Janine Ilsley, LMSW
About Janine Ilsley
I approach our time in therapy with a "beginner's mind" - that is, recognizing my role as both the observer and listener of client's stories in knowing that we, as individuals, are far greater than what our past experiences assume us to be. Therapy offers a vantage point to bear witness to the narratives that block the inner wisdom of our mind and body. I work with adolescents and young adults with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, stress and anger management, low self-worth, interpersonal relationships, coping with life transitions, and navigating the Spiritual Path of awakening.
There is no formulaic method or “one-size-fits all” approach. I see my training in evidence-based modalities, mindfulness-based practices, and trauma-informed techniques, as well as my studies in developmental neurosciences, all as different vistas through which I can view the individual and provide support in a more Wholehearted way.
I seek to cultivate a warm, contained nurturing space characterized by unconditional acceptance, compassionate connection, and loving-kindness. Contact me to set up a complimentary consultation or appointment. Don't just survive. Thrive!
