Hi! I'm Amy and I'm a licensed professional counselor in the state of Missouri. Along with my Master's of Science degree in Counseling Psychology, I have a post-master’s veteran behavioral health certificate. Over the past 8 years, I have worked across a wide spectrum of clients. I have experience with anxiety, depression, bipolar, substance use disorders, anger management, family conflict, crisis intervention, goal setting, and with clients just wanting to optimize their mental health.
My personal approach to therapy is to create a partnership with a client working towards the goals the client wants to achieve. From the first conversation until the end, I maintain unconditional positive regard towards my clients. I believe therapy can be both about coping skills and achieving goals, but also about the process of discovering yourself through talk therapy. I utilize cognitive-behavioral approaches, dialectical behavioral techniques, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness techniques depending on individual needs of clients.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Amy Creason. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Amy is extremely good at wading through all the BS that I'd usually throw up in front of my problems and keeps me focused on the progress that I can make in any situation. She's also very mindful of my limits, in energy and emotions, and does a good job keeping the progress we make realistic and pragmatic. I highly recommend Amy for anyone who has had an unconventional life and want to do better in it.

I’ve been going through a lot and over time, it’s taken it toll on me. So far, Amy has done a great job of opening my eyes to reality and showing me what there is to appreciate. Mostly self-discovery, but in general, being happy with me. I’m glad that I’ve found her.

Amy is great! Super personable and welcoming and she has already helped me identify and work though some unproductive thought patterns, in just a couple sessions. I really like the way she includes me in our sessions - she’s never telling me exactly what to do, but rather guides me to reach my own conclusions and solutions.
