Ian Guthrie

(MA, LPC)

About Me

I am a professional counselor licensed in the state of Missouri, with over four years of experience, and over a decade of experience working with addiction and mental health. Throughout those years, I've helped many couples reconnect and find improved understanding of one another, through struggles ranging from inattention, infidelity, family conflict, life planning, and difficulty communicating.

There are times in our lives when we need a new vision and someone to help us create strategies to overcome old challenges and take life to the next level. Seeking this change can be a daunting task, but I am here to help support you in your success. My counseling style is rather eclectic, based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, with strong influences from Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused techniques, and existential psychotherapy.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by D.A. on Apr 30, 2020 after counseling with Ian for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

So far he seems pretty regular, which is good it's not like you're being analyzed, but you talking to a regular person.

Ian’s help came at a critical time for our family. We were on the verge of separating (not the first time) and frankly this was our last resort.

Ian’s easy to talk to, a pro at listening to you, and helping you to listen to what your partner is saying.

We worked with Ian for a few months and, with his guidance, I can genuinely say my partner and I have done 180° turn in our relationship. What minor conflicts we have, get resolved since we’ve learned skills and build habits to work as a team and come together. In between those tiny conflicts, we are much more connected and intimate and feel like we are heading in the direction we’ve always wanted to but couldn’t, because we were in our own way. We can’t think Ian enough for his help and can’t recommend him highly enough.
