What is therapy? Therapy can also be known as counseling or psychotherapy and is a resource for people and their families to learn new tools for improving their relationships with one another.
Individual and group counseling include a variety of treatments used to treat behavioral health problems. Counseling and more specialized psychotherapies seek to change behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and how people see and understand situations (SAMSHA).

More About Janz Family Therapy, Incorporated Owner & Founder:
Heather Walker Janz, LMFT #94996
Heather is from the Central Valley and graduated with a master's degree in science with an emphasis in marriage & family therapy from California State University, Los Angeles. She received her bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in human development from California State University, Stanislaus. Heather has served as President for the California Association of Marriage & Family Therapists, Central San Joaquin Valley Chapter and on the Board in other capacities. From 2014-2016 Heather worked for a non-profit in the central valley providing individualized therapy to children, adults and families struggling with the complexities of mental health disorders and social stressors. This included serving adolescents and young adults referred through the Juvenile Justice Center, hospital, and county mental health crisis centers. Heather also has experience teaching parenting and anger management classes for the DAZ Foundation in Los Angeles, and gained training at the CSULA Psychology Clinic during her practicum. Heather's passion for working with families originally began when she worked as a recreation leader in after-school programs and saw that children's ability to learn, play and grow was affected by problems within families, trauma, lack of resources, medical and mental health conditions. Counseling and therapy services have allowed Heather to help these families in deeper ways to achieve the change they need to be healthy and successful.
