Robert Janes, LMHC: DMHS Free Therapy & Wellness Spanish Coordinator
Hello, I’m a bilingual, bicultural male-identified therapist with over a decade of experience in school-based services. My journey is deeply rooted in exploring the spaces between cultures, people, and perceptions.
Through my own vulnerabilities and triumphs, I’ve come to understand that shared experiences can be powerful tools for healing. I’m here to listen, relate, and walk alongside you on your path.
With credentials as a licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), I blend my academic background from the University of Washington and Seattle University with postgraduate training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.
Outside of therapy, I’m an amateur photographer, woodworking enthusiast, and climbing aficionado.
