About Me

I am a mental health professional licensed in Alabama with ten years of experience working as a therapist and licensed clinical social worker. 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).

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 realist problem-solving modalities, and will tailor our sessions and treatment plan to meet 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 feel incredibly blessed to have Jeanetta as my therapist. She is brilliant, compassionate, honest, and radiant. She always offers great insight and thoughtful feedback. Jeanetta has helped me to work through deep rooted issues and work towards my goals by prompting reflection and implementing new practices. She makes the impossible feel possible. With her knowledge and expertise, I am on the journey to becoming the person I have always aspired to be. I cannot thank her enough. Thank you so much, Jeanetta.

Jeanetta has been such a great help already, and I’ve only had two sessions with her. She wants to get to the root cause of the issues. I look forward to talking to her.

Dr. Thomas was a pleasure to work with. She really let me vent and get everything out and off my chest. She offered me options for dealing with all my main issues. I highly recommend.

Jeanetta is amazing. She is so easy to talk to and she brings up so many good points during our conversations. I have a lightbulb moment every time we connect.

When I first started my sessions, I was so anxious because I never had therapy before. Jeanetta put me at ease and actually listened to me. Her listening skills are tremendously great, her patience is outstanding, her ability to get me thinking and understanding my patterns and making me think more about my choices, and stop me from overthinking is just what I needed. The knowledge, the tools, and homework she gives me is very much needed and helpful. Every time I leave her sessions I feel empowered to keep going on. I could go on and on. She's literally my rock and I thank God for her!!!

She is amazing. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like I am speaking to a therapist it feels more like a friend. She is professional and gives good advice. She allows you to speak freely with no judgement and also let’s you know when you’ve made good progress and tells you she’s proud. She is also very patient. I love working with her.

Jeanetta is AMAZING!!! She is attentive, kind, and knowledgable. She never judges me and instead approaches me with patience and understanding. She listens so well and will remind me of something that I said weeks before that I forgot I disclosed! She keeps me on my toes and challenges me without being overbearing. I had some worries about therapy and she has put me completely at ease. She's also incredibly easy to talk to weekly! We had a great connection from day 1. I've already noticed such a substantial change in my mentality and my anxiety levels. I'm SO grateful for her!!!

Ms. Jeanetta is Really good at what she does. She listens and evaluates your needs. She pointed out things I was totally blind to and she recognized things that I felt in myself that I haven’t shared before . She’s awesome

Written by M.E. on May 25, 2021 after therapy with Jeanetta for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Jeanetta Thomas is extremely supportive, knowledgeable, and empathetic. She is a cautious listener and gives me thoughtful space as needed to express myself. Our sessions never feel rushed or like they are transactions. She sees me as the complex but whole human that I am, and never once has she made me feel ashamed or like I am in need of fixing. She is encouraging, kind, and a consummate professional. Highly recommend!

Work with me!
