Jana Holland is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She earned her Master’s degree from North Dakota State University in child development and family science, with an emphasis in marriage and family therapy. Jana worked in a community mental health center in adult rehabilitative mental health services for two years prior to becoming licensed to practice therapy in the state of Minnesota. During that time, she developed a day treatment program for adults struggling with mood, anxiety, and personality disorders. Jana gained valuable experience in treating borderline personality disorder and helping clients learn about and eventually begin to form healthy relational boundaries.
Upon licensure, Jana was offered a position within the clinic as an outpatient therapist, treating a diverse population of clients. She worked with children and adolescents with issues related to depression, anxiety, ADHD, ASD, and ODD, collaborating with case managers, psychiatrists, social workers, and school staff in an effort to help her clients succeed. She also worked with many adult clients who struggled with chemical dependency and mood disorders, anxiety disorders, relational/marital issues, and war-related trauma.
Over the last five years Jana lived in Munich, Germany with her husband and daughter. She worked with children in an academic setting, which was extremely rewarding and ignited a passion for continuing to work with children. Jana’s personal values of family, open communication, and honesty guide her interests in helping families live out their own values and beliefs in their everyday lives.
Jana’s areas of specialty include anxiety and depression, stress management, couples’ and family therapy, autism spectrum disorders, parenting education and support, and school-related stress management. She utilizes mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches to assist clients in managing their daily symptoms while staying present in the things they enjoyed in life. She is also trained in relational accountability, which is a great theoretical guide in working with relational and family issues.
