Jeannie Kyrezis Life Coach & Licensed Clinical Psychologist - Psychotherapist.
My education in psychology & psychotherapy
My name is Jeannie Kyrezis and I obtained a B.A. in Social and Counseling Psychology a unique program applying theory to practice. At the time I was working in various drug rehabilitation settings with families, children and addicted individuals. I got the chance to work with addicts and their babies born addicted and their assessment as to their development. I worked at a crisis counseling hotline and crisis counseling center. Cases included depression, anxiety, rape victims, assault victims and battered women as well as robbery victims.
Since I was young I had a gift of feeling empathy and wanting to help and assist people. As a college student I had an inadapt ability in understanding psychology and understanding people and their behavior. I felt and feel good and fulfilled by listening to people's problems and by assisting them to finding happiness and solutions.
My M.A. from Long Island University of New York was in Clinical Psychology where I was focused more on individual therapy as well as group therapy, in community centers and senior citizen centers with children, adolescents, adults and senior citizens. I worked with troubled youth and ran peer groups as well as interactive groups, group building and self esteem groups.
My Psychotherapy Practice
I am a Greek American (bi-lingual) who upon graduating moved to Greece and set up my private practice as well as taught in private colleges. I taught, trained, and supervised psychology students in and out of academic settings. I ran the department of psychology underseeing the staff and all students’ needs for two years, while teaching. I worked as a advisor and psychologist in preschools where I assessed, advised, counseled and treated behavior in children. I ran special self-esteem programs and advised staff on various issues. I worked in the international school as a school psychologist. There I tested, psychologically assessed, advised and treated students with personal, behavioral, learning disabilities, learning strategies and self esteem issues.
I believe that with academic and professional experience acquired both in Greece and in the United States, I bring a broader perspective and expertise to therapy in multi-cultural settings. My background enables me to serve a diverse clientele effectively and to focus on positive results with every client. My own multicultural upbringing has enabled me to understand and to relate to clients empathically.
How I apply psychotherapy
I am licensed as a clinical psychologist who provides assessment, diagnosis, and therapy for children, adults, seniors, families and couples. My services include short and long-term psychotherapy. I conduct, marriage counselling, and testing. I also help children and adolescents. I administer full psychological and educational evaluations to students with learning issues. I have therapeutic successes in a number of situations, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, children and adolescent issues, as well as in self-esteem issues. I have a great interest in helping clients through relationship challenges and life transitions. I conduct sessions in English, and Greek. I also hold seminars to share my knowledge about psychology. I teach parenting school, and run groups in my private practice.
I strive to understand each individual's issues and needs. I try to uncover patterns of reasoning thus obtain a comprehensive understanding of the person and their functioning. Through caring, compassion and a non-judgmental stance, I empower, leading to an enhancement of self-esteem. I come to see how people can better understand themselves and their relationships, and am able to help you make improved choices, to live meaningful lives. I work with my clients to discover and use their strengths, and talents. I believe that this approach gives my clients the chance to finally establish and pursue what they really want in their life.

My psychological approach
Happiness comes when you get to know your self. I see therapy as a partnership which is based on trust and a search to uncover events from the past that have shaped your life in order to understand your present. As we make a connection from the past and present, you will gain insight and help you manage your life in the present in new and different ways. My goal is for you to feel supported, understood, respected and encouraged in order to make changes in your life. Together, we will take a journey that will allow you to move forward.
I seek to help you in creating a balance in your life by creating a safe, caring space to explore your feelings and overcome your issues. I have been providing psychotherapeutic services to individuals, couples and families for over 20 years. I have experience dealing with various issues including depression, anxiety, low self esteem, sexual abuse, addictions, crisis counselling, life management, gender and relationship issues.
