Janette assists people with improving boundaries and relationships, building confidence and self-acceptance and identifying life paths and goals. Emphasis is placed on each person’s personal strengths, awareness of options and connection to others. Janette believes that the body often holds onto frightening, painful experiences, leading people to feel “stuck,” in patterns of emotional and/or physical distress. Janette helps clients to process their experiences, feelings and thoughts using mindfulness, cognitive restructuring and various body centered methods of anxiety and pain reduction. These techniques are designed to facilitate a shift in trauma’s hold on the body. Janette favors a holistic approach, including exploration of options for exercise, diet, health and lifestyle changes that may positively affect mood.
