About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 25 years experience as a therapist and life coach. I love working with individuals through difficult times in their lives. I specialize in anxiety and stress issues, relationship coaching, sleep and chronic pain problems, and life transitions. I want to walk your journey with you for awhile to assist you in creating your best life. I integrate mindfulness, solution-focused, and cognitive-behavioral techniques, and offer many practical tools, thoughtful insights and ways to explore your best path forward.

Many people reach out for help when they re feeling anxious or depressed, when relationships are going through difficult times, or when they have lost some of their passion and joy for life. Once you reach out you'll have someone in your corner who has your best interest at heart and will help you figure out next steps as well as long-term goals.

My style is comfortable and nurturing. I welcome diversity and wish to create a safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and actions without negative judgements or limiting beliefs that might affect your self esteem.

Written by J.A. on Jan 27, 2021 after counseling with Jeanne for 9 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, and anger management

Jeanne was able to help me walk through the recovery process in a way that was comfortable and effective. I was very lucky to find her. She has introduced techniques and tools to me that I had not learned in the past.

Jeanne has been beyond amazing! She is helping me with my relationship struggles, learning to love myself and stay away from negative thoughts as well as overthinking. She is respectful and kind. I also appreciate her quick responses to my messages when I’m needing help in the moment she is fantastic. Thank you Jeanne! -Hannah

Written by Z.A. on Sep 09, 2020 after counseling with Jeanne for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and anger management

This is my first time doing therapy and Jeanne has been my life saver. After going through a really difficult time I finally decided to try therapy and I can’t recommend it enough to people. Jeanne is caring, understanding and listens to me without judgement. She has given me the tools to cope with everything I’m going through and has made me think about myself in new ways. I feel like I am healing and growing because of her. Thank you Jeanne and Better Help.

Jeanne has been the best first therapist I could have asked for. She is helpful, considerate, and isn’t afraid to challenge me. I’m so grateful to have found someone that I feel comfortable talking to and trust to have my best interests in mind.

Written by M.E. on Jul 22, 2020 after counseling with Jeanne for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, career difficulties, and coaching

Jeanne is a great support who is evidently very knowledgeable and experienced in counselling. I have been seeking her support through many different challenges i have faced and she has always guided me in seeing things in a different perspective and helped me with strategies on how to handle them. She is also accommodating of my availability for virtual sessions given i belong to a different time zone. I would highly recommend Jeanne.

Written by S.U. on Jul 20, 2020 after counseling with Jeanne for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, and self esteem

Jeannie is the fifth therapist I have seen, I did not find any of the others to be a good fit, but was amazed when I liked Jeannie right from the start. She is kind, considerate, interested and proactive, I find her suggestions and viewpoints invariably useful and specific. I always look forward to my weekly chats with her and would highly recommend her to anybody. I am so happy that I finally feel like I am on the road to recovery from my generalised anxiety disorder. V happy customer!

Jeanne is very thoughtful and has a set of professional skills and knowledge that I appreciate and find very beneficial.

Written by E.. on Jun 11, 2020 after counseling with Jeanne for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

I was matched with another counselor before Jeanne, and would be sent copy/paste replies to my messages that didn’t even relate to what I wrote about. I would ask questions about my circumstances and was told that I could get answers in a session, not through message - which isn’t possible for me.
I was then matched with Jeanne and there has been a WORLD of difference. She reads what I write- she responds to me in depth, even at times when she’s not scheduled to be working. She doesn’t require that I have a live session in order to help me with real world solutions to my issues. Jeanne is the only reason I am still on betterhelp!

Written by Z.O. on May 08, 2020 after counseling with Jeanne for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and compassion fatigue

Jeanne is always a good listener and has great advice. She has this sense of experience, empathy, and realness about her. I find it very helpful to talk to her, and she always makes sure we do so, even if I am at times somewhat inconsistent.
