Jane's Story

Jane PortraitQUALIFICATIONS:

How does a business background “fit” with Marriage and Family Therapy? Very well! For 25 years, I have conducted thousands of interviews with respondents in both group and one-on-one settings. In so doing, I have developed excellent relational skills – establishing rapport quickly, listening carefully (for what is spoken and left unspoken), encouraging trust and sharing, empathizing with a wide spectrum of emotions, and helping people articulate their thoughts and feelings.
