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.
“Not everything that is faced can be changed. But nothing can be changed until it is faced,” - James Baldwin
“The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking”. – Albert Einstein

Written on Sep 11, 2023 after therapy with Jeanne for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, coping with life changes, and adhd
Jeanne is very easy to talk to, she listens and is very direct and considerate in her responses. She encourages me to slow down, really consider what I'm experiencing and figure out what's going on in my own brain. She is very empathetic and at the same time she will give me some tough love when I need it. I trust her to help me figure things out and really appreciate her perspective.

It is hard for me to put into words how thankful I am for J-the months we have been working together have been completely transformative! She has taught me so much about creating and holding boundaries, working through past trauma and using it to create a better future, and the way she listens and responds comes from a genuine place of care and concern…it’s like talking with a close friend! She is kind, thorough, and engaging, and her advice and insight is so valuable! I am grateful for BetterHelp pairing us together, I could not ask for a better therapist!
