Hi! I am an Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) based out of Washington State. Life can be hard and messy! We have all experienced unexpected difficulties and loss; whether it be the death of a loved one, the loss of a job or a significant relationship or some other challenge that has been hard to navigate on our own.
I have worked with both justice impacted and non-justice impacted individuals challenged by depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss as well as drug and alcohol addiction. My approach is a a person centered strengths based solution focused approach drawing heavily from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
I approach therapy uniquely and as an opportunity to find the lessons and strengths in the difficulties we all face. I am laid back and believe there is therapeutic value in humor, mindfulness, and finding gratitude in the small things. I wholeheartedly believe you are the expert of your story and that you have the aptitude that will assist you in achieving greatness! Reaching out for help can be intimidating and overwhelming. I want to commend you on taking the first step to sign up for therapy! Most of my appointments are on Sunday’s with some availability on Saturday’s as well as weekday evenings. I am excited to begin working with you. Together, we can identify your goals and make plans for you to achieve them.

Jeanette is such a great therapist! I am so glad I was able to match with her. She gives great advice, she listens and most importantly she does not judge. After the very first session, I felt so much better! I loved how I was able to feel so free and relaxed after the ONLY first session.

Jeanette has been extremely helpful in not only listening to me when I'm looking for help, but in also constructively challenging the way I've framed my perspective of things so that I can honestly address the root-cause - e.g. calling it out when I'm contradicting myself, guiding me to re-think the way I'm viewing events/actions and setting incremental goals to move myself forward.
I can't say enough great things about the conversations I have with Jeanette and how impactful her work has been for me!

Jeanette is wonderful. She is always very attentive to my needs and provides me with the tools I need when I am struggling. I highly suggest working with her as she has helped me grow so much and has reframed how I think about the issues I deal with.

I've had my share of therapists in my life and Jeanette is the gold standard. I would recommend her without hesitation. She is non-judgmental and empathetic, asks the right questions and is helping me live a better life. I actually look forward to talking to her which is a first for therapists. She's a gem!
