Very Welcoming and friendly

Written on Feb 17, 2024 after therapy with Janie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and adhd

She has a very open ended style and she’s very smart about making you think of the answers you need as opposed to telling you what to do. It’s very nice and feels rewarding. She also isn’t very preachy or snoopy into your past, if you’re worried about that.

May have changed my life! She mentioned ADHD early in our first session. Now I can seek treatment

Janie is down to earth and practical. On day 1 she provided resources for me (book). She listens and she points out inconsistencies in my beliefs and actions. I love her approach so far and I’m excited to see how much she helps me with anxiety.
