About this pro

I have a Masters degree in Counseling and I am a Certified addictions Professional with 20+ years of experience working in the field of Addiction and Behavioral Health Services. I have a passion for working with people who just want to feel better and learn coping skills in dealing with anxiety and depression.  Over the years I have provided therapeutic services for veterans, adolescents, and adults with substance use and behavioral health disorders. I believe in using a strengths-based approach in treating your individualized needs. I utilize a variety of holistic and evidence-based therapy approaches with an emphasis on solution focused-therapy, trauma informed care, and cognitive behavioral therapy.  My passion is to help you uncover your true potential and live the life you desire.  I specialize in addictions treatment and have been a recovery coach to many individuals.  I also have extensive experience in working with families that are struggling with a family member who is using substances.  I believe that mental health is imperative to live a heathy lifestyle and know from experience that self care is necessary to prevent other problems such as medical issues.  Sometimes just talking to someone and trying some new approaches in coping with stress can be very beneficial. 

I am currently providing individual counseling online through Zoom or by phone.  The first session will consist of an assessment and getting to know you.  Together we can establish your goals of counseling and develop a treatment plan. Sessions are 50 minutes at $59 per session, and the  frequency of sessions is up to you.  I do not work with insurance companies.  All sessions are self pay through Paypal or cash app and payment is required prior to the session.  However the first session will be at no charge for 20 minutes.  All sessions are strictly confidential and notes will be minimal so you can be assured that your confidentiality is protected. I have found that a lot of people just want to talk to someone and not feel judged.  We all have struggles in managing life stressors and sometimes we just need someone to listen and to have a little support and guidance.

    Jane is AMAZING and caring! I had physical, emotional, sexual trauma that led me into a life of substance abuse for 20+ years. I went to multiple rehabilitation programs, and would have at most 2 months of sobriety before another relapse. Having her as my therapist, was a Gift from God! She showed me strength when all I wanted to do was give up, becausei felt I didn't deserve to be happy. She kept it "real" with me and would call me out on my "crap' I would try to feed her. She fought for me, when everyone else gave up on me. Because of her I can look in the mirror and think to myself, I am beautiful and worth every bit of happiness that my heart desires. Because of heart, soul, passion and compassion for other people, I write with a full heart that I will be coming up on a year of sobriety! She helped me achieve something I thought was lost forever, my 3 beautiful kids. Everything I lost, she pushed me harder to fight for. I'm a good mom, who bad choices. I now have the skills, coping techniques and, self care for myself, to be successful when I am having a "off'day". Please if you or a family member have, addiction, trauma or just need a friendly ear to listen. Take a chance with her, like she did me. You will be do happy that you did. 💜💪💜

    Jane is an amazing counselor. She works hard and always has her client's best interest as her priority. Her experience shines through as she brains storms each encounter as the unique situation it is. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
