Jeannette is passionate about journeying with teen girls and young adult women toward a deeper understanding of themselves, their experiences and their relationships — helping them find freedom, hope, and healing to live more authentic lives and to embrace more fully who God created them to be.
Jeannette is a licensed clinical social worker with a Master of Social Work from Grand Valley State University and a Bachelor of Social Work from Dordt University. She has several years of experience working with individuals and families from a variety of diverse backgrounds through child welfare, home-based family counseling, hospice care, outpatient counseling, and school-based counseling.
Jeannette believes there is hope for any situation and that each person is valuable, purposefully created and designed in the image of God. She specializes in supporting adolescents, college students, and young adult women who are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, relational and family issues, grief and loss, identity and self-worth issues, stress management, adjustment issues, school-related concerns, and major life transitions.
Counseling from a holistic perspective, as well as drawing from her education and life experiences, Jeannette integrates a strengths-based, person-centered approach. In addition, she has experience and specialized training in trauma focused treatment strategies, including Brainspotting. She offers a personable therapeutic relationship and seeks to create a safe, non-judgmental space, where her clients are welcomed to honestly explore their stories.
Outside of work, Jeannette enjoys hiking, exploring new cities, learning about other cultures, gathering with neighbors and friends, engaging in authentic conversations, and going on adventures with her husband and their three children.
