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 relational dynamics that influence clients and the way they experience key 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, Prepare-Enrich and psychoeducation.

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 in private practice under clinical supervision to complete licensure. Before becoming a therapist I worked in residential treatment, human resources and market research. I have twenty years of experience as a mentor, leader and peer counselor to youth, women and families. I have been married to my husband for more than ten years, and we are honored to be part of the military community. I enjoy practicing endurance through running, biking and spending quality time with my family outdoors.
