Janet Mize, LMFT-Associate Supervised by Kirby Sandlin Schroeder LPC-S, LMFT-S
Hello! Welcome, I am so glad you are here. My fascination with the uniqueness in everyone’s story and passion for supporting couples, individuals, and families throughout the life cycle drives my work as a therapist. I am committed to quality client care and strive to create an authentic experience. Life is a journey with unique twists, turns, ups, and downs. I like to collaborate with clients to tailor therapy to their current needs. My goal is to help you navigate challenges and feel more confident and empowered to live your best life – whatever that may be!
Research has shown that one of the best predictors of a successful therapeutic experience is a strong therapeutic alliance and rapport between the therapist and client. In our therapeutic relationship, my role is to be an empathetic guide by offering support and insight. I aim to create an environment of safety, understanding, and empowerment and include all intersections of race, culture, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression. I work relationally and am guided by Strengths, Narrative, Collaborative, Child-Centered Play Therapy, and CBT techniques. I am a certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator and enjoy bringing the tenets and key concepts of Positive Discipline into my work with parents and guardians. I have also completed The Gottman Institute Training Level 1 and use this approach when working with couples.
I am an Austinite (born and raised!). Outside of therapy, I enjoy being outdoors, finding new trails to explore, spending time with my husband, two energetic boys, two sweet pups, and catching up on the latest TV binge! I welcome the opportunity to meet with you and look forward to starting this journey with you!
