Hello. I have been working with people as a Licensed Professional Counselor and as an Occupational Therapist for the past 26 years. This means that I not only believe in the healing properties that can be found with sharing thoughts and feelings in a supportive, non-judgmental relationship, but I also strongly believe in the importance of integrating purposeful activity into our work together. I like to foster an environment in which we can work together as a team. YOU are the expert in your life, and therapy can help you to make the best decisions to get your life back on track. To this end, I will often give people assignments to complete between sessions. It might be something to read, an exercise designed to get you thinking, or a task to get you to examine your thoughts or feelings. It all depends on what goals you have chosen to work on during our time together.
Some specific areas I can help you with are feelings of depression and anxiety, managing stress, suicidal thoughts, substance abuse concerns, difficulty with your career or relationships, chronic heath issues, caregiver burnout or stress, issues related to a history of abuse, mood swings, low self esteem and grief.
I understand how very difficult it can be to reach out for help and am so glad that you have made this positive step for yourself. I would very much like the opportunity to make this journey with you.

Best gift I ever gave myself! I really look forward to my sessions with Jean. She is very knowledgeable in the areas I need help with and beyond. She is so easy to talk to and offers such great advise. Couldn’t have been paired with anyone better in my opinion. I recommend if your struggling - do yourself a favor and ask for help from this site
Jean is very empathetic and knowledgeable about my specific needs. She’s an excellent listener and easy to talk to.
Jean is truly a delightful counselor! She listens well, provides good feedback and advice, and awesome, inspirational quotes. My emotions, outlook, and resulting efficiency working, have really improved with her assistance!
Jean is an amazing therapist. She is very open and approachable and makes you feel comfortable even when working through difficult topics. I would recommend her to anyone and am very happy that we are working together!
Jean is incredibly understanding. My mind is a whirlwind, but she helps me feel more sane and more comfortable with taking steps forward. This is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!
Jean has been very compassionate and helpful
I have been working with Jean for the last month and in the short amount of time working together, I feel like she asks me challenging questions that get me thinking! She's already challenging me and as someone that has been to therapy throughout my entire life, having someone challenge me in the first month is quite impressive. She's down to earth, personable (not all therapists are!) and attentive. I would recommend Jean full heartedly!
I feel herd and very comfortable with her.
