About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 5 years of experience. I obtained my Masters in Social Worker at The University of Illinois at Chicago's Jane Addams College of Social Work. I have worked with individuals with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief, coping with life changing events, and compassion fatigue.

Over the years, I have acquired many skills and experiences to provide supportive care to individuals and their families in coping with external factors, in addition to, acute and chronic medical conditions. I have also assisted individuals with navigating the system and facilitating their transition back into the community after a life changing event.

My style of counseling includes several different types of psychotherapy like psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, cognitive analytical therapy, and humanistic therapy. Our sessions would be customized specifically for you to meet your needs. I believe in helping you be better and do better in a respectful and non-judgmental manner.

I'm here for you whenever you are ready to reach out. I look forward to working with you.

Working with Janki has been an extremely positive experience. She is kind, compassionate, and brings a very open and thoughtful perspective to our discussions. I would highly recommend her services to anyone!

Janki Sevak is not only very helpful and supportive but she is also extremely easy to talk to and open up to.

She's amazing! I have been seeing her for over a year, and I would never go to anyone else. She's very understanding, and great with communication. Best therapist on this website!

Written by A.N. on Jul 17, 2022 after therapy with Janki for 8 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Janki is so sweet and I have developed a really good relationship with her despite being nervous to try therapy. I do have a hard time keeping up with appointments with doctors and such but it's super easy to schedule appointments or even reach out in times of need which is a great experience for someone who usually has a hard time just making it to the office, so much easier and comfortable to be able to do it from home and be in your own space - and I hope the same for the therapist as well. I love that it can be in a casual setting as i feel that i'm speaking with someone who is right beside me in my own environment. I love that Janki does not overshare about her personal life or experiences and can give support that is based outside of her own personal feelings or ideas - she really keeps things neutral and tries to see from my point of view as well as use educational knowledge to give me support or differing sides of things - I really like how we can explore all different ideas and viewpoints that may be different from my, or "our" own; and I love how she can tell me things I don't always want to hear but often find myself thinking "dang she was right...." but it gives me a truly differing perspective on the way I think and I found that implementing many of the things Janki has taught me has brought me a lot more happiness within my own personal life - like being less stressed, being able to deep breathe and handle stressful situations better, but I also found that my interactions with others and my relationships have improved as I have more of the tools for healthy relationships and coping techniques. Honestly, I wish I had been able to implement so many of the things she has taught me earlier in life and find myself thinking all the time, I WISH SHE WAS MY BEST FRIEND! Because the tools she has been able to teach me has been life changing, thanks Janki, you're the best.

Janki is such a wonderful therapist! Supportive yet honest, and always willing to lend an ear and put a positive spin on any situation.

Written by A.L. on May 11, 2022 after therapy with Janki for 1 year on issues concerning coaching

Janki is fantastic. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else because she is just so intelligent, down to earth, and kind. She has brought out the best in me while truly giving me a healthy perspective on so many topics (work, relationships, the happenings of the world). I highly recommend her!

Written by S.A. on Apr 08, 2022 after therapy with Janki for 1 year and 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, self esteem, and career difficulties

Therapy with Janki has been life-changing! She has helped me deal with my anxiety. From the first moment she made me feel comfortable about sharing my thoughts and also not sharing them when I didn't feel like it. She is extremely empathic, and always provides advice and resources that feel tailored to my case. I would totally recommend her!

Janki Sevak is a great therapist. Listens well, but knows how to prompt you when you need it. She has been a great help so far and really has aided me to become better when I wasn’t sure how to. I have a great amount of respect for her, and she excels at her job.

Janki has really helped me see beyond some of my emotional limitations. By dedicating time to a caring, but no nonsense approach to therapy, I have made breakthroughs.

Janki is great! From our first meeting she took the time to listen and understand me. She provides tools and exercises for me to practice which I also find helpful.

She has really made an amazing impact on my life and I am so glad I started therapy with her. I really feel as though she has helped in ways so many haven't been able to before and knowing that I can use BetterHelp to message her anytime I need to has helped my anxiety immensely. I am so incredibly grateful to BetterHelp and Janki Sevak.

Janki has been an amazing therapist to work with. She really helps me see things from different perspectives or makes me think about ways to solve problems that I hadn't thought of before. She's also a great sounding board, listening & all around easy to communicate with. I love working with her!

I wasn't sure if therapy was for me but after my sessions with Janki i feel like she has helped me to process my thoughts and emotions a lot better than I used to and her process makes me feel more comfortable to share

She is a great listener and provides me with tools to help me progress

Written by M.I. on Oct 26, 2021 after therapy with Janki for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and anger management

Janki is a wonderful therapist, she listens to me, she cares about how to proceed, and she's very attentive to my concerns. She encourages good methods to healthy goals. A very good aspect of her is that she takes things at your level and goes with the therapy at your comfort level, she really does everything she can to make sure you are comfortable to talk to her and does not pressure you into anything youre not okay to talk about.

She is the best. Nothing else need to be said

Written by M.E. on Sep 14, 2021 after therapy with Janki for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I have been working with Janki for half a year now and I really look forward to our sessions. I have learned so much about myself and she helps me to truly understand concepts we talk about with symbolism and metaphors. She is careful and understanding of you as a learner/client and meets you at your needs- there is never any judgment or frustrations. She is professional yet extremely personable and you feel as if you are talking to a friend. The fact that she opens the session with open-ended questions allows you to really dig deep at what you want to process with her. If you're anything like me and have so many racing thoughts- she is good at navigating and help you re-focus and bring you back to what we were discussing. Better Help is lucky to have her on the team!

Janki is a breath of fresh air. She is an empathic listener who is really beginning to understand me. I look forward to continuing with her in the future!

Written by K.A. on Dec 08, 2020 after therapy with Janki for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and relationship issues

My opinion is that a counselor should recognize issues and acknowledge them. Ms. Sevak has done a great job in that department.
