Military Community Counseling
We all have battles to fight. And it’s often in those battles that we are most alive: it’s on the frontlines of our lives that we earn wisdom, create joy, forge friendships, discover happiness, find love, and do purposeful work.
– Eric Greitens
Military families experience specific challenges
As a Military Family Life Consultant, I assisted military personnel and their families on bases on the mainland US, Hawaii and Europe. With these experiences, I deepened my skills to address the unique challenges and problems that this community faces in their work and personal lives.
Being the daughter of a Marine Colonel myself
Since I grew up as a military dependent, the daughter of a Marine Colonel, I know from my own experience the unique benefits, problems and challenges that military service members and their families face. That include deployments, frequent moves, emotional effects on partners and children, separation from friends and family, finding new supports and reinventing your life over again.
Working together to build the skills, strengths, and resources
I have the knowledge, experience and understanding of military life to support and guide you to find the causes of your distress and to work through them. There is a camaraderie and close-knit community of courageous individuals and the families that support them and when overwhelmed by the demands of this work and life and its effects on marriage and families, there can be loneliness and isolation, depression, PTSD and substance abuse, as well.
We will work together to build the specific skills, strengths, and resources that will help you create a meaningful career and satisfying friendships and family life.

She is very personable and empathetic…
“Jane has been an amazing therapist to work with. She provides a comfortable environment that allows you to open up and feel heard. She is also very personable and empathetic which makes you feel at ease during difficult conversations. I appreciate her challenging my thoughts to get me out of my old thinking pattern. She has been so flexible with scheduling and truly makes it easy to find the right time to meet. I highly recommend Jane!”
