Jane Meyers

(LCSW-R)

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 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 47 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 only recently begun to 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.

It's been a short time yet, two weeks since I joined. Already Jane has been a great help to me.

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.

Jane is absolutely amazing. When I don’t have time and forget to check in with her she is quick to message and check in to make sure I’m okay and if there is anything she can help me with.

Jane is wonderful at responding to messages and listening. I have felt very comfortable. I have always hesitated towards counseling and I am glad that I made myself try it. It has been worth it so far. For me, this has been a great way to break the ice into counseling when I wasn't comfortable at the thought of sitting in a room talking one on one. I especially appreciate the different mediums in which we can books sessions and chat. For anyone that is hesitant in trying counseling, I feel this is the best way to start easing into it.

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. She listens/ reads carefully and responds in kind. It's fantastic to have a partner/ coach like Jane in this. I look forward to my continued emotional growth with her guidance.

Jane is like a wonderful light when you are feeling stuck in the dark. She is very receptive when listening your problems and finds various ways to approach and treat issues based on you preferences. I highly recommend her!

I like the choice of counselor because she is very attentive, and she asked questions that made me think about some things. She did not judge me in any way. I am happy with choosing BetterHelp because it has been very helpful so far.

Great!

Written by S.A. on Dec 17, 2017 after counseling with Jane for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Jane is a fantastic therapist. She is extremely knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and clearly very passionate about helping others. I felt comfortable talking about difficult topics with her, and her open minded attitude really made me feel a lot less weird about my anxiety and OCD. Thank you for working with me, Jane!

Jane is sooo nice! She's super knowledgeable in various aspects, and what she doesn't know she will do research on, just for me! She takes time to understand what she needs to, and really offers herself to me in every way.
