About Me

Janelle Campbell is the founder and therapist at her clinic, Anxiety and Trauma Therapy located in Scarborough Ontario. Janelle will tell you that she didn’t choose counselling, counselling chose her. From a young age, Janelle wanted to be in the helping profession. Her lived experience growing up in community housing has taught her resilience, strength, and determination. She started her career working as a youth program leader for the City of Toronto, she then worked with dual diagnosed adults, ABI clients, and adults with mental illnesses. Not to mention, Janelle volunteered with the Scarborough Children’s Aid Society in their Beautiful Hair Beautiful Me Program, and their Child Access Program. Janelle has 20 years experience in the social service and mental health sector. While completing her masters degree in social work at Wilfrid Laurier University, Janelle's practicum consisted of her working as a community mental health social worker at Durham Mental Health Services and she also worked as a cognitive behavioural therapist at the Scarborough Hospital. Upon graduation, Janelle worked at Ontario Shores as a cognitive behavioural therapist while simultaneously running her private practice. In 2022, Janelle’s passion for teaching and education came to fruition when she worked as a sessional lecturer teaching masters of social work students in the social justice stream at the University of Toronto. She also facilitated workshops on anti-Black racism at SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health Learning Institute. Janelle is committed to providing a culturally sensitive approach to her clients and the community. Her goal is to reduce the stigma of mental illness through empowerment, safety, and providing a voice to those who are often silenced. Janelle specializes in providing treatment to adults with unresolved childhood trauma. Healing from our past experience is important to having a healthy quality of life in the present. 

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” ~ Nelson Mandela
