Craig F Politte M.A. LPC

Craig Pollite Life CounselorI am a former Police Officer of nearly 10 yrs experience. My duties as a Police Officer included Field Training Officer, Narcotics Detective, Evidence technician, Detective and Corporal. I believe my experience as a Police officer greatly helped in my knowledge and understanding of mental health and human behavior.

It quickly taught me, what appears on the surface is quite different than what's on the inside. It also taught me how our environment, experiences, genetics and culture play a role in our development and behavior. When ever I made an arrest or handled a call, I knew there was a reason for the particular person(s) behavior and choice and I wanted to be more of a help.

This thought was the impetus for my goal to become a Mental Health Therapist. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Maryville University and my Master of Arts in Counseling and Certificate for Psychological Examiner from Missouri Baptist University. I specialize in providing therapy to children, adolescents, young adults and adults who are experiencing Anxiety/OCD, Depression, Grief/Loss, Trauma/Abuse and Computer/Electronic Addiction. I also work with children and teens on social skills, self-esteem and problem solving skills. My professional experience also includes working as a school counselor on both the elementary and secondary levels.
