Jenée O’Brien MS, LMFTA- Accepting New Clients September '23

Life is a journey that requires courage and support to thrive. Caring for your mental health is a basic need we all have. Imagine a safe place to come as you are. I will help you to see you are enough. We start by loving what is and grow from there. I believe that early childhood experiences inform our understanding of relationships and how we see the world as well as how we move through it for better or worse. At intake, I will hear your story, patterns, and goals, and we will customize a care plan that fits you. I am passionate about helping couples, individuals, and families discover more within themselves and develop deep and lasting bonds and relationships. Let me help you get unstuck from patterns or habits that don’t serve your ultimate goals and be a safe place to discuss what matters. My training and orientation are bio-psycho-social-spiritual and systemic. This just means I consider all of you. You are a combination of your experiences, gender, race, culture, knowledge, relationships, beliefs, and so much more. Together we will discover more of you and navigate the bumps along your road which may include understanding your patterns, adapting to new situations, repairing injuries, renewing trust, strengthening bonds, setting boundaries, and moving away from rigid patterns. I use various evidence-based methods according to your individual goals and needs. These may include EFT, DBT, CBT, Prepare-Enrich, SF, or NT. I also love to use mindfulness and brief guided meditations to end our time together. Beyond doing the work that brings you in, my goal is that you leave every session feeling more at peace than when you arrived. Outside of work I cherish my role as a mother of two kids and as a partner to my best friend and husband of 17 years. I treasure the communities I am connected to and the friendships that have made me a better friend, wife, mother, and human. I have learned to value mistakes, hardships, and transitions as tools that have helped shape the strength, wisdom, and joy I continue to grow as a fellow work-in-progress. You will often find me reading a book about psychology, traveling, listening to a health or spiritual podcast, taking a long walk with a friend, or relaxing with my family at home. Specialties:
