Message from Jayne:
“Life is a journey that can sometimes seem overwhelming with no supports. You feel stuck in patterns or behaviors, wanting new ways to meet life's difficulties. Feelings of powerlessness and vulnerability understandably lead to distress, impacting relationships you have with your partner, children, friends or coworkers. I believe we live in, and are a product of our relationships - not only with others, but with our own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is my belief that to operate authentically in connection to those around us, we must work to strengthen the most integral relationship we hold; the one we have with ourselves.
Together we will discover new ways of navigating life and engaging with yourself and others; focusing on building bridges, not walls, restoring trust and inviting exploration. It is a huge decision to begin therapy - often quite intimidating. I will attempt to make this step forward into counseling as smooth as possible for you.
Certified in trauma, disaster and crisis, I tailor my therapeutic approach to the individual's specific needs and preferences. My therapy orientation is eclectic, utilizing a variety of treatment approaches, including interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral, client-centered, insight-oriented, and solution-focused, with my foundation always strengths based.”
Jewish Family services (JFS) provides friendly visiting services to increase socialization in the senior population. Friendly visiting is a free program of matching a volunteer with a senior to spend time together during the week. This can include different activities together such as playing cards, watching a movie, or reading together. Volunteers are also meant to provide further access to services within Somerset through JFS.
