What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions. Thriveworks helps people live happier, more fulfilling lives. Clients are guided and supported as they work through their unique mental health challenges – and, along the way, shown the life-changing power of therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including CBT / Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems. As a clinician with a wide scope of practice experience, and an individual living with a mental health disorder, I understand the importance of providing a balance of empathy, directness, positive regard, and the ability to teach the tools of coping skills to manage mental health symptoms and other stressors in order to thrive!

What should we know about your experiences and background?

Jean Mitchell is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 23 years of direct clinical services and social work business management experience in a variety of settings. These include community mental health, hospital-based crisis stabilization, long-term care, hospice, and substance use outpatient and residential treatment. Jean is credentialed/paneled with Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and most major private insurance companies. Jean places importance on working with a diverse population of individuals and has knowledge and experience that includes respect for, sensitivity to, and understanding of cultural differences. Jean's direct services practice areas are individual and group mental/behavioral health services, substance use treatment services, life skills coaching and education, LGBTQ+ issues (particularly working with transgender and gender fluid individuals), domestic violence, women's issues, adolescents (particularly girls), and grief and aging issues. Jean is a graduate of the inaugural class (1997-1999) of the Joint MSW (JMSW) program at North Carolina A & T State University and the University of North Carolina-Greensboro, where she received her MSW degree in 1999. Jean received a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in psychology and a minor in sociology at the University of Houston in 1996. It was Jean's own experience with mental/behavioral health issues that led her to social work and clinical therapy as a profession. This is a second career for Jean, as she worked in Business Management in the oilfield industry prior to making the decision to return to school to complete her Bachelor of Science and Master of Social Work degrees. Since receiving her MSW degree, Jean has worked in a variety of roles, including direct service and business management for public health and behavioral health organizations. Jean has experience in providing a broad range of treatment interventions including CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), DBT (dialectical behavior therapy), motivational interviewing, solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, experiential therapy, and structured interventions. At some point in life, most people face challenges that can make day-to-day functioning difficult, whether that be mental health, behavioral health, life stressors, loss, or grief. Jean's own life experience, coupled with her experience as a clinical therapist, makes her particularly suited to work with a diverse population of individuals. She does note that while she cannot "fix" you, she can work with you to help you identify your issues and find solutions to help you fix yourself. If you are ready to do that, schedule an appointment with her today!
