Professional statement

Jane Mizrahi is a licensed social worker and founder of GroupsWorks, offering individual, family, and group therapy sessions in Providence, RI. Jane works with teenagers, young adults and college students, adults, and families, and she enjoys bearing witness to her clients' success as they walk their healing journey. Jane has expertise in trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, and depression. She invites her clients to engage in ongoing self-evaluation tools in order to keep therapy moving forward.

Jane uses a holistic approach, drawing from dialectical behavioral therapy, existentialism, mindfulness, internal family systems, and body-based psychotherapies.

Jane earned her Masters in Social Work from Rhode Island College in 2011 and previously served as the Clinical Director of Residential Services at Child & Family Services. Jane found her passion for helping others heal after experiencing great loss in her own life and has since dedicated herself to supporting clients as they heal. Her approach is flexible and dynamic in order to best meet the needs of her clients, and she often encourages clients to incorporate creative and body-based activities into their healing process. Jane trains in somatic psychotherapies in order to further support clients who are holding trauma in the body. She emphasizes the power of hope, presence, self-compassion, and the mind-body connection.

Client testimonials

"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."
