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.

The best of the best. She is so kind and understanding and has really helped me turn my life around. She is a great listener and gives great advice and solutions that you may not even think of.
I am autistic and she treats me with respect and talks to me like an adult. We are able to have intelligent conversations together.
She is also great to talk to about anything else like how your day is going, what you’ve been up to, etc.
One of the nicest people you can meet—very lucky to have her as a therapist.

I couldn't have asked for a more supportive and understanding therapist! BetterHelp did an amazing job matching us together! She's so down to earth and cuts through the issue. She has helped me immensely, and I couldn't be more thankful.
