present and former clients of Janice Leiper speak of her, words like commitment, compassion, diverse skill set, safety, sensitivity
and confidentiality are heard time and time again. It comes as no surprise to those who know her, her background and her life
A native of Pittsburgh, Janice earned her degree in Law Enforcement and Corrections at Penn State,
whereupon she immediately took a position with the Board of Probation and Parole at Muncy Prison. After two years she advanced
to become Associate Director of the Female Offenders program of Western Pennsylvania in Pittsburgh while pursuing and obtaining
a Master of Social Work degree at the University of Pittsburgh. While working in the penal system, where the facts are often
elusive, Janice further honed her intuitive and perceptive skills first learned in the urban environs of her upbringing.
Armed with her MSW she then took a position with the Regional Alcohol Program of South Hills Health System, followed
by employment as a counselor in the Employee Assistance Program at Weirton Steel Corporation, an early pioneer in corporate
EAP programs. The combination of addictions counseling and the need for fast, accurate diagnosis and referral of distressed
employees in a corporate environment proved a potent addition to her growing capabilities.
Marriage and two subsequent
relocations resulted in a brief position with an EAP consulting company in Philadelphia and culminated with a position as
National Director of the new Health Advisory Program at American International Group at their headquarters in Manhattan, reporting
to the Medical Director. After three years of the frenzy of Wall Street Janice opted for a more sylvan lifestyle and decided
to begin what has become a private psychotherapy practice of over twenty years in Stamford, CT, with special expertise in
marital and couples relationship therapy.
All through these years and up to the present Janice has continued to
refine and broaden her skills, not only through the weight of experience gained from dealing with innumerable people in difficulty
but through continuing education, experimentation and accreditation with advanced therapeutic techniques such as Imago Relationship
Therapy, EMDR and others. It is her diverse, lifetime experience providing fast, accurate assessment of circumstances followed
by results oriented intervention and treatment in concert with her trademark down-to-earth style that earns her the accolades
that come far and wide from clients and colleagues alike.
