Janet Lawrence

(LPC, LCDC)

About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor and I am also a licensed chemical dependency counselor. I started in the field working with clients who are chemically dependent and did this for several years. I am currently working for a mental health authority completing assessments and giving preliminary diagnoses to clients with mental health disorders who are seeking treatment. I have been doing this for about four years now. I have worked with clients with severe trauma, depression, anxiety, the list is endless. I have also helped clients in crises.
I like to utilize cognitive behavioral therapy a lot in counseling. Some other modalities that I like to use are solution-focused brief therapy and Gestalt therapy. Counseling is dependent upon the individual, though, and it is important to assess the person's needs according to the problems that are presented.
I have primarily worked with adults throughout my time in counseling and have learned that is important to be very genuine with people. I would describe my counseling style as genuine but gentle. Counseling does require work in order to achieve the desired change. I am willing to help with that and I look forward to hearing from you.

Janet is the best therapist and counselor in the world! I would recommend anyone to go to Janet. She is a wonderful listener and she consistently gives the best advice. She really cares about the people she is counseling. I give all the credit of my life becoming so much better and healthier to Janet! I am so thankful I got paired with such a wonderful, kind, and intelligent therapist.

Janet does an incredible job of assisting me in the maintenance and progression of my therapy goals. I feel like I gain a newfound perspective and second-wind each time I leave the session.

Written by D.O. on Aug 15, 2020 after counseling with Janet for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, and intimacy-related issues

Janet's ability to let me open myself up is what keeps me coming back. By listening first she is reactive towards pinpointing my uncertainties and proactive in ensuring I don't make decisions I will regret. I believe I have a lot of growth to make and am in capable hands.
