My Counseling Area Specialties

Our past experiences, trauma, intrusive thoughts, society and media tell us who we should be; but often, we feel that inside, we don’t fit that mold. Experiencing the world as someone who isn’t certain who we are and who we want to be can feel overwhelming or disheartening. It can worsen loneliness, anxiety, and depression and leave us unable to feel confident enough to interact with those we love. It can also prevent us from meeting or choosing healthy individuals who contribute positively to our lives. 

It is Jay's goal to provide services that are rooted in non-judgmental acceptance, kindness, and respect. It is her goal to provide an eclectic, open-minded approach that is unique for every client’s individual needs, combining education, improved coping strategies, and understanding the root causes of maladaptive thinking. 

Jay received her undergraduate degree in 2000 from the University of West Georgia. Upon graduating, Janet began practicing at an intensive program for children and teens, and while practicing, she achieved her graduate degree in 2006 from Argosy University in Atlanta. Janet has over 21 years of experience in many different roles and many different levels of care, from inpatient to intensive in home counseling. She is open to referrals from age 2 to 102. Her specialties are the LGBTQ+ population, parenting, anxiety, depression, poor self-worth, teens, and marriage counseling.

This is for Georgia residents only.
