Janeka Collins

(LCSW)

About Me

I have over 9 years of experience in psychotherapy. I have experience in clinical therapy, drug and alcohol prevention, medical and hospice services, child welfare, 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, ADHD, ODD, and behavioral disturbances. I also have experience in working with clients who have experienced trauma (sexual, emotional, and physical abuse).

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 was a great therapist and truly cares about her patients. She felt like a second mom to me and I’ll have her on my mind as I study psychology in college. She helped me through so much such as my anxiety and stress from work and school. She taught me how to balance everything and even helped me with weight loss tips. Janeka is definitely the therapist for you, she checks up on you almost daily and leaves the session with you feeling better!

Janeka is an amazing therapist. She shoots straight and has a no-nonsense approach. She is also very gentle with me and gives me a lot of space to come to therapy on my own terms. She has a relaxed approach that feels more like talking to a friend who seriously knows her business, rather than a therapist with lots of clients to serve. Janeka’s style reminds me of why I wanted to come to therapy in the first place, true unbiased, careful listening, in a space that pushes me to think and feel and unpack.

Janeka and I have been working together for about three weeks now. She is always there and quick to respond. I can always rely on her advice in any situation I might be in. She listens to everything you have to say and helps you find different coping mechanisms that work for YOU. That's so important and I can't emphasize on that enough. I love working with her and I appreciate her professionalism. I highly, highly recommend her.

Janeka is a very caring, warm and friendly person. She is very resourceful and spends a lot of time helping me work through my problems in a positive way. After only 2 weeks of working with Janeka, I already feel much better and have more practical strategies to deal with my issues day-to-day. I would thoroughly recommend Janeka as a therapist!
