Janine Gordon, MA, RMHCI
Janine approaches counseling through an individual and holistic lens, using practices tailored to each client’s unique life experiences and cultural identities. Her goal is to nurture a strong therapeutic relationship and create a non-judgmental safe space where everyone can be their true authentic selves, leading with compassion, empathy, curiosity, and humor. Janine affirms and honors clients’ unique experiences while working to develop insight, identify patterns, and create new ways to move forward. She is a fierce ally and advocates for populations who have been marginalized and works to dismantle systems of oppression within the therapy room.
Janine works with children, teens, young adults, adults, couples, and families struggling with a wide range of issues; she is especially passionate about working with those experiencing anxiety, OCD, trauma, LGTBQ+, and gender identity-related concerns, life transitions and adjustments, and relationship concerns. Janine uses an integrated approach tailored to each individual client, drawing from person-centered, acceptance and commitment, narrative, existential, feminist, expressive arts, affirmative, and cognitive-behavioral therapies.
Janine is a Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern with a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University. In her free time, she likes to spend time outside, cook and eat vegan food, roller skate, tend to her plants, read something from her never-ending list, and casually discuss the meaning of life with friends over coffee.
