Jane’s work is guided by decades of clinical experience in a variety of settings. Her passionate knowing that the body will reveal what it requires to heal guides her work as a somatic therapist.

Weaving together complementary modalities, Jane specializes in helping people who have been impacted by life-altering events. Her work with clients embodies a depth of knowledge that encompasses attachment theory, early developmental trauma, and relationship building. She offers options for restoration by helping clients access the inherent resilience in their systems and assists people in becoming compassionate witnesses to their own journey. Each client or group session offers a path to healing in a safe and supported environment. We are meant to overcome adversity, and we don’t have to do it alone.

She has volunteered at The North Shore Women’s Centre and advocates for prevention strategies for interpersonal violence, recovery and health parity for mental health.
In her spare time, she can be found exploring spaces by the ocean or tromping through forests. Being in the natural world supports her as well as sharing good food and wine with friends and family. As a lifelong learner, her curiosity and ongoing personal and professional training support her individual and client growth. On the journey of healing, one can only take their clients to the places that they themselves have explored.
