I am a professional counselor licensed in Missouri with thirteen years' combined experience in the mental health field. For the past 5 years I have worked almost exclusively with children and teens who have experienced abusive trauma, treating anger, depression, anxiety and PTSD symptoms that often accompany it. In addition, I have educated and supported adults in addiction recovery, survivors of domestic violence, and parents of traumatized children.
My counseling style is warm and collaborative. I believe in unconditional positive regard and a shared partnership in identifying treatment goals and steps to obtain them. I combine elements of CBT, EMDR, and DBT therapies as well as practical, mindful solutions that can easily be incorporated into our daily lives. Each client-counselor relationship is as unique as the people in them; as our conversation evolves, I will customize my approach to meet your individual needs. You are worth more than one-size-fits-all treatment.
Starting therapy with someone new can be daunting, whether it's your first time to counseling or not. I'm so glad you've decided to invest in your mental and emotional health, because YOU MATTER!
I look forward to getting to know you better. Please let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to help you find the answers you seek.

Harriet made me feel at ease straight away and really feels like she listens to my concerns. Feeling the benefit even after just a few sessions.
I have been working with Harriet for a short time, but she has been so insightful and very responsive. I like having her as part of my team!
Harriet is very knowledgeable in guiding me through some old trauma and helping me understand its effects. She asks thought provoking questions. Harriet is great at responding to emails or sending one to check in on me. I'm very thankful to have her as a counselor.
Harriet has been responsive to my needs. She has offered practical guidance to help me make personal progress.
Harriet has been invaluable to me. I found her earlier this year and I'm so glad I did. I have been working through some very heavy topics with her and she is very caring, understanding and helpful. She has given me many tools to use in my everyday life to help cope with grief and anger. She is so great!
I’ve been using BetterHelp for a few months now and I’ve been working with Harriet since the beginning; I love working with her! I’ve got more out of these past few months of therapy than I have in years of other therapy. Some would say it’s working so effectively because it’s the “right time” and maybe that’s true... but I definitely think it’s because of the way BetterHelp works; the way you’re able to connect with your therapist and all the other cool tools you can utilize too, like worksheets, group sessions and the journal... AND I definitely think therapy is helping me so much right now because I’m lucky enough to be working with Harriet, who makes me feel totally safe and heard and with her expertise and kindness is teaching me about myself and helping work out how my brain and heart operate. Harriet is professional and really knows her stuff- she and BetterHelp are changing my life as we speak!
Harriet has been extremely responsive to my needs.
Only just started counseling with Harriet but she seems very approachable and has already helped me a lot.
I have greatly appreciated all of Harriet Gordon's support. She's worked with my chaotic travel/work schedule and really made me feel supported. I have worked through numerous deeply seeded issues and the process has been enjoyable.
Harriet has supported me through a time in my life where I felt lost. As someone who has never spoken to a therapist before I was anxious, but instantly felt at ease and understood. She encourages me to take things at my own pace, whilst offering a non-judgmental perspective. I am grateful to have someone so kind and empathetic find my way back to myself. She has helped me so much already and continues to do so every day.
I usually have a hard time warming up to people, especially therapist, doctors, etc, but Harriet had me at ease with her first message to me. She really does listen and is great at helping me see things from a different angle.
Really lovely, caring and uplifting person to work with. Highly recommended.
Absolutely fab!! So supportive and understanding, I never feel judged and the sessions are helping me so much.
There simply aren’t enough words to praise her abilities. She is direct, kind, patient, insightful, all the things I had been looking for in a therapist but couldn’t find in one person. She has given me my life back.
Harriet is wonderful. She has helped me so much and continues to every day. I’m so glad I found this service that offers great people like her.
I love Harriet and I can see that she is a great person. She’s already helped me out a lot so far and I’m very grateful.
I have only been working with Harriet for a couple of weeks and feel immensely better. It is the first time I have spoken to a therapist and felt understood and I genuinely think I would be friends with her if she weren’t my therapist lol
I felt understood and listened to
In our one session I felt extremely comfortable and confident in her skills. I look forward to our next interaction. I love this format because it is so easy to find the time to have this help. I have shared this service to my friends. Thank you!
Harriet and I worked through some trauma I had in regards to a past relationship. She really allowed me to go at my pace and helped me re-frame my thoughts and become excited for the future. I cannot express how valuable the time I spent with Harriet was, and I am just so glad I decided to finally start taking time for myself.
Harriet is a wise and thoughtful counselor. She gives me a good perspective on things and is straightforward and down to earth. I appreciate her insights and suggestions very much.
Harriet has been fantastic so far. She has been incredibly supportive and most of all she understands how to help me through my issues. Would highly recommend her and this service.
She is a wonderful therapist and i hope i get to work with her again!
Harriet is very easy to talk to and able to steer conversations towards the stuff that matters. I have enjoyed my sessions with her thus far and have felt comfortable opening up due to her compassionate and open manner of communication. Highly recommend!
Harriet is great... She is really knowledgeable and skilled. It hasnt been long but I already feel better.
Harriet is thoughtful and compassionate when she gives advice, and helps to stay focused on the goals of therapy. It's been beneficial having a calm and capable voice to respond to stressors and emotional states in life.
Harriet is an absolute lovely counsellor. She id approachable, down to earth, and has some great insight and guidance. I've benefitted greatly from our chats.
