About Jeanine Marie

About Jeanine

I have been in the helping profession since the early 80s. People often ask me why after so many years I am still excited to help people. It is because this work is truly my passion. I love being part of a support system in which people overcome obstacles and thrive. I am honored to work with those who summon the courage to take steps to begin therapy.

During my career, my primary focus has been helping those who have anxiety, parents of those with neurodevelopmental challenges and people impacted by traumatic events. I also enjoy working with those who have been affected by narcissism (not in romantic relationships). I have been trained in the most effective modalities to treat these aforementioned  challenges. I have twice attended summer school at Oxford University’s Mindfulness Centre in England to study Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and was awarded a bursary for the year 2019. I am a designated international Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy teacher. I am also trained in many modalities (see Therapies Offered page). I truly love learning and I am consistently training and learning.

I have a License in Clinical Social Work (LCSW) in Arizona and California (since 1994) and have practiced as an LCSW in New Jersey. I have a bachelor’s degree in Social Work and a master’s degree in Social Work. In 2006, I earned a non-traditional doctorate in life coaching. In the course of my career, I’ve published a book for children in congregate care (Candie Canary’s New Home), was featured in a bestselling therapy book by Kaduson and Schaefer, been featured on many radio shows (most notably with John Trudell) and lectured with Marianne Williamson and Jerry Jampolsky, MD.
