About Me

Hi There!!

My name is Janie Waddell and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master's degree in Counseling and a bachelor's degree in Psychology. In my Master's program and under supervision, I have 8 years of experience with counseling children, adolescents, adults, groups, and families. As a Qualified Professional and Mental Health Therapist, I have provided counseling to a diverse population of individuals with mental health illnesses and substance abuse issues. I have worked with kids of all ages focusing on self esteem, family conflict, ADD, ODD, anger management, peer relationships, and many more. I have worked with adults dealing with depression, anxiety, anger management, bipolar disorder, parenting, family conflict, and relationship issues.

Counseling provides the opportunity for growth and self-discovery in the context of a safe, supportive, and therapeutic environment. I believe that my own personal life experiences have helped me to be a more empathetic and compassionate counselor. I use Cognitive Behavioral strategies in my therapeutic practice as well as Solutions Focused therapy, Gestalt therapy techniques, and expressive art therapy. I will work with you to determine the appropriate treatment for your individual needs.

I am very passionate about helping others and I am unique in the way I can easily establish rapport with, relate to, and connect with my clients. I believe that a safe, non-judgmental, and supportive environment with mutual respect is key to bringing about the change clients are seeking in their lives and relationships. I want to help you be successful and happy!! Congratulations for taking the first step toward making change and getting help. I would love to assist you in your journey while providing you support and encouragement along the way!!

I look forward to working with you!!

Janie has been amazing. She truly cares about what I have to say and how I’m feeling. I can confidently confide in her and after each session I come away feeling like a weight has been lifted. Cant thank her enough.

Janie has been listening to my concerns and the things that are affecting me and my relationship. We have just started working together but she has given me a lot of good things to think about, recommended some reading, and is going to send me some prompts to think of ways to phrase my questions and thoughts to my wife in ways that do not make her fell that I am attacking her or that she needs to be defensive. I look forward to continuing to work with Janie to hopefully save my marriage.

I have struggled for many many years to find a counselor that I could stick with. I always found excuses why I didn’t like them. After my first phone session with Janie, it was different. I was happy, relaxed, and excited to proceed with my day. She made me feel confident and I felt like she really cared and was willing to help me reach my goals I had for therapy! I can’t wait to meet with her again and continue my path to making a better me! Thanks Janie! You filled those big shoes!!!

Janie is very sensitive and carrying. She also addresses my issues, always offers great options to reflect on them and to find the right answers through deep reflection and self-work. I'm very happy to have Janie as my counsellor.

Janie is empathetic and non-judgemental. She intelligently supplies potential solutions and materials from her knowledge base without being prescriptive, shining a light as it where, for you to see by. I’m climbing a mountain right now and it’s good to have Janie as my guide.

Janie speaks very kindly, with a lot of empathy and understanding. She provides a safe platform where you do not feel judged for the things that you share with her, even if you feel that they are silly. She is organised and systematic, and is willing to tackle your problems effectively.

Friendly and helpful support which I've needed at this time.
Janie has really understood the situation I've been in, never judging, but there to offer guidance and advice to help me to be my best.
Although I've not reached my goal yet, the ease of accessibility has been extremely advantageous for my current situation.
