My name is Brittany Janes, and I graduated from Pacific University in Hillsboro in 2019 with my PsyD in Clinical Psychology. I chose to stay a “generalist” in my studies in order to feel competent working with a wide variety of clients. I prioritize my journey in cultural competence by engaging in classes and self-paced research furthering my understanding, so that I continue working effectively with clients of many backgrounds and belief systems.
I use a nonjudgmental, collaborative approach working with clients. Often therapy includes identifying the root of an issue going on, then exploring options for increasing life satisfaction, and identifying strategies to help maintain that level of satisfaction after therapy ends. Common presenting issues include anxiety and depression, grief, relationship stress, communication struggles, and processing and moving through trauma. I work with both adults and teenagers.
I also want to explicitly state that I am open to working with other professionals, as it can be difficult for finding therapy for therapists and other professionals. We all need support and I am happy to offer my services.
On a personal note, I moved out to Columbia County from Clackamas County in 2022. I love the open air, beautiful landscapes, and abundant wildlife. I have started a bird watching hobby since moving out here, and apparently home a flock of hummingbirds on my property. I find it very entertaining watching them!
