Welcome to BetterHelp! I'm Jane. Congratulations on taking this step toward personal understanding and growth! It takes wisdom to identify that you could benefit from a professional's insight and assistance. It takes even more courage to actually reach out. Thank you for allowing me to be the person you trust.
I'm an LCSW licensed in North Carolina. My education began with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from UNLV. My MSSW came from University of Tennessee. My counseling work began in Memphis, TN and over the years I have worked with a wide variety of people ranging from children to geriatrics. The types of issues I have expertise in is also quite varied. From sexual assault to depression and anxiety to chronic mental illness to hospice, I've done it.
The first thing of importance in counseling is developing a trusting rapport. If you are not comfortable, it's hard to engage and make progress. My general approach to therapy is one of figuring out what fits my client's needs. I don't fit you into my style; I make the style and intervention fit YOU. I’m a firm believer that the success of therapy is not that a therapist “fixes you” or tells you what to do. It is about a relationship focused on discovery and solutions. You are the expert of your life and it is up to you, with my guidance and support, to implement changes that will bring you to a more satisfying place in life. I want YOU to feel the pride of success in overcoming these challenges.
You can do this!! I very much look forward to walking this road with you.
- Stress, Anxiety

I also have experience in Addictions, LGBT, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder, Compassion fatigue, ADHD

I find Jane is able to understand the things that trouble me and responds with warmth, wisdom and humour.
I have really built a good relationship with Jane being my counselor in the last few weeks. She definitely was able to listen to my issues and find ways to help me. She advises, and worksheets were beneficial along with her consistent support. I really valued her expertise.
Jane has helped me so far into my journey to self heal. She is very soft, kind and knowledgeable.
I haven't been a client for very long but Jane has already given me the best help and support when I have needed it. She always responds when I contact her with any issues and offers me support, guidance and encouragement.
Jane really uses our session time productivity and gives us highly applicable exercises.
Jane has been counseling my daughter for a short time but the results so far are absolutely amazing. My daughter has seen other counselors but she’s never been this comfortable or had such a good connection and Jane always gives advice as well as listens. She’s just so great! Highly, highly recommend her!
