Janet Gueli


15 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi! I'm Janet, an LCSW licensed in CT with extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and families. I also have a M.Ed. in elementary education and have taught in classrooms from Pre-K to Grade 8 in CT and NY. My passion has always been working with children, adolescents, and their families. In addition to offering virtual therapy, I work as a school clinician at a therapeutic high school that serves adolescents with extensive psychiatric histories. Some of my clients are residential and some of my clients live at home and commute to my school. In the past, I have worked in a domestic violence shelter and outreach center outside of Boston, the CT Birth to Three program, and intensive in home psychiatric programs in CT. Additionally, I have experience working in the foster care systems in CT and NY.

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

In your first session, you can expect to answer basic questions and have an opportunity to ask me questions as well. I am open to understanding helpful interventions that have worked in the past so that we can incorporate them into our sessions as well. Collaborating with you to determine your goals and working together and to support you from start to end from the first session to the end of treatment are a huge part of my approach.

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

My passion and dedication to my clients are evident in my interactions and timely responses to messages. I am a highly committed professional who provides a safe, non-judgmental, and caring yet direct approach in working with clients. My style is warm and direct and my goal is to help you step out of your comfort zone on your journey.

My treatment methods


In my sessions, I incorporate and build upon client strengths in order to empower clients to use their own strengths and abilities to move forward with their own journey and healing process.

Family Therapy

When working with clients who are experiencing family conflict, I collaborate with clients and families using solution-focused treatment. My goal is to help clients reduce stressors and find healthy communication skills and ways to cope with the conflict.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

In working with clients for shorter periods of time, my goal is to help clients determine what is changeable and in their control in order to move forward on their journey.
