About Me

Even as you come into therapy wanting to change, I understand that change can be difficult. I hold the space as a compassionate guide for my clients to rest into their own self-awareness. We collaborate to discover your authentic path to healing and wholeness. My approach is based on creating genuine interpersonal connection and cultivating mind/body/soul awareness as a way to come into more alignment with your true self. From this place, you will find more freedom of choice, feeling of purpose and sense of agency in your life.

I am a counselor licensed in the state of Illinois with thirteen years of experience working with individuals with anxiety, depression and addiction-related issues. I have a specialization in Dance/Movement Therapy which allows me to help clients find a sense of calm and grounding within their mind/body/soul through mindfulness practices.

I use a holistic approach, influenced by my training in and experience with: current attachment theory, trauma-informed care, humanistic theory, Internal Family Systems (IFS), Motivational Interviewing, Brainspotting, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness practices.

I have worked with individuals from a wide variety of cultures and understand that we all hold stories and beliefs which shape who we are. I love working with artists of all kinds, empaths, highly-sensitive people and anyone who feels misunderstood.

I look forward to working with you!

Jeannine has been great. I’m going through a life changing breakup. She’s helped me to understand why this is happening and I’m learning to accept it and move forward. I trust her expertise and knowledge as I haven’t been through anything quite like this. She also responds very quickly!

Jeannine is amazing and my time with her is absolutely priceless. She does a great job of making me feel heard and being engaged even though we are not in a traditional office setting. I have recommended better help to many friends because of my amazing experience with her!
