About Me

Hello and welcome to my profile! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Missouri and have been helping couples and families seek life solutions for over 10 years. I enjoy helping couples with a variety of issues including strengthening the core friendship of the relationship, navigating financial and parenting struggles, and learning healthy conflict management.

Methods that I have found particularly effective for clients in couples therapy include but are not limited to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and the Gottman Method for Couples. Sessions are structured to meet relational goals with activities assigned between sessions to practice and further develop ideas discussed during sessions. Each relationship is unique and each therapy session is planned around your needs and goals. I feel that trust in the therapeutic relationship is the basis for our work together and we will start out investing time to build that relationship.

I am hopeful that through a strong therapeutic alliance and evidence-based methods we can make excellent progress toward your goals. Let’s work together to find joy and value in your life that you never thought possible!

Reviews

Written by R.O. on Apr 07, 2021 after counseling with Andrea for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

I have loved working with Andrea. I’m a counselor myself so having someone to help me shut that part of my brain off has been so nice. She’s so relatable and understanding during our video chats as well.
