About

by Jean Landphair, LMFT

I received my B.A. degree in Psychology and Interpersonal Communications from Ottawa University, a small Christian college in Kansas.  After having worked in human resources management and sales, I became a homemaker and raised a family with my husband of many years.

After my kids were grown and gone, I began to pursue a calling I had sensed since my teen years – becoming a counselor.  I completed a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy degree at Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville.  I have also completed the necessary training to use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT).  This is a model that looks not only at the negative behaviors that are obstacles for close relationships, but also at the deep emotional wounds that are at the root of the negative behaviors.  EFT has been highly researched and found to be effective in a large majority of cases.

I am fully licensed by the State of Tennessee to perform Marriage and Family Therapy.

I am an involved member of Real Life Community Church in Murfreesboro, organizing periodic events for newcomers as well as serving in other areas.  I am past President of the Rutherford County Psychotherapy Association and also hold memberships in the Nashville Area Association of Christian Counselors and the International Centre for Excellence for Emotionally Focused Therapy.

I have had columns printed in the Daily News Journal and the Murfreesboro Post.  You can see them attached to this website.

When not at work, I can usually be found tending my home and garden, reading, bicycling, or enjoying quality time with my friends and family.
