I am also experienced in working with individuals who are involved in multiple systems, such as Department of Human Services. I use a variety of therapeutic interventions depending on the needs of the individual clients. I have a special interest in working with children using a play therapy format, Borderline Personality Disorder, and Mindfulness practice.

Jana Grady, LISW

I work with individuals who have any number of diverse mental health diagnoses. Among them are depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, anger problems, hoarding, suicidal, ADHD/ADD, and substance issues. I have been in a clinical therapy role for 9 years, and in the Social Work field for 25 years. It is largely due to my experiences at prior jobs, as well as through being a parent, that have helped to prepare me with insights for my current role. The best aspect of my profession is being able to witness positive change in clients, as well as their accomplishments.
