"Jeannine’s unerring sense of the sacredness in human interactions makes it possible for others to evolve into new levels of consciousness and relationship. Her wisdom, derived through years of experience and real insight, offers a rare and transformative possibility for all who seek spiritual and psychological freedom. I wholeheartedly recommend her.”
- Mary Thomas, M.A. psychotherapist
"Jeannine is an extraordinarily talented clinician, who instinctively seems to understand exactly how best to work with each client. Her clients' are very devoted to her but apart from her outstanding ability to build rapport and a therapeutic alliance; even more significantly the clients she sees ‘get well’. I highly recommend her."

"Jeannine is a pioneer in consciousness research… Her deeply humanistic approach nurtures the wisdom of intuition, higher awareness, and insight through relatedness as a way to liberate from fear and inauthenticity and live from an open heart..."
- Maia Gay PhD Mathematics, M.I.T. Former professor at Dartmouth College and Vermont College-Union Institute.
"I strongly recommend Dr. Jeannine Davies to all seeking self-exploration, transformation, and the courage to live an authentic life no matter the successes and tribulations. She is a true healer: bringing great light and wisdom not only to her profession, but to humanity and purely devoted to supporting the journey of personal freedom, and "higher human relatedness" and growth in the individuals, couples, colleagues, and friends she serves and supports."

Training & Experience
I have a master's degree in Psychology and a Ph.D in Clinical Psychology from Saybrook University, in San Francisco. My dissertation examined the healing value of intersubjectivity (the shared space between self and other) in overcoming suffering and fostering our higher human potentials and freedom. A transformative model I call Relational Dharma, was created out of this research and is currently being applied as a means to resolve individual and collective traumatic stress and activate our higher human potentials.
I have studied and received training in both classical and contemporary therapeutic modalities, including existential humanistic; awareness or mindfulness and insight (Buddhist) approaches; somatic body-centered; relational and depth psychology; psychoanalytic; Langian (R.D. Laing); and positive psychology.
Along with maintaining a private practice for over ten years, I am co-author of the book Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, (2012). In the past, I completed a practicum as a mental health clinician with the Ministry of Children and Family Development in the eating disorders program. In addition, I have created online transformative learning programs, and facilitated non-sectarian Buddhist inspired mindfulness-based groups and retreats.
I currently serve as adjunct faculty at Saybrook University in San Francisco, California within the School of Clinical Psychology, where I co-developed and was co-Director of The Complex Trauma and Healing Processes Certificate Program. In addition, I have taught the course on The life and Contributions of Alan Watts and served on the Alan Watts Scholarship Fund committee.
