Cecily Mitchell, LPC
Cecily is a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri. She has served as a therapist in residential treatment, outpatient, and as a therapeutic placement consultant. Cecily is passionate about helping clients and their families discover their patterns in efforts to become more healthy and experiencing more joyful lives.
Over the course of Cecily’s career she has specialized in working with adolescents and young adults with developmental trauma, most often relinquishment from birth parents (or also known as adoption but I am a firm believer the adoption itself isn’t the issue).
Cecily refined her clinical skills in developing a curriculum for implementing family intensives and launched a family intensive program many years ago. Through this program, she served over 150 families and found that, though similar, not one single family was like the other. Continued personal and professional growth is so important to Cecily, and she is often digging in on what the latest happenings are in the mental health field, or educating herself further on something to best serve her clients.
Cecily is trained in Brainspotting, EMDR, and Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, and the Adult Attachment Inventory. She holds a Masters degree in Counseling from the University of Missouri – Kansas City, and a Bachelor’s degree in psychology from Drury University.
Outside of work, Cecily has three children who keep her very busy with all of their activities and their big personalities. Cecily and her husband have been together since they were freshman in college and somehow he still manages to keep Cecily on her toes. Together, they have a small farm in southwest Missouri with cows, chickens, cats and a dog. Cecily can often be found running off to grab a quick workout, spending time with friends, or renovating some room in her house, when she isn’t managing something for her own kiddos first. Cecily enjoys traveling to the beach both with and without her children and pretty much the day she gets home from each trip she begins planning the next one! Cecily finds solace in being creative, moving her body, and curling up with a good book when time allows.
