Meet Our Founder, Jennine
It’s been nearly 20 years since I first became interested in studying psychotherapy. I began practicing the scientific approaches to psychotherapy in 1997 and I was hooked from then on.
I earned my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family psychotherapy in 2004 and I am currently licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist MFT (LMFT#47653) with the Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS).
I focus my practice upon the empirically-based and proven research methods of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
I’ve seen these techniques consistently get results and I truly believe they are the most effective at creating positive, long-term change.

Estes Therapy literally saved my life. If you are looking for patient, passionate, knowledgeable, friendly, intelligent, warm, genuine therapists, come here. It is more than a job for them and you feel that when working with them. I can’t recommend therapy enough and I can’t recommend specifically Estes Therapy enough. Thank you!
Intentional, practiced, warm, devoted, and caring are a few of the words that come to mind when I think of Dana Pasculescu at Estes Therapy. Dana works to meet every single person where they are at every single time she meets them.
