Dr. Janjenette Collier

Dedicated to assisting you with recreating your story.  Your healing is the next chapter.

My purpose and passion in life is to assist those who are emotionally and/ or psychologically distressed. Attempting to take a non-judge-mental stance, I respect others and recognize that everyone has a story that is uniquely different from all others. If you allow me the opportunity, I will mentally go with you to the places that have caused your pain. Together we will identify the root to your issues and discover ways to cope, decrease or cease them. I know that at times, life is not always easy. Sometimes even the most strongest individuals need assistance with working through some of life’s most difficult challenges. Everyone, at some point in life, have battles to fight. Regardless of what your struggle is, you should know that there is hope. Your struggles do not have to be a permanent fixture in your life. Let me assist you with finding the peace and the motivation you feel that is needed to help you overcome. I am open minded and I love people from all walks of life. As a result, I am passionate about the services I provide, which means I am passionate about you.

You Centered Approach

Utilizing various therapeutic techniques, I tailor my services according to an individual and or family’s need(s). If you are suffering with mood disorders (depression and anxiety), stress, relationships, self esteem, a chronic illness, life transitions, parenting issues, or maybe you are feeling “stuck” with no insight on how to move forward; allow me to assist you.

I offer services to individual, couples and families. In order to live a life that you feel is fulfilling and meaningful, you must do the work. That’s the only way to reach your fullest potential. You can do it! Together, we will uncover underlying issues and get you to the place where you fully recognize your strengths. You will learn to adjust certain patterns of behaviors and thoughts to help you become a better you. Upon completion of services, it is my desire that you would have:
a) gained insight about your issue/ situation(s),
b) developed coping skills, tools, or resources, and,
c) obtained your goals.
Are you ready? I’m ready when you are. Contact me today and let’s get to work! Let’s recreate your story!
