Janessa M. Borges, LCSW

Individuals, Couples, Marriage, & Family Therapy.

It is never too late to live the life you have always
dreamed of living.

I have fifteen years of experience working with individuals and families. As a therapist, I provide compassionate support for individual therapy, couples counseling, and family therapy. I also work with children and adolescents, either individually or as part of family sessions. My areas of special focus include relationship challenges, self-esteem, life transitions, strengthening healthy communication, and adjusting to changes in life. Whether you feel stressed, overwhelmed by feelings of sadness, or worried that your relationship is currently in trouble, I will walk with you and help you through the process of change.

I find great joy and meaning in helping my clients gain insight and awareness. I also seek to access their innate strengths, resources, and to further develop their skills and confidence to create a more fulfilling and balanced life.

I view therapy as a collaborative process and I am respectful of each person’s unique challenges, strengths, and goals.

My therapeutic approach is providing support to help clients effectively address personal life challenges, help them build on their strengths, and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing. I offer you a safe, welcoming space to explore current struggles, express what causes you pain, expand your self-awareness of internal and external obstacles and establish pathways toward deep and lifelong change.

I view therapy as a collaborative process, and I am respectful of each person’s unique challenges, strengths and goals. I integrate eclectic techniques offering a personalized approach tailored to each client. The treatment modalities I integrate in our work together are guided by your concerns, symptoms, and preferences. We will incorporate techniques that are grounded in evidence-based best practices and current research on the process of change.

As an experienced therapist, my role is to guide you as you take steps towards positive life changes, healing, and a healthy mind. Together we will work to uncover and provide a better understanding of life’s challenges and day-to-day stressors that detract from your daily life. We will focus on identifying both weaknesses and strengths while practicing techniques that will assist you in achieving your goals.

I consider all my clients to be more than just another name or simply another consultation. Therapy is intended to be a completely individual experience, and I treat it as such, with deep compassion and absolutely absent of any judgment. Not only do I want to provide support and encouragement for each of my clients, but it is my goal to offer practical resources that you can immediately put into practice in your daily life. Everyone is capable of achieving personal growth and garnering emotional strength, and it will be an honor to join you in your journey of achieving these goals.
