About Me

My name is Jan Abbott. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a certified professional counselor supervisor (CPCS) in the state of Georgia. I have been doing mental health therapy for over 13 years in the greater Atlanta area. I have been the clinical director at several mental health clinics for in house and community therapy agencies. I have also spearheaded and created whole health programs for medical doctors to ensure my clients are able to heal the mind, body, and spirit. For the last 6 years, I have been in private practice where I have worked with a plethora of clients from all walks of life, with great success. My ability to help clients, especially those who are resistant or unaware of what changes are needed in their lives has been a great success as well. I have a wealth of experience working with individuals, groups, couples, and families within a therapeutic framework, using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy (SFT), and many other modalities have aided in that success. I have a history of working in interdisciplinary teams, including doctors, lawyers, the courts, DFCS community case managers, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and other community partners to meet the needs of a very diverse clientele. I have the uncanny ability to use an array of innovative plans, therapy styles, and resources to develop ideal solutions for many therapeutic, community, and systematic problems in order to empower my client base.

She is very attentive and understanding

Written by K.A. on Apr 14, 2022 after therapy with Jan for 3 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and coping with life changes

I really like Jan. We laugh, we share and she listens and has offered some really valuable advice, sometimes through personal experience and other time through her professional experience and what she has dealt with in her career. I look forward to our chats every week.

Dear Jan, thank you for your support and guidance. If I look back at a year ago, I don’t recognise myself. You helped me rediscover who I am and better myself. I am working towards improving myself and so glad you are alongside with me in this journey. I got this, thanking you!

Jan is wonderful. She holds empathetic non-judgmental space while working with me to meet any self limiting patterns with solutions. I would recommend her to anyone. She is relatable, kind, and effective.

Written by W.I. on Jan 09, 2022 after therapy with Jan for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Our sessions are very helpful and I’ll be more than happy if they can continue. However, living overseas in a vastly different time zone makes finding a convenient time to meet very, very difficult.

Written by E.M. on Dec 02, 2021 after therapy with Jan for 4 weeks on issues concerning self esteem, relationship issues, family conflicts, and trauma and abuse

I would highly recommend Jan to anyone who is trying to better themselves, trying to work through past traumas and notice and overcome negative automatic thoughts we tell ourselves. I feel like Jan is leading me on a path of self discovery is the most kind, caring and compassionate way. I would recommend her to anyone!

I love her, she's very supportive and kind, she hears your thoughts and your pain she simply understands what you're going through. I strongly recommend her.

Written by J.E. on Sep 21, 2021 after therapy with Jan for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Jan supports me without judgement while keeping me honest. She's not afraid to open up about her own experiences dealing with mental health issues, and makes it so much easier to really dig into all of the facets of my psyche that I've been terrified to admit to even some of my closest friends. She also sets you up with trustworthy resources to refer to on YouTube and other sites. This is great for those mental health internet rabbitholes because now I'm certain of the value of the info I'm getting. 10/10 person and therapist

I love how personable and supportive Jan is, her expertise and tools that she uses have been very useful in my healing journey. I always look forward to our sessions, which is very important when tackling tough issues.

I've not been working with Jan long, and we have some way to go to understand and get to know each other to best help me, but I've enjoyed working with her so far. She has new ideas to help me manage anxiety and stress, and has helped outline a plan of care that makes me feel like getting better is possible.

Written by J.E. on Jun 30, 2021 after therapy with Jan for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

After working with this fine lady for 1 month and a half I have learned things about how to live and get by a little more. She’s listened to me and ever session we tackle what’s going on and each new day is going to get cooler and I can finally live with the day. Best help ever from someone.

Written by S.A. on Jun 01, 2021 after therapy with Jan for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I really appreciate Jan‘s understanding,acceptance and support. I‘ve had two video calls with her and I already feel much better as she showed me ways how to cope with my overthinking and anxiety. I love her authenticity and her personal stories. Instead of crying,I‘m laughing during the sessions and I‘m having fun talking about my serious problems. I highly recommend her to everyone who struggles with anxiety and overthinking! Thanks Jan!

Jan is fabulous. I feel lucky to have conversations with someone who gets where I'm coming from and can help relate & reflect on things. She's the best counsellor I've had!

Written by P.H. on May 14, 2021 after therapy with Jan for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Jan is one of the smartest people I have ever met. She knows how to connect with you, she sees where you've come from and sees where you're heading. Jan can verbalise things that I was never aware of, and she does so in such a calm, friendly manner that I feel uplifted with every session we have together.

Work with me!
