About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker/therapist licensed in the states of Idaho and Montana with over 6 years of experience. The majority of my experience has been within a hospital setting for adults and adolescents with severe mental health issues. I have seen firsthand the incredible change that often occurs with a person given the opportunity to tell his/her/their story, be genuinely listened to, and be guided to the innate wisdom to wellness that already resides within. For the last two years, I have been leading a group at my local library to teach mental health wellness skills to community members and providing a setting for the members to practice these new wellness skills.

My counseling style is based on being present with a client, not just hearing, but truly listening and being a witness to another. I will want to know what exactly a client wants to learn or resolve and I will provide guidance and insight and teach skills accordingly. I will also introduce ideas I consider foundational to wellness, including mindfulness, really leaning in and feeling our emotions, centeredness and grounding, self-love, the difference between surviving skills and thriving skills, and exploring beliefs and how they create our life stories. My approach combines client-centered therapy, solution-focused therapy, and mindfulness therapy as we weave together practical behavioral approaches with deep insights into why we are the way we are and how this can transform.

I am also a Certified Emotion Code Practitioner (CECP). The Emotion Code is a form of energy healing. Its premise is that we can trapped unprocessed emotions in as a "stuck" frequency in our energy bodies. As a practitioner, I can assist you in identifying trapped emotions, discovering when they were trapped and in response to what event, and then releasing the stuck energy with intention. You can learn more at Discover Healing (discoverhealing.com). You can view my certification at https://discoverhealing.com/certified-practitioners/. The BetterHelp platform offers you a great opportunity to try out an energy healing modality. I have the flexibility to combine Emotion Code work with a more traditional talk therapy session, or focus solely on Emotion Code one day and talk therapy another day. Give it a try!

It takes courage to choose an opportunity for growth and change. I am here to join you on such a journey.

Written by L.U. on Apr 13, 2022 after therapy with Jeanie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Jeanie has been very good at listening, providing support and helping to reframe or gain insight into my situation. She was careful not to judge or take sides in personal conflicts. She was also responsive and thoughtful in her approach. She utilized tools that were practical in using in my life. Very grateful.

She is just the greatest!! I feel 100% comfortable telling her anything. She’s really great at making me feel understood and helps me understand that there isn’t something wrong with me. The advice she provides me I always find very helpful in huge ways. I’ve only had a few sessions with her, and I already see huge changes in myself.

Finding Jeanie through Betterhelp.com has been life-changing for me. I’ve had a few counselors over the years, and even went through a couple on BetterHelp before being matched with Jeanie. I appreciated how easy BetterHelp made it for me to try two other counselors before finding Jeannie, because it is difficult to match up with a counselor that can meet your needs and personality really well. Jeanie does this perfectly for me. She is an excellent listener, patient, skilled, kind, uplifting, and offers insights that I just hadn’t been able to see myself. She Is supportive and motivating, without being harsh or critical in any way. She has helped me heal and grow and has gently shown me ways to learn about myself and given me tools to use on my own that I absolutely believe have improved my emotional well-being and outlook on life.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jeanie for about three months now. I have been very comfortable with her approach and confident in her abilities to offer healthy options to address my situations. It has been so very helpful to have someone to talk to in this tough time.

I have loved working with Jeanie. She listens and understand. I love that she gives me the tools I need to better my communication skills. Jeanie has really helped me to understand my feelings and the feelings of other. I'm so proud of the positive progress I have made in myself and could not have made the changes and set the boundaries I have without her. I am becoming a more confident individual and I couldn't have done that without her help. She has opened my heart and mind and I am becoming the person I want to be.

Jeanie has been a wonderful therapist to help guide me back to my authentic self and identify what holds me back. I strongly recommend her. She has great listening skills and pushes with just the right amount of genuine concern and leadership.

Written by C.H. on Dec 15, 2021 after therapy with Jeanie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and self esteem

I like how she listens and gives me idea on how to improve myself. She reaches out if it’s been a day or two since I have messaged and checks in on me. So far I am really liking my experience.

Jeanie has been a HUGE help in just the last few weeks alone. She has been attentive, thorough, and direct in helping me quickly. If you are ready to open your heart and mind and work on yourself then Jeanie is a fantastic guide.

Just started working with Jeanie and she has all the components I want in a therapist. She listens and also knows how to navigate the conversation so its not just me talking but she has a chance to help me sort things out. Also, I just want to note how great she is at communication pre and post session.

I feel like she is truly here to understand the whole situation and guide me through it. Her excellent listening skills are exactly what I need right now. Top all that off with clear and concise exercises for looking at thoughts or situations differently, and I couldn't have it better. Thank you Jeanie!

Written by B.L. on Sep 24, 2021 after therapy with Jeanie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

I have only been working with Jeanie for a short period of time, but I really feel like I am already making progress. I think Jeanie does a great job at listening and giving me a better prospective of what is occurring in my life. It has been a eye opening experience and has helped me understand myself better.

Work with me!
