A Bit About Jean
Jean sees her role as a therapist as providing a secure and respectful place where the engagement of therapy can occur. She considers therapy to be a creative process of discovery and as such, it involves a willingness to take risks. Another component of her role is to assist clients in clarifying thoughts, feelings, difficulties and strengths. For her, the goal of therapy is the development of self-sustaining abilities, strength and flexibility, so that life can unfold in meaningful and satisfying ways. A related theme running through her practice is integrating the soul or spirituality, and a sense of humor, into day to day lives.
Jean's approach is integrative, holistic, client-focused, and tailored to each individual. She provides therapy for individuals dealing with anxiety, depression and loss or grief.
Jean earned a master of arts in clinical psychotherapy from Antioch University Los Angeles and worked as a therapist in the Antioch Counseling Center. She has also worked as a graduate student advisor at Bastyr University before re-entering the field of psychotherapy.
Reading, being on a beach somewhere, road trips with her family and discovering new places are among Jean's favorite things. She likes finding cool rocks, growing plants, and finding out about birds.
