We are often ruled by thoughts and patterns of conditioning that are largely outside of our awareness. While adaptive, this process can sometimes lead us astray. I aim to help you uncover unhealthy patterns of conditioning by cultivating awareness through mindful intention which will ultimately help guide you towards a more conscious and fulfilling life. I have extensive experience working with individuals suffering from mood disorders, trauma-related disorders and substance abuse.

Hello, my name is Janine. When human beings experience trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. My great passion is bringing healing to people who have been through a traumatic/stressful experience. I help my clients, who include children, adults and families, to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, whole and safe. I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual, and so I have been trained in a range of modalities.

My approach to psychotherapy is holistic. I not only treat the "tip of the iceberg" problems, but also address the deeper, "bottom of the ocean," issues. I treat the whole person and honor the mind-body-spirit connections, taking into account the client's cultural, religious and ethnic background, ancestry, race and immigration history. I recognize the complexity of each person's history and circumstances and employ a wide variety of techniques to guide my clients in their self-discovery.

When we hold layers of unprocessed experience and emotions, life can feel very constricted. Often we're not even aware that's what's going on. We just feel stuck, and things have a way of feeling like an uphill struggle. That's because the accumulation of stress and overwhelming experiences in our life and relationships can create a new normal that is far removed from who we really are. It becomes harder to connect with our strengths, dreams, aliveness and power.

Psychotherapy is available any time and under any conditions to support you with care and skill as you explore the vast and rich range of human experience. You can safely touch the pain inherent in existence or feel the beauty equally inherent in life, or know empathy for yourself and another. You can be more open to knowing your limitations and brokenness, and be willing to see the truth of your life from the mistakes to the successes with self compassion and acceptance - to be truly free to learn, heal and grow toward your full potential.

We all have moments in our lives when we need a little support, and even the most loving relationships can encounter bumpy roads. If you are here, you may be in that moment now - feeling stuck or overwhelmed in some way. I offer families, couples (and relationships of every kind) a place to slow down, take a breath and explore what’s going on and where you’d like to go. I also work with adolescents and teens who are often under great pressure that goes unnoticed, and offer a place to find their footing.

I support young people to find their voice, become more self confident, and communicate in a way that expresses their needs. Many times there is a disconnect between behavior and desires. I work closely to increase awareness of why these behaviors are happening and encourage an awareness to begin to identify triggers, with an overall goal of self awareness and self control.

What do you want to accomplish in therapy? A lot of people want to have less of something: anxiety, depression, anger, relationship conflict, and so forth. This is understandable. When things hurt us and get in our way, even if those things come from inside us, it’s very reasonable to want them to go away. But what if making thing go away has been the problem all along? Can you remember a time in your life when you felt strong, resilient, and resourceful? During this time, was your life free from problems? I’m guessing not. Bu you were probably were moving your feet in the direction of things that mattered to you at the time.

My style is very open, warm, and flexible. I will collaborate with you to meet your individual needs and provide the space for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.

Do you feel trapped by your past and anxious about your future, unable to live in the present? This malaise of modern living is often a sign of past trauma. I can help you uncover the experiences that keep you from living a full and zestful life. My primary focus is with women and parents, particularly those with a history of trauma. In therapy you'll explore the feelings that arise in your body, and notice their links to negative thoughts. You can choose a new and more positive narrative, to look at your life through a different lens.

The goal of therapy is for you be happy in your love and work. At the heart of it, therapy is about increasing your capacity to alleviate your suffering; feel more connected with yourself and others; expand and enrich yourself; recognize what you want; and recognize the internal and external forces that keep you from getting what you want. These are powerful antidotes to anxiety and depression.

When faced with a crisis, transition, or other stressful life situation we all intuitively seek comfort, support, and guidance. While we can often receive this from friends and family it often isn't sufficient to resolve the issue or prevent it from reoccurring. Real and lasting changes are possible but they require trying new approaches to old problems.
