Psychotherapy And ReCovery Coaching


Psychotherapy aims at increasing your well-being, personal and professional relationships while working through issues that have a deeper impact on present day functioning that may include trauma, addiction and substance abuse issues, complex behavioral health issues such as depression and anxiety, co-occurring disorders, family of origin issues, gender identity and LGBTQ issues. Psychotherapy tends to work better in person, although telephone or internet sessions can be available, depending on personal needs and schedule.  Jean has over thirty years of experience in abstinence based 12-step programs, and over twelve years of experience in harm-reduction, motivational interviewing, CBT/DBT, and Mindfulness based practices.

Recovery Coaching is  an active collaboration with executives, individuals and couples that is ideal for focusing on current professional and/or professional issues surrounding addiction.  Coaching can help maximize both professional and personal outcomes, desired growth and increased quality of life. The coaching relationship can develop the awareness, steps, support and motivation that can lead to healthy change while creating the career, relationships and recovery lifestyles you deserve. Issues ideal for coaching are recovery from addiction in areas of substance use and relationships, development of healthier sober & clean lifestyles, relationship transitions due to addiction, and important life transitions in all areas of career, health or family.  Jean also works collaboratively with Business and Corporate Executives, utilizing her own past experience as a business development and sales Executive in both Fortune 500 and start-up software companies that included mergers, acquisitions and a successful NASDAQ IPO .
