About My Clients

My hope is that through therapy, you can come home to your authentic self, live more fully alive, and experience deep and transformational healing. I understand how overwhelming, dysregulating, and agonizing life can become in the aftermath of a traumatic event or after years of experiencing abuse and neglect from someone who was supposed to protect and support you. I want you to know you’re not alone and I’m here to offer you a safe and accepting space to experience relief and healing.

My Background and Approach

Individual therapy for teens and adults is $120 and couples therapy is $130. I am a Certified Trauma Professional and help people who are healing from trauma, sexual abuse, dissociative disorders (including dissociative identity disorder), PTSD, and C-PTSD. I also support clients who are struggling with anxiety, codependency, perfectionism, people-pleasing, and relationship issues. Furthermore, I enjoy working with highly sensitive people and empaths. I deeply value the relationships I form with my clients and getting to empower and support them as they rediscover/reclaim their incredible worth and value. I desire to go beyond mere symptom management and will help you explore the roots of your concerns so you can heal on a deeper level. I am a Poly/ENM/CNM, BDSM, and kink-affirming therapist. I am a Certified Brainspotting Practitioner. You can learn more about me by visiting my website janellestepper.com or my IG account @janellestepper_traumatherapist.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As an LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist, I validate and support my clients on topics related to sexuality, gender identity, gender expression, and more. I am a member of the LGBTQIA+ community myself and I understand how important it is to find a therapist who welcomes and accepts you just as you are. I hope to create a safe space where you can live more fully, more authentically, and more freely yourself, and you can truly come home to the wonderful you. Therapy can help you unpack, navigate, and work through challenging situations you have gone through. Common topics that I help my LGBTQIA+ clients with in therapy include processing past trauma, exploring their gender identity, sharing their identity with friends and family, working through any internalized transphobia or homophobia, increasing self-esteem, increasing pride, and reducing anxiety and depression. You deserve to live your life unbound and free. Please reach out if you'd like to connect over a free 15-minute consultation.
