Janelle Stepper Trauma Therapy

My hope is that through therapy, you can come home to yourself, live more fully alive, and experience deep and transformational healing.

As a Certified Trauma Professional, I desire to create a safe and inclusive space where you are fully seen, heard, and accepted just as you are.

Life can quickly become overwhelming, dysregulating, and agonizing in the aftermath of a traumatic event or after years of experiencing complex and compounding life stressors. I want you to know you’re not alone and I’m here to offer you a safe space to experience relief and healing.

About Me

My love for therapy brought me into this field and it is such an honor to do the work I do. I am here to empathetically listen to your story and meet you with understanding, authenticity, and acceptance. I'd love the opportunity to connect with you and see if we might be a good fit to work together.

I offer in-person therapy sessions at The Place Within Counseling Center in Roseville, California. I also offer telehealth therapy sessions for anyone who resides in the state of California.


Individual therapy is $120 and couples therapy is $130 per session. The Road Less Traveled Support Group is $45 per group.

I am a Certified Trauma Professional and help people who are healing from trauma, sexual abuse, dissociative disorders (including dissociative identity disorder), PTSD, and C-PTSD. I also support clients who are struggling with anxiety, codependency, perfectionism, people-pleasing, and relationship issues. I enjoy working with highly sensitive people (HSPS) and empaths.

I am an LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist and sex-positive therapist.


I truly believe that when it comes to therapy there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Treatment needs vary from person to person and your unique life experiences, identity, and history are all worth exploring. Services I offer include EMDR, Brainspotting, Narrative Therapy, Somatic Experiencing, IMAGO Relationship Therapy, Shadow Work/Parts Work, and Inner Child Healing.

I approach all therapy through a trauma-informed lens and draw from the theoretical orientations of Polyvagal Theory and Attachment Theory.
