About Janet Kester

Welcome!  Therapy is a process of self-discovery.  The decision to seek therapy is a sign of strength and an indication that you are willing to invest in yourself!  I have found that each person comes to therapy with a unique set of strengths, experiences, relationships, and challenges that require an individually tailored treatment approach. 

My goal for each session is to create a warm and inviting relationship and atmosphere where together we can explore and discover insights about your life, the root cause of stumbling blocks, and the means to help you heal, change, and grow.  Whether you have lifelong problems or perhaps more current issues you are dealing with, I believe there is always a path available for change.

Making the first call is often the most difficult step.  I offer a free, no-obligation initial phone consultation where we can assess your needs and find out if we're a good fit.  If my clinic staff or I cannot meet your needs, we will be happy to offer you appropriate referrals and resources.  

I’m always honored when a  person allows me the opportunity to be a part of their life experience and to assist them in their goal to live life well.    Please do not hesitate to call or text me at 248-210-6012. The therapy services I offer are via online videoconferencing and in-person equine-assisted psychotherapy.  My current clients really appreciate the convenience of utilizing telemental health! If you would prefer sessions in person, meet me at the barn!
