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 competent counselor. While I did not expect her to solve all of my problems, she gave me a chance to vent to someone who knew where I was coming from. She pointed my thinking in a new direction which was very welcome. Judie

Jayne has been wonderful. I've never spoken to a counselor before, but her wise words and kind manner has allowed me to process and analyze my situation and actions rationally, without feeling guilty or shamed.

Jayne always had a very down-to-earth approach that put me at ease and helped me to open up and get out what is inside. She listened intently to everything that I said and responded in a caring and thorough way. It was amazing how quickly Jayne could help me to feel 'rehabilitated' by striking the perfect balance between providing an open space for me to vent, along with good advice where it was called for.

Written by B.O on Oct 28, 2015 after counseling with Jayne for 1 month

I've been writing back and forth with Jayne for almost 2 months now, she is a great "listener" and has very good advice on the issues I'm having. 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 feel like I'm in a much better place than from the day I started on this site. She helps me sleep well at night and shows me how to push aside my worries to a specific time so I can actually focus on them without it interrupting my daily activities. 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.

Written by C.H on Oct 07, 2015 after counseling with Jayne for 1 month

Jayne is wonderful! I would highly recommend her to anyone!! She is an awesome counselor and it's so nice to know that I have someone to talk to whenever I need to, having our sessions online is very convenient for a young mother on the go.
