Hello, my name is Janeen! I have a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling and am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Connecticut, a National Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Life and Health and Wellness Coach. I have 10 years of experience working with adults and adolescents who have experienced trauma and crisis, life changes and relationship issues. I provide a safe and trusting environment for my clients to explore distressing emotions and life’s challenges. You deserve to live a meaningful, joyful and fulfilling life and I believe you have the strengths to achieve this. My role is to be your partner in this journey.
My approach is client centered, trauma informed, solution focused, and cognitive behavioral. I am a good listener and am very curious about each of my clients own individual stories. I am a facilitator, helping my clients discover who they are, what they want out of life, and develop skills to cope and conquer their challenges. I help my clients feel in control of their life and feel hopeful.
Because every client is unique I use a variety of counseling interventions. I help clients discover what thoughts and limiting beliefs may be holding them back (cognitive behavioral techniques) and help my clients cope with challenges (DBT). I use a trauma informed approach to provide a safe place for my clients to explore emotions and am EMDR trained by the EMDR Institute. I use narrative therapy to help clients write their story and use solution focused approaches to help clients set goals to gain control and move forward in their lives.
I look forward to working with you!
