Madeline Cramer, MA, PLPC

Nido Qubein once said, “your present circumstances don’t determine where you go; they merely determine where you start.” Sometimes individuals are not coping, or just need someone to talk to who is nonjudgmental and understanding. I am passionate about making a difference in the world. Helping my clients with their mental health and being an advocate is my way to do this.

I believe in a strengths-focused counseling approach, as well as a cognitive-behavioral theoretical orientation. This means that I consider a connection between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Individuals have the ability to learn and grow despite difficult circumstances. Counselors help give people the tools they need to help overcome obstacles. I graduated from UMKC’s Masters of Counseling and Guidance in their mental health track December 2016. Several trainings I have been to are in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), mental health and the LGBTQ community, suicide, grief counseling, and art therapy. At UMKC, special classes I have taken include substance abuse, family therapy, and sexual counseling. In marriage counseling, I utilize Gottman Therapy, a practical and evidence-based theoretical approach, providing practical strategies for conflict resolution, improving communication, and improving connection. Before joining New Hope Counseling, I was a therapy intern at a domestic violence shelter. I am a member of ACA.

My areas of practice include:

  • EMDR
  • Eating disorders
  • Domestic violence and trauma
  • Chronic pain
  • Anxiety disorders including PTSD
  • Body-focused repetitive behaviors such as skin-picking, etc.
  • Marriage and couples’ counseling

Madeline’s fees are $100 for the initial session and $75 thereafter. Madeline is not on insurance panels. She is supervised by Ivy Pellerito, MA, LPC, NCC (MO2004023896)


Madeline sees clients  in Lee’s Summit, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays; and Fridays in Sedalia.
