About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor licensed in Missouri. I have been working with clients for 17+ years. I have a varied background including working with those that suffer from substance use disorders, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, life adjustment issues such as disability and retirement. I've also worked with many clients over the years that have suffered trauma related to abuse.

As a counselor, I believe in treating everyone with respect and dignity. I always find it an honor to walk the path with clients on their journey. Your treatment will always go in the direction that you believe that it should. That doesn't mean I won't make the occasional suggestion but those suggestions will always be based on what you, as the client, say or want to pursue.

It definitely takes courage to enter into therapy and address whatever issues are holding you back. If you are ready to take this step, I'm definitely ready to walk with you on your journey.

Curtis is an excellent therapist! He is extremely nonjudgmental and has helped me so much this past year. He gives excellent perspectives and insights that I never would have discovered on my own.

Written by M.I. on Feb 21, 2022 after therapy with Curtis for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, parenting issues, anger management, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Curt is an incredible counselor. He has all the basics you would look for in a counselor - strong listening skills, empathy mixed with saying it like it is, and a consistently strong approach. But he also has all the intangibles that I think make a good counselor - ability to know when to give advice vs when to listen, ability to reflect thoughts back well, ability to bring some humor and levity, etc. I cannot recommend Curt highly enough. This was my 3rd experience in true counseling, and he was by far the best counselor I've ever had. This guy is the real deal. Thank you Curt!

Written by V.A. on Jan 12, 2022 after therapy with Curtis for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Dr. Curt is very caring and an attentive listener. He relates with the person telling the concerns and gives a very supportive encouragement or guidance on shifting focus or perspectives on positive aspects. I'm so thankful I've met him.

He is fantastic. My first appointment with him made a difference to me. I’ve had therapists and psychiatrists make me feel invalidated and treat me like a problem. He listens, and provides advice and help when I need it.
