About me

Hi-- my name is Amy Kilgore and I am a licensed professional clinical counselor. I have 13 years of professional work experience and a lifetime of personal experience. I have received much healing grace in my life and am passionate about serving others on their journey. At the foundation of my work is my belief in the gospel of Jesus Christ which informs my worldview and sense of peace, hope, love and security. I have a broad range of experience treating various mental health disorders in all age ranges. I am currently trained/certified in two forms of trauma treatment (EMDR, TF-CBT) as I believe most clinical disorders are manifestations of unresolved grief and fear issues. I have the most experience in helping clients with trauma and abuse, stress and anxiety, coping with addictions, relational issues, eating disorders, personality disorders & coping with grief and loss. I believe that you are the expert of your story and acknowledge that reaching out for help is most difficult and courageous. I'm here to support you in your process -- please let me know If you think we're a good match! :)

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Amy Kilgore. 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 has been a blessing. I was really reluctant to start therapy. I had a hard time opening up and getting words out of my mouth. After a few months, I was able to express myself thanks to Amy’s help. I felt so heard and never judged. I told her things I’d never told anyone before for fear of judgement. She never once made me feel weird or judged. I can’t say enough good things about Amy!

Amy's positive energy radiates through the phone! She's very knowledgeable and challenges your negative thinking.

Mrs.Kilgore has been incredible. I didn’t originally believe therapy was for me, but I already feel so much better about myself.

I’ve never been to therapy before but Amy makes it so easy to talk and help solve the issues that exist, I am very confident in her and would recommend her and BetterHelp to anyone who needs it!
