About me

I am a LPCC-S in Kentucky with over 6 years of experience working as a treatment director and therapist of a mental health facility. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, DMDD, ODD, PTSD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse, and I am certified for TF-CBT and working on the trauma narrative. I have worked with all ages which includes children (6-12), adolescents (13-20), and adults.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I like to tell jokes and make others laugh because sometimes laughter is the best medicine but Iam also direct and will challenge you to be a better version of yourself. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, person centered and rational-emotive therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Reviews

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Jason Amyx. 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.

Jason has been very supportive and understanding of my experiences and issues that brought me to better help. I have better tools to navigate the ebb and flow of anxiety and depression. He gave me book recommendations and workbooks to work from. His help has been priceless (well as much as I pay!) I would recommend him to anyone who has adopted a child and whose marriage is strained and is dealing with demons in their head. I’ve learned to not dismiss my issues as insignificant or less than when discussing myself because we all have value to bring to the table and Jason helped me get that back!

Jason is great. I had never done therapy and he walked me into it and made it very comfortable. I went through a lot right at the beginning of our journey and he took it in stride. Helped me tremendously with anger management and subsequently anxiety and depression! Can’t say enough great things about this man.
