Jeannie Oestreicher, S. E. P., M. A., S.D.
Jeannie has worked as a spiritual director since 2005 and has completed a two year certification program through Christian Formation and Direction Ministries. She currently provides individual spiritual direction in the La Mesa area.
Jeannie’s training includes the completion of a three year certification training in Somatic Experiencing (an approach to healing unresolved stress and trauma), as well as earning an MA in Clinical Psychology, resulting in her license as a Marriage and Family Therapist. Jeannie works full time for a San Diego Agency providing mental health services to foster youth and their families. Jeannie also has a small private practice where she provides therapy to individuals and families. Her specialties include working with attachment and unresolved stress and trauma. She works with individuals and families, with children and adults.
While spiritual direction does not always directly pull from all of Jeannie's training, her orientation to spiritual direction is colored by her education, and she tends toward an integrative approach to health and healing.
