Youth and Family Therapist

Jenienne Beauchene image 1.PNG

I am Janiene and this is Abby. Please learn a little about us and how we can help you and those you care about.

I have been a youth and family therapist in private practice for fifteen years.

Healing from trauma is a courageous act. When suffering from a trauma most people feel isolated and cannot relate to their family or experience the joys being connected with others. I am a compassionate therapist and provide a safe atmosphere that honors my client's unique journey toward healing. Trauma can arise from child abuse/neglect, sexual assault, intentional violence, war, motor vehicle accidents, partner battery and natural disasters. Working in collaboration together, we will find the way through the trauma and reform it as a challenge, pain as awareness and growth and the future as opportunity.

  • Assist youth and families to build and maintain strong relationships
  • Teach parents skills to help their children not only change challenging behavior, but shift to a place of deep healing and connection.
  • Address family of origin issues with parents allowing them to cope with their past, so that they can remain responsive, engaged and calm during stressful times.
  • Assist in working through trauma coming from child abuse, neglect, sexual assault, and violence.
  • Assist those going through the stages of grief and helping them learn how to live beyond the loss.
  • As a collaborative divorce coach:
  • Help each spouse manage the pain and strain of changing relationships while focusing on goals for the present and the future.
  • As a neutral child specialist: Help create parenting time plans and parenting arrangements that are customized to fit the unique needs of their family.

Family Therapy

“The absolute essence of parenting is being able to step outside of your own emotional discomfort in order to meet your child at his level of emotional discomfort.”
Heather T. Forbes, LCSW

“The absolute essence of parenting is being able to step outside of your own emotional discomfort in order to meet your child at his level of emotional discomfort.”  Heather T. Forbes, LCSW

Recently, I was contacted by two parents looking for assistance with their two teenage children. The siblings were really angry with each other and couldn’t communicate without verbal and sometimes physical violence. I met with each teen individually and with the parents together before scheduling a family session.  I worked to develop relationships with the individual family members in order to build trust that Abby and I could help their family connect and learn new skills to communicate respectfully with each other.

My first goal was to gather information about and understand each teen’s concerns on the given problem: What stands in the way of the two siblings communicating respectfully to each other? My second goal was to find out the specific concerns of the parents and their perspective of the problem. Our third goal would be to brain storm solutions that were realistic and mutually satisfactory to each member.

I also have asked the parents about their family of origins. It was interesting that each of the parents had one sibling each and they were disconnected from them.  In this family, the two teens were the only children on both sides. The family ties with the grandparents existed, but their relationships did not seem to offer mutual support. Everyone was reactive rather thane actively listening and responding with curiosity.  To solve the family problem, each family member needed the willingness to look at everyone’s different perspective and be willing to brainstorm and come up with collaborative solutions that were mutually satisfactory and realistic.
