About Janet

Let me introduce myself —

Janet Schryer Donahue, Therapist JSD-7-21A-226x300 About  As a therapist, I work toward helping to relieve suffering experienced due to Trauma, Anxiety, Stress, Grief, Depression, and ADD/ADHD.  I integrate a wide variety of therapies to help you develop the tools for long-term relief, enabling you to live your best possible life.

I am very concerned about inadequate and misdiagnosis of  Trauma and ADHD.  For instance, many come telling me they have seen a therapist for years for Anxiety and Depression, but the underlying trauma causing it was never addressed.  In the case of ADHD, both research and experience show that the behaviors used to diagnose can be based in several other core issues.  For this reason, I incorporate more definitive testing than behavior-based reports, and provide non-medicinal approaches to treatment.    My emphasis is on using the least possible medicinal intervention for all clients while helping to increase your life satisfaction.  If you do need medication, I can help you find a good fit for a prescriber.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Michigan with a Master’s Degree from Oakland University, and am a Nationally Certified Counselor.  In addition, I have completed hundreds of hours in advanced studies beyond my university degree.  I hold levels l &ll credentials in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional designation.  These studies continue as science is constantly teaching us new things.  I provide Brain Spotting, which meshes well with EMDR.  Christian Counseling is available if requested.  I offer qEEG (brain mapping) assessment and neurofeedback to fill a dire need in our area.

Previously, I have worked in several school districts and as a therapist in a substance abuse program.  I built, provided, and coordinated services for a grant-funded Survivors of Torture program in Southeast Michigan.  I  am now in private practice working with individuals to achieve their goals and relieve suffering.

It has been my privilege to be a featured speaker/trainer in various school districts, church groups, the MISD, Michigan Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Oakland University’s Journalism and Medical Departments, the City of Troy, and before a task force of the State of Michigan Legislature on topics surrounding trauma.

Two convenient locations in Clinton Township, Michigan are available.   Each has a different focus, services available, and take different insurances.  We can discuss your needs and intentions at your free 15-minute phone consultation.  One location is TADAS and Associates LLC counseling center, which I founded and am Director to provide advanced and non-traditional forms of assessment and  therapy such as neurofeedback.

I am here to help.  What do you want to accomplish?

What clients say

“Janet is very attentive, patient, and easy to talk to. She is genuinely concerned with helping me through difficult time. I find myself looking forward to our visits.”

“My time talking to Janet has been very helpful and focused.”

“The kindest person ever. Very professional and competent.”
“I will be going to my 5th appointment this evening. I am so excited about the EMDR therapy that Janet is trying, I feel better just knowing that she is helping me on the road to freedom from anxiety. Thank you Janet!!”
“She is a warm and understanding personality. My first session went really well. We covered a lot of information without it being rushed. She really has a true gift. Looking forward to my future sessions with her.”
“My life has completely changed thanks to janet & EMDR! I was hopeless and saw no future when I first started seeing her. Now, I am very sure that not only do I have a future but it is bright & full of possibilities. I was never a fan of counseling, now because of my improvement my husband wants to try counseling & us hopeful that he can be as happy as I am! The change is very noticeable!! Anyone who has wondered if it works should be encouraged to try.”
“Janet is very personable and gets straight to the point. She brings light to the table and gives hope to her clients.”
“These sessions have been SO much better than my last experience with a counselor years ago. Janet is very interactive, conversational, and personable. She gives tidbits of wisdom and helpful techniques to help me deal with stress and anxiety. It’s been a very good experience thus far.”
I have seen so many therapists over the years, but none of them seemed to help much. Until I found Janet, who got right to the heart of my problems very quickly and it was like a lightbulb coming on! Childhood trauma, C-ptsd and it all makes sense. We have been making extraordinary progress, I have to say EMDR helped tremendously.
Janet is very kind and warm-hearted, and I enjoy all of our sessions. I would definitely recommend Janet Schryer Donahue.

Right now I feel pretty happy and am more at peace with the situation.  I feel right now that I can continue independently with the exercises and resources you have given me. I wanted to say thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.  You have done so much for me these last 6 months and I credit therapy for helping me.

Thank you for helping me through my traumas and other issues. You were a tremendous help! “Thank you” feels woefully inadequate. I was blessed to find you, and I wish you many blessings in return.

I could not ask for a better therapist. She totally understands me, listens to me, and has helped me like no other.

“Janet’s wonderful!  I spoke to her in person before COVID hit, and I had recently come back to her for online therapy.  She’s a great therapist who knows her stuff, she is very empathetic and makes me feel heard and understood.  I look forward to each session with her!  🙂

 I absolutely love my therapist here. I came to her for the first time in 2019. After a really rough year, I finally admitted I needed help and my doctor recommended Janet. She has been such a wonderful listener, she has given me the most helpful tools, and she has pushed me to become the person I want to be. I will continue to see her when I need assistance and I would definitely recommend her!
