Scott Kuenneke MS, LPC, BCN

CALO Program's Director of Neurotherapies

Scott Kuenneke joined our team in March 2015 and began comprehensively increasing the capabilities of our NFB department. Scott was born and raised in the river city of St. Louis Missouri. He has always been interested in helping others and being an active participant in people’s transformation and change. His undergraduate degree was in psychology and religious studies from Webster University, where he spent most of his time learning about the biological underpinnings of mental health along with eastern practices of meditation and philosophy. Once he completed his Bachelor’s degree he decided to take a position with the Division of Youth Services (DYS) where he began to develop an interest in helping young kids overcome their challenges. The next step Scott took was to take a position at a clinic in St. Louis that specialized in biofeedback practices including neurofeedback and quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG). For 8 years he trained and studied the art and science of neurofeedback training and qEEG diagnostics. In 2009 he became a Board Certified Neurotherapist from the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA). Later he finished a Master’s of Science in Mental health counseling from Walden University. This accomplishment led him to his mental health counseling training and professional experience which includes work at The St. Louis Family Courts Juvenile Detention Center and Private Practice in the St. Louis Wellness Center. Scott is very excited about being at CALO, and having the opportunity to help teens grow and develop in the healthiest ways possible. In his free time he enjoys mountain biking in the woods, and connecting with friends and family.
