More about me

Licensing: EdD, LPC
Years in Practice: 19
State: VA

Hello, my name is Dr. Jeanette Gaines.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I received my Doctorate of Education in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University in Chicago Illinois. I received my Masters of Education in School Counseling and a Bachelors of Art in Psychology both from Delta State University in Cleveland Mississippi.

I have been practicing counseling since 1999. I started my counseling career as a School Guidance Counselor. I worked as a School Guidance Counselor for 4 years. Then, I worked as a Child and Youth Counselor in the private sector. I have been providing counseling exclusively to service members and their families since 2011. Additionally, I served 13 years in the United Stated Army Reserves as a Psychiatric Specialist. Over the years I have developed expertise in working with Service Members and their families.

I provide individual, family, marital, child/youth, and group counseling. Areas of expertise include: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, self-esteem, family dysfunctions, behavioral modification, anger management, stress reduction, and domestic violence.

I have a private practice in Virginia Beach. I work with Service Members and their families. I specialize in military issues such as PTSD, trauma, deployment, separation, reintegration, fear, grief, and loss. Also, I provide Marriage and Family Counseling. I help families with issues such as divorce, separation, blended families, parent/child relationships, parenting skills, infidelity and trust. Additionally, I provide Child and Youth Counseling. I specialize in behavioral modification, school adjustment, social skills training, self esteem issues, emotional issues, motivational issues, and goal setting.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
