Jeannette Diddens has been a strengths-based therapist helping clients and professionals with burnout prevention, compassion fatigue, disconnection/disengagement, and generalized anxiety for over two decades. Her life experiences encouraged her towards the social sciences and ultimately her passion for family dynamics. She finds meaning in connecting with others through listening and learning about our roles in the community and how we can find value in our relationships with others and with ourselves.
From guiding educators, administrators, parents, therapists and nurses, Jeannette has found that wellness and mind-body nurturing is the most effective tool for transforming compassion fatigue into personal and professional flourishing. Through cognitive behavioral therapy, Jeanette can help you reconstruct old destructive narratives into new and helpful pathways of learning and growing.
Jeannette is seasoned in helping couples, using tools from The Gottman Method of Couples Therapy. In her experience, couples begin to build a stronger foundation, manage conflict, improve communication and intimacy while working with her.. Through her use of positive psychology and strengths-based techniques, couples realize that counseling can be a powerfully restorative tool instead of an ultimatum or a “last-ditch effort” for their relationship.
Jeannette creates a grounded environment, helping her guests feel comfortable and open to share their thoughts by talking. Using thoughtful and intentional questions, she is able to help clients gain a deeper understanding of their own thoughts and emotions, realizing that they have the answers within themselves.
Jeannette has completed a course in walking therapy and upon request, can walk and talk with clients for an added experiential individual or couple’s session. This is perfect for a walk around Sevier Park!
Favorite feel-good activities:
Simply taking a walk. Whether it be in the mornings to set my daily intentions, or with my husband to reflect on our work day, or with my family to walk through one of Nashville’s many beautiful parks.
Take care of yourself like your life depends on it, because it does.
