Janet Mutahangarwa

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

My name is Janet Mutahangarwa and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of North Carolina. I have over 10 years of experience in mental health services and behavioral issues. I treat individuals from diverse backgrounds. I also hold a degree in finance which sometimes comes handy when helping those who are stressed due to financial needs. My approach is treating the whole person because most of the time our problems are the outcome of more than just one thing and when I get to know you as a whole person I am able to address different issues that could be contributing to that one specific problem. We all experience some difficulties in our lives sometimes and we all cope differently. What works for one person who is experiencing a similar situation may not work for another and so I personalize your treatment to fit you. Being in therapy is like being on a journey, and I make sure you are on the driver’s seat and I become your great working GPS, guiding you to your desired destination. We might have to take a detour on the way but together we will get you where you want to be.
Among the treatment modalities I use are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Positive Parenting, Multi-systemic Therapy (MST) and Contingency Management.

As this was my first time trying online therapy, I was very pleased to have Janet as my counselor. I found it very easy and comfortable talking to her, and she paid very close attention and helped me get to the root of my problems. Janet listens very well and gives you a lot of room and space to talk, and is always on hand to provide explanations that you may have not been aware of at all. I would highly recommend Janet.

Janet is very open-minded and remembers all the details you tell her. She’s very neutral with her advice as well, not swinging you in any particular direction but gently guides you to finding it on your own.
