MSW, Temple University 1988
Psychotherapist, private practice 1988
Janine began her private psychotherapy practice in 1998. Her clients have come to rely on her compassionate approach to dealing with their concerns of loss and grief, anxiety, depression and LBGTQ issues, and from which they gain body, mind and spirit balance.
She received her Graduate degree from Temple University’s School of Social Work in 1988 and her psychotherapy certificate from the Gestalt Therapy Institute of Philadelphia in 1993. Before starting her own practice, she was on staff as a Medical and Geriatric Social Worker at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. She joined the Board of GTIP in 2020.
Janine spends a great deal of her time engaged with issues pertaining to race, equality and justice. She brings these issues into her life in many ways including her therapy practice, as a political activist, and through community involvement and service. Of critical importance to her are the conversations of caste and social location.
As the mother of two adult children whom she co-parented with her former partner, she has a profound understanding and has guided others in how to create a successful non-traditional family structure.
She dedicates her spare time to her increasing passion for working out, hiking and biking, and she can often be found running the steps at a train station, planking on a bench, or traversing paths in the woods. She is also an avid gardener and loves to cook.
