(LPC)

About Me

Hello and welcome!
My name is Janelle Potts. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor in Pennsylvania and I completed my Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology at Marywood University in Scranton. Over the past 10 years, I have gained experience working with children, adolescent, adults, couples and families in a variety of settings including outpatient, residential, corrections and medical settings. I am comfortable using a variety of approaches to address concerns such as depression, anxiety, trauma, relationships concerns and other issues. As a committed Christian, I understand both the role of our faith in our wellbeing as well as the ways in which mental health concerns can affect our faith.
My counseling style is warm, accepting, and compassionate and I work together with my clients to tailor our approach to their personal need. I am down to earth and related, putting my clients at ease. I enjoy emphasizing my clients’ strengths and abilities, inspiring change and growth and providing tools to assist them even after counseling is completed. I rely on strategies from Cognitive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral, trauma informed, Solution Focused, Client centered, family systems approaches.
Starting a new journey takes courage and it would be a privilege to work together with you.
