About me

I am Dr. Jerome Anderson, an advanced-practice clinical professional offering a wide range of clinical services. I am licensed as a clinical social worker (LCSW), nationally board certified as an advanced practice clinical social worker (BCD), certified as a clinical forensic social worker/psychotherapist (CCFC), and certified as a correctional health care professional (CCHP).

As such, I provide services focused on severe and persistent mental health concerns as well as mild mental health conditions, such as professional counseling, psychotherapy, and consulting services for clinical assistance in mental health symptom management, behavioral redirection, life-style adjustment, and crisis abatement. All therapeutic approaches are scientific & evidence based. The treatment modalities utilized but not limited to are cognitive-behavioral principles and strengths-based theory. I am licensed to provide these services in the states of Missouri and Illinois.

Most recently, I worked as a clinical psychotherapist, Behavioral Health Consultant, and Flight Commander of Behavioral Health Services for the United States Department of the Air Force. I also have a history of working as a criminal justice clinician and director of the mental health departments within large metropolitan jails and correctional facilities. I have also worked in maximum-security prisons as a forensic clinician. In all capacities, I have experience evaluating, diagnosing, and developing appropriate treatment goals. I also have experiences working with the judicial systems where I have developed and implemented recommendations based on patient competency levels as well as led the therapeutic treatment process. Along with this experience, I have worked as a full-time law enforcement officer.

Lastly, I am an Active Duty Commissioned Officer (Lieutenant Commander) in the United States Public Health Services Commissioned Corp (USPHS-CC) where I operate as the Subject Matter Expert (SME) and Coordinator for Employee Relations/Officer Advocacy for USPHS.

I look forward to working with you!!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Dr. Jerome Anderson. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

It is so wonderful to find a therapist like Dr. Anderson who I share a general love of comics, video games, TV, and movies with. It's definitely a nice way to end sessions talking about new things we've come across. During sessions, I always feel welcomed, heard, and understood. I am more than happy to recommend him or BetterHelp to a friend in need.

Dr. Anderson is an answered prayer! I have been contemplating therapy for so long and have always hit dead ends with insurance, scheduling, and fit. I finally decided I just need to find a therapist that met my personal needs without going through insurance, and I'm so glad I did. Dr. Anderson is supportive and a wealth of knowledge in a broad array of topics. He's become a household name in my home and provides me lessons that I not only personally practice but share with my family for us to grow. He is a wonderful human being, and I feel so fortunate to have him as my provider.

He’s the best

Written on Jun 12, 2022 after therapy with Jerome for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Dr. A has been amazingly supportive as I've been making and going through huge changes in my life, including giving sound advice for what would be best for me to approach these changes. I have been going through some grief with the loss of a father figure in my life and he has helped me combat and cope with the thoughts have come with it. With some big changes coming up, he has constantly made sure I am not only prepared, but making sure the decisions I am making are in my best interest. I highly recommend him as not only is he great counsel, but also someone that is great when you just need to talk out your thoughts.
