I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the Tampa Bay area of Florida (and recently Massachusetts!). I have been working in the mental health field for over 9 years in community mental health treating co-occurring disorders in teens and adults. I have had the opportunity to partner in therapy with many individuals in their journeys to achieve their goals. I am experienced in helping individuals overcome challenges related to stress, anxiety and adjustment-related conditions, depression, self-esteem, communication, school and work-related challenges, and recovery. Other populations/areas of experience (and passion) are: working with teens/young adults transitioning into "adulting", supporting individuals who self-identify as "socially awkward" and not feeling as though they fit in, and supporting women with common life challenges/transitions.
My therapeutic approaches are strengths-based, client-centered, and I utilize cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, and solution-focused therapy. My approach is always mindful of the needs of my clients to assist them in getting the best outcomes for their goals. In my work with clients, I am a true believer of “meeting people where they are”. I know it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help, so with that I am humbled each time that I get to work with someone. I offer a supportive presence to work through tough situations, and I believe that empathy is a good starting place in the therapeutic relationship.
I look forward to partnering with you!

She has been amazing throughout my transition
Jannedra has been such a joy to work with. She was so encouraging and helpful. She knew exactly how to cater to my individual needs and has inspired me to be the best version of myself in several aspects of my life.
Jannedra is amazing! I only had 2 sessions with her and life just got in the way of me continuing but I still use the tools she provided me with. She gave me a new outlook on what therapy really is. I would highly recommend her!
Jannedra has been incredible as a therapist. At first I was a little worried if a BetterHelp therapist could be for me, especially with one living so far from me, but she is absolutely a gem. She is flexible to schedule times that work for me, and is extremely thoughtful and caring. Jannedra goes above and beyond to make you feel listened to and cared for. She remembers everything from previous sessions and actively plans the next sessions to best help me reach my goals. Can't recommend her enough!!
Jannedra’ Ebanks is awesome. She takes time to listen to what you have to say and makes you feel like your goals are definitely attainable. 10/10 recommend.
Jannedra’ is fantastic! She is an excellent active listener and really makes the experience lighthearted yet very informative and leaves you with something to think about after every session.
She is an absolute sweetheart and it is evident that she practices active listening.
I feel comfortable with speaking to her. She is very comforting
She is very compassionate and sweet. She will take the time to understand your situation. She is patient and knowledgeable. She has pointed out things that I didn’t notice or see.
She’s great and as we go further I believe she can help me resolve my issues
