Hello, My name is Jan and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. I have been licensed for over 25 years. After my children were in school fulltime, I decided to get a job. I was I had a degree in teaching but felt that I wanted to teach special education. To do that I went back to school and got a masters in learning disabilities. I loved the job and loved the children but felt that I was missing some information. Many of the children that I taught also had emotional concerns. it was not uncommon for them to struggle in school for several years before they were diagnosed. That often left them with a very low sense of themselves. I wanted to help. I went back to school and got a masters degree in counseling. I loved it so much that I stayed and also got a specialists degree in counseling. All of that led me to leaving teaching and taking a job as a school counselor. I was so fortunate to stay in the school system. In addition to that job, I saw some private clients over the years. Once I retired from the school system , I built my private practice. It has been a few years since I have seen clients but find that I really miss it. This is a perfect solution.
I am pretty easy to get to know. Spending time with someone and helping them find ways to be more comfortable in their lives is such a great adventure. showing people strengths that they didn't even know they had is so satisfying for everyone. If I am your counselor or not, I wish you well on your journey!

I very much look forward to my sessions with Jan, even though they can be tough calls. Jan is supportive and direct. I appreciate that she listens with compassion but is able to offer wisdom and challenges me to see the truth I may not always see.
Incredible helpful with untangling my negative thoughts and replacing them with healthy affirmations and feelings.
Jan has been a really great help in all sessions and really opened up my perspective on the limitations that I put on myself and that has helped me to try and change my mindset and work on myself in a positive way. She talks to you in the most lovely kindhearted way all while being realistic and getting the point across. She really takes on board what you’re saying and gets the situation that you’re in.
Jan is extremely insightful and inspiring. I have had therapy on and off for almost ten years and has helped me more than any other therapist. Very grateful!!
I almost gave up looking for the right therapist and then I found Jan! She’s a great listener and is wonderful at understanding my concerns and giving me helpful tools to use in life.
