About the Institute

The Institute of Intrapersonal Development was born much like most, out of necessity, for I noticed so many in search of connection, acceptance, and validation.

Delving deeper, I discovered that those who so desperately yearned for said constructs had yet to find them within; neither did they understand how they came to be, as it relates to “self”,  nor the schema by which they operated.  It is for purposes such as these that the Institute of Intrapersonal Development exists, consequently it is our mission to:

  • Introduce and examine the way in which one’s Internal Working Model
    is developed

  • Provide psychoeducation surrounding the self and how it is formed

  • Introduce and explain Bowlby & Ainsworth’s attachment styles

  • Illuminate the interplay between attachment styles and relational patterns

Jerisha LaCrae, M. Ed., LPC, NCC

Hello, by way of introduction, I'm Jerisha LaCrae.  I am a psychotherapist who was educated at the CACREP accredited community counseling program housed at the University of Missouri; thus, I am both a Board-Certified and Licensed Professional Counselor.  I hold a bachelor's degree in communications and a master's degree in a community counseling.  I have a wealth of credentials, however I most value my lived experiences for they allow me to relate to people from the very environments from which I came.  I serve as an example of what can be accomplished despite the limited expectations of society, which aids in connecting with clients on an authentic level.
