I believe everyone is doing their best with where they’re at in life. Sometimes life can get scary, stressful, and overwhelming. It helps to know you don’t have to go through hardships alone and that these feelings don’t have to last forever.

I desire to create a safe, warm, and inclusive space where you are seen and known. I would be honored to hear your story and meet you with authenticity, acceptance, and support.

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

I am a trauma-informed Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #134884.

I offer in-person and telehealth sessions at The Place Within Counseling in Roseville, California.

I am under the direct supervision of Gary Henderson, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #7053, and Alexis Marson, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #80115.

I am a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner.

Hi, I’m Janelle!

Welcome, it’s so great to have you here. You matter, and your mental health is worth supporting. Whether you are hoping to improve your relationships with others or your relationship with yourself, you are worthy of having your experiences validated and understood.

In our sessions together, I hope to cultivate a safe space where you are seen and heard. I am here for you and would be honored to hear what brings you in for therapy and how I can best support you.

I work with individual adults, teenagers, and couples.

I am passionate about working with people who are healing from trauma, PTSD, and sexual abuse. I also help clients navigate codependency, perfectionism, people-pleasing, anxiety, depression, sexual concerns, dissociative disorders, life transitions, grief, boundary-setting, and unhealthy relationship dynamics. Furthermore, I help highly sensitive and empathic people struggling with overstimulation, burnout, and compassion fatigue.

I am an LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist and enjoy working with this population.

I approach therapy through a trauma-informed lens and take a collaborative and client-centered approach to healing.

My therapeutic method most strongly aligns with Narrative Therapy which believes the stories you tell yourself about yourself are important. I also utilize aspects of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Imago Relationship Therapy, and Parts Work Therapy throughout treatment.

I am a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner and enjoy using this body-based modality to help my clients heal from trauma and regulate their nervous systems.
