Janice Burton

LMSW

About me

I am a Licensed Master of Social Work in the State of Michigan with 15 years of experience as a therapist and life coach. I have experience working with variety of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship and career issues. My specialty has been in the area of anxiety including performance based anxiety, OCD, and PTSD. I am an EMDR trained therapist. This has allowed me to help clients overcome past physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

My counseling style is collaborative. I believe my clients are the "experts" on themselves and that allows them the freedom to be honest with me. Together we create a vision of the changes and goals for their lives. I am a practical results oriented therapist that works hard for my client's success.

It is the brave ones would reach out for help. I applaud you for seeking help and wanting to make a difference in your life. Together we will work towards that vision. I look forward to hearing from you.

Jan is helpful

Written on Nov 16, 2022 after therapy with Janice for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Jan is an experienced, professional, and caring therapist. Each conversation we have ends up being an important one, even when I don’t know where to start.

Written on Nov 02, 2022 after therapy with Janice for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Janice is great! First off, I always enjoyed our conversations, Janice is very friendly and encouraging. I needed someone to listen to me and help me recognize what was true and what wasn't, and she definitely helped greatly in both areas. I highly recommend Janice and will request her again in the future should I ever need some help or someone to talk to!

Great listener

Written on Jul 28, 2022 after therapy with Janice for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

I really like Janice, she is very easy to open up to and just talk with. I originally asked for a counselor who has lost a child so they could relate better with me, Janice has not but I sure am glad I continued with her. She is really helping me work through my head.

Janice is kind and knowledgeable and engaged. She has never said anything that made me question her expertise or professionalism. She does all this while seeming very down to earth and treating me like a normal person. Great therapist!

Written on Jun 02, 2022 after therapy with Janice for 1 year and 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, sleeping disorders, and adhd

Janice has been there for me and helped me to see things in my life that I have never realized on my own.
Counselling in the past for me was always anxiety ridden and I most often came away feeling worse. I never would have imagined that I would look forward to a counseling session, but with Janice I always do. I hope that the strengths and skills that I have gained will be enough for me to face life's challenges on my own. I know that that is the purpose of counseling but, I will actually miss my sessions. Jan has been a blessing to me and my family.
Thank you,

Janice is the best therapist I’ve ever bumped into. She’s patient, she really listens and she’s always encouraging. I’m grateful for all the wisdom she’s shared with me.

Written on Jan 19, 2022 after therapy with Janice for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Jan is an amazing therapist. She is kind, patient, compassionate, intuitive, and extremely knowledgeable and experienced with her expertise. Her style of therapy is nurturing yet results oriented. She genuinely cares for your wellbeing and healing. Jan goes out of her way to connect and help address every concern. I have 30+ years of undealt with grief to work through. This is not an easy task. We chisel away a bit every session and 5 months later, I can see tremendous results. This is hard work and takes courage to push through the emotions. Jan has become my mental fitness coach through this process. I love her. She is such a gem!

Written on Dec 01, 2021 after therapy with Janice for 1 month on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, and trauma and abuse

Janice has helped me to heal and evolve so much in such a short time span. I had never heard of EMDR therapy until I met with Janice. It really works!!!! I have been set free from early childhood trauma that had crippled me and held me hostage throughout life. Janice is professional and very well trained. Combining her skills with her authenticity, positive attitude, and caring approach made my healing experience an amazing journey!

Written on Oct 28, 2021 after therapy with Janice for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Janice is good listener, thoughtful in her responses, but more importantly I appreciate her “client-led” approach that focuses on helping you come to your own conclusions.

Ms. Burton is a good listener and makes sure there are key areas which we discuss and she directs the dialogue back to those topics well, while allowing for free thoughts and congenial conversation. I appreciate her suggestion for a method of thought processing one can practice, to identify and move past moments of anxiety or indecision. I love having the remote online video sessions.

In just a few weeks that I have used Betterhelp and spoken with Janice, I feel as though she has helped me think about things in new ways and help me understand where some of my feelings and struggles come from. I think she is a great listener and very goal-driven which is helpful for me. She has given me great tools to work with as well.

Written on Nov 14, 2020 after therapy with Janice for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career difficulties

In just four sessions, I've seen dramatic progress in my own life and well-being since meeting Janice. She provides such a safe space to talk and her experience on every matter that I'm dealing with is very evident. She has been exceptionally helpful.

Written on Oct 14, 2020 after therapy with Janice for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

When I first started with Jan, I was closed off and apprehensive. I had never been in therapy before and I had many preconceived notions on how therapy was supposed to go. Jan, with her very sweet and caring nature, immediately put me at ease and allowed me to open up on my own time and come to terms with my past trauma. Her use of EMDR therapy with me vastly changed how I viewed and perceived my past. It allowed me to take a step back and see it from a different perspective without being influenced by my strong emotional connection to the event. I am a huge advocate for Jan. Her gentle, sweet caring nature while being straight to the point (when appropriate) has greatly helped me and I know that she truly cares about each one of her clients. You won't find a more loving and caring therapist than Jan!

Written on Aug 14, 2020 after therapy with Janice for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, eating disorders, self esteem, and career difficulties

Janice and her in-depth knowledge and experience have been such a wonderful resource for me. She is very thoughtful and uses different techniques to try and help understand the root of what is challenging in my life. She is a true healer at heart and wants to see her clients find peace and growth. I would recommend Janice's services to all of my friends and family. Thank you Janice and Better Help!

Written on Jul 21, 2020 after therapy with Janice for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, grief, and self esteem

Jan was wonderful and helped me through issues with my mom. She was constructive and gave practical ideas on how to express my feelings and set healthy boundaries with my mom. She helped me see that I can't change my mom and that her actions are not my fault. She was helpful in letting go of my desire to fix the situation and be in control of it. Very helpful and great listener!
