Hi! My name's Jemika Gardner and I'm a Licensed Master Social Worker. I earned my degree from the University of Missouri (Go Tigers!).
As a Clinical Therapist. my passion is working with kids, teens, college students, and emerging professionals treating a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, anger issues, oppositional defiant disorder, self-esteem, women's issues, and grief and loss. Additional areas of interest include postpartum and borderline personality disorder. My treatment style is a combination of CBT, DBT, CPT, play therapy, person-centered therapy.
I am originally from the Chicago area. I am the oldest of 4 and my family is super important to me so I like to travel home to visit as often as possible. I am a dog mom to my sweet shih tzu Belle (I refuse to admit how spoiled she is). When I am not working I am usually crafting, reading, re-watching shows I've seen a billion times, or hanging out with friends and family.

A little more about me...
I have lived in Columbia for the last four years. I grew up in central Missouri, so I was excited to come back home! I have a dog named Maggie who I adore. I recently started a blog/website called The Realistic Eats (check it out at therealisticeats.com). I enjoy going to hot yoga, biking on the MKT, red wine while cooking, and going for daily walks!

Together, you will identify meals YOU would love to learn how to make at home. You might choose meals which are less complex and fast to pull together such as pasta, tacos, fish, burgers or steak. OR you might choose slightly more complex meals which take a little more time such as ham, roast, duck, or ribs. Regardless, by the end you will have created a fantastic meal you can be proud of!

Maybe therapy hasn’t worked for you in the past. Maybe you got the feeling you were just talking and talking and not getting anywhere. With years of experience working with a variety of issues, I have developed a style of pulling back the curtain on therapy and partnering with my clients to achieve their goals. If you’re ready to make a change, I’m ready to walk with you.
I have been working as a licensed clinician in Columbia since 2014. In my years of experience, I have worked with clients from all walks of life with all kinds of emotional, social, financial, and spiritual goals. I have learned that no one type of therapist or therapy is a one-size-fits-all, which is why I take a collaborative approach with my clients.
