Jean Lane Snyder is a registered marriage and family therapist intern and received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Community and Human Services from the State University of New York, and her Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Liberty University in Virginia. She also holds a Master’s Certified Substance Abuse Provider (MCAP) certification in the State of Florida. She completed her first Internship at a local Florida mental health facility as a Sr. Mental Health Therapist providing therapy to children and adolescents, and their families. Additionally, as a substance abuse provider, she has worked at both For-Profit and Non-Profit organizations, with children, adolescents and adults using Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapies. Jean has had experience working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, ADHD and behavioral problems, grief-loss, self-harm, addiction, relational issues, domestic violence, trauma and life transitions.
While working in the field in many settings, Jean recognized that there was a real need to incorporate families into the therapy process when a client presents with needs for intervention; because oftentimes it stems from underlying problems within the family setting that go unnoticed or unmet. From a systemic approach, she works with the family to assist them to first identify the presenting problem(s), and work to find their own solutions to their identified problems. Jean values the client/therapist relationship as the most important factor to implement change.
