“Some people survive and talk about it. Some people survive and go silent. Some people survive and create. Everyone deals with imaginable pain or life hurdles in their own way, and everyone is entitled to that, without judgement…” Jannia’s ideal clients are individuals seeking to reach clarity or change. She believes successful therapy relies on the client’s readiness. Willingness and vulnerability are necessary for any change. Ideal clients will embrace vulnerability to explore areas that are causing disrupt in daily functioning and display willingness to implement change to the best of their abilities.

It is important to have a safe space to express your true feelings and process your experiences in life. Therapy is a perfect space to do that without judgment and at your own pace. There are many different approaches to therapy for each client, and one size does not fit all. I like to use a client-centered approach as I believe in giving the client the agency to feel in control of their therapeutic experience. I use various approaches such as CBT and mindfulness, to create an environment and experience that is individualized and beneficial to the client’s goals and expectations.

Life happens to all of us and we usually deal with it, but sometimes things get complicated and we cannot “do it alone” - we need someone to walk with us. So whether you are a parent trying to manage a child’s behavior or support your child in school; an individual seeking personal development or dealing with mental illness; or a family going through transition, I will be that someone. I will be there to give you hope that change is possible and that you have what it takes to make that change happen.

December Opening. Please email for grief therapy consultation. Insurance for payment not accepted, and "new client" fee will be $175/50-minute session beginning January 1, 2023. “There is a tendency to underestimate how intensely distressing and disabling loss usually is and for how long the distress, and often the disablement, commonly lasts…There is a tendency to suppose that a normal healthy person can and should get over a bereavement not only fairly rapidly but also completely. But, loss of a loved person is one of the most intensely painful experiences any human being can suffer.” – John Bowlby, Loss, Sadness, and Depression

At times we can all feel overwhelmed, and especially right now. Maybe you’re starting to feel a little disconnected from the people around you. Or maybe you just aren’t feeling like your old self. You feel it’s time for a change, but don’t know where to start. Dealing with stress, on top of everything else, can leave anyone feeling overwhelmed, invisible, and out of control. Let’s work together using the existing tools within yourself to help you start feeling whole again.
