Individual, Couple, Family and Group Therapy

Janice Shapiro, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

About Janice

I am a mother of one adult son and married. I have two adult stepchildren who lived with us half the time when they were growing up. Even with all the personal and professional experience I have with families, couples and individuals, I continue to learn and grow from you, my clients. I am passionate about my job, because I believe that emotionally healthy families contribute to a vibrant society. That is why I enjoy working with individuals who come from families, make families and are influenced by families. 


I earned my Masters in Clinical Psychology from John F. Kennedy University. I have worked as a clinician for ten years in Santa Clara County.

Before becoming a Marriage and Family Therapist, I was a classroom teacher in San Jose for many years. As a teacher, I saw the need to work with and understand the entire family in order to be effective with each of my students. If family is to be the foundation of our society, then a healthy family is synonymous with a healthy society.

  • Served on SCV-CAMFT Board as Director of Continuing Education Operations, 2016-2017
