About me

Hi, my name is Jeannie. I am a licensed clinical social worker who has worked in health care for many years. Throughout my professional journey, I have developed relationships with people during some of the most vulnerable and difficult periods of life: partnering with clients through pain, suffering, loss, illness, addiction,
depression and anxiety. We've all been there and know that it is CRITICAL to be HEARD, UNDERSTOOD and get the ADVOCACY that we need. I would be honored to partner with YOU as you are navigating challenges in your life. Whether you are grieving a loss, struggling with depression and/or anxiety, need support making some positive changes in your life or are looking for some ideas on how to handle your stress, please feel free to reach out! I am very passionate about becoming the best person I can be, and would love to help you strive for your FULL POTENTIAL as well,

In my spare time, I enjoy spending life with my family and friends. Thank you for taking the time to read about me. Now let me leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Theodore Roosevelt........"Believe you can and you're half way there." Looking forward to hearing from you.

I love her! She reminds me of my grandma that passed away when I was a little girl! It’s easy to connect with her and I never feel like she’s judging me which is really important to me!

Jeannie has helped me through some very difficult moments and has genuinely helped me to retrain my brain in ways that can better support living through stress in a healthier way. Even when I have moments that fall back into old habits, she helps reset my emotions and guides me into a more rational head space where I can manage the feelings and think more positively. I wish I could stay on with her forever as a client!

She's been so helpful and kind. I feel like I've known her for years. She's been a big help in dealing with the loss of my dad. So glad I've met her.
