LICENSED PROFESSIONAL COUNSELING
Mia Snyder is a licensed professional counselor with a private practice in Columbia, Missouri. Mia completed a Masters Degree in Counseling Education from Stephens College in August 2013. She also holds a Master of Education and Bachelor of Science in Education from the University of Missouri. Mia earned her professional license working as counselor/case manager with female adolescents in residential treatment and providing free mental health counseling to the general population at the Wakonda Center, beginning in 2011. In 2016, Mia began two years of work providing counseling in residential addiction treatment and started growing Mia K Snyder, LPC, her private practice. Her desire is to help people feel better, suffer less, lead more fulfilling and productive lives, and enjoy deeper and more intimately connected relationships. She believes that when you enter her office and you agree to work together, the operative word is together. You are a team. Working together in therapy, she tries to help her clients solve problems with the same sincerity and integrity with which you come to her for help.
Her philosophy and orientation as a licensed professional counselor is grounded in attachment and trauma with a biophysiological approach and has been informed by her education, her own life experiences, and most significantly, by the feedback she has received (and continues to welcome) in working with her clients.
With many years as a mental health professional and a deep commitment to her own healing and growth, she offers a space for therapeutic work that is both well-informed by research and training, and personally connected. In working with her, you will find a wholly accepting and supportive space to achieve the change you want.
