My door is open to anyone seeking a peaceful place to mend themselves. Though I am most experienced assisting survivors of trauma, I recognize that "trauma" can be an intimidating word. Not everyone identifies with it. So, if you feel that you have experienced a loss, are grieving or have been heavily impacted by something let's have a conversation to see if we are a good fit.

Somatic therapy is a form of therapy that integrates the mind and body. When talk therapy is not enough, somatic approaches offer an integrated lens that allows the wisdom of the body to be expressed and explored. Dr. Jean creates a safe, therapeutic container from which each client can begin to develop a greater coherency of their daily life experiences and an understand of how their bodily experiences are interwoven.

Psychotherapy is a path to understanding the Self. My background is in family systems and Jungian psychology. I work with individuals around issues of anxiety, depression, creativity, and trauma. Depth therapy often includes work with dreams, art, and sandplay. In addition, I use EMDR for trauma when addressing issues of PTSD. I specialize in sexual abuse with adults as well as other kinds of trauma. I enjoy working with people from diverse cultures and orientations. As a supervisor for 25 years, I enjoy working with interns on their way to licensure. Buddhist mindfulness practice informs my life and work.

Your health problems are a part of you. They need not define you. As a health psychologist, I support adults and families coping with the effects of illness and injury. Whether you'd like to make changes to improve a chronic condition like diabetes, IBS, or heart disease, are struggling to adapt to a 'new normal' after a life-changing health event, or feel like symptoms are making the rest of your life take a back seat, you deserve support. Health Psychology is the practice of learning to maintain emotional resilience, reduce the impact of symptoms, and feel more in charge of your health, regardless of your diagnosis.

Are you feeling anxious or stressed and find it hard to get out of your head? Do you feel consumed with worry? Perhaps you feel stuck in a sad place from a past loss or a present difficulty or feel little hope for the future. These feelings can cause us to isolate and feel misunderstood by others. Many times, people feel beaten down by the world and end up turning their experiences inward, feeding a harsh self-critic who makes us doubt or judge ourselves, taking us away from the power of our inner resources. When we feel disconnected to ourselves, it is harder to build trust to connect to others and the larger world.

As a former social worker and mental health clinician for 20 years I witnessed families going through extreme circumstances of mental illness, addiction, abuse, children with serious emotional and behavioral problems at home and school, and complex custody cases through the court system. This experience taught me the importance of the therapeutic relationship, building safety and trust, open communication, working with people where they are at, and empathy. I believe it is through this process of being seen, heard, feeling valued and safe that the healing process can begin.

My only goal is to help you make the necessary changes in your life so that you can experience joy, love, abundance, and meaning. I believe that the only way for any of us to heal and grow from the pains of our experiences is with someone who can not only provide an understanding to what we're going through, but help us experience something different. I seek to achieve this outcome with you through a collaborative relationship and instilling empowerment in you.

Accepting new clients. I treat clients who struggle with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, relationship conflicts, and life transitions. I find that so many of my clients feel overwhelmed by their anxiety and panic attacks and don't know what to do to help themselves truly feel better. The good news is there are so many strategies to overcome anxiety that you can learn! My clients have made enormous strides in conquering anxiety and other emotions that hold them back.

Life satisfaction hinges on the quality of past & current relationships because we grow in relationship with others. This is what therapy is all about. I work with adults, adolescents, college and transitional-aged clients to unearth the roots of inner distress, expand awareness, curiosity, energy and empowerment. Life is not rigid, it flexibly ebbs & flows. Growth, while scary demands a surrender of outdated beliefs and behaviors, leaving a familiar comfort zone. But guess what? You will not be alone.

A person comes to therapy when their present ways of being in relationship, or in the world, no longer seem to hold the meaning they once did. My aim is to support you in creating a new foundation of hope, purpose, and meaning in your life. I help people seek wholeness through the integration of mind, body, and soul, thus expanding their current level of understanding, and in so doing, creating the capacity to live more meaningfully.

Therapy is a place where you can share things that may have only previously existed in your mind. Saying them out loud can be powerful and helpful for making change. Feelings of depression, anxiety, shame, guilt, fear, or seeming "stuck" do not have to be your norm. I have a specialization in perinatal mood disorders. Transition to parenthood is full of nuance and duality. I feel passionately about providing support for all stages of this journey including pregnancy loss, fertility issues, first time pregnancy, perinatal mood disorders (depression, anxiety etc), and first time parenting.
