I always appreciate how approachable and warm Janelle is--like visiting with a caring friend who is there to support and guide me. She listens to my concerns and validates how I'm feeling. I also appreciate the worksheets (homework) she provides me, too! I always feel better after a session with her--thank you so much, Janelle!

Janelle is so patient and understanding. She takes her time to fully grasp concerns of the patient and doesn’t try to force you into conversations or topics that you aren’t comfortable with. She is very personable and while she is my therapist she creates an environment where it’s like talking to a friend that genuinely cares for your well being. She’s also never been late to a session, which is a plus.

Janelle is very professional and I feel like she really cares and listens to me seriously. It's great having someone to talk to without worrying about making them angry, and she's been able to notice a few behaviors of mine that aren't healthy so that I can address them.

Janelle just eases all of my anxiety when it comes to receiving therapy. I had a Thera prior to her that was very judgmental, Janelle is not like that at all. She really hears me out no judgment or shaming. I feel I can be vulnerable and open up to her.

Janelle has been very attentive. This is my first virtual counseling experience and thus far it has been great!
