At M.A.Jean-Charles Psychotherapy & Consulting, LLC, healing, learning, and growing is our mantra and shapes our therapeutic philosophy. We believe that to heal psychically and to grow into the best version of ourselves, and one must engage in learning.

As a clinical psychologist, I work with adolescents and adults in individual psychotherapy. My style is warm and interactive and I strive to create an environment where clients feel safe, respected and challenged. I believe that all people have great potential for growth and change; I trust in the process of psychotherapy as an effective way to facilitate that change.

We - as humans - at times get anxious, sad or stuck. Major life transitions, such as relationship or life stage changes, career or identity crises, and significant loss, can leave us questioning ourselves as well as our sense of direction and purpose. Other times, it is a felt lack of change that contributes to feeling stagnant or trapped. Therapy helps first of all by creating space around our suffering, so that new possibilities for living can be found. I combine a gently curious, accepting and collaborative approach with a secure therapeutic framework to help people navigate change and work, love, and play better.
I work with children, adolescents, and adults with a variety of issues including mood disorders, relationship struggles, anxiety, school problems, problematic behaviors, and more. My clients and I work together to understand the origin and meaning of the problems for which they seek help. Interventions are tailored to each client's need and are ever evolving. My approach is engaged, holistic, and warm. I draw from cognitive behavioral, psychoanalytic, and evolutionarily psychology theory.
Welcome. People seek psychotherapy for a variety of reasons, such as relief from anxiety, loneliness, or grief. Others feel stuck or disconnected. Perhaps patterns of unsatisfying relationships or difficulties deepening relationships have emerged. Psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to explore personal issues in an environment of trust and respect. I appreciate the courage it takes to work through problems. Emotional pain can signal that one is called upon to make changes or understand things in a new light. I am interested in helping others express themselves more openly, feel more connected to others, and enhance capacities for making authentic choices.

Clients who choose to work with me tend to feel that they could benefit from deep inquiry into existing problems and their origins. I will support you as you develop greater insight into where you feel trapped, hurt or inhibited, and together, we will figure out how to alleviate your pain. We may also draw on our interactions as a source for learning about old, repetitive patterns that are no longer useful, in order to enact creative possibilities for change and connection. I will encourage self understanding so that you can use it to make different choices, pursue goals, and feel more in control of how you want to live your life.
I work with individual, couples and groups who are in the midst of a life crisis, an enormous emotional struggle, who have experienced a traumatizing event in their lives or are grieving a loss. I have helped people access their own internal strength so they can start to feel solid ground under their feet again. Sometimes it is a process of changing something or coming to terms with a part of life that has been avoided or stuck in denial. Other times it is process of understanding more deeply and get more clarification in order to make a decision. Still others are working on re-building trust after being devastated by betrayal.
I am a clinical social worker in private practice for over 25 years. Previously I did inpatient and outpatient work at a community mental health center. Deciding to talk with a therapist about your problems can be a difficult step, particularly when you are not feeling your best. I work to create a relationship and atmosphere that encourages openness and trust. It is a privilege to be entrusted with your personal and private feelings and thoughts. In therapy we work together to deepen your self-understanding, address and work to resolve concerns that contribute to your emotional suffering and enhance your personal growth.
Whether you are seeking validation or support, behavior or mood change, insight or solace, we can find a method and approach that works for you. I primarily work with adults and multi-person romantic/platonic units, but have experience with people and relationships from every stage of life, from children under 10 to adults over 100.
Hello Unique One, welcome :) I offer a blend of therapy and consultation to support therapists/healers/coaches in navigating stuck points in their work with clients. Specializing in Complex PTSD, and developmental trauma, healers come to me for support with triggers and activation arising from complex cases. I am passionate about supporting therapists find more ease, clarity, and creativity through developing connection with all aspects of themselves. Using the Internal Family Systems framework, we will focus on widening your capacity to connect to, learn from, and integrate the more challenging parts that arise within.
Do you feel overwhelmed when facing the obstacles in your life? Have you tried to find ways to help yourself, but no matter what you do, things are not getting better? Therapy can help you find new ways of dealing with the challenges in life that have become too much to handle alone. Every person has a reservoir of strength inside. Through compassionate, supportive therapy, you can connect to your strengths to develop new ways of dealing with problems and difficult feelings, relationships, and transitions.
*NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*We all need support, guidance and inspiration on the journey of becoming who we most want to be. Issues that emerge in relationships often stem from a disconnect from the self. My hope is to support individuals in connecting to their own inner wisdom in attempt to live with authenticity. I specialize in work with sexuality and gender and see couples of any/all genders. I focus on communication, repair after betrayal, trust and intimacy. With compassion, I support clients in living their truths, understanding patterns, exploring different aspects of themselves and developing insight and awareness.
I believe whole-heartedly in each person's capacity to heal, and I work collaboratively with my clients. My work connects people with their strengths, their creativity and with their internal healing systems so that they can make the kinds of changes they want to make. My clients utilize the insights they discover and the tools they learn in our sessions to create more peace and joy in their lives.
When a client meets me at my practice, I know that they want me to help. Whether it's depression, anxiety, a bad relationship, or something else... People seek me, hoping that I will be of help, and that is also what I hope for them. Whether it is an individual or a couple, of all ages, people want to be healthy, loved, and supported by doing well at school/work..... More so I was an immigrant and therefore I understand other immigrant's feelings and life experiences.
Helping people live a life of authenticity and ease is at the heart of my work. We all need a safe and supportive place to feel heard, move through challenges and develop insight. I meet my clients where they are and encourage them toward their goals with compassion, hope, and kindness. On this therapeutic journey we learn to identify and embrace strengths, integrate new skills and self-understanding, and come into a deeper knowing of ourselves.
Whether you're dealing with depression, anxiety, family or relationship concerns, grief, or other life transitions, I would be honored to join you as we explore the possibilities and limitations you experience in your life.
