Jeannette’s unique gift lies in her ability to utilize her therapeutic training, leveraging it to create transformative opportunities for individuals, youth, and families within the community.

What are Participatory Photography Projects?

Jeannette, who is also a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW), does participatory photography projects using a form of the internationally recognized methodology called “Photovoice”. This methodology enables individuals, groups and communities to represent themselves, their perspectives and creates tools for advocacy and communication. Jeannette mainly works youth, adults and families in the greater Salem community at her private practice,  local community based programs and schools.
