About Me

Hi, my name is Janet Suffel and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia. I graduated from Regent University (a Christian University) in May 2007. I have been licensed since July2010 and have been in private practice since that time. Choosing to become a counselor was a difficult decision for me, as it necessitated returning to school after 20 years as a working professional . However, after going through a difficult period in my life and the difficulty I experienced locating a Christian counselor, God spoke to me and I knew this was the path the rest of my life would follow.

I have experience working with adolescents and adults. The individuals I’ve worked with are dealing with resolving childhood (and recent) traumatic events in their lives as well as anxiety and/or depression. When working with trauma I assist the individual in resolving those events and help them understand how those events have impacted their life up to this point. The trauma technique I utilize includes God and His Holy Spirit in each session. God drives each session, I’m just there to point the individual in the right direction. When working with an individual dealing with anxiety, I provide concrete tools to assist them in their daily lives as well as encoring them to read Bible passages that deal with how God is with us and helps us in our daily lives.

When working with individuals dealing with anxiety and/or depression I listen to their feelings without being judgmental, which is often what people are searching for. I also provide emotional support and concrete tools to help them deal with their feelings.

Reaching out to talk to a stranger is often difficult for people in our society today. You have made the first step on the journey to the rest of your life. I am excited you have chosen me as your guide. I look forward to walking part of your life journey with you.

Janet is attentive, caring and gives me excellent advice and real life actionable items I can do to help my anxiety. She is amazing!

I highly recommend Janet! I started sessions with her because I was struggling to climb out of a several month long depression, amongst other things. I was having trouble with some extended family tragedies and some close family trials. One session at a time she helped me process and grow through these issues. She asked very helpful questions to get to the heart of the problem. She was both compassionate and encouraging as well as good at keeping me accountable to my "homework". Her faith is evident and she supports her guidance with scripture. I'm very thankful the Lord has used her as He did in my life over these past few months. ❤
