I specialize in adoption issues, racial identity, and anxiety disorders.
My ideal client is someone who recognizes the need for change in their life, but may not know how to go about it to produce positive results. I primarily treat adults and teens who are struggling with trauma, mood disorders, anxiety, and relationship issues. In addition, cultivating self-awareness and figuring out what goals you have is a big part of therapy no matter what you come in with and is something everyone could benefit from. Being open to talk about hard things is difficult, but also very brave. I see it as a privilege to get to work with those who are ready to make that step in a safe validating environment.

My name is Jetona, although clients often call me 'Jet' for short; it seems to be more fun and memorable to most! I've worked with all ages, 6-75 years, and enjoy watching and assisting each with navigating their unique life path. I love doing work with families and couples involving non-traditional family structures/dynamics, positive parenting, life transitions, and adoption issues (i.e. for all triad units). I also enjoy working with individuals on areas such as low self-esteem, adjustment difficulties, depression, anxiety/stress, OCD, grief related loss & trauma, personality disorders, and Women issues- just to name a few.

I have worked with children who have been placed in the foster care system and those that are going through the adoption process.
Life can be overwhelming due to multiple reasons that may leave you feeling that there is no clear path. You may have considered therapy or wondered if it would be helpful to you. You may have talked yourself out of reaching out for help before, however, searching for a therapist is a step forward. Everyone deserves a safe space where you can speak with someone who is objective. I enjoy providing such a space to individuals. I will listen and work with you to help identify goals, barriers, and practical solutions. Every individual is exactly that, an individual, and has their own story and circumstances.

I have worked with a multitude of issues ranging from PTSD, foster care/ adoption , anxiety, depression, developmental and behavioral issues along with grief/Loss, and transitional issues as well.
C.S.Lewis once said, " You can't go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending". I believe that you must meet the client where they are currently. To provide a safe environment to alleviate crises, identify current needs, process past issues/traumas, and identify future goals for self. Also, to help clients learn to change negative behaviors/habits, to identify their own strengths, and develop positive coping skills in order to improve their quality of life. I believe your past does not have to define you but you can use it to propel yourself forward into the future that you hope to have.

I have experience working with children, teens, and families with specialties in trauma and adoption .
Robert Brault says, “A child seldom needs a good talking to as a good listening to.” As a mental health professional, I strongly believe in this idea. I have a passion for working with young children, adolescents, and parents in therapy. I also have a strong understanding for how trauma impacts our lives. As parents, it can be hard to know where to start when our children need someone to talk to or help in their daily struggles. I can help you, as a parent, as well as your child in learning ways to manage these struggles, maneuver hardships, and overcome difficult experiences.

Do you have a child with difficult or upsetting behaviors that is not responding to traditional parenting techniques? Does your child seem to be trying to control and manipulate you? Or do they seem fearful and anxious? These are behaviors often seen in adopted and foster children even if your child was placed in your loving home shortly after birth.

Life is complicated. Stress is inevitable. And, if you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by life or stressors it's ok to talk to someone. Therapy can help individuals, couples, and families to journey through life by making small changes which can have a big positive impact on how you approach and balance the many complex systems of life. As a therapist I will work with you to discover and restore your inner peace, improve communication, and provide feedback to discover what the next right step will before you.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
