These changes will inevitably enhance and build on their existing strengths, insights, and skills while they cultivate new ones.  Janae truly believes that most people instinctively know what is best for them and their situation. However, she understands that sometimes we do not follow our instincts for a variety of reasons; including (but not at all limited to) situational circumstances, unhealthy relationships, and low self-esteem. Janae’s therapeutic experience serves as a motivator to reach the root areas of concern in order to ensure her clients’ growth, stability, and overall wellness.
