Janet Said

Hello and thanks for your interest in USF Counseling!

My name is Janet Said, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. 

A little about me:  I grew up in Georgia and joined the team here at USF in October of 2019.  I’m honored to work with students and feel inspired by your perseverance and resilience.   I had the privilege of working with children, adolescents and families involved with the foster care system for many years, and I’ve brought the same level of commitment and enthusiasm to my work with students during this challenging, transitional phase.  I love to travel in my free time, and enjoy learning about different parts of the world.  I’m also thoroughly enjoying the sunny weather and all of the beaches and water activities Florida has to offer! 

Clinical Interests: My professional interests include family dynamics, relationship challenges, trauma, depression, anxiety, multiculturalism, social justice, and adjustment.

Affiliations & Roles: Member of Committee on Diversity & Inclusion at the Counseling Center
