She was supportive from the first session, even when we both thought it was too late. I feel like our communication was the biggest problem in our relationship and now it has improved 200%! So thankful for calling when we did!

About the Practice and the Communities we serve:

Although many confuse us with the more common agency setting, Heartland Counseling Center is actually a Group Private Practice. What does this mean for you? As a Private Practice, we are not constrained by many of the same geographical limitations that agency settings typically have.

Counselors at our Cape Girardeau MO office regularly see clients from all over the Southeast Missouri area and Southern Illinois. Whether you live to our North in areas like Perryville, South in Sikeston or Caruthersville, to our West in Dexter or Poplar Bluff, or even across the Mighty Mississippi River in Carbondale or beyond, we would be happy to work with you to meet your Counseling needs!

With the addition of our Farmington MO office in 2015 and an Arnold MO location in December 2019, we are now able to conveniently serve clients in the Parkland area in communities such as Ironton, Bonne Terre, and Ste. Genevieve as well as locations near the Arnold office like Fenton, Festus, and even South St. Louis County!

Our Counselors use a variety of treatment modalities, each specifically tailored to meet the needs of individual clients. Whenever applicable, our Counselors rely on Evidence-Based Treatments (EBT) in order to most efficiently and effectively treat the presenting problems.

For example, for clients struggling with Anxiety or Depression, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) has been shown in numerous studies to produce dramatic results when used by a trained professional. Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is another Evidence-Based Treatment commonly used to treat Trauma and related issues. These and other Evidence-Based Treatments are regularly used in our office to provide the quickest, longest lasting results possible to our clients. Our Counselors have specific training in various treatment approaches so they can efficiently and effectively implement them and provide you with the very best of care.

Before coming here for Counseling, I felt tense and on edge all the time. After a few weeks, I could already notice my anxiety was going away. I now have several new coping skills that I know will work when I need them. Thanks!
