About Dr. Eckart

Janet Eckart photoAs a Liver­more native, it is my plea­sure to serve clients in the Tri-Valley and sur­round­ing areas.

Raised in a family of scientists and engineers but fascinated by people, figuring out what makes humans (not things) tick is endlessly interesting and also very meaningful to me.
