Rev. Janean Tinsley, MS, LCADC, CCTP

Owner/Therapist

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.
