Professional statement

Jane Mizrahi is a licensed social worker and founder of GroupsWorks, offering individual 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 cognitive behavioral therapy, existentialism, mindfulness, 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 is also training 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.


Message to clients

People come into therapy when they are ill at ease, when they're not feeling happy or hopeful. My goal is to help you ground in the present moment and experience self-compassion throughout your mind and body. I want you to let go of whatever guilt and shame may be living with and move forward with a new story line, filled with strength, freedom, and happiness.
