Jessica Kraemer, MA, LPC
EMDR Therapy in St. Louis
Like so many counselors before me, I was drawn towards this career due to my own lived experiences and the experiences of those around me growing up. I saw the hidden pain that people endured whether from traumatic experiences, chemical imbalances, difficult home lives, or the negative internal messages they couldn’t stop telling themselves. So many people suffer alone and I wanted to be in a profession that helped ease that burden.
After graduating from Saint Louis University with a bachelors in Psychology and certificate in Women’s Studies, I obtained my masters in Counseling from Webster University, one of only two CACREP accredited programs for Clinical Mental Health in the St. Louis area.
I completed my graduate internship at Alsana (formerly Castlewood Treatment Center) where I worked with clients with eating disorders and co-occurring issues in the PHP and IOP programs. After graduation I went on to become a primary therapist at Alsana’s residential treatment program furthering my work with the eating disorder and trauma survivor community. When not helping clients at Psychological Services of St. Louis (the group practice to which I belong), I am working at the psychiatric inpatient units of Mercy Hospital St. Louis and Mercy Hospital South where I provide services to adult, adolescent, and geriatric populations.
I have received training for EMDR therapy and use that in combination with CBT, attachment theory, and family systems theory to help adult individuals, adolescents, couples, and families work through the issues that have been holding them back from the life they want. I work with clients who face a range of issues including: eating disorders, trauma, body image, anger issues, self-hate, grief, anxiety, depression, and family/relational issues.
