Jane Heenan, MS, MFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Las Vegas
My practice supports authentic living. I hope to join with persons and offer my understanding of where they are. Such genuine contact encourages awareness of possibilities that otherwise remain just out of reach. Relationship is central; foundations of healthy relationships include trust, respect, honesty and risk-taking. Persons I sit with commonly say I am supportive and challenging, non-judgmental and safe. Persons with previous experience in therapy say that our play together is "different" than their other therapy relationships, perhaps because I fundamentally believe persons are good and have inherent power to grow and change.
I see many survivors of violence, including queer-identified survivors. I am often seeing through the lens of power and offering my in-the-moment experiences of someone's unique person/environment field of which each of us is a part. Together, our shared awarenesses support growth and change.
I hope to connect specific/individual experiences of violence with larger contexts of systemic/cultural violence: ecocide, patriarchy/misogyny, racism/white supremacy, classism, ableism, etc. While I am familiar with DSM diagnoses, I see persons as creatively adapting to experiences in their lives, not as "sick" persons needing "treatment."
