About Janelle Peifer

I believe in therapy situated within a clear, warm space that sparks exploration. I believe in therapy that is collaborative and challenging. I believe in therapy that honors the complexities of our human identities and experiences. I believe in therapy. -- I am a licensed clinical psychologist, assistant professor, and researcher committed to working alongside a vast diversity of clients as they navigate their lives. While I have significant experience working with an array of child, adult, and adolescent clients, I focus on providing therapy to people who have experienced trauma, young adults navigating their emerging identities, and couples and families processing life transitions. I have worked in schools, hospitals, college counseling centers, veteran's affairs administrations, and community mental health clinics and believe in low-barrier, solutions-focused therapy rooted in evidence-based practices.
