“Jana was my second therapist in my young adult life. I worked with her for 4 years. I started with her when she was a student and followed her to every site of her externship. I stayed on with her when she graduated and was a hired as a clinician and saw her continuously until I moved out of the Chicagoland are. I wish I was still in Chicago because I would likely be seeing her to this day. She is kind, compassionate, understanding. She is a skilled therapist and I’m sure a great mentor to her colleagues. I am of a minority background of both race and religion and a lot of my struggles with anxiety were rooted in this. She really took her time to understand the nuances of my experiences, their social impact, and their impact on mental health. I have worked with about 10 therapists in my adult life and Jana is easily in the top 3 of my favorite and most skilled therapists to work with. If you are working with her–cherish your time together! If you are thinking of working with her–please take my recommendation in doing so. I have nothing but love and respect for Jana”!

“I have been seeing Jana since 2016 across a few different practices she has worked at, and am so happy that she now has her own practice. Jana is affirming, culturally-competent, and incredibly warm. Her trauma-informed approach to her work was truly ground-breaking for me and my work with her led me to going back to school in order to pursue a masters in clinical mental health counseling for myself. I have referred many close friends and family members to Jana over the years and if you’re looking for a counselor who is easy to talk to, extremely empathetic/knowledgeable, and who clearly cares about her clients, competency, and the world around her — look no further than Jana”!

“I have been seeing Jana for almost 2 years, and I could not recommend her more. She is extremely intuitive, and I always leave with resources from book recommendations to mindfulness tools to help with my anxiety. Jana is also incredibly culturally and socially aware; she does an amazing job being responsive to my specific needs. I felt comfortable with her immediately, and this has only grown more every session”.

“I’ve had the privilege to know Jana professionally, and I’m very impressed by her knowledge, caring, and support for her clients. As a career counselor and life coach, I have referred clients to Jana, and I have been honored to receive client referrals from her. Jana’s clients have shared exceptionally positive feedback with me, regarding her empowering therapeutic approach, ability to meet them where they’re at, and understanding of their unique situation. Jana is highly professional while also being warm, welcoming, and empathetic. I have full confidence in referring my clients to Jana and I highly recommend her”. – Marilyn Fettner, LCPC, CCC, NCC.
