Janai Harris


About Me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in both California and Illinois with over five years of experience working as a therapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, stress management, life skill development, effective communication skills and conflict resolution, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, ADD/ADHD, and various additional areas. I have worked with clients throughout all life stages: from children in school settings, adolescents at colleges and universities, and adults in both the inpatient medical setting and in private practice, as well as correctional facilities. I also help individuals who have experienced traumatic life events.

My counseling style is warm and interactive and rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-focused therapy. I employ a humanistic, holistic, person-centered, strengths-based, culturally competent approach. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and prioritize fostering a healthy therapeutic relationship. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I believe in recognizing and encouraging each client's potential for personal growth and change.. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!
