About me

Hi! My name is Jane Perkins.

I am a state-licensed counselor who always counsels with her Bible open. The goal of counseling with me will be to discover the "secrets" of scripture that are written plainly for our instruction. When answers for our situations can be lifted off the pages of God's love letter, it is energizingly freeing! The Bible is enough.

I provide Online / Virtual Christian Counseling for Illinois and Missouri Residences. See my website: www. A r e Y o u R e a d y C o u n s e l i n g

I’m passionate about helping people find purpose-filled lives. Many have no idea where to start looking and instead get caught up in what Instagram, Facebook, or TikTok says about creating dreams, then even begin to pursue those dreams. Pursuing and unlocking who you are is attainable!

How I Approach Counseling: I am a solution-focused therapist utilizing short-term goals to help clients create a plan to succeed rather than dwell on the problem. I vow not to misuse your time in reaching these set goals. The implementation of Cognitive Behavioral techniques and Mindfulness approaches in conjunction with Biblical resources provides insight into human nature and emotions to improve relationships and personal struggles, all while encouraging a deeper relationship with God. In the Bible, God gives specific instructions on how to positively restructure patterns of cognitive distortions and encourage behavior change so that we can experience peace of mind and joy. You will play a big part in the healing process, as homework derived from scripture is given after almost every session.

I work with clients who have fear and anxiety, struggle with addiction, are sad, have low self-esteem, desire to seek a new direction in their career, and are searching to find their specific purpose in life. If you choose to proceed in therapy with me, I vow not to misuse your time in reaching set goals.

Treatment of mental health and other psychological concerns includes Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual health.

Physical Health: Physical health plays a significant role in mental well-being. Regular exercise, proper nutrition, adequate sleep, and good physical health can positively affect mood, stress, and cognitive functioning.

Emotional Health: Understanding and addressing emotions are crucial in mental health treatment. This involves developing emotional intelligence, coping skills, and communication abilities. Therapy will focus on helping you navigate and manage your emotions effectively.

Spiritual Health: Spirituality is knowing there is something out there greater than ourselves. Spirituality is why connecting with God the Creator is essential to mental health and coping with life's challenges. This can include engaging in religious practices, meditative prayer, meditation on scripture, and exploring beliefs and values.

Integrating these three components can complement traditional therapeutic approaches and lead to a more comprehensive and effective treatment plan for mental health concerns. It's important to note that individuals may prioritize these aspects differently based on their unique needs, cultural backgrounds, and belief systems. Hence, as a mental health professional, I often adopt a personalized approach to treatment.

Jane is an incredible therapist. She exudes compassion, wisdom, and insight to guide her client through their struggles. Using a faith-based approach, she reminds clients of the promises of God, while implementing sound therapeutic techniques. As someone who chronically quits therapy, I can say with confidence Jane is the best I have ever come across and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their mental, spiritual, and emotional health.

Jane has been an answer to prayer. I have been dealing with depression, anxiety, and loneliness but most of all feeling so far away from the Church. I needed someone to listen to and guide me by pointing me to the Bible but also showing me God's love through compassion.

Jane was truly a GOD SEND! She helped me through literally the hardest emotional experience I have ever faced with such love, understanding, and grace. I felt that I could be open without judgment yet she has a sweet subtle way of being direct in a way that doesn’t offend you, but encourages you. I couldn’t be more thankful for God causing our paths to cross. I have bragged on her to all of my friends and truly look forward to connecting with her in the future if needed. Additionally, the presence of the Lord was ever present in our sessions in such an undeniable way. I can honestly say Jane is the best therapist I have encountered thus far. Blessings on blessing to you Jane!!!
