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 wonderful. She is so knowledgeable, yet empathetic. She has helped me become stronger emotionally and mental healthy. It has been a long road, but she has been there to walk me through some tough times. I appreciate her so much.

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.

I am very pleased with my match with Jan. She is knowledgeable and easy to talk to and understands where I am. She always makes sure to ask me during each session where I'd like to focus so I'm getting the most from our time together.

Written by B.R. on Oct 14, 2020 after counseling 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!

Janice is very helpful in guiding my thoughts into a more positive way. She listens to me ramble and hopefully makes sense of it all.

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 by B.A. on Jul 21, 2020 after counseling 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!

I really appreciate the thought, time and care Janice is giving me. The fact that I was able to send her messages even before our first session was awesome. She immediately gave me a the reassurance that I could overcome my pronlems and I love that she is so outcome based. She catches me when I need to vent or go an a rant and shows me how to take a more productive approach.
