About Me

Hello-

I have been a licensed LPC counselor in Missouri for the past five years. Working with individuals, families, and couples has provided me with the ability to assist individuals throughout many aspects of their lives. I have had the privilege of providing indivdiual therapy to many adolescents throughout my career and have assisted them with managing depression, anxiety, family concerns, substance abuse concerns, and many other topics.

I have had training in DBT, CBT, EMD-R and continue to grow my therapeutic knowledge through self-training and through clinical training. I have had the pleasure of working in many different fields throughout my life time and feel this has provided me with the ability to look at situations from a variety of different perspectives.

I firmly believe that when a person makes the choice to make changes in their life then they are on the path to becoming who they want to be.

I look forward to hearing from you and assisting you with determining who you want to be.

Thank you,

Savannah Harness, LPC

Counseling is still early and have only talked with her twice but she is great at listening and asks the engaging questions that need to be addressed. She listens and responds perfectly

I can’t even begin to express how much help I got from Savannah. Not only an excellent counselor but a wonderful person. Very kind and sympathetic. Every week I looked forward to our sessions. I had my cry sessions but then I had a few laugh sessions. Anyone who has her for a counselor would be all the better for it.
She gave me a lot of every day tools to work with which I greatly appreciated. Thank you Savannah for all of your help. I will never forget you.

Savannah does an awesome job or hearing me out as well as providing action steps to implement what I’m learning through this process.

Written by H.A. on Aug 22, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 1 month

It was nice at first, but after scheduling a session, I felt kinda weird. The call seemed very unprofessional, and I could hear her microwaving something, and I made me feel like she wasn't really paying much mind.

Written by M.O. on Aug 20, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

Savannah made me feel very comfortable from the get go. Even after only a few sessions, I truly feel she has helped me learn and grow. She makes therapy attainable and accessible, helping me focus on my personal goals. During a difficult time she has been a wonderful source of support and guidance. I appreciate her calm, kind demeanor, and am grateful I started therapy with her.

Savannah has been a great help in helping me to understand just what is truly going on with me. I’ve recommended her and this app to friends and colleagues at work sense starting with teen counseling

Written by R.I. on Jul 14, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I've only been on two sessions but it's been a great start. I really like interacting during the week before my next session keeps me proactive and gives me hope.

Savannah is such a great listener. She’s really professional, yet friendly. She has helped me cope with my situation a lot. She’s excellent, patient and non judgmental. I found the right therapist. I would recommend her to anyone.

Savannah was an amazing Councillor. She is incredibly welcoming and will listen in detail to whatever issue that you might be having. She also is always available and will always find ways to assist you in any specific issue you might be experiencing
I absolutely recommend her for anyone seeking counselling through teen counseling

I was in a clusterdump of problems mental and literal. Through teen counseling I found a counselor who helped me set realistic goals and navigate through my anxiety so I could solve my issues.

Written by P.R. on Jun 27, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and trauma and abuse

She's just really good at her job, I feel so comfortable talking to her about anything that sometimes I forget I'm in a session.

Written by M.I. on Jun 14, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

I've just started sessions with Savannah and already am starting to feel better. It was very easy to open up to her, she is kind, approachable, and very easy to talk to. Savannah makes a point of checking-in between sessions if she knows something important is happening throughout the week, and often understands my fears that I have trouble putting into words as I'm working to articulate them. She has a calming presence and her advice is helpful, uplifting and much appreciated. I'm really grateful teen counseling matched me with Savannah.

Written by L.I. on Jun 07, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

Savannah is very warm and responsively helpful. Her therapy session is always soothing and helped me make through a lot of difficult days. I'm still suffering. But I will keep trying, with the help from lovely Savannah.

Written by J.O. on Jun 07, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 1 month

After initially being matched with a counselor who just wasn't working for us (slow to respond and not great about scheduling sessions), we've been thrilled with Savannah. She's really helped our son make it to the final weeks of the school year in a much better position than he had been. He feels more confident in his abilities, feels less stressed, is communicating more clearly, and is more aware of how his decisions impact his performance, and also how they impact others. She's also been so helpful to us as parents, just as a sounding board, and in getting us to think about our own choices. Really pleased.

Savannah is really nice and understanding!! She's easy to chat and we had some good laughs together! We just started councelling so I can't really say about long term yet, but so far so good

Savannah is amazing and a great person to talk to

Written by A.D. on Apr 20, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Savannah is my second therapist so I was initially unsure on how this would work, if I’d feel comfortable opening up to her. The first meeting was usual but things got better. She was quick in her response and I appreciated that she’d check in. She is supportive and posiitve which really helped with increasing the comfort level to confide and get to the bottom of things. We set personal goals and she empowers me to work on next steps together. At any time when I took a few steps back, she’s kind, empathetic and encouraging.

Savannah is a great listener and made me feel comfortable with her relaxed, kind energy to speak openly. My time spent talking to Savannah helped me feel happier in myself. Thank you!

Written by K.A. on Mar 30, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, lgbt, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and anger management

I can highly recommend Savannah to anyone. There is not enough word to describe how supportive and kind she is.
Our sessions are very refreshing and helping me to cope with everyday struggles.
She understands me and encourage to complete activities which are helping me to deal with my anxiety. She never judges and always listens to all my problems.
Don't know how I would survive last couple months without her.

Written by S.O. on Mar 22, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd

Savannah is truly wonderful. Over the years I have built up so many walls and I am the type that feels very anxious to open up to anyone and be vulnerable. She always checked up on me to make sure I am okay and offers her services to me. She is very patient with me and very respectful of what I have to say. I can't recommend Savannah enough because she genuinely tries her best to make sure that I am doing alright and encourages me to the right path.

Written by B.L. on Mar 20, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, eating disorders, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

I’ve been working with Savannah for a couple of months now and she is just amazing. The stability and strength I’ve gained both mentally and emotionally is fantastic, I’m at a place I never thought I would be. Savannah is a very caring and open minded individual who shows great empathy when working with me, I can speak freely without the fear of being judged. I always know that regardless of any situation or rant that I need; I can turn to Savannah!

Written by A.N. on Mar 15, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I've been working with Savannah for a few weeks and she's wonderful. She responds really quickly to my messages and checks in if she hasn't heard from me in a few days. She gives me a lot of practical advice to help me manage my anxiety and organize my thoughts and is super kind, supportive and understanding.

Written by D.E. on Mar 02, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 1 month

I have already recommended teen counselling to friends who also have struggling teens in need of support and guidance.
I asked my daughter how she was finding teen counselling? Her reply was reassuring, her counsellor encourages her to talk, because she is not just a counsellor she is a therapist, she is there whenever she needs her via messenger chat, responds quickly and has weekly 1-2-1 messenger chats.
I would recommend this service to any concerned parents struggling to support their teenager.

Savannah Harness is absolutely amazing. I was so hesitant to try therapy for the first time, especially with it being online, but she has made me feel comfortable and heard. She responds quickly and to every single one of my concerns. It has only been a couple of weeks and I already feel so much better talking to her. Thank you Savannah.

Written by S.I. on Feb 10, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, and self esteem

Savannah is very thoughtful and checks in on you throughout the week. Doing EMDR has already had incredible changes to my life and dealing with problematic memories. She also makes sure to take you through any sensations through breathing exercises which is very helpful. I would really recommend her as a therapist!

She is a very good listener. Understands cultural diversity in reference to respect, integrity and morals. She provided very useful resources which I benefited a lot and my siblings. I will keep her as the family therapist.

Savannah is great, she always answers my long messages and never forgets to comment on each part. She makes me consider things I never even thought of before. I can feel my confidence growing.

Savannah is a great listener. She’s very easy to talk to about any issues you’re having and she provides excellent advice.

Savannah is a great therapist. She's a good listener, understanding and offers very good feedback based on what you've said, even despite the topics being very tricky. I would wholeheartedly recommend her

Written by V.I. on Jan 18, 2021 after counseling with Savannah for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, eating disorders, and self esteem

It's early days but Savannah has been an asset to the teen counseling platform so far. She's responsive, flexible, easily engenders trust and she feels both authentic and relateable. The tasks she sets are small enough to feel achieveable and big enough to get you moving in the right direction.
