Jeana Wescott, MDiv, MA, Psychotherapist
Jeana understands the vulnerability it takes to make the first step to come into the therapeutic space. She believes in collaboration with clients to offer a safe environment that promotes a positive sense of self and encourages lasting change. She is available for appointments Monday-Friday and available evenings.
Jeana enjoys working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families. She specializes in depression, anxiety, life transitions, trauma, grief and loss, intimate partner violence, divorce, family conflict, and spirituality. Her experience working with couples explores gaining healthy communication, relationship repair, gaining connection, and reaching emotional intimacy. She enjoys her work with women who desire personal growth and self-compassion, addressing emotional and sexual health concerns and obtaining physical wellness alongside mental health.
Jeana holds a Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. She received a Master of Divinity in Interreligious Chaplaincy from the United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities. Jeana is available to combine her theology, chaplaincy, and counseling skills, providing person-centered care. Her spiritual care experience utilizes compassion to assess religious, spiritual, and existential concerns integrated throughout the therapy process. She believes in the client’s values, cultural values, and beliefs. As a professional, she does not promote a particular spiritual or religious agenda. Jeana is specialty trained in interreligious dialogue to meet people wherever they are on their spiritual journey.
