Who We Are

Jeannette Robert and Ronald Kellestine are the APP principals. We are holistically oriented professionals (nutrition, yoga, meditation, exercise, interaction with nature), we provide services to individuals, couples, families, and groups.

The philosophy of APP is to treat each person as an individual, with their own experiences, motivations, and needs.

About Jeannette

 An accomplished Professional Mental Health provider, I offer my services and expertise in French and English. 

As a Registered Psychotherapist, I practice a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle. 

My therapeutic philosophy is Existential & Client-Centered. Modalities include: Experiential Therapy, Virginia Satir, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Twelve Step Facilitation.

My practice includes Individual, Couples, Family & Group Therapy. 

My philosophy is Existential, meaning that we are free and therefore responsible for our choices, and our actions. We are the authors of our lives, and we design the pathways we follow. My basic premise is that we are not victims of circumstance because, to a large extent, we are what we choose to be. Life is a cycle of transitions and experiences, presenting opportunities and challenges. Often the most important life lessons comes from our suffering. My aim is to assist people to develop their meaning and purpose, by encouraging them to explore options, in order to achieve a more meaningful existence. I have found my meaning by working with life’s challenges. I’m here to walk with you through this process.


Ma philosophie est Existentielle qui veut dire que nous sommes libres et donc que nous sommes responsables pour nos choix et nos actions. Nous sommes les auteurs de notre vie et devons donc suivre le sentier que nous avons créé. Ma prémisse de base dit que nous ne sommes pas des victimes de nos circonstances vu qu’en principe nous sommes ce que nous choisissons d’être. La vie est un cycle de transitions et d’expériences qui présentent de multiples opportunités. Souvent les plus importantes lessons de la vie proviennent de nos épreuves. Mon but est de guider les gens en leur aidant à developer leur raison d’être, et leur destination en les encourageant à explorer différentes options pour en arriver à un mode de vie plus satisfaisant. J’ai trouvé ma raison d’être en faisant face à la vie et à ses nombreux défis. J’aimerais, donc vous guider pour traverser ce processus ensemble.
