My name is Janette S. Cordero and I offer bilingual therapeutic services to adults and adolescents in Austin, TX. I moved to Austin from San Antonio in 2004, where my work with youth and their families first began. Since then I have helped numerous adults and teens cope with traumatic events, personal crises, difficult relationships, and problematic behaviors.
My passion is social justice. As a first generation American, Latina, and member of the LBGTQA+ community, I have learned the critical, sometimes dire, importance of advocating for the rights and voices of marginalized groups. I enjoy providing a safe therapeutic space for members of underrepresented communities, as these resilient individuals also deserve a place of peace. I embrace the unique differences between individuals; sameness is not required for us to work effectively together.
I believe resiliency exists in all of us, but at times we can lose sight of our strengths and resources if we are overwhelmed by life. In times of stress, most of us yearn to remember what it is like to feel and be whole. That’s what I want for all my clients. During our therapeutic journey, we will discover, connect with, and heal old hurts that may be affecting your present and create a greater understanding, deeper love, and strong appreciation for the singular being you are today. I hope to help you enhance your problem-solving skills; fine-tune your thinking patterns; compassionately learn from your mistakes; and set goals, feeling empowered all along the way. If you begin therapy willing to overcome difficulties rather than avoid problems, I believe our work together will be life altering. This is your time, your space, your life, and I am honored to be part of the ride.
