My clinical philosophies are rooted in the values by which I both live and work. Authenticity, I believe contributes to the development of a trusting and real connection. Who I am in session, is who I am as a person, and the congruency of my own presentation is integral to supporting you to live your life according to your own values and beliefs. I am not here to tell you what to do. I’m here to remind you of the agency you have within yourself to heal from whatever is troubling you; to be the person you know yourself to be. We are a product of our environment; shaped by our experiences and the world as we’ve known it. That doesn’t mean that change isn’t possible. It means that how we feel, behave, and process information, comes from somewhere. It means that whatever is going on for you, probably makes a lot of sense somewhere deep down… even if it doesn’t always feel rational. Together, we can explore the source of what is challenging you. We can investigate why some things may be playing out the way they are. And we can process those experiences in a way that encourages healing, growth, and transformation. This is your journey. Welcome home! — Jane Whitlaw
