Jackie Kamradt, PhD-Telehealth
Special interest areas include mind/body integration, holistic mental healthcare, attentional/concentration issues, anxiety related issues, and womens' health.
My name is Jackie Kamradt, and I’m a licensed clinical psychologist. I’m also a certified yoga instructor and passionate about integrating mind-body techniques (e.g., breathing exercises, relaxation, meditation) when relevant to our work together. As a psychologist and yoga instructor, I am committed to helping you get out of your “analysis paralysis” and into your life. I want to help you to discover your freedom in how you relate to your mind (and body!) and share the secret your brain has been keeping from you your whole life: Your thoughts are not your boss. I grew up in the Chicago area and have lived in Iowa since my undergraduate years at the University of Iowa. After graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Sociology/minor in psychology, I worked as a researcher studying ADHD across the lifespan, with an emphasis on concentration/attentional issues in adulthood. Soon after, I began my graduate studies at Iowa, where I completed my PhD in clinical psychology in 2021. I have completed advanced training in psychotherapy and psychological interventions at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, the Iowa City Veterans Affairs Clinic, and the Jesse Brown Veterans Affairs Clinic in Chicago, IL. I have experience and training in a variety of evidenced based psychotherapies (e.g., Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Prolonged Exposure (PE), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and complementary treatments (e.g., meditation, mindfulness, yoga), which informs my holistic and tailored approach when working with clients. I aim to help not only reduce the symptoms interfering with their life, but also help people optimize their mental health/well-being to live a life aligned with how they want to be in the world. I have extensive experience working with veterans, mothers in the perinatal period, and individuals with ADHD (and attentional/concentration issues in general), anxiety, OCD, depression, grief/loss, trauma, health conditions, and relationship struggles and life transitions. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, practicing yoga, and eating chocolate.
