ugly, and disgusting. It’s not even worth trying to be happy.” plague larger women. We get ghosted, shamed, and ignored - it’s SO HARD to feel good about ourselves. And size is always an issue. It creeps up in the too-small waiting room chairs, in the bedroom where we’re too self-conscious to be all-in while having sex, at work when we get passed up for promotions. We feel not good enough, that we’re not important, that we don’t deserve a good life, that we’ll die alone. And this is not just in our heads - we get these messages from the world constantly.

I specialize in couples, working with those experiencing conflict, conflict-avoidance, infidelity/trust issues, communication problems, parenting/co-parenting struggles, and or when one or both partners experience depression, anxiety, or trauma. Relationships are the most important things in our lives, and when we get disconnected, everything in life can feel so much harder. I also see individuals who are struggling with self-worth issues, excessive worry, and past history of trauma. Therapy can do a world of good, especially when life has been painful. I am dedicated to the therapy process, and help clients find hope and relief.

What type of Saint Peters mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Saint Peters?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
