“My work experience as a therapist has given me the opportunity to work with diverse populations that include a wide range of issues. I have worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, grief and loss, recognizing and recovering from psychological abuse as well as other relationship struggles and life transitions. I use evidence based treatment and I am constantly expanding my knowledge of ways to help clients resolve past issues and lead more satisfying lives. Mental health concerns can impact any of us in our daily lives and present unexpected hurdles.” – Janet Engelgau


Janet works with adults and couples in our Bellevue Branch on Sunday.


As a licensed independent clinical social worker in the State of Washington, I work with individuals and couples as they try to deal communication struggles and issues that may present as problems in their relationships. In addition, I also have experience working with adults who present with a wide range of mental health and adjustment issues.

I help clients identify their personal strengths and build resilience to improve the overall functioning and quality of their lives. Certain patterns of behavior result in increased stress, frustration and even depression. It can be overwhelming when these patterns of behaving and thinking impact both the personal and work spheres of your life.
