I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with 18 years experience. My degrees and license have afforded me the opportunity to work with individuals, couples, adolescents, children and families. I have worked with clients who were experiencing numerous issues including but not limited to family dynamic issues, marital issues, couples issues, intimacy issues, infidelity, infertility, parenting issues, communication barriers, career choices, anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD, grief, self esteem issues, self harm, disordered eating, substance abuse, trauma, PTSD, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, divorce and co parenting.
My counseling style is best described as warm, direct, collaborative, empowering and TRANSFORMATIVE. If we work together we will absolutely create the change that you have been seeking in your life. Typically I draw from counseling styles rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Family Therapy. However, Therapy is not a “one size fits all” practice, in fact it is just the opposite and this is why most often I will utilize Eclectic Therapy. I will adjust my counseling methods based on your issues in each session and I will also adjust them as you begin to change and grow. A skilled Therapist needs to be fluid in their approach because change is not stagnant.
I am already proud of you for taking the first step in your journey to peace and happiness. If you chose me as your Therapist I want you to know that I will always respect your journey and the vulnerability and bravery that it takes to create lasting change in your life. I would be honored to assist you on your path and I look forward to our work together.
Be well, Jannine

I found Jannine a year ago during a time of immense challenges that all descended on me at once. I was at a moment where I was questioning my faith in everything. Jannine enabled me to say what I needed to out load and take the actions required to deal with the circumstances. I have grown into aspects of my true self while building on my life path. Jannine has allowed me to see that was possible and I can not imagine not having her in my life to rely on. Her kindness, intelligence and non judgmental acceptance are a joy to experience each week. I look forward to our sessions with happiness and discovered that each time I am re-energized and focused to get what I want. Jannine has a way of making you understand what you already know but maybe were afraid to admit. Her unwavering support and beautiful perspective enabled me to find fulfillment in aspects of my life that I might of never fully discovered. Each week I know I am truly blessed to have found Jannine and have her in my life.
