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.

Janice is amazing! I'm so thankful I found her when I did. She is professional and helps pinpoint why you're feeling something and where it stems from. She provides great insight but allows you to help yourself. I would recommend her to anyone.

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 by M.A. 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 by B.R. 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!

Janice and her in-depth knowledge and experience have been such a wonderful resource for me.

Written by B.A. 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!
