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.

I was a wilderness therapy field instructor for 4 1/2 years, after SNBR I moved into a Director of Operations role with Calo Young Adults.

Andrew Parks, BS Neurotherapy Technician
Andrew Parks has worked in residential treatment for over 2.5 years since graduating from Evangel University in Springfield, MO. After working at his first facility for around a year, he heard about Calo and its revolutionary treatment model. His excitement for effective therapy and changing lives lead him to apply, and he moved to Lake Ozark whenever he was offered the job. After working on the floor with students for over a year, he was promoted to his current position as a Neurotherapy Technician. His passion for knowledge, emotional health, and people gives him the impetus to work hard to help stabilize students and provide them with lasting hope.

Prior to joining the Calo family in January of 2017, Jason Lay was a practicing acupuncturist and bodyworker in St. Louis, MO. Born and raised in Baltimore, MD, Jason has had a lifelong interest in health and wellness, particularly in mindfulness meditation, which lead to his studies in eastern philosophy and psychology at St. Mary's College of Maryland, and abroad in Thailand. After college, he trained as a massage therapist, and then in 2009, began his Master's program in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. Jason is a founding member of the St. Louis Trauma-Informed Network, and has volunteered his services at the Center for Survivors of Torture and War Trauma, a non-profit serving the mental health needs of St. Louis' large immigrant and refugee populations.
