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.

Jan is always informative and helps me work out some difficult answers for my issues. I am glad I have her support in my self improvement journey.
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.
Jan is kind and no-nonsense. She is a great communicator and listener. She has excellent insight to offer.
She is an amazing counselor!
She’s actually very good at what she does
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.
Jan is very nice, very real and professional. She is good at listening, very supportive and provides actionable suggestions. I’m really glad to have Jan helping me go through this hard period and prep me with what I need to face the future.
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!
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.
