About Me

My name is Janel Lynch Bacon and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Over the last 20 years of working in this field, my clients and colleagues would say that my biggest strength is my ability to connect with people; to be present with them during sessions, and to lead and teach them during their therapeutic journey. I am interested in learning about you, your strengths and struggles. Specifically, what do you want to change, and how you want to change it. If you carry shame or guilt about your difficulties I will understand. My non-judgmental, humor-infused approach will hopefully help you to feel safe as we explore how your thoughts and feelings are affecting your behavior. As we build our therapeutic relationship, I will deliver honest, direct therapy to you. Ideally reducing defensiveness and allowing you to hear what you need to hear. My approach comes from deeply caring about others, encouraging them to be curious about life, and wanting to see them maximize their personal potential.
