About Me

Jeanne Whalen, MSAP

I’m Jeanne and I’ve been living with chronic pain for more than 14 years. Luckily, some years have been better than others and it was not until the last few that my flareups have become the most intense. Over the years I’ve undergone back surgery, a neck fusion and wrist surgery to fix structural abnormalities I’ve faced; however, I still struggle with intense daily pain. The condition best describing what is wrong with me is peripheral neuropathy. The nerves of my peripheral nervous system send information from my brain to the spinal cord just like everyone else, but in my case, my nerves aren’t working properly and there are a lot of signals firing which indicate pain that shouldn’t. In short, each day is a struggle to recharge the draining impact chronic pain has on my life.

 

I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Tennessee, a Master’s in Applied Psychology from Sacred Heart University, and a certificate of Strategic Intervention from Robbins-Madanes Training. My life passion is working with others to help them overcome whatever challenges they face. Since I can relate first hand and have a research background in chronic pain, I tend to gravitate towards clients who need help becoming “unstuck” after being paralyzed with fear over awful conditions. I utilize a wide range of skills to assist those who desire a better quality of life, self-sufficiency and happiness. You can find a list of my services (outside of the resources provided on this website) here.

 

The goal of this site is to help you find ways to live and work that “plug you in” and bring positive energy to your spirit and those around you. By managing your pain more effectively I know it’s possible for you to live your passion with a sense of compassion for others. Whatever your passion and purpose is, my intention is to help you find it and live it, in spite of the pain you’re facing!

 

Sending you healing vibes!
