About Me

I am a professional counselor licensed in the state of Missouri, with over 3 years of experience, and over a decade of experience working with addiction and mental health. I have worked with a range of clients, from children to elderly, who have come to me for a variety of issues, including anxiety and stress, depression, relationship issues, addiction, and lack of motivation.

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 J.O. on Oct 08, 2019 after counseling with Ian for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, grief, and self esteem

I have been to therapy a few times in a doctors office. It was hard to take time out of my workday to go and they weren’t available at other times just to talk for a few minutes. I just figured that it wasn’t for me until I found BetterHelp. I was having some issues and knew I would feel better if I could talk to a professional. After a google search I found BetterHelp. The first 2 counselors that were recommended to me had office hours that didn’t work, then I was recommended to Ian Guthrie. His office hours work for me and he checks in with me a few times a week. It makes me feel important and wanting to positive about therapy. We chat at my appointments which makes me comfortable. I recommend BetterHelp and Ian Guthrie.
