Janet is the most amazing therapist I could ask for. She makes you open up so easily and you feel like you’re talking to your best friend. She’s also funny and never fails to put you in a good mood.

Janet is excellent at what she does and has been super accommodating of my specific needs and goals. She's been open and attentive in every session we've had and is very quick to pick up on how you're feeling and what underlying issues may be present - she's great at matching your own energy. I highly recommend her!

She is currently helping me through some tough times and it’s working. She reads into everything and boils it down to pinpoint what the main cause/issues are. Improvement began with the very first session, I highly recommend her because how she’s helping me is working!
