About Me

Hello, I'm Janet Ferrell. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Mental Health Service Provider additionally. I have worked in mental health for over 30 years in a variety of settings. I have worked with individuals with addiction issues, domestic violence, mental health issues, inpatient and outpatient treatment. I have a background of working with adolescents and adults but not small children.

I have experience in many types of therapy but excel in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I enjoy mindfulness and guided imagery techniques. I believe therapy must be individualized to the client and not a one fits all experience. We are all unique and special in our own ways. I strive to create a safe space where the client feels comfortable opening up.

I hope to hear from you so we can start the journey of therapy together. It takes a brave person to pursue change but I believe if that is your goal it can be achieved.

I have spent the last six months working with Janet, and in that time, she was able to help me go from a devastated wreck to finally feeling confident in how to deal with my emotions. I've experienced a lot of trauma in my life, and she has helped me to face those experiences head on and deal with the problems they have created. Janet made a space for me to be my full, authentic self with absolutely no judgement. I have been able to share fears, traumas, and aspects of myself in such a vulnerable way that I would not have been able to without the care that she brings into a session.
Janet has helped me to see myself as someone worthy of love and care, when previously I would never have seen myself that way. I experience symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder, and those symptoms make it very easy to see yourself as a monster, rather than a vulnerable person. Janet was able to help me see so much improvement over the last six months that I will really miss being her client, but I feel prepared to handle the challenges of both my life and my mind in a much more healthy way as a result of her care.
Thank you, Janet, for helping to pull me out of a really dark place and giving me the tools to make it where I am now.

Janet has helped me so much in the little time I've been with her. She gives me tips and "homework " that have made such a difference in my day to day life. I'm very blessed to have been matched with Janet. :)

Janet is very intuitive and empathetic. She is encouraging and has greatly helped guide me back to the space where I need to be. Her work reflects that she is knowledgeable and willing to talk you through any experience. I will carry her suggested coping mechanisms with me forever. Highly recommend!
