Hi Jeana! I think you are such a wonderful person. I wish I could award you on a National LPC Day! You are a really thoughtful and caring person. And because of that, I am grateful the Lord placed you in my life. You make my week so much brighter every time I get to see you. Thank you for everything you do for me and how much you help me. I think you are such a sweet person and you are awesome:) I really appreciate having you in my life because you hep me so much! You are such an amazing person.
Jeana is a wonderful counselor. I grew in personal empowerment and development while working with her. She has an uncanny memory. She is incredibly intuitive which adds another level of depth to the counseling experience. So, it is obvious she has a true passion for her profession. She cares about me and I can tell. She is a breath of fresh air! For me, her approach provided another way of viewing situations. I think her style would help people going through various life transitions.
Recovering from Bulimia
I had been struggling with bulimia for 5 years when I called A Safe Place to Heal. Over the years, I had been to countless therapists, doctors and dietitians with no lasting results. I began seeing a therapist at A Safe Place to Heal and felt hopeful after the first session. While I still engaged in my eating disorder for quite awhile, I gradually got better. It has been 6 months since I acted on any of my bulimic behaviors. I am so much better and I smile all the time! Life can actually feel amazing as a happy, confident woman. My therapist helped me to rediscover my inner and outer beauty. I still attend monthly sessions for ongoing support and am so thankful I was referred to here for help!”
She doesn’t judge me
I’ve been seeing Jeana for several years. She has truly helped me through some difficult times. I know that is the only person in my life who is nonjudgmental. When I am in her office, it feels like a safe haven. I go to her because she helps me see that I am indeed a person of worth, and then from that place goes on to help me figure out what I can do to make my life better. She’s always there for me, and will do anything she can to help me. The entire office is professional and caring, and you feel that the moment you step in there. I would recommend her to anyone who needs kind, supportive help.
Jeana provided me a great deal of support when my marriage ended. I learned to think healthy and rational thoughts as I started to date again. This was not easy because I had transitioned out of a long, dysfunctional and toxic relationship. She helped me as I navigated the dating world looking for a healthy partner. Jeana put me at ease which allowed me to be open about difficult and very personal subject matters.
I love talking to my counselor!
My experience working with Jeana has been awesome. My favorite part about A Safe Place to Heal is knowing I’m walking into a safe atmosphere and I can be real with my therapist where healing can take place. If you can’t be real or open with your counselor, you won’t be able to heal. Jeana is someone I can share anything with and let her in my world. Normally, I am guarded and I will shut down emotionally. Since I trust Jeana, I tell her all about my thoughts, feelings and pain.
Her office is a warm, welcoming environment. I allow myself to talk freely when I am with Jeana. I always enjoy and look forward to meeting with Jeana for a number of reasons. Jeana allows me to get real and raw in my appointments. So, I don’t hold anything back, mentally or emotionally, when we talk. I love sitting on her couch and knowing whatever I process and share with her matters to her.
Jeana makes it easy to connect with and relate to. Sometimes I don’t even feel like I’m in a session with her because it feels like I’m talking with a very close trusted friend. It’s so important to find a therapist, who is relational. I have been able to develop a great relationship working with Jeana. I appreciate her fresh approach, open mindedness and that she is so down to earth real. Jeana is professional, trustworthy, confident, caring, kind and dedicated to her patients. I highly recommend her and have found A Safe Place to Heal to be a great source for me to heal on my journey & help me in my life.
I am stronger now
Jeana has provided me with a safe place to heal for many months now. She has always been professional, non-judgemental, empathetic, attentive, and kind. She is also direct with me in helping me navigate through the struggles I am facing. She’s been an incredible partner in my journey to finding peace and strength. She is so intuitive, I often feel as if she is reading my mind even when I am not around her. I feel very fortunate that I found her.
My last attempt at Counseling
To begin counseling is a very brave decision because it can be frightening. I found a Safe Place to Heal on the internet. I was looking for someone to help me with an eating disorder that I have battled since childhood. At my wit’s end, feeling like my life was completely out of control, I emailed my counselor to find out about appointments. I have been working with her for almost two years now. Facing my eating disorder, my low self-esteem, my depression, and my overall patterns of addiction has been so hard. It means giving up the secrets I keep. There are a lot of secrets, but in recovery, the secrets all come out. The shame, humiliation, and anxiety have lived within me for years. Today, I am closer than ever to freedom from those things. And I could not have done it without my counselor. I know she is doing her job, but she knows me better than my mom (or anyone else) does. I really feel so safe when I talk to her, like she can help me ease the pain. I’ve seen other counselors before for various things, but none of them have helped me the way this one has. I truly feel such gratitude for her and I know there is no way I will be able to thank her enough for what she has done for me. If you feel alone, afraid, ashamed or even like you could die from your disease, call them, email them. A Safe Place to Heal could just save your life. They saved mine!
I found peace
I remember the first day of therapy…I was devastated by a loved ones alcohol addiction and the loss of our relationship. Sincerely thought that it was me who was hitting rock bottom. Through therapy, I have learned a great deal about myself, as well as his addiction. I wish I had the knowledge back then that I have learned through my sessions. Therapy opened the door to my inner spirituality, something that I had never experienced before…I learned how to actually Let Go and surrender…what a peaceful feeling!!
I am still transforming!
Jeana has been a constant in my life for several years and I look to her as a trusted partner in my life decision process. Her style is engaging yet direct and empowering. My experience working with Jeana was transformational for me and it can be for you too. She’s smart, intuitive, realistic and shows a keen understanding of all types of issues. I truly don’t know where I would be without her counsel and interest in my life.
A new beginning!
Jeana saved my life at a moment where I thought I had lost everything. Jeana helped me rebuild myself after more than a decade of moral and physical abuse. Jeana knows how to listen and make you feel comfortable so you can really express everything you have on your mind and in your heart. I highly recommend Jeana as your choice of therapist!
I can say she is the best listener. She also helps you realize your own short commings and helps guide you through your source of pain. I came away feeling better and she’s very sincere in her attitude and support!
She kicked me!
Jeana is truly a one in a million kind of therapist. Knowledgeable, kind and full of grace and empathy. She will gently guide you on your journey or give you a swift kick if you need one. Metaphorically I mean.
No longer a victim
As a child, I was a victim of incest. As a result, I had no self-esteem and was afraid of men. When I first came to A Safe Place to Heal, I was in what I call a “black hole”. All I could see was darkness. Everything in my life seemed like an impossible hurdle to overcome. I was basically just existing…..waiting and praying for the day I would die so my suffering would end. I had been to counselors before, but for whatever reason they weren’t a good fit for me. I found A Safe Place to Heal while surfing the internet and thought I would give it one more try. From day one, I truly felt safe there. I was never made to do anything that I wasn’t comfortable with. After a year of therapy, I am now free from the shackles of fear. I no longer live in a “black hole”. I now live my life the way I had always dreamed of…the way that I saw others living their lives and had always envied. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could ever get to this place, but here I am finally living.
She is the best!
Love her! She has been the first person, after years of trying, that my daughter has bonded with. In a short amount of time I have seen a change and hopefully this change will continue to grow as time progresses. Thank you Jeana for bringing my child back from a dark place!
