Jayn believes that therapy does not have to be an arduous process. It should be fun when it's filled with an eagerness on the clients' end to get over the hurdle that they are currently facing, so that they can go back out there and enjoy the life that they were born to live.

Therapy is extremely focused and in most cases, clients are able to discharge from therapy within 3-6 months, especially if it's a life transition problem. Some clients are in treatment for a longer period, due to severe trauma, abuse or mental health symptoms, attached to the roadblocks faced.

There are clients who seek therapy not because they necessarily have something that they need to work on;
They like the idea of going to a neutral place on a weekly basis and unloading i.e. to get things out of their system. They like brainstorming on ideas, listening to themselves think verbally, having the therapist play devil's advocate, working on strategies, life skills and looking at repetitive behavioral patterns.
Other clients report that they enjoy an on-going weekly sessions, as it gives them a place to take care of their emotional needs, so that they do not burden their friends and family members with issues. This then allows them to be there emotionally and physically for their loved ones.

Jayn's strengths include her years of experience practicing her skills and training as a psychotherapist in many different clinical settings, as well as her caring, empathic and compassionate nature.  She is humbled and honored by the privilege of being invited into her clients’ inner worlds and being able to guide them on their journey of healing and personal growth. She does this with tremendous respect and acceptance.

Jayn’s style is to be a supportive and collaborative partner with her clients to help them use their own self-leadership to find creative and lasting solutions to life's challenges. This stems from her deep belief that people possess an amazing innate ability to heal and find their own answers.  However, sometimes people may be stuck in old patterns or may have a difficult time discovering new ways of thinking or being.

With sensitivity, compassion and a strength-based / solution focused, holistic approach, she guides her clients to find and utilize their own inner wisdom to get unstuck and achieve their life goals. With her skillful guidance she helps people to embody their emotions and to truly work with the physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of their issues.
