I believe that gaining insight about a problem is the first step in solving it.
Jane Charnas, DSW, LCSW-C
My practice draws from my experience with a range of therapeutic approaches and strategies that I combine to serve the unique needs of individuals, couples – married or unmarried, heterosexual or LGBT – and families.
Empathy: Change and growth is difficult. People need to know you are with them. I combine this with a supportive challenge to face themselves , others and life’s realities, to believe they can make the changes they want or face the changes that may be difficult.
Action: Many patients have appreciated I am not only a good listener, but I am able to get to the essence of what their issues may be. I believe in giving feedback and asking difficult questions in a compassionate and straightforward way.
I have been a psychotherapist with a broad range of experience and training for many years. I am an Advanced and Certified Imago therapist and trained with Harville Hendrix who has written the best seller “Getting the Love You Want”. I have also trained with Pat Love who has authored “Hot Monogamy”.
