Jeanne Cross - LCSW
- Offers sessions only online
Jeanne treats people of all backgrounds and all are welcome.
We all have the desire to be 1) fully known and 2) fully loved though fear we must choose between the two—that if our past, insecurities, or flaws were fully known, we would lose out on the belonging and connection we crave. In our work together, I will create a space for you to feel both fully seen and supported deep in your bones, no questions asked. No topic or thing shared is too “off limits” or taboo. I will remain warm, open, and non-judgmental and create a space for you to find freedom from the weight and the pain that is holding you back so that you can more fully create the life that you want. I welcome all clients, but specialize in work with folks processing trauma, engaging in patterns of behavior that developed to keep you safe though may no longer serve you, LGBTQIA+, estrangement or difficulties with family, divorce, grief and loss, anxiety, depression and anger. In the words of Audre Lorde, “If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.” In our work together, I will help you more fully create the life you want by ‘defining yourself for yourself’ –sifting through the voices around you so that you may more fully identify and honor your own. This process remains the task and the gift of a lifetime. I have a knack for genuinely connecting with those I work with, and helping them feel seen, supported, and heard. I have a double-master’s in Social Work and Religion through Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and am formally trained in EMDR and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy with more than a decade of experience.
