Janean has an in-depth approach to eating disorders. She has comprehensive knowledge on the complexity of eating disorders, which has changed my life. Through regularly meeting with Janean, i was able to discover root causes that fueled my eating disorder. Janean provided a safe and nurturing environment that made me feel safe enough to share experiences I had never spoken of before. Her acceptance and whole-hearted, genuine spirit brought out the best in me. I loved working with Janean and feel so blessed to have found her practice.

[Dr. Millard] has been amazingly helpful for my recovery. Even when she provided me with challenges, I always knew she was on my team.
Former Client

I worked with Janean for two years. Janean created a safe place for me to really work on my issues, many of which I had no idea existed. The honest approach she took was crucial to my success. She was also instrumental in getting me the therapy I needed for an eating disorder that spanned twenty years. Working with Janean changed my life. I would highly recommend Janean.

Former Client

Dr. Millard has been an invaluable piece of the puzzle in my recovery and for this I am eternally grateful.

Former Client

Dr. Anderson believes in the value of incorporating evidence-based techniques (e.g. CBT, DBT) into her therapeutic style.  She is her authentic self in therapy, which is to say deeply empathic, insightful, and adept at injecting humor into the most grave situations.  I consult with her often and would highly recommend her specialized skill set for anyone struggling with disordered eating, emotion dysregulation, ADHD, trauma history or general supportive therapy.

While working with Janean as a co-worker and colleague,  I quickly noticed her deeply compassionate heart and her brilliance with knowing how to guide individuals along the path of recovery. I was immediately impressed by her professionalism and skills as a clinician. She has a unique blend of warmth and humor. I strongly recommend Janean, she is a dynamic clinician.

I never thought I would enjoy treatment, but I never dreaded my sessions with Lauren. I feel like my voice has gotten bigger in my life, and it would still be a whisper if it hadn’t been for her. I don’t think I would have come so far in recovery if it wasn’t for her.

Former Client

I have been a colleague of Dr. Anderson for the past 5 years. I can attest that she is very knowledgeable and passionate about eating disorder treatment. As a psychotherapist, she is empathic, caring, and genuine. I highly recommend seeking her services!

I so appreciate Lauren walking on this journey with me.  She challenged and encouraged me, which helped me to keep fighting for recovery even when I thought I couldn’t.  Working with Lauren has been such a gift in my life.

Former Client

Janean is a kind, thoughtful, intelligent, and highly-skilled therapist. Before seeing Janean, I had no experience with psychotherapy. To be honest, I was very nervous about what the experience would hold. From the very first day, Janean was warm and caring. Janean fostered an open and honest environment in which I felt safe and comfortable learning to explore myself. Our work together is of immense value and I can’t recommend her strongly enough.

Former Client

For me it was natural to want to recover on my own. However, I learned that we are not necessarily meant to go it alone; for people can often bring healing in a way different than what we originally thought we needed healing from. Janean helped me look past what I was convinced the problem was that I needed to fix. She gave insight that I would have never been able to think of on my own, nonetheless use to address certain issues. Janean is one of the “people” that really has helped me on the road of recovery and the insight she has given me has helped me at moments when I need it most! I am forever thankful for her involvement in my life, and recovery.

Former Client

Dr. Anderson and her expert team of physiologists are a phenomenal resource to this community. Their passion about providing the best care possible to each and every individual that walks in their door, their collaboration with other members of the treatment team, their mission to provide accessible care, and so much more makes the Colorado Therapy and Assessment Center a safe and supportive environment that I would feel beyond comfortable sending any client to. I highly recommend this team and can attest to the high quality, compassionate care they provide.

It was invaluable to know that someone who was basically a near-stranger could authentically care about me after so little time, and I think was a real key in changing my own beliefs.  I feel lucky to have found her.  Same goes for group as well.

Former Client

I have gotten to know Dr. Anderson as a colleague and friend for the past three years.  As her friend, I leave my conversations with her feeling more self-accepting and inspired to take on new challenges.  As her colleague, I’ve seen her clients have similar experiences in their work with her, learning to be more kind and gentle with themselves while also feeling empowered to make changes in their lives.  Dr. Anderson’s expertise in treating eating disorders, relationship concerns, and trauma has been invaluable to me in my own work with clients.  I recommend her highly!

Dr. Lauren Appio

Licensed Psychologist, St. John's University Center for Counseling and Consultation

I highly recommend Dr. Anderson!  Her empathy, compassion, and skill in helping others is clear in her work.  She will make you laugh, support you, and show great insight in session.
