My what (short bio):
I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 2013 with a Master of Science in Education and am currently working towards my Ph.D. in Organizational Leadership. As a Therapist, Company Culture Cultivator, and Leadership Development Facilitator, I work to support others in living the lives they desire. This intersection of professional development & job training and an individual’s happiness & life satisfaction is the focus of my current studies. It is my hope that not only will our personal but also our professional lives, will create an environment that allows us to not simply survive but thrive.
I always thought I would climb the corporate ladder. Yet as my life progressed, I constantly found myself providing support for what was stressing and distressing those around me. I enrolled at UPenn to learn more about people and the human condition. I found that we are more alike than we think, capable of more than we try, and more courageous than we know. It is my goal to help all of my clients identify the lives they desire to lead and support them in living that life.
My sessions are CBT-based with a few other ideologies sprinkled in. It is my belief if we can gain awareness of our thoughts, we can better identify our feelings then we are able to choose our actions. I give my clients homework and use our sessions to reflect on present situations impacting their lives. We occasionally discuss the past and how it is impacting the present, after all, we are the sum of our experiences. To ignore the past is to ignore the foundation our life was built on.
The two quotes below do a great job of capturing my thoughts on therapy and its impact on our lives.

J has a no bs approach which works for me. It was easy making a connection with J and I felt very comfortable sharing and receiving unbiased advice. I look forward to working with her long term.
Ms. Jeanne has been really great so far. I really enjoy talking with her and I feel like I’m getting so much out of counseling just by having her to talk to. I would recommend her to anyone seeking help.
Timely response, great advice and perspective.
Overall she’s fantastic
