Janet (Bayramyan) Generales, LCSW

Welcome to my website! I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with licenses in multiple states, including California (LCSW# 88575), Florida (SW# 16210), South Carolina (LCSW# 15094), Texas (LCSW# 108071), Connecticut (LCSW# 12457) and North Carolina (LCSW#15765). My cultural background is a blend of Russian, Armenian, and American influences, and I strongly believe that culture plays a significant role in our core beliefs, overall wellness, and mental health.

With over eight years of experience as a trauma therapist, I have had the privilege of working with diverse clients across various age groups and backgrounds. It has been a privilege to have individuals of all types of backgrounds share their personal stories with me. I have experience working with individuals with a history of trauma and addictions, couples facing relationship challenges, and individuals experiencing significant life transitions. I approach therapy from a supportive and strengths based perspective, always considering one’s strengths, cultural background, and identity.

While I provide tools to cope using a range of specialties, my ultimate goal is to delve into the core issues and help strengthen your ability to hold your own pain and heal. I believe that everyone possesses a powerful story, and I merely help guide you to creating harmony and inner acceptance. I do not view moments of pain as indicators of brokenness but as opportunities to slow down, gain a deeper understanding, find meaning, and develop more effective coping strategies.

As a certified EMDR and Brainspotting psychotherapist, I specialize in trauma resolution and healing. I am also trained in Attachment Focused EMDR, the Havening Techniques, Internal Family Systems (IFS) level 1, also known as parts work, and other trauma modalities. Through the lens of EMDR and IFS, I assist clients in understanding and processing how trauma has impacted their body, their nervous system, and their ability to feel safe and calm in the world.

My approach to working with clients is collaborative and supportive. I want to assure you that what you bring to the therapy room is not going to be overwhelming or intimidating to me. I am committed to honoring and holding space for your experiences and all of the different parts of you. Together, we will work towards finding relief and creating the life you desire.

In addition to my clinical practice, I am an active member of the EMDR International Association, Brainspotting Inc., and the Internal Family Systems Institute. I hold a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California and completed my Bachelor’s degree at California State University Northridge.

My private practice caters to individuals and couples in person in Encino, CA or virtually online for anyone residing in CA, FL, SC, TX, CT, NC. Thank you for visiting my website, and I look forward to accompanying you on your path towards healing and growth.
