About Me, Jennine Estes

San Diego Marriage Therapist

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) and have completed the EMDR Basic Training.

Not only do I  help clients, but I also enjoy helping other therapists.  I currently supervise three Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT) – these are 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.
