I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Missouri with over eight years of experience as a therapist. I have worked with adults and adolescents with severe and persistent mental illness, substance abuse, trauma, depression, anxiety, ODD, ADD/ADHD, and marriage and family therapy.
I believe every person should have access to quality mental health services regardless of race, religion, socio-economic status, lifestyle, or other demographic. While I have training in many therapeutic styles, my approach closely resembles person-centered therapy and psychodynamic therapy techniques. I feel that if we understand our past and come to terms with it through self-actualization, we can live a more fulfilling life.

I look forward to my weekly sessions. It's like getting this weighted balloon off my chest and she's helped me work through a lot of past issues as I deal with the new.
Katy and I have made great progress and I’m so grateful to be working with her! She has been instrumental in a journey during a dark time.
Katy is a true gift in my life. I have been able to navigate some really trying times and have been given so many skills that have improved my life so much with her support and guidance. She's beyond incredibly, highly talented, and as I say to many of my family members and friends "everyone in their life needs a Katy." Not sure where I'd be without her.
I have been working with Katie Hamilton for well over a year now, she’s always there when I need someone to talk to and always put a new spin on any issue I happen to have. I strongly and highly recommend this lady. She is an excellent listener, an awesome communicator, and it’s been a long time since I’ve had such a good counsellor that I have felt at home with.
I have found Katy to be honest, helpful, positive, knowledgeable & friendly. I don't feel like I'm being judged or criticized. I've only had a few emails and a couple of chat sessions as per my request and I am very happy with the way things are progressing. I highly recommend Katy.
Katy has been wonderful. She’s responsive to messaging and is really helping me in our teletherapy sessions. She understands how my anxiety works and always takes that into account in our sessions, and helps me to find better ways to accept the feelings but then cope with the appropriately.
Katy’s empathy, sharpness of insight, and practical takeaways make her one of the most effective counselors I’ve ever worked with (and I’ve worked with quite a few). Thank you, Katy, for helping me make wiser decisions!
Katy has been great and I have recommended her to a couple friends already!
I’m literally just signing on to ask her if I can refer my sister to her. Would 12/10 refer her to anyone! I think she is great and I enjoy our sessions.
Having Katy Hamilton as a counselor was a blessing, she helped me understand that my trauma does not define who I am and I can use it as a way to empower and help others that have gone through similar situations as me instead of using it to put myself down. I went from a person that was a afraid of everything and everyone around me to a person who is not afraid to stand up for what I believe in. She is honest and will tell you things how it is which is what many people need in order to get better having a counselor is like a parent teaching their child how to ride a “big kid bike”, they’ll guide you and give you a push to move forward, you might fall and get hurt a couple times but it is you who decides if you Who decides whether or not you want to keep your old bike or move on to the new one .
She’s amazing. I’m so thankful for her.
Amazing, a great therapist. Found myself lucky to have matched with her.
Katy is phenomenal. I was in a very dark place for a while and Katy helped me realize and understand so many things about my past/upbringing that really helped to reassure me of my self-worth and get me back on solid ground. I don’t know how she does it but she is always able to help me through all of my problems, even the ones I think are impossible.
I have been working with Katy for 5 months and the changes I can see in myself have been amazing. Katy listens and tells you what you need to hear. Sometimes it is hard to hear certain things, but she doesn’t sugar coat and truly wants to see the best version of you. I highly recommend Katy to anyone.
She is fantastic. I always feel better after each session. She listens then gives advice. Great personality! Very open!
Mrs. Katy is one of the most caring and compassionate therapists I’ve met. She has helped me understand myself better and nature of my pain, giving me the tools to cope with them.
Katy is wonderful! She really helped me out when I needed it. She is very good at her job and super friendly and easy to talk to.
Katy is very competent and dedicated as a counselor. Every time we speak I feel she hears me and deeply cares for me, for the sake of me and my own “betterment” and progress in life. I very much appreciate her cleverness and sharp intelligence. Yes, I feel with Katy I can ‘move on.’
