Jeanine Marie Austin Stotts, LCSW (California and Arizona)
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
My mission is to create a warm, emotionally safe and compassionate environment for clients. The therapeutic environment is always kind, understanding and nonjudgmental. My overriding goal is to match each person with the specific treatment modality and psychoeducation that will best support well-being. Recognition and integration of one’s unique strengths and interpersonal resources are emphasized in the course of treatment.
I have been in the helping profession since the early 80s. People often ask me why after so many years I am still excited to help people. It is because this work is truly my passion. I love being part of a support system in which people overcome obstacles and thrive. I am honored to work with those who summon the courage to take steps to begin therapy.
During my career, my primary focus has been helping those who have anxiety, parents of those with neurodevelopmental challenges and people impacted by traumatic events. I also enjoy working with those who have been affected by narcissism (not in romantic relationships). I have been trained in the most effective modalities to treat these aforementioned challenges. I have twice attended summer school at Oxford University’s Mindfulness Centre in England to study Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and was awarded a bursary for the year 2019. I am a designated international Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy teacher. I am also trained in many modalities (see Therapies Offered page). I truly love learning and I am consistently training and learning.
I have a License in Clinical Social Work (LCSW) in Arizona and California (since 1994) and have practiced as an LCSW in New Jersey. I have a bachelor’s degree in Social Work and a master’s degree in Social Work. In 2006, I earned a non-traditional doctorate in life coaching. In the course of my career, I’ve published a book for children in congregate care (Candie Canary’s New Home), was featured in a bestselling therapy book by Kaduson and Schaefer, been featured on many radio shows (most notably with John Trudell) and lectured with Marianne Williamson and Jerry Jampolsky, MD.
