I have over 11 years of experience in psychotherapy. I have experience in clinical therapy and supervision. I take pride in helping clients reach their fullest potential and conquer obstacles and hurdles along the way. I have experience in working with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, and much more.
My counseling style is warm and inviting. I believe in the importance of treating each and every person with respect, dignity, sensitivity, and compassion. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels and passing judgment. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, and psychodynamic counseling. My plan is to tailor our conversation and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
The first step in therapy is acknowledging a problem or concern and wanting to become better with professional guidance and support. If you are ready to take that step then I am here to support and empower you every step of the way.
I look forward to working with you!

Janeka has been a life changer for me. It’s been so nice to be able to communicate and have therapy sessions video chat & message whenever I need to. She truly listened to my problems and helped me find solutions, she always had the best advice, and solutions to my problems. She really listened to me and remembered details from our previous conversations which made me feel so good that she genuinely cares about me & my life. I will definitely be recommending BetterHelp & especially Janeka!

Janeka is absolutely incredible. I started working with her at a very turbulent time in my life when I really needed someone who would listen to me and give solid advice, but would also let me figure things out and feel like I was making my own decisions. I never felt pressured to do something I wasn't comfortable with. Janeka is very responsive via messages and regularly sent over articles for me to read. She is warm and friendly over calls and always made me feel important. My life is so much better thanks to her support! Highly recommend.

Janeka has been my therapist for the last 3 months and she has been amazing! Very attentive and friendly, very easy to talk to her about difficult topics. The time during the sessions flies by as the conversation flows. She managed to reassure me that my life is going to improve also sharing some techniques and tools to do it, and I see the results already. I'd definitely recommend Janeka as your future therapist.
