Jeannie utilizes multiple approaches including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Motivational Interviewing. My approach with clients is that of “meet the client where they are” so that I am able to help that client reach their goals. I work with clients of all ages from age 4 years old and up. I see children, adolescents, teens, and adults. I work with families and couples. I especially enjoy working with teens and their parents. I believe that relationship is often misunderstood and it is important to help build that relationship up for everyone.

Her approach is deeply rooted in attachment theory; focusing on developing a healthy and secure bond between therapist and client to better facilitate trust and overall therapeutic growth.
