Helping you do & be your best.


by Janet Panter, Ph.D.


When people ask me about my counseling approach or how I manage a particular issue, my answer is, "It depends." In part, it depends on the client. That is, what isn't working right? How can I help? It depends on the context. Where & when is it happening? It depends on...well, you get the idea.


My job is to work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your goals and helps you get where you want to go. Throughout this process, I bring my particular expertise to bear, but you are key here. You decide what you need. You define the issues. And I provide support with a little insight and guidance along the way.


 We will work together. I want to get to know you and to understand your successes and challenges. As cliche as it sounds, I want to help you do & be your best. Let's talk.
