Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly. – Anonymous

If a caterpillar is going to function in the world as a butterfly, it must undergo metamorphosis. Without change, survival would be impossible – this is true not only for the caterpillar, but for people as well. Jayne acknowledges that making life transitions and changes may seem overwhelming, scary, and difficult, yet they can also be exciting. Using a blend of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy strategies, Jayne desires to assist clients in making life changes to improve their overall functioning. Inner changes in one’s thoughts and feelings, can lead to significant transformations in outward behavior and daily life.

Jayne’s Story

In her journey to become a therapist, Jayne completed a master’s degree in Social Work at Loma Linda University. She then went to work for Child Protective Services, as she pursued Clinical Licensure. Her areas of experience include: child welfare, adoptions, substance abuse, depression and anxiety disorders.

Jayne spent over three decades in the Los Angeles area, before making a significant life change and relocating to the rural outskirts of Auburn. After living her entire life in the city, she welcomes the challenge of learning about how to live the “rural life” – brush clearance, burn piles, septic systems, being “on propane” and using a wood burning stove. She also enjoys spending time outdoors, gardening, and making things with her hands.
