Hello, I’m Dr. Jan Anderson. I’m a licensed clinical professional counselor with a doctorate in clinical psychology. I specialize in relationship and life strategies for professionals and executives — including individuals, couples and families — and have been in private practice in Louisville, Kentucky since 2000.
I am a featured behavioral health columnist for M.D.Update magazine, write a popular blog (check it out here on the website) and speak and consult with organizations interested in evidence-based approaches to relationships, work, wellness and life transitions.
One of the things that’s different about me is I have a diverse background of real-world corporate business experience and I also have expertise in holistic and mindfulness-based therapies, including MBCT (Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy) and MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction).
I’m the author of a mindfulness audio collection: Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction: Four Guided Experiences and Mindful Eating Meditation: The Key to Eating Less and Enjoying Food More, both available on iTunes and amazon.com.
I did my master’s practicum working with executives and professionals on how to make a job or career transition — including resume, networking and interviewing skills.
For my doctoral thesis I explored five evidence-based ways that people develop resilience — how to get grip, get back up and go on when someone hurts or harms you.
I also draw on fifteen years of volunteer grief counseling with the Hosparus Living Through Grief program.
I use my diverse background to tailor research-based approaches in a way that is intuitive and innovative — so my clients can attract and build relationships that are good for them, handle difficult people without becoming part of the problem, and spend more time enjoying life and work.
