Genis Timmerman is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and has been working as a therapist since graduating with her Master’s degree in 2012. Genis has extensive experience working in community treatment programs, crisis stabilization and residential programs, family reunification programs, out-patient programs, and probation and rehabilitation programs.
Genis is passionate about helping others and considers herself a humanitarian. Genis honorably served active duty in the United States Military for 11 years and became a therapist after serving in combat in Iraq. Genis knew she could have a greater impact in helping others by becoming a therapist so she transitioned to a career in psychology.
In therapy, Genis offers a warm, honest partnership for anyone who is struggling emotionally. It takes a lot of strength to accurately assess your current situation, to confront certain truths, and to commit to making needed changes in your life. If you are ready to start making those changes, you may be wondering what to expect in the therapeutic process. In a supportive alliance with you, and after you identify your goals, together a strategy is mapped out to address your concerns, work to increase your self-awareness, and focus on developing greater personal insight and behavioral change. Genis brings clarity, caring, curiosity, and a gentle kind of directness. Genis will encourage you, at your own pace, to push beyond your comfort level as you strive for more clarity and independence, search for solutions to challenges, and develop happier, healthier relationships with yourself and others. Genis works with families, couples, and individuals.
Genis Timmerman, LMFT, is a graduate of Argosy University with a M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy. Genis also earned a post master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University. Genis is currently enrolled in a PhD psychology program in Higher Consciousness Studies
