Assessment and treatment are guided by empirically based methods specific to trauma, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, addictions, interpersonal difficulties, and personality disorders. Jeannette’s approach is client-centred primarily using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and EMDR Therapy techniques. Couple’s therapy is guided by Dr John Gottman’s, Gottman Method, and Dr Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Couple’s Therapy.
