Jeanette Grant, M.S., AMFT #96542

Jeanette is an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist. Jeanette believes life is all about relationships and how we care for them.  Sometimes we become complacent and forget to strive for that common goal of relating in a way that is healthy and balanced.  It is her heart’s desire to bring a sense of harmony to couples and families experiencing small bumps or major roadblocks in their relationships.  She has a lifetime of experience to tap into, as well as a Master's Degree from California Baptist University Master’s program in Counseling Psychology. CBU teaches a variety of modalities encompassing an array of perspectives for all ages.

Jeanette spent her practicum hours working at a shelter for at-risk youth, ages ranging from 11 to 17, and their families.  Some were homeless, runaways, abused, drug-addicted, and trafficked, but there were also those who just had difficulties trying to fit in at school and at home.
After years of raising four beautiful children with her husband of 30 years and all that comes with it, she currently have 12 grandchildren.  Jeanette has also been a teacher in both private and public school, where she found a great need for families to be heard and understood beyond the academics and homework struggles.
