About Me

Janice A. Moran

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor specializing in individual, couples and family therapy. I contract with Agape Psych Services in Arlington, TX.

I am pursuing a PhD in Family Therapy at Texas Woman's University. I am currently serving as a private practitioner, working with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are working with families who have children with special needs.

In addition to being a prominent relationship therapist, I have presented at conferences and to general audiences speaking on the topic of including family systems counseling styles within service provision models for children with disabilities.

I am an interactive, family systems therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.

You are a highly driven and ambitious person who is currently overwhelmed, stressed out, and unsure of yourself and of how to make change. While you work so hard to succeed at all you do and help those around you, you seem to have lost yourself in the process.

It’s become hard to keep trying to “fake it until you make it.” It’s exhausting to show an image to the world that doesn’t match who you are and how you feel. In fact, you often wonder who you are and who you’re supposed to become. You don’t feel like you’re being real with anyone, much less yourself.

You soak up all the advice from others about who you should be and what you should do, but you feel like you’re playing a losing game of tug-of-war. You even give others credit for your accomplishments.

You’re unable to tune out all of the noise and focus on what you need and want. These days, your inner voice only criticizes your every move and fills you with self-doubt. However, you have the strength and ability to change. You can learn how to put on your own oxygen mask first while having the energy to help others, find your authenticity, and respectfully express yourself in a way that ensures your needs are met.

I’m here to tell you, you can rediscover your unique sense of identity and independence. Just because you’re anxious, burned out, and functioning in survival mode now doesn’t mean that you can’t live a peaceful, fulfilled, and satisfied life.

Hi! I’m Janice, owner and founder of Janice Moran Counseling, PLLC. There’s one thing I know deep in my soul. Every person has a right to authentically express themselves while feeling valued and accepted for who they are.

Each of us has so many unique gifts to give to the world. Sometimes we get so caught up in feeling like we have something to prove, that we forget the importance of accepting all the various parts of ourselves.

It often feels like our success and sense of who we are depends on validation from others and what they think, rather than trusting our gut. We often compare ourselves to others, rather than embracing our own ideas of who we are and how we define success.

This doesn’t mean you can’t learn to simultaneously embrace your authenticity while valuing and respecting the needs and opinions of others. It simply means you need to understand the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, learn how to balance thinking and feeling, and unroot deep-seeded patterns, so you can create, set, and stick to healthy boundaries.

The truth is, letting go of long-standing ideas of how life “should be” is hard. It’s natural to be hesitant when you’re changing how you’ve always done and thought about things. Even though you feel insecure now, it doesn’t have to keep you from being more confident. Instead, you can get to know who you are at your core, learn to listen to your own physical, mental, and emotional cues, and start trusting yourself.

That’s where I come in. As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Rehabilitation Counselor with training in family systems therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and adjustment to blindness, I understand the importance of self-care and balance. I am working toward the completion of a PhD in Family Therapy at Texas Woman’s University. Before going into private practice, I worked for the state of TX in the Division for Blind Services for twelve years. During that time, I served as a Vocational Rehabilitation Teacher, Transition Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor, and Blind Children’s Specialist.

I provide therapy exclusively through telehealth, which means I can serve clients across the state of TX. Sessions are conducted by phone, which further breaks down barriers to access.

Here at Janice Moran Counseling, PLLC, I help clients go from doubtful and insecure to confident and assertive. As someone who has been blind since birth, I know what it’s like to be immediately judged by others based on their perceptions of blindness before they even get to know me. I know from personal experience what it’s like to be completely burned out and have no energy left at the end of the day. I totally get having racing thoughts and sleepless nights due to constant worry over either a particular situation or what others might be thinking or saying.

I’m here to tell you that the effort you put into working on yourself is some of the most rewarding work you’ll ever do. By allowing yourself to stretch, grow, and change, you will begin to realize that your strength and power comes from within you, make useful meaning of your experiences, and redefine yourself in a way that makes you feel comfortable in your own skin.

My mission is to provide therapy to help people work toward creating, setting, and sticking to boundaries, embracing self-care, redefining familial roles, reducing anxiety, achieving balance, finding their voices, discovering their resilience, and confidently living their lives.

I am passionate about reducing stigma and breaking down barriers around blindness/vision loss and mental health.

I am dedicated to providing high-quality care by tailoring therapy to meet each client’s needs.
