My mission is to provide clients of all ages with a secure, nonjudgmental therapeutic space where they can truly feel heard, respected, & empowered. I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, a Certified EMDR Therapist, a Sandtray Therapist, & an Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) Master Education Trainer. I’m also an EMDR Consulting EMDR Basic Trainer in Training & EMDR Coach. I am currently licensed to practice in three states including Illinois, Missouri, & Indiana. I’ve been in the Mental Health field for over 10 years & I’ve successfully treated clients with a variety of presenting issues. I’m passionate about helping clients overcome traumatic experiences, achieve their treatment goals, & "live their best lives!” I believe clients want a therapist who is genuine, compassionate, trustworthy, smart, & funny. They want a therapist who cares about them, wants to hear their story, supports them through the "hard" stuff, teaches them tools to solve problems on their own, celebrates their wins, & helps with accountability when needed. If this sounds like you, let's talk.

I specialize in trauma-informed therapy for kids, teens, adults, couples, families, & groups. I utilize clinical practices that are culturally sensitive & evidence-base. I have a lot of experience working with First Responders including Military, Firefighters, EMTs, Police, Doctors, Nurses, & Therapists. In addition, I have experience working in a variety of treatment settings including providing in home & office-based therapy for children & families involved with the Department of Child Services (DCS) &/or Juvenile probation. I utilize an integrated approach including talk therapy, EMDR, & Sandtray Therapy. In addition to doing therapy, I am passionate about educating clinicians & the public about Mental Health related topics. You can check out my Youtube channel (2) Jessica Crunkleton LMFT, LCPC, LMHC, CADAC, EMDR - YouTube to see the various Mental Health topics I cover.

Finding the right therapist to work with can be so challenging, but you &/or your loved one is 100% worth the investment! There's so much more I'd like to say, but I'd rather us just talk & get to know each other a little better. I offer a free 15-minute consultation call so that we can see if we're a good fit. If you're interested, contact me. I hope to hear from you soon.
