Janelle Von Storch, Licensed Professional Counselor
I am a licensed professional counselor in North Little Rock. I work individuals of all ages, but specialize in working with children and adolescents who have experienced trauma and disruption in their lives. I approach therapy from a family systems perspective but also use Cognitive Behavioral strategies as a part of the therapeutic process.
