About My Practice Jane Parson- Fein

About Jane

I do psychotherapy and hypnosis with individuals, couples, families, and groups. Each of us is unique, and each of us has our own unique pain or unique desire to create change in our lives. As a therapist, I work with you to understand the language of your unique hurts and/or goals, whether physical or emotional, having to do with relationships, family, work, or some kind of crisis.

I have spent many years studying different approaches to psychotherapy, including four masters with whom I personally studied: Milton Erickson, renowned medical hypnotist; Virginia Satir, world famous family therapist; Moshe Feldenkrais, whose institute for body mind are world wide; Kay Thompson, known for her hypnotic work with hemophiliac patients. I also have studied Transactional analysis, Gestalt Therapy, EMDR, EFT, and other systems. I have a background in Freudian psychoanalysis.

When someone first walks into my office, I begin to work with whatever system or blend of systems could truly help them, learning to speak their language and listen with my heart.

Over the years I have worked with many different diagnosis:

. Anorexia/Bulimia
. Anxiety
. Cancer
. Childbirth
. Depression
. Dissociation
. Habit Problems
. IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)
. Fertility/IVF
