I treat alcohol, drug, and eating problems, depression, dual-diagnosis, anxiety, trauma, bariatric surgery patients, and relationship issues. Adults and teenagers address how the use of substances, alcohol, drugs, food, impacts their lives in negative and unproductive ways. We seek solutions together to more satisfying lifestyles and relationships. I work with couples and individuals having difficulties in relationships, wanting to resolve problems rather than separating or divorcing as the only solution. I work to separate past hurts from present reality. As an Equine Mental Health Specialist, I use horses and exotic farm animals for personal growth and education when requested.

I help couples in their relationships needing a tune-up or major overhaul, adults and teens needing to learn to communicate more effectively. As an addictions specialist, I conduct interventions, educating family members about addiction and co-dependency. I make HOUSE CALLS for expert professional counseling in the privacy of their own homes.

Working as a couples, family, and child therapist for my entire professional career since 1970, I have successfully treated numerous individuals with relationship, substance abuse, eating, and depression issues. My office is on a quiet country property, with unique and friendly farm animals at a distance.

Jean Hayes's Groups

Weight No More! Weight Loss and Lifestyle Change

Support group for individuals who want to lose weight and maintain it by making healthy and conscious changes in the way they eat. Individualized food plans are developed to meet these goals. Psychological insight is gained by looking at what has prevented successful weight loss and management in the past. To assist in optimum food choices a monthly cooking class is part of the program that is educational and fun and where new habits can be firmly put in place. This is a multi-faceted approach encompassing support, individually developed food plans, education, and positive results.

More about this group

Couples Educational and Support Group

This group will explore and discuss relationship issues that to some seem insolvable, but to others the solutions are clear. Problem solving and solution focused is the process by which insight is attained and old, unhelpful behaviors are replaced by new more constructive ones. We will cover different topics like, communication, sexuality, parenting styles, family of origin, blended families, and whatever else is most relevant to group members. Listening to other couples interact is a most helpful way to understand individual issues and the dynamics of couples relationships. The group process will be didactic, experiential, and provide insight for change.
