Janet Spaulding, LMFT

Janet Spaulding, LMFT and Behavioral Clinician, works with a broad spectrum of presenting problems, specializing in the treatment of anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and adult, adolescent, child, and family therapeutic issues. As an integrative therapist, she draws primarily from ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy), Family Systems, Virginia Satir, and mindfulness-based approaches.

Janet has been a member of the Mercy Behavioral Team in Sacramento since May 2017. Previously, she served as Clinical Supervisor, Clinician, and Group Facilitator (Family Support Group / IOP Attendee’s process group) in Sage Anxiety Treatment Program — an Intensive Outpatient Program — from 2011 to 2016. Janet’s prior clinical experience includes child therapy/sandtray therapy training at Phillips’ Graduate Institute, clinical training in El Camino Hospital’s Chemical Dependency Treatment Program, and over 15 years of private practice.

When she's not at one of her offices, you could find Janet with her nose in a good book, practicing her ukulele, front-and-center in the worn, red velvet seats at Tower Theater in Sacramento (devouring the latest foreign film over a small unbuttered popcorn and Peanut M&M’S), attending local art exhibits, sampling diverse cuisine from a “Slow Food” perspective, hanging out with her two amazing (nearly grown) sons, or hiking around the Auburn/Sierra Nevada Foothills.
