a young girl get along better with her peers at school
a couple work through a difficult impasse in their relationship
a mother or father parent an oppositional teenager
a woman find the balance of physical, psychological, and relational health
a businesswoman dig deep to push through disabling depression or anxiety
Janette has a way of making her clients feel understood and accepted while offering them authentic feedback with objective professionalism.
