As a licensed psychologist in private practice in San Juan Capistrano,
she assists individuals and groups to overcome obstacles to success and
reach higher levels of well-being. Her treatment approach is grounded
in research utilizing a cognitive behavioral approach in psychotherapy.

Dr. Nekoranec’s leadership abilities range from in-depth evaluation
of problems in organizations on both an individual and group level to
working in collaboration with the executive in the selection of solution
design. Her approach is rooted in the idea that evaluation drives the
identification of issues, provides data for the design of a solution,
the effect of change, and the possibility of emerging issues for consideration
which occur on personal and group levels. Assessment is accomplished through
active observation, interviews, and testing with a focus on continuous
evaluation throughout the process of implementation and execution, and
the follow-up phases of the project.
Janise establishes rapport easily and works in collaboration with executives
throughout each phase of the project. The initial focus is on working
closely together to identify issues of concern which is followed by an
assessment process that results in a design solution for the executive’s
consideration. Once a design solution has been selected, the execution
of the plan and follow-up evaluations are done with a continued collaborative
approach to ensure the ultimate success of the project.
Janise speaks on assessments, well-being and stress management, and communication.
Her hobbies include reading, writing, backpacking especially in the Sierras,
traveling, working out and walking, photography, cooking, and spending
time with family and friends.
