Her work with schools, public health agencies, hospitals, and non-profit organizations has touched many.  Her emphasis on counseling and program planning has provided her with a variety of skills and also connected Janet to many professionals who share sensitivity to developmental and learning processes of young people.   Janet uses her enriching experiences and background to meld a variety of ideas and approaches into cohesive solutions to problems that may seem unsolvable.

In 2001, Janet established Advocates for Success, a private resource and referral program for children and young adults with learning and behavioral issues.  Advocates for Success has generated a broad client base as Janet tailors counseling and referral services to the needs and goals of each individual.  Since 2002, she has led Practical Skills Training groups for those in need of social guidance and peer connections.
