About Me

I am a solution-focused psychotherapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. My approach is warm and interactive.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

My background is working in community mental health and private practice. This includes being awarded a SEED grant for developing a program for individuals with SPMI transitioning from hospitalization into the community and learning to manage their illness.

Jayne is a very kind and compassionate therapist who will often check on you if you haven’t written in a while. She also gives homework when needed and is knowledgeable about anxiety, depression, and relationship (romantic and platonic) problems. She is very patient and understanding and I always feel like she knows just what to say when I’m having trouble with something and she does all she can to keep me engaged in the conversation.

Written on Sep 17, 2022 after therapy with Jayne for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and relationship issues

Jayne has been great in all areas in my opinion. She made time to listen intently and hear all my explanations about how I viewed my situation. She then would bring up alternative ways of looking at things as well as offer advice to help through some difficult experiences. I would not hesitate to recommend Jayne to anyone looking for assistance and/or advice regarding relationship issues. She was continually very helpful and allowed my relationship to ease back to a better place with some different techniques and methods. Thanks again Jayne !!

Having Jayne as a therapist has been so beneficial to me. I’ve been able to work through a lot of issues without worrying about judgement. I also have a stressful job (police officer) where I’ve seen and had to do things that have profoundly affected me. Knowing that I have someone to talk to if something traumatic happens is invaluable and I think every first responder should consider counseling.

We talk about anything and everything and she understands how to focus on my issues even if it's folded into a jumbled sentence I type her.

I'm able to focus more on myself and worry less about things I can't control. I came here searching for a way to vent and find solutions and she has definitely been able to guide me through.
