Meet Jeremy “Jerem” Ernst

M.Ed., LPC, CADC I

Location: Salem

Jerem received a Master’s of Education from Ohio University and he holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, with a minor in Religious Studies, from The Ohio State University. His formal training is in clinical mental health counseling and treatment. As a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2005, Jerem has worked with individuals, couples, families and groups in a variety of settings. He moved to Oregon in 2013 and loves his new home state. Jerem believes in and helps to foster a collaborative therapeutic relationship based on compassion, trust, and humility. He has a passion for social and environmental justice. And, as an ever-aspiring multicultural counselor, Jerem enjoys working with individuals from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and lifestyles. Although he has primarily worked in community mental health settings, Jerem has also worked for non-profits such as the Urban League where he assisted adjudicated youth in organizing restorative justice projects. He is attuned to complex trauma stemming from not only personal injury but also from ecological, racial, and intergenerational sources. He recognizes that addictive behavior is often an attempt to cope, connect, and heal trauma. For treatment in general, Jerem employs an eclectic and integrated mix of best practice models that includes mindfulness-based practices, substance use harm reduction, internal family systems, and cognitive-behavioral changes designed to last. As a psycho-spiritual counselor with a holistic perspective, he studies and works with mind, body, spirit connections; he sees his clients as full of potential and creativity. Deeply interested in the emerging field of psilocybin assisted therapy, Jerem is happy to work with clients around integrating their own personal journeys. He agrees with Humanistic Psychologist Carl Rogers who said, “Individuals have within themselves vast resources for self-understanding and for altering their self-concepts, basic attitudes, and self-directed behavior. .”
