About me

I am an outpatient Co-occurring Mental Health and Substance Abuse Counselor Licensed in Indiana with over 36 years of experience providing a wide range of treatment services to non-inpatient and non-partial hospitalization hurting people. Individual Therapy and Group Psycho-Education Therapy have been the foundation of services I have provided. Additionally, I have worked with Trauma-Impacted people for many years.

Overall health and wellness represent my counseling style. My counseling approach is solution focused integrating and incorporating mostly Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Reality Therapy (RT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI) to empower and to promote self-efficacy in people.

I utilize the unique situations of every person to design an Individual Treatment Plan that addresses the presented and expressed needs of each person seeking service. I understand how difficult it is to reach out for help and I also understand the power and confidence gained in healing the wounded child.

The first step is getting started. If you are ready to start your journey, I look forward to helping you create and live your success story.

*Communication Problems
*Relationship Issues

I am comfortable with and have experience providing a variety of therapeutic treatment approaches and life skill enhancement strategies. Efficacy is the end result of a person’s motivation, application and implementation efforts to embrace change that aligns with the person’s desired outcome. What I don’t know, I learn. Where I can help, I do. My primary focus is overall health and wellness.

I've been meeting with Jeanette since April of 2022. In the time she has helped me recognize what it is that I'm needing in my own life, not just from others, but from myself. She allows me to work at my own pace while encouraging growth and improvement. I'm thankful every day to have her as my therapist. I hope everyone in the world has an opportunity to have someone like Jeanette in their life.

Ms. Jeanette is such a blessing to me. I literally don’t know where I would be without having met her. Her expertise is so helpful and valuable. She listens and engages in a way I’ve never experienced with any other therapist. She is kind, personable, thorough and friendly. I absolutely love her personality and her insights have helped me make great progress after literally being emotionally stuck for almost 8 years. She is a Godsend and she came at just the perfect time to help me understand the deep roots of my grief, resolve it, begin healing and find peace. I am beyond thankful for all that she is as a therapist. I absolutely adore her!
