Hello, my name is Dr. Tess DeProw. I have a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri. I have helped many people struggling with depression, drug addiction, relationship breakups, childhood trauma, parenting issues and anxiety. I will work with you to help you identify what your personal strengths are and together we will develop a plan to improve the quality of your life. I used several different therapeutic approaches: cognitive-behavioral therapy, strength-based therapy, motivational interviewing and narrative therapy.
All of the tools I use are designed to empower you and help you see that you do have choices as to how we handle the situations that we are faced with. Sometimes the fear of change is scarier than the change itself.
My personal counseling style is warm, empathetic, encouraging and empowering.
Additional areas of focus: Stress, Anxiety, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Depression
Clinical approaches: Attachment-Based Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy
