Get To Know Jennine

Relationship Expert Therapist

There’s more to me than just MFT!

Yes, I’m a marriage and individual therapist, but I have lots of other hobbies that keep me involved (and enjoying) life. I love to sit quietly at coffee shops and write articles about therapy, but I also love the adrenaline of trying new things. I will go for a solo run to clear my mind, but I’m also a social butterfly who loves to talk and connect with people. What’s most important for you to know is that I like challenges and no challenge is more interesting to me than understanding the complexity of my clients’ needs.

I built my private practice from the ground up – I am not only the therapist, but the CEO, accountant, secretary, IT guy, and more! I am completely invested in my practice, which has helped me grow quickly and build an excellent reputation in my community. My clients know that I won’t give them psycho-babble, I won’t make assumptions that put them in a box, and I absolutely won’t take sides. My goal is to really understand your world and help you move away from destructive communication habits so you can create safe, secure bonds with the people you love.

I am also a lifelong relationship and marriage therapy student. I receive one-on-one training and attend bi-monthly meetings with my peers to continually improve my skills. I am certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, as well as a supervisor-in-training for EFT. I want to be able to give my clients the best, most modern therapy techniques.  In my counseling sessions, I use the framework of attachment theory and process the emotional experiences with each of my clients through Marriage Counseling, Couple Therapy, Premarital Counseling and Divorce Therapy.   Some of the other ares are Anxiety and Depression Counseling.
