About Janelle Dirstine, MA, LPC

Welcome to my practice!

I’m dedicated to helping my clients move past traumatic events that may be hindering them from living life to the fullest. I understand that each person’s journey is unique, which is why I individualize treatment using modalities like EMDR and Brainspotting therapy. I believe in a holistic approach to therapy and work to align with you and your goals.

My goal is to work with you to enable you to live fully in your present and plan effectively for the future, while also ensuring that you are not hindered by your past.
While I enjoy working with a diverse group of clients, I am particularly passionate about working with 1st Responders and Emergency Personnel. I find it enlivening to see these individuals flourish in their lives and overcome the unique stressors and challenges they face. However, I also work with therapists, social workers, teachers, RNs, investigators, attorneys, veterans, and more. I believe that anyone who serves our community deserves support and care.
Whether you’re seeking short-term or long-term therapy, I’m here to help.

If you’re new to therapy or returning after a break, or if you’re specifically interested in EMDR therapy and Brainspotting, I welcome you to my practice. As someone married to a medically retired firefighter and paramedic, I have been interested in Secondary Trauma and Compassion Fatigue since 2000. I understand the toll that serving can take on individuals, and I’m dedicated to helping them overcome any obstacles that may be in their way.

My approach is compassionate, non-judgmental, and focused on helping you achieve your goals.
