I really love my sessions with Janel. It took me awhile to find the right match with counselors, but in my first session I knew she was the one! She’s kind, compassionate, and knows when she just needs to listen or to interject a comment. She’s also really good about building trust. I’ve had other counselors in a traditional setting, but she’s the only one that’s gotten me to really open up about some deeply personal issues to help me process them. She’s the only therapist I’ve ever cried in front of, and that was the single most healing session I’ve had in over 5 years. I’m really grateful for that. She’s also really great about following up when I forget to schedule. Janel is awesome. :)
She is great and very helpful
Janel is a wonderful therapist. She understands my needs and always has good explanations on why I am feeling what I am feeling. Talking to her really helps me to go through things that otherwise too difficult to do on my own.
She was really great and I felt really comfortable
I really appreciate this app and my counselor
Janel is great!! She takes time to listen and gives great realistic perspectives
She is a very talented counselor she's very helpful She gave me to lesson to work on and they've worked great. And I still use them.
Janel was patient with me from the beginning. When I got the opportunity to talk with her via video chat, it was very interesting. And I also discovered we live in the same city, so I thought that was amazing as well! Before I video chatted with her, we were writing each other back and forth. I don't feel judged at all by Janel. She makes me feel comfortable to talk to her about things that I feel like others wouldn't understand about myself. She doesn't lecture me at all, and I feel like she knows that I appreciate her just being there to listen, and help guide me through certain situations. So far I really enjoy having Janel as my counselor!
I've only had two live sessions and a few text sessions with Janel, but I can tell she is good at her craft. She is good at identifying my issues and responding with anecdotes, homework, and advice that helps me navigate the direction I hope to go. I would highly recommend. Plus, she's funny and really nice!
Very kind, puts you at ease and describes everything in a way that helps. She is patient and willing and very helpful.
Glad I reach out with Better help and matched with Janel. She's very compassionate and respectful with how I feel. It always feel invigorating and uplifting every sessions with her. I highly recommends her to anyone who are experiencing difficulties in their life.
