About Jeanne

Calm mind, open heart

With 40 years of experience in the healing arts, I hold a deep appreciation for how our mind, body, and spirit are interconnected. Human beings function as integrated systems and a change in one part of the system will echo, either positively or negatively, in other parts of the system. I believe – and practice – that a calm mind and open heart help us live more authentically, more in touch with ourselves, with others, and with our natural environment.

jeannemalmIn “previous lives” I worked as a yoga/meditation teacher, massage therapist, and editor at The Mother Earth News magazine. After a long career in journalism (which included 20 years as a writer and editor at Florida’s largest newspaper), I entered graduate school at age 52 and earned a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Clemson University. I’m now a nationally board-certified counselor (NCC) and a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I have experience working with clients of all ages, but my clinical focus is adults. I am a member of the South Carolina Counseling Association, South Carolina Clinical Mental Health Counselor Association, American Counseling Association, and American Mental Health Counselors Association. I have received post-graduate training in art therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I’m also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. In 2019 I earned a certificate in Clinical Ecotherapy from the Earthbody Institute in Oakland, California.

Whatever difficulties you may be facing, I look forward to working with you as we explore ways to restore balance and wellness in your life. Together, we will focus on stabilizing turbulent emotions, identifying and mobilizing your uniquely personal coping skills, and formulating goals to help you move forward into a healthier, happier life.

I specialize in treating issues of midlife, aging, grief and loss, trauma, depression, anxiety, anger management, and life transitions. My clinical and personal experience spans a wide variety of concerns:

  • Marital/relationship strife
  • Parenting challenges
  • Pregnancy loss
  • Adoption
  • Divorce
  • Physical/emotional abuse
