LifeWork strives to remain the premier provider of Dialectical Behavior Therapy in greater St. Louis and surrounding areas. We place the utmost importance on our core values: quality, integrity, compassion, and support.  These values are demonstrated amongst our staff, in our programs, to the clients we serve, and in our work within the community.  I believe that our supportive culture is what sets us apart from other organizations.  My mission as LifeWork’s Executive Director is to lead with fairness, integrity, and humility.  I want to place an emphasis on growth for our clinicians, the clients we serve, and our community presence. 

Jessica Traner, LPC, Executive Director

Based on evidence of what works, we will relentlessly assist our clients to build lives worth living and more fulfilling. We will partner with each client to create and implement effective solutions to the problems of life.


LifeWork is committed to providing the highest quality services in our power.  Dedication to quality interactions, products, and services has made us a leader in providing DBT in the greater St. Louis area.  It is our adherence to quality that keeps each of us striving to become better, both professionally and personally


 Our desire to support individuals means you will likely feel as if you have an entire team on your side.  We strive to show support to our clients and colleagues alike.  Support varies for different people and at different times.  Our commitment to support means we keep coming back to giving and asking for what is required.


At LifeWork, we will sit with you in your pain and assist in transforming it.  If you are suffering, we will come alongside and join you, before assisting you to move through it.  The only way out of suffering is through, and we are committed to providing compassion to each of our clients. 


We strive to be as authentic and forthright as possible in each of our dealings with our clients and within the organization.  

We welcome your feedback about how we are displaying our values and whether we are falling short in embodying these values.
