Dr. Jean Ayers
Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Physician Assistant
"My work as a therapist is a calling - a sacred privilege, even - to accompany others on their sometimes difficult and sometimes joyous journey toward growth, awareness, acceptance, and self compassion."
Dr. Ayers has been a licensed psychologist for three decades.
She takes an approach that considers and appreciates the complex mind/body/spirit interactions that influence our health and wellness.
She trained in medicine as a PA at GWU, with a focus on women's health.
In addition to her required OB/GYN rotation, she also provided services at an alternative medicine center and a freestanding birthing center.
Dr. Ayers brings knowledge and perspective from teaching courses in holistic wellness, human sexuality, and mindfulness. She has additional training and experience in cognitive therapy, Jungian analysis, and mindfulness-based approaches to psychological wellness.
"All of these tools excite me, as does the process of matching and tailoring approaches to the individual and unique needs of my clients!"
As a native Baltimorean, Dr. Ayers is excited to see the city recreate itself over her lifetime. She now lives on Maryland's beautiful Eastern Shore, having recently relocated for an academic appointment.
"Nature inspires me - both in terms of the natural world around us, and the natural capabilities, desires, and developmental transitions within us."
Dr. Ayers now is thrilled to have ample opportunity to observe the natural world - especially the majesty of the Chesapeake Bay, from her sailboat, "Serendipity".
She loves the opportunity to care for the natural world through her volunteer work in animal welfare and wildlife rehabilitation.
Dr. Ayers has two amazing grown children, whose artistry, creativity, and passion inspires her daily.
