Working with Janet has changed my life. I have never done therapy before and I took it upon myself to join BetterHelp. I was nervous but the second that I got matched with Janet I knew that everything was going to be okay! Janet is helpful in ALLLL aspects of my life regarding my mental health, career choices, and simply just being someone that I can lean on during hard times. The best decision I could I have ever made was joining BetterHelp and I’m so thankful they matched me with fabulous Janet! She is warm, compassionate, kind, and empathetic. She is truly the best!

I just finished my first 4weeks with Janet. She is a great person and easy to talk to. I feel like I am only just getting started. She’s given me key things to focus on in being overwhelmed with my current life situation. Hoping I can afford to keep going!

I came to Janet 6 months after my first breakup, I feel that I had run into a dead end with my healing and did not know how to move forward without this person in my life even though I knew it was not meant to be. Janet listened, engaged, and challenged me to think about things in a different perspective and really think about my emotions and feelings to get to the root of why I was feeling the way I was. Janet made me feel comfortable to open up on conversations that I was not comfortable talking about which I think is huge. Highly recommend Janet for dealing with relationship trauma and guidance.
