Written by S.H. on Dec 01, 2021 after therapy with San Juanita for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Janie has been an absolute blessing to my life in so many ways. She speaks with such sincerity and peace in her heart. She has a lot of experience with families, which was extremely helpful in processing my childhood traumas. Janie is a wonderful therapist via any medium: text, phone or video - I always come out of our sessions with a restored sense of well-being.
