More About Janet Westlund

Clinical Interests:

I enjoy working with individuals 18+ who have experienced trauma, grief/loss, substance abuse, and difficult life transitions.

Clinical Approach:

I believe you are the expert on your life and that it is a great honor to partner with you. I am relational and inquisitive in my approach and enjoy giving you tangible tools to use in your everyday life. My approach varies depending on the person I'm working with and what they need, but have clinical experience in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, DBT skills, Psychodymanic Psychotherapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, and EMDR.

Hobbies:

I spend my free time exploring Minnesota, spending time with family or friends or pets, gardening, and reading. I enjoy art, music, and movies as well.
