About Jane

My entire career has been in the field of health and wellness. I came to an understanding of the field of mind/body medicine after being diagnosed with breast cancer 28 years ago. Initially, my therapist taught me to use guided imagery to stop the side effects of chemotherapy. Through the imagery process and self-hypnosis, I came to recognize the perceptions I had about the cancer, my treatment and life that were barriers to being well again. I identified the steps to improve my health and thrive. The experience was profoundly helpful to me. My family and others noticed how much better I tolerated treatment. I had more energy, a more positive attitude and greater empowerment.

I believe the answers to many of our challenges are within us. Guided Imagery and self-hypnosis helped me: Connect with my inner strength, wisdom and other inner resources, recognize the lifestyle changes I needed to make to be well again, move forward, and find greater meaning and purpose for my life. I was able to take the best of what medical science and technology had to offer and the best of what I had to offer to more effectively deal with cancer and achieve the best possible outcome. I knew I wanted to help others connect with their inner resources to learn effective ways to help themselves be well too.

Throughout life, we face health and life challenges. I believe they are opportunities for healing and personal growth. If you want to move through your experiences with empowerment, strength and wisdom, I welcome the opportunity to work with you.
