About Me

Mankind is made of strong stuff; we are resilient and adaptive by nature. Sometimes we forget this, and allow self-doubt to bog us down. I have trained in many tools of the trade over the years, but the most effective strategy I have found in helping others is to help them to find the answers they seek within themselves. Using this approach, with tools from Dialectical, Cognitive, Behavioral, Psychoanalytic, Life-Stage, Systems, Holistic, Biofeedback, and other schools of thought, there is nothing that you cannot overcome. from temporary life challenges to severe mental illness. I have experience across a range of populations: children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families, forensics, geriatrics, residential settings, crisis counseling, and the severely mentally ill. I am currently a behavioral health supervisor in a setting providing mobile services to the seriously mentally ill. I have worked as a Social Worker since 2001 and find my life more enriched with each and every experience.

My name is Jane Meyers, and I am an LCSW-R from Upstate NY. I am 48 years old, have three children (adult). I have been interested in psychology and anything to do with human behavior for as long as I can remember. My first Associate's Degree was from a local community college, and from there I finished my bachelor's degree through an online state university program. I received my Master of Social Work Degree from Marywood University.

I have practice privately on the side, largely to broaden my range of experience with different populations and modalities of therapy. I have long felt that telecounseling will be able to provide services to those who might not otherwise be able to engage with a therapist, so I am very pleased to be able to work in this manner.

I look forward to learning from each and every one of you in our work together.

Written by M.A. on Jan 13, 2022 after therapy with Jane for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, coaching, and compassion fatigue

Jane has been a God send. She helped me through so much from eating disorders, depression, anxiety, big family issues and covid. Plus more but omg did she take it on and help me! Never in my life have I been shown the respect, support and gotten help all at the same time. I'm here for life.

Highly recommended and highly skilled therapist!

There are no words to express how much Jane has helped me. She is a genuine person who cares about even minor details of your life and is always there to offer intelligent perspectives and insights or just listen if you need to rant. She is intelligent, empathetic and personable.

Written by C.A. on Sep 14, 2021 after therapy with Jane for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career difficulties

Jane is smart, knows her stuff, isn't afraid to go through the stuff with you. I'm glad she's on here because honestly, it would have taken a lot of appointments and driving to find someone with her skills and insights and talent, and Betterhelp made it easier to find her. Thank you Jane and BetterHelp.

Jane is an amazing therapist and I would recommend her to anyone looking for support and help with clarity in their life. She is attentive, caring, and very good at asking the right questions which made me think deeper into certain topics I had been avoiding. Ive been to therapy in the past but with Jane I really can connect and feel that I am making major breakthroughs.

Jane is absolutely amazing. I've had several therapists over the years, and Jane is hands down the best I've ever had. She is really helpful and I really appreciate our conversations. She really listens and checks in regularly. She's just terrific.

Written by J.O. on Feb 03, 2021 after therapy with Jane for 9 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety

I've been working with Jane since last April. I had never really dealt with any sort of real anxiety before and, as the world was shutting down due to COVID, I was also very sick with another issue. The stress of not being able to walk, being bedridden, the pandemic, and the incessant 24 hours a day of sirens in NYC just took me beyond a brink. My wife had used Betterhelp (or other services) for years and she recommended I talk to someone about what I was dealing with.

At the time I was having debilitating anxiety attacks that made me feel like I couldn't breath, as if I was having heart-related issues (ultimately sending me to see a cardiologist multiple times), and even resulted in us having to call 911 one evening because I felt like my throat was closing up. Jane worked very closely with me on methods for managing my anxiety with various exercises and processes. She also encouraged me to spend time considering the things that do and don't work for me during my periods of anxiety and to recall those when I am having another attack.

Over the last 10 months, I've progressively gotten better and better and she and I have actually moved on to talk about other things including my marriage and issues with my family. All the while she has been a really great listener, always provides constructive and helpful feedback and gives me good perspectives to consider. I'm sure that one way or another I would have come through the pandemic either way, but I don't think that I would be in the place that I am now without having Jane be there for me throughout the worst of times. I am very grateful for her help and talks over the better part of the last year and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Thanks for everything, Jane!

I have just been with Jane a short time and we have developed an easy and understanding rapport. I appreciate the connectedness right off the bat. She is very understanding of my situation and makes great suggestions. She also asks questions that help me to think things through clearly. I appreciate the thought provoking assignments she sends. I like talk therapy, and have found what I need in Jane, a compassionate heart!

I really appreciated my time working with Jane. She was responsive and always seemed to have a good grasp of my situation. Her advice was good too.

I recommend Jane to others.

Jane's gentle re-approaches remind me that I am never alone with my battles, even when I'm struggling to put my emotions into words.

Jane has really helped me the past few weeks. When I first came to her, I felt really, really alone and like I didn't have anyone who would understand me. But Jane is always there to listen.

Jane offers very quick and attentive advice and keeps up with me, even when I get into the habit of not responding or when I become secluded. She also offers a variety of tools and means of communication so that we can continue making progress.

Written by C.O. on Apr 17, 2018 after therapy with Jane for 2 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

I cannot recommend Jane more highly. As a professional seeking counseling with too much on my plate already, Jane has been exactly what I needed in form and substance. From helping me find perspective as I navigate a new marriage, job, and home, to checking my BS habits that were holding me back, all with the flexibility of the BetterHelp platform. If it were not for Jane and this system I never would have gotten the consistent, responsive help I desperately needed to make real change.

So far, Jane has been exceptionally helpful in empowering me to understand my anxiety and how to begin addressing it. There's a lot of work to do, but I know that I will get better at it.
