About My Clients

[I am a Resilience Lab therapist.] This strengths-based therapist makes use of Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help clients locate felt emotions in the body, communicate with different parts of the self, and revisit significant experiences from the past. Jañelle has spent her career working in outpatient therapeutic services, treating clients presenting with concerns ranging from anxiety and depression, to trauma and sexual intimacy

My Background and Approach

Jañelle’s therapeutic stance is one of low-expert power, so she allows clients to describe the context of their experiences, without judging what is proper or improper functioning. She believes that the therapeutic process should be a collaborative effort: the client is the expert on their own lived experience, and she likes to work in tandem with the client to provide opportunities for growth and transformance. To achieve this, she aims not only to foster an environment of warmth, safety, and trust, but to provide tools and information that are comprehensive and digestible. Jañelle wants to make space in her practice for creatives/entertainers, especially, who often sacrifice so much of their mental, emotional, and psychological wellbeing to create art and provide entertainment for others. But when so much of your work depends on your ability to effectively feel into your body and emotions, creatives and entertainers may find themselves feeling like a painter working with frayed brus

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

One of the greatest joys I’ve experienced in life has been hearing clients tell me that they look forward to our sessions together. I find it touching because it tells me two things: that I’ve helped them to achieve personal growth, and that I’ve fostered an environment of warmth, safety, and trust in which to do so. I believe that a strong relationship between the client and the clinician allows for transformation to take place. That's why my primary goal as a clinician is to fully see and know you. I also believe that my greatest tool as a clinician is my personhood, so I show up to every session as my full self, and I encourage you to do the same. Because every part of your Self is valid, and worthy of being heard. It takes great courage to reach out for support, so I'm glad you did, and I'm happy to help!
