About me

I am a trauma-informed licensed therapist with ten years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families. One of my greatest joys as a therapist is working with members of diverse communities to be the best version of themselves. I believe that we can best heal and grow through emotional intelligence, self-mastery, and understanding of how our cultural background and life circumstances have impacted our life outlook.

I have worked with individuals and families addressing depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, parenting problems, as well as identity and career challenges. I have also helped many people over the years establish a stronger sense of self-esteem and life direction. I am trained in trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), as well as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR).

Helping individuals heal from the impact of trauma, as well as empowering individuals who have experienced physical, emotional, and psychological abuse is one of my greatest passions. I have also worked with countless couples and families to improve relationship dynamics through trust-building and communication improvement.

My counseling approach is strengths-based and person-centered. I believe in treating everyone with unconditional positive regard and I strongly oppose stigmatizing labels. I employ the use of pragmatic problem-solving modalities, and will tailor our sessions and treatment plan to best address your personalized needs.

I am here to assist you in addressing your self-identified needs related to living your best life. I look forward to working with you!

I've been in therapy on and off for most of my life, and Jeanetta is easily the best therapist I've ever had. Her communication style is compassionate and refreshingly honest, and her knowledge of multiple therapeutic modalities means we can target my issues from lots of angles. She's culturally competent and attuned to the issues of both racial and sexual minorities, and I genuinely feel like I'm safe and in great hands with her. Working with Jeanetta has changed my life and relationships for the better, and I feel more hope for my future now than I have in years.
