I especially enjoy working with women's issues, such as stage of life issues, life transitions, coping with the many roles women often find themselves inhabiting.
I enjoy meeting with people and finding out about their lives, specifically what went into making them the people they are today. Since we are all products of our genetics, the environment in which we grew up, experiences we had or didn't have, it's a pleasure to walk along side someone as they fit those puzzle pieces together and have a greater understanding of who they are. This in turn helps them understand why they feel the way they do or where some of their behaviors might come from. It's a joy to see them grow.

It seems like everyone depends on you for every little thing anymore, but deep down you want to be left alone before you fall apart. Everything feels overwhelming that you just shut down and disconnect from the world. You are overstimulated with learning how to be a parent, wife, and/or working mother that you can't seem to catch your breath. Feelings of guilt creep in while scrolling on your phone, taking a nap, or going out without your family. You spend most of your day thinking that you aren't enough and terrified someone will find out. Motherhood can be a lonely adventure without the right supports in place.

You just want the pain, chaos, and emptiness you feel to go away once and for all. Whether it is eating secretly to comfort yourself, having to drink every night to sleep, pushing yourself to achieve, or isolating yourself. Attempting to balance family, work, and your self-care can feel overwhelming and tends to end with you feeling worse about yourself and how you can't get it together. Shame and guilt keep you stationary where you are, and if you had to admit that things were not where you wanted you might actually crumble. Let's figure out a new normal, together.

We humans are all unique, with our own struggles and wounds, our own strengths, values, and ambitions. What we share is the right to live the fullest, most satisfying lives that we deserve. My special interests are in PTSD and complex trauma. If you've been told that you're stuck in the past, consider this: Most likely, the past is stuck in you. It may have helped shape you, but it no longer has to define you. If you've come to rely on substances to cope, I want to empower you to regain control. I recognize the pain that pushes individuals into these patterns, and the need to pick up the pieces after abstinence is achieved.

It seems your “colored glasses” are tinted dark with a tinge of black. “You’re not good enough.” The voices of self-doubt are winning out. “If only you were...” swirls in your head after presenting at work, taking a hard test, or spending time with a social group. There’s a loss of motivation to do the things that you did before. It might be that retreating to your couch is the only thing that sounds of any interest to you lately. It’s exhausting to summon the effort it takes to continue forward. To make matters worse, people are starting to be put off by your glass-half-empty mood at a time when you need them to give you a break.

Hi! I’m Janelle. I’m a licensed psychologist, and I specialize in working with entrepreneurial women. I understand the pressure and stress that come along with owning a business. It’s easy to be consumed by your work and to struggle with balancing work with all the other areas of your life. You often feel spread too thin and like you’re not doing a good enough job in any of the areas in your life. You feel you’re not a “good enough” business owner, partner, mother, daughter, colleague, etc. even though you're trying so hard!

Life often feels like a series transitional periods and sudden changes happening all at once. It can be overwhelming, confusing and, sometimes, lonely. It is the way we move through those times in life that matters, and there is no shame in searching for support. As women, we often feel we must have every piece of life together and when one piece goes missing from the puzzle, we feel as though we have failed each step of the way. Little do we know, there is always hope.
