Janine Dean, MA, LMFTA

I work with individuals, couples and families to facilitate healthy connection and growth in their most important relationships. I approach therapy from a systemic perspective that is based in clinical training. Assessments and interventions I use come from structural family therapy, Bowen family systems theory, emotionally focused therapy, the Gottman method, prepare-enrich, discernment counseling and lifespan integration.

I value privacy, self-determination and empathy with my clients. I also recognize that a spiritual life can be a foundational source of strength in the healing process. I personally practice endurance through my Christian faith, exercise, self-care, time outdoors, travel and enjoying marriage with my husband of more than ten years.
