18 years of experience

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with 18 years experience. My degrees and license have afforded me the opportunity to work with individuals, couples, adolescents, children and families. I have worked with clients who were experiencing numerous issues including but not limited to family dynamic issues, marital issues, couples issues, intimacy issues, infidelity, infertility, parenting issues, communication barriers, career choices, anxiety, depression, ADHD, OCD, grief, self esteem issues, self harm, disordered eating, substance abuse, trauma, PTSD, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, divorce and co parenting. My counseling style is best described as warm, direct, collaborative, empowering and TRANSFORMATIVE. If we work together we will absolutely create the change that you have been seeking in your life. Typically I draw from counseling styles rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Humanistic Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Family Therapy. However, Therapy is not a “one size fits all” practice, in fact it is just the opposite and this is why most often I will utilize Eclectic Therapy. I will adjust my counseling methods based on your issues in each session and I will also adjust them as you begin to change and grow. A skilled Therapist needs to be fluid in their approach because change is not stagnant. I am already proud of you for taking the first step in your journey to peace and happiness. If you chose me as your Therapist I want you to know that I will always respect your journey and the vulnerability and bravery that it takes to create lasting change in your life. I would be honored to assist you on your path and I look forward to our work together. Be well, Jannine

25 years of experience

I have been a psychotherapist for over 30 years. I have a lot of experience dealing with a variety of issues. I graduated from Fordham University School of Social Work in 1985. I have worked in a variety of settings. I have also work in other areas of administration of various organizations. In working with individuals my approach involves building a relationship of trust so that the person will free comfortable talking with me. This allows the person the safety to talk about the issues they are struggling with. This may also allow us to explore any underlying issues that may be the source of any anxiety or depression. By enabling clients to talk about their underlying emotional conflicts which usually are based in their childhood, they are aided to free up some of their emotional energy to deal with the here and now. I am able to work in a solution-focused short term model. This helps clients to focus on developing skills and strategies to help their everyday functioning. I have a lot of experience dealing with addictions and codependency issues. I have also worked in a pastoral counseling setting in the past. This allowed me the ability to use a personals spiritual experience to help the therapeutic process if the client is open to this. This helps to allow a more holistic approach to healing. I have a wide-ranging experience working with couples and families. I am also trained in hypnotherapy. I have a style of relating that people seem to find comforting and approachable. I am more proactive in my approach and interventions with clients. Some people find this easier to deal with rather than a therapist who seems to be just listening.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Granville area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Granville therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Granville due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Granville may not take health insurance, some in the state of New York may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of New York you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Granville, New York working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

You can also try a Granville therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Granville therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in NY, providers may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Granville counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A Granville licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Granville, New York can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Granville has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
