"Jane, as a facilitator, brought a joyful spirit to every group that I have been privileged to be involved in with her. I, along with many of my peers in a short-term psychiatric facility, always looked forward to the days when we knew Jane would be on staff. The groups she facilitated were so varied and based on the needs of the clients at any given time. Some groups Jane facilitated were dynamic and empowering while others were soothing and restful. Jane has a natural talent for seeing the needs of individuals and groups and being able to adapt to those needs quickly. She is a perfect combination of enthusiasm and gentleness. When I learned that Jane would be offering group programs in a private practice I signed up immediately. I knew that her passion for individuals’ personal healing and journeys would be of great benefit to me as I continue in my recovery."- Female client • July 2016
