About me

My name is Janet Webb, and I have been teaching and counseling people my entire adult life. My original focus was education; and I worked as a teacher in public, private, and higher education for almost 20 years. Throughout it all, I have been the “listening ear” when others talked about their concerns, so becoming a counselor was just the right path to follow. My 30+ years of counseling experience in Missouri includes work in a community agency, corrections, private practice, public speaking, and insurance.
You are the expert on you, so our work together starts with you helping me understand your concerns and what you want to achieve. Using a variety of techniques including Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Trauma Reduction, and others we will work together to help you toward your goals. Everyone is different, so we will figure out together what helps you best. We may laugh some and cry some. We will question and explore. But you will always be respected and heard. You may even tell me I have missed the point! Then we back up and try another way to the path that works for you.
My specialties are stress, burn-out, life transitions, anxiety, depression, LGBT concerns including those of family members, chronic illness and pain, trauma recovery, and additions. In over 30 years of experience, I helped adolescents and adults from a variety of backgrounds and cultures along life’s journey. They have learned. I have probably learned more from them. Let’s work together to continue learning how you can reach for the amazing life you deserve.

Written on Feb 05, 2024 after therapy with Janet for 3 months

Because of a significant amount of childhood trauma, I have been stuck in fight or flight mode for about 17 years. Janet has helped me and given me the tools I needed to bring myself out of it, to start respecting and protecting myself, and to establish reasonable boundaries with people in my life. I have grown so much, gained more confidence, and have been working towards closing that chapter of my life and begin to look forward without constantly reminding myself of the past. I can't thank Janet enough for her time and patience with me in my journey, and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for help, or is looking to begin the healing process.

Janet is very kind and has helped me a lot in my struggles with gender identity. She’s quick to respond to questions and our phone sessions are always productive and I come out feeling accomplished and with a list of things to do!
