Janine Dean, MA, LMFTA

I work with individuals, couples and families in all stages of life.  My approach is based in structural family therapy which considers important relational dynamics that influence how we experience life and relationships. Assessments and interventions I use come out of my training in Bowen family systems theory, emotionally focused therapy (EFT), the Gottman method, discernment counseling, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

As a Christian, I recognize that one's spiritual life can be a source of strength in the healing process. I value privacy, self-determination and empathy in my work with clients. I have treated issues related to depression, anxiety, infidelity, grief, loss, serious illness, parenting, family stage transitions, deployment, post-military readjustment, caregiver stress, military sexual trauma, combat trauma, traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress.

I am happily married to my husband of more than ten years and we are honored to be part of the military community. I practice endurance through self-care, faith, exercise and being outdoors.
