Janis Paonessa, MA, LMFT

Belief Statement:

I believe that every human is a social being from birth, and has a fundamental need to be in connection with others. Although we spend our entire lives achieving this state, sometimes we need a little help.

My commitment is to guide others in acquiring the skills necessary to live effective, meaningful lives, to the benefit of themselves, their families and their communities.
