Get To Know Your Therapist!

Just as important as it is for the therapist to learn about the patient, the patient should know who their therapist is! 


Rev. Janean Tinsley, MS, LCADC, CCTP


Janean has been a therapist for 12 years. She began in the field of addiction but quickly expanded to other areas including trauma, marriage, anxiety, depression, spiritual, and church-harm. She is also trained in Brainspotting, a revolutionary therapy for rapid and effective change and Sand Tray Therapy. Janean believes that mental health is one-third of the overall wholeness of an individual; the other two being spiritual and physical. With a holistic approach, Janean will work with the patient to develop a healthy healing plan. Janean opened First Step Counseling in 2001 to offer patients a different kind of therapeutic experience. Janean is also an ordained minister and believes in biblical principles. As a Christian counselor, she will use these principles to foster hope and healing. 

Janean is a graduate of Western Kentucky University (BA), Capella University (MA), and Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary. She is married and has a son.
