Therapist Jane Rhea Photo

About Me

I am a self-advocate and activist with over ten years personal and professional experience working with adults and children in the Disability Community. I am trained in Social Work and Disability Studies and have an interdiciplinary practice orientation. I call New Orleans home again after a three years in Chicago, and am dedicated to involvement in local and global Disability communities.

As a Coach and Counselor in Queer and Disability communities I understands the specific structural barriers people with diverse identities face. I bring a Neurodiversity and Disability pride perspective to coaching and counseling by sharing knowledge of history, theory, and social models. I believe employment or occupation seeking is a great place to begin exploring any change you want to make in your life. Employment counseling can bring up issues related to anxiety, depression, Autism, ADHD, chronic pain, and other Neurodiversities and Disabilities. I am Queer, Trans, and Non-Binary allied.

Jane is a great therapist. She really listened and encouraged me to try multiple, different activities and practices to help meet my various needs. She is also stern when needed and allowed me to come to certain realizations on my own. I appreciate her and what she's done for me. I would recommend her to anyone in need of this service in a heartbeat.

Jane Rhea is an excellent counselor. I rave about her to everyone in my life, and have recommended Better Health on the basis of how positive my experiences with her have been. I can barely afford this service, but having Jane Rhea as a guiding voice to speak to has gotten me through some big life changes and has helped me live better day to day.
