I began working with Janeen in 2019. After having been to more traditional talk therapists over the years, I wanted to find a different approach to healing my grief.
I instantly clicked with Janeen at my first session. The art that I made in sessions with Janeen was profound and could not have been expressed in words, but Janeen found a variety of ways for me to express my deep sorrow in the art.
Janeen is a positive and nurturing soul.
After 2 years with Janeen, she has become an important part of my healing journey.
I would highly recommend Janeen to anyone needing a different approach to conventional therapy sessions.
I had such a great experience taking Janeen’s self directed course, ‘6 Archetypes That Transform Grief’. One of the most impactful things that I gained from taking her course was a really solid and clear framework for the grief experience. I really love that this course talks about chakras and the way that the energy of grief manifests in the body. The course really connects all the different archetypes to the way our energy expresses itself within our body. I found so much value in the fact that there was an acknowledgment of that aspect of the grief experience. Lastly, I loved the art experientials! I really love that Janeen offers so much of her own personal experience with grief throughout the course because it made me feel that she was very accessible as a presenter and it also normalized the grief process for me.
I approached Janeen because I was looking for an art therapist to work with my daughter who was diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD. My daughter developed a close and trusting relationship with Janeen where she felt comfortable to share about school and family. My daughter participated in really interesting and exciting art projects to support and build on the therapeutic alliance between she and Janeen. I also met with Janeen for sessions to explore parenting issues and the hardships it entailed. I found Janeen to be caring, creative, non judgmental and a great listener. I highly recommend Janeen
I started seeing Janeen to learn how to cope with my anxiety, depression and low self esteem. As an international adoptee, finding a therapist that has an understanding of the nuances and challenges that international adoptees have throughout their life was super important to me. I was nervous to see an art therapist because I don't consider myself to be an artist in any way but Janeen made me feel comfortable in the creative process right away. She assured me that creating even very basic art pieces would be able to unlock the feelings that needed to be expressed for my healing. Janeen is non judgmental, empathetic and kind.
