Beverly Furstenberg

(LCSW, ACSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Missouri and I have been in the field for over 7 years now. I have worked with various populations over the years with a wide variety of concerns, ranging from psychiatric conditions, to addictions, trauma, homelessness and even domestic violence. I have obtained advanced training in the treatment of trauma.

My counseling style is warm, empathetic and interactive. I believe that my clients are the experts of their own lives and it is my honor to help them find the options, skills and perspectives that can empower them to make changes, to heal and to live their best lives. My approach combines a strengths-based perspective with solution-focused brief therapy, humanistic and cognitive behavioral therapy.

I am always open to feedback from my clients, regarding the sessions, what they find to be helpful/unhelpful, progress, switching counselors, questions, etc. I encourage honesty and transparency as this will help to improve rapport and the therapeutic alliance. I believe in having and maintaining appropriate boundaries within the therapeutic alliance between clients and I.

It takes courage to seek help and a willingness to make changes that pave the way to a happier, more fulfilling life. We will work together as a team to address and work on what is most important to you. You don't have to do this alone.

I look forward to serving you!

My working hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 am to 3.30 pm and Friday 8 am to 11.30 am, central standard time. I am accessible through messaging at all times of day and generally respond back within 24 hours, Monday through Friday. I also respond to messages over the weekend. I am slower to respond to messages during sessions/back to back sessions, holidays, and in the evenings. The counseling sessions are only 30 minutes long, so no need to worry about the session taking up too much of your time! I can only see members who live in the state of Missouri.
