About Me

Janelle Stepper smiling

Hi, I’m Janelle, and I use she/her/hers pronouns. Welcome to my page. It’s so great to have you here!

I am a Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, AMFT #134884. I see clients for in-person and teletherapy sessions at The Place Within in Roseville, California. I am under the direct supervision of Gary Henderson, LMFT #7053, and Alexis Marson, LMFT #80115.

I am a Certifed Trauma Professional and a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner (Phase 1, Phase 2, and Expansion). I am passionate about helping my clients heal from trauma and regulate their nervous systems.

In 2022, I graduated from Palo Alto University with a Master of Arts in Counseling with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy. In 2017, I graduated from William Jessup University with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with an emphasis in Counseling.

Here’s a 2-minute video to learn a little more about me.

(Video was taken at my old office in Loomis, I am now at a new office in Roseville.)

I am a big fan of therapy and have benefited in so many ways from the incredible therapists who have been a part of my journey. The healing journey from trauma is full of much unlearning and relearning. This process can be hard, but it is often full of endless possibilities for growth and newfound depths of knowing self. With that being said, I understand how scary it can be to take that first step and begin to prioritize your mental health. Please know that I take a client-centered and collaborative approach to therapy and will move at a pace and in a direction that feels right to you. I hope that with time, you can experience transformational healing in your life, come home to yourself, and live more fully alive.

I will show up as my authentic self to our therapy sessions and desire to cultivate a safe and accepting space where you are seen and heard. I will sit with you in the most painful and lowest moments of life and celebrate with you in the most exciting and highest moments of life. Sometimes you might come into our sessions looking for a solution, and other times you might show up needing a safe place to land. No matter what you are going through, I will be here for you.

I provide trauma-informed care to adults, teenagers, and couples. Life can get challenging, and it can be helpful to know that someone who cares about you and understands is there for you.

Therapy can help you resiliently rewrite your story and create a more adaptive and meaningful life narrative. I take a client-centered approach to therapy and would be honored to hear your story.
