Jennifer Kruse, LMHC

Jennifer has worked in the mental health field for 28 years and has been a Licensed Mental Health Counselor for over 18 years.  She earned her Bachelor's degree with a double major in Psychology and Sociology from Iowa Wesleyan College and earned Master of Arts degree in Counselor Rehabilitation at the University of Iowa. 

 

Her work experience includes working with primarily adolescents and adults.  She is a member of the American Counseling Association and the American Mental Health Counselors Association as well as the local Iowa chapter.

My counseling approach is person-centered, meeting people where they are, learning the goals they have for themselves and working towards those goals. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to work on how our thoughts and emotions affect our actions. I enjoy working with people, am honored to be a part of their journey, helping them recognize their strengths and building supports. Over the years, I have learned valuable life lessons from those I have worked with and want to help people find more contentment in their lives and relationships.
 

In my free time, I love to spend time with family and friends, reading, being outdoors, walking, biking, trying new recipes and carrying out daily self-care.
