Hi, I’m Jennine

Think of me as your relationship consultant, I’m your neutral third party that can help you untangle the emotions and help you figure out what’s really going on. I want everyone who walks in my door to know that I absolutely believe in what I do.


Couples and individual therapy has proven to build a strong foundation for individuals and for their relationships–not only for my clients, but within my own life as well. As a therapist, I am compassionate, understanding, and down-to-earth. With practical and effective methods, I help my clients create life-long positive relationships by focusing on communication, conflict resolution, self awareness, and more. We will work together to build healthy relationships that last.

I want to hear your storyJennine Estes San Diego Therapist
My counseling sessions are relaxed, collaborative and empathetic. I’ll make sure you feel comfortable when you share your story. We’ll work together to build healthy relationships that will last.

I use a variety of theoretical orientations, such as cognitive behavioral therapy and solution focused therapy. The majority of my counseling practice is based on Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) and attachment theory. EFT focuses on creating secure attachments in relationships and building safe bonds. It helps couples change how they emotionally reach to each other. I am certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy, as well as a supervisor-in-training for EFT. I also work with helping individuals overcome trauma using EMDR Therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).

Not only do I help clients, but I also enjoy helping other therapists. I currently supervise three Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT) interns (therapists with MFT master’s degrees who are working toward building clinical hours for their licensure in California) and train them with counseling techniques. I also train licensed therapists on how to building successful therapy practices. I absolutely love the variety of work and it allows me to meet amazing people along the way.

Or scroll down the page and learn about my journey to becoming a therapist or about my media appearances. If you still have questions, feel free to call or email me.

I am very passionate working alongside individuals, couples, and adolescences with life’s challenges, family issues, and personal struggles. Through my life experience of being married for over 36 years, raising a blended family, and experiencing life’s trials, I am able to empathize, encourage and empower my clients to reach their maximum potential of who they are to be.

My experience working 25 years in a school district setting, allowed me the opportunity to assist students (K-12), parents and teachers who faced challenges with disabilities. I have also had experience working with addictions, anxiety, depression, mental illness and trauma while working with the homeless population.

Deborah Mori

MFT #94438 | $150


Although it can be daunting to see a therapist for the first time, you are here for a reason and it’s time to find some healing in a safe and accepting environment. Many times people often develop destructive patterns to try to ease suffering and can end up getting stuck without knowing where to turn or how to safely let others see their struggles and pain. This is where Deborah Mori, LMFT, a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, can help you discover your strengths and explore what is getting in your way from the life you want.

Deborah’s top primary theoretical approaches include EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), which have been significant components in helping people find success through a history of abuse, childhood neglect, PTSD, unmanageable emotions, and low self-esteem. She provides individual therapy for adolescents and adults, families, and couples for issues such as trauma, anxiety, depression, family/relationship conflict, and eating disorders. It is Deborah’s highest honor to “see” you with compassionate eyes and a kind heart to help you find your way to a thriving life.

While earning her Masters degree, Deborah Mori worked with children and adolescents in two east county schools, counseling students with mood and anxiety disorders, suicidal thoughts, sex trafficking, unmanageable emotions, trauma, and life transitions. Since then, Deborah has provided therapy for adolescents & adult women struggling with eating disorders and co-occurring mental health issues in a residential facility and private practice. She also has numerous extended training in EMDR, DBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, ACT, Family Systems, Mindfulness-based therapy, and Trauma-Informed CBT.

In any free time, therapist Deborah Mori can be found exploring San Diego with her husband, teenage son and two large dogs. She loves comedy, painting, cooking, and can frequently be found with a book in her hands.


Jacqueline Wielick

IMF #100541 | $120 per 50-minute session


If you are in need of quick relationship skills and tools training, or patient long term processing and restructuring, I will be there as a support, a guide, and a safe space. Research tells us that couples tend to wait an average of 6- 7 years after the onset of an issue prior to seeking help for it. Can you imagine going 6-7 years with a broken bone before going to the doctor? Therapy is a space where you can work towards creating your own version of your best life. I am Jacqueline Wielick and I am here to help you improve your relationship.

Together, we have the ability to create new ways of being in this world. I believe that our attachments and connections to others have a tremendously significant impact on our wellbeing and how we experience ourselves and our lives- and when you are in a crisis, you need practical help fast. I have a deep passion for all of life’s relationships, and you will see my passion come out in my work through my patience, strengths-based outlook, and understanding. I am passionate about research, science, and seeking new knowledge- continually bringing to you the cutting edge of what really works. I have my Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from San Diego State University, where I received a training that focused on research, multiculturalism and hands-on training. I am currently working as an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist.

I supported thousands of couples throughout their experience at the world-renowned Art and Science of Love Workshop over the four years I worked as the Assistant Director of Couples Services at The Gottman Institute. There I received significant exposure, training, and understanding of Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I am both Level 1 and Level 2 trained in Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and I also have additional training working with couples where one or both partners are recovering from addiction. I am also a Gottman Seven Principles Leader, a title given to those who are able to train other professionals in hosting the Art and Science of Love Workshop.

Originally from Seattle, I received a double major in Psychology and Sociology from Western Washington University, giving me insight not only into one’s intrapsychic nature but also into the larger socio-cultural context they exist within. I have received specific training in Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services in Bellingham, WA., where I also volunteered as support at an inpatient rehabilitation facility for teenage girls.

Outside of therapy, my passions in life include food, coffee, and nurturing the relationships I am so thankful to have in my life.
