Jeanette draws from an eclectic systems framework while integrating elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Holistic Therapy, Contextual Therapy, and Narrative Therapy, which collectively promote intergenerational healing and reconciliation.

Message to clients

One of the many things that clients often share with me after sessions is how quickly they feel their issues are addressed. In a busy and stressed out world, with demands of careers, relationships, and family, you may need an alternative perspective; someone to focus strictly on you, someone to assist in expanding your views, feelings of hopelessness, or if you are just feeling stuck. In a nonjudgmental space, we will explore together the issues that you feel may be bogging you down and search for solutions for improved functioning.
