Hi, my name is Jean. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Missouri and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Kansas. I have 30 years of counseling experience? I have worked with clients from the age of two to ninety nine. I have a wide variety of experience in counseling. I started my career in counseling on an inpatient psychiatric unit. I worked at a shelter for women who had experienced physical abuse or were working on addiction issues as a children’s therapist. Currently I am an elementary school Counselor. I have also done individual outpatient mental health counseling in a variety of settings. I have experience in grief work, anxiety and depression, family/relationship conflicts, life transitions, complex trauma/abuse, physical/sexual abuse, codependency and adult children of alcoholics.
I use person-centered, holistic, multicultural, and integrative approach to therapy. I believe in starting where you are and helping to establish a treatment plan that is tailored to you. I work to be sensitive to how your individual cultural identities and lifestyle choices impact your experience. I primarily use evidence-based techniques including, but not limited to, cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling.
In my 30 years as a counselor, I have worked with couples frequently on many different issues. I have found that couples counseling is most successful, when both people are committed to working on the relationship. Couples counseling can be a long but powerful journey which can make a relationship stronger than it ever was before.
My style is warm and supportive. I will help you address your struggles head-on. I believe one of the most important aspects of successful counseling is collaboration. I will work with you to establish concrete goals and plan for you to overcome your problems. I am not a quick fix Counselor. My experience has taught me that it takes time to work through problems. I look forward to walking this journey with you.
