Feeling overwhelmed?  Struggling to cope?  Problems in your relationships?  Many times life presents us with challenges we don’t have the resources to manage.  Dr. Jeanne McAllister, Ph.D. works with individuals to identify the source of their problems and to develop skills to meet those challenges.  This can be by developing new ways of thinking about their problems and themselves and new ways of responding to situations. She also focuses on individuals’ coping styles and helping individuals learn and adopt coping strategies that work in their current life situations.

Jeanne is an advanced generalist and is trained in counseling and substance abuse treatment.  She has 20 years of experience working in outpatient mental health.  

Jeanna is a trauma specialist and works to empower victims of all types of trauma. Trauma-focused therapy uses a range of techniques for the purpose of dissipating the difficult feelings experienced by a trauma victim through a change in his or her thoughts, beliefs, and behavior.
