Janai Harris

9 years of experience

I am a licensed clinical social worker in both California and Illinois with over nine years of experience working as a therapist and life coach. I also have my doctorate in clinical psychology. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, stress management, life skill development, effective communication skills and conflict resolution, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, ADD/ADHD, and various additional areas. I have worked with clients throughout all life stages: from children in school settings, adolescents at colleges and universities, and adults in both the inpatient medical setting and in private practice, as well as correctional facilities. I also help individuals who have experienced traumatic life events. In addition to direct practice, I also supervise a team of mental health professionals providing care to mentally, physically, and developmentally impaired patients in an enhanced outpatient setting.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

After our initial session, where a lot of demographic data and historical information is discussed, clients can expect to have a safe and judgment free space to discuss their challenges, while simultaneously being challenged to work through their presenting issues. In session, we will process and unpack but also will actively work on problems to foster growth and healing.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

My counseling style is warm and interactive and rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy and solution-focused therapy. I employ a humanistic, holistic, person-centered, strengths-based, culturally competent approach. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and prioritize fostering a healthy therapeutic relationship. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I believe in recognizing and encouraging each client's potential for personal growth and change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My biggest strengths are my cultural competency, empathy, solution-focused approach and ability to create a treatment plan and corresponding goals that center the client and their needs. Our professional partnership is based on the reality that both you and I both have expertise (whether personal or professional) when working together to yield the best results for your mental health and well-being.
