I honestly love Janie she is great and extremely easy to talk to i feel like she knows things the really resonates with me after only saying a few words. Therapy was scary for me at first because the last person I saw made me worse in the end but this experience has changed my look on it completely

Ms. Calhoun is a wonderful therapist, and truly helped me when I was at my lowest. She offered my plenty of helpful solutions dealing with my anxiety. She was kind, patient, a great listener, and a conversationalist, when needed. I highly recommend her, and honestly, plan to come back to her.

She is very unprofessional. I was supposed to have a live session with her at 3pm, and she sent me a message at 2:15pm and said I am not feeling well, could we reschedule for sat/sun… that is very inconsiderate and just completely unprofessional.
