"Jeana is one of the best human beings I've ever met. Caring and compassionate she will do whatever she can to help you through your problems."

"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."

"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 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! I still struggled for quite awhile, but it has now been 6 months since I acted on any of my bulimic behaviors and I smile all the time! I forgot how life can actually feel 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!"

"I needed help with my teenage son. He was angry all the time, would not talk to me or his dad about it and I suspected he was using drugs. I set up an appointment with a counselor to talk about my concerns. She was able to see me that week and we made a plan. My son started meeting with her. He really liked her and opened up to her. It did take him some time to develop trust, but she was so patient with him and helped me to not feel frustrated. We were also able to meet for family sessions. Now, I feel like I have my son back. We all have learned how to communicate better and our family is actually happy! I am one of the only moms I know that has a 15 year old boy who likes to hang out with his mom (even though he won't admit it!). Thank you!"

"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!!"

"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 coaching and interest in my life."
Sherry W., Plano
"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!"
Amy M., McKinney
"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!"
Chrystal G., Frisco
"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 councilor, you won't be able to heal. Jeana is someone I can share anything with and let her in my world. Where I'm normally guarded and shut down, I trust Jeana and let her in with my thoughts, feelings and pain. Her office is an eviroment that is warm, welcoming and a place, I am allowed to express myself freely. 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. I don't hold anything back when I talk with her mentally or emotionally. I love seating 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, when I meet with her, I don't even feel like I'm in a session with her. It feels like I'm talking with a very close trusted friend. Its 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 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!!"
Lori H., McKinney
"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."
Amy H., Sherman
"Jeana is a wonderful partner in personal empowerment and development. She has an uncanny memory and intuitive sense which adds another level of depth to the counseling experience. It is obvious she has a true passion for her profession and a real sense of care for the people in which she provides guidance. She is a breath of fresh air and provides another way of viewing situations to people going through various life transitions."
Linda M., McKinney
"Jeana is truly an amazing therapist. She's so insiteful and has wonderful advise. My husband and I have been going together to work on the marriage and I go individually. It's really helped me and my husband see a different side of things from some else's perspective. I love A Safe Place To Heal because I'm finally healing in ways I never could have imagined."
Kriten M., Allen
"I've been with Jeana for a little over 3 years. That pretty much says it all. She's amazing!"
