Janie Hortman | Johns Creek, Dunwoody, Milton, Cumming

MA, LAPC

As a counselor, Janie puts emphasis on the therapeutic relationship and creating an environment for the client to feel safe and learn to grow in their own strengths. She specializes in work with children and adolescents because she believes strongly that when children feel control is lost, they need help finding their voice. By using play therapy techniques, Janie believes children can grow in confidence, self-control, and taking responsibility.

She sees family as an important aspect of the relationship process. A child's parents can be their biggest supporters, so they need to be incorporated into counseling and the growth process. Therefore, parents are encouraged to take an active role in therapy as well.

Janie primarily works with children ranging from four to middle-school age and uses play therapy techniques. Her areas of concentration are anxiety, depression, self-esteem, bullying, self-harm, divorce, ADHD, and life transitions. She practices through the Summit Counseling Center because she believes in their mission and vision for clients.
