About me

Hi, my name is Jeannie. I am a licensed clinical social worker who has worked in health care for many years. Throughout my professional journey, I have developed relationships with people during some of the most vulnerable and difficult periods of life: partnering with clients through pain, suffering, loss, illness, addiction,
depression and anxiety. We've all been there and know that it is CRITICAL to be HEARD, UNDERSTOOD and get the ADVOCACY that we need. I would be honored to partner with YOU as you are navigating challenges in your life. Whether you are grieving a loss, struggling with depression and/or anxiety, need support making some positive changes in your life or are looking for some ideas on how to handle your stress, please feel free to reach out! I am very passionate about becoming the best person I can be, and would love to help you strive for your FULL POTENTIAL as well,

In my spare time, I enjoy spending life with my family and friends. Thank you for taking the time to read about me. Now let me leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Theodore Roosevelt........"Believe you can and you're half way there." Looking forward to hearing from you.

She's been so helpful and kind. I feel like I've known her for years. She's been a big help in dealing with the loss of my dad. So glad I've met her.

Jean is an amazing therapist. She cares, she listens, she’s genuine. In 20+ years of looking for the right therapist, I finally found her. I’m really lucky to have Jean as my therapist.

I've never met with a therapist before & I c cannot believe how incredibly knowledgeable, understanding & kind she is. She not o my listens well but has the best recommendations for my lifestyle to help me on my journey thru this life. She has pulled me out of one of my darkest moments by understanding whi I am without the intention of changing me just enhancing & bringing out what I am already capable of without knowing it. I cannot give a higher recommendation or more praise to someone who can simply guide you when you think you are completely lost & cannot find your way. Thank you Jeannie. You have given me what I needed when I said ...I'm not ok & I need help.
