Jeannine Crofton, Registered Psychologist“To conquer frustration, one must remain intensely focused on the outcome, not the obstacles” ~ T.F. Hodge
Jeannine began working with couples in 1997 with the goal of bringing harmony to those relationships. Since that simple conceptualization she has come to understand many of the complexities of how couples come to be together, and stay great together. She also understands how to create meaning and collaboration when transitioning a relationship due to a separation or divorce.
Your experience working with Jeannine will be different than working with other marital therapist’s. Her analytical approach takes you beyond reflecting and communication strategies. Your interaction with your partner will be examined from a “power frame” and strategies will be tailor-made to establish a new way of interacting that meets both spouses’ needs. Incrementally you will build on each success until your relationship reflects your current goals.

The following outlines my process:
Session one: informed consent, history and goal setting
Session two: time with each spouse individually to screen for affairs, violence and to be clear on perspective, During that time the other spouse completes standardized testing to identify strengths of marriage and examine motivation to change.
Session three: Education about conflict styles and identification of your primary conflict style. Assessment of how power is used in the relationship and the resulting communication difficulties
Session four: Engage clients in deep conversation uncovering the deeper issues motivating the disharmony, continuing to work towards goals established in session one.
Session five onwards: Increasing understanding and providing strategies aimed at helping clients meet their goals.
On a more personal note I married my childhood sweetheart and we now have three school-aged children. Our days are filled with work commitments, children’s activities and time with friends and family. I enjoy running, cooking and paddle boarding with anyone who will join me.
