I have grown so much, I don’t even recognize myself. I am finally able to do the things I love to do. (Traveling, taking some college courses, swimming, hiking the mountains, more traveling, being a friend/mentor to those in recovery, and even more traveling!)
I’ll never forget how you told me that my recovery is my most important job. I took that literally and spent hours a day for weeks, months, and years journaling, reading, seeking courses/counselors.
And now, I am reaping the rewards.
Jane, you were there for me. You were always so accepting, so compassionate with me. You made a difference in my world. Even though I haven’t seen you in years, I always carried with me the story of the FisherWoman. And I wanted to tell you I still hear your voice, and I want you to be proud of me. I have unhooked those fish and I am being set free.
Over the past several years, Jane Plattner has provided me with the tools, the insight, the knowledge, and the motivation to totally change my mode of thinking and handling stressful situations in a productive and peaceful manner. She has been the one stable and reliable aspect in many turbulent professional and personal upheavals. Through her use of CBT, DBT, tapping, and other techniques, she has provided me with the ability to totally analyze every thing that happens to me and everything that occurs in life in a new and positive perspective. Whether it is using my “wise mind,” simply sitting back and being a “fly on the wall,” or just engaging in “radical acceptance” of what occurs in life and just dealing with it, there has been a huge change in my physical and emotional health, my mood, my relationships, my perspective on life (now viewing everything as “half full”), and my outlook on the future and my acceptance of my past. I recommend Jane to anyone and everyone whom I encounter. Regardless of what you are going through in life, and all of us experience life’s roller-coaster rides, Jane will be there with a caring, compassionate, and yet firm approach. In addition to recognizing that you have a constant support with Jane, you also realize that she will hold you accountable for doing your work between sessions – which makes all of the difference in the world. I am a totally changed man thanks to Jane Plattner and my family, friends, and colleagues notice that each and every day.
Jane excels at finding the right approach for each client which is essential as we are all unique. She is very easy to talk with and invested in your well being. With her guidance, a weight has been lifted off my shoulders that I have been carrying around since my childhood. I wish I done this years ago.
I found Jane when I had a lot of changes going on in my life. I was very confused and unsure of where to go, what to do, and whether or not I was doing anything right. Jane provided a safe, unbiased outlet for my thoughts and fears, as well as validation for my feelings. She was reassuring and helped me gain perspective. I needed someone who would not just “tell me what to do,” but rather, help me think on my own and make my own decisions. There were also some recurring issues I had, which she also worked with me through EMDR. I have since recommended Jane to several people and will continue to do so.
I am so glad that I found Jane and EMDR. Ten years ago I lost my daughter. Seven years ago I lost a spouse to suicide. I was a mess. I had tried counseling and group therapy, and none of it seemed to work. My wife suggested that I give Jane a try, and I am glad I did. EMDR has worked for me. Jane has helped save my sanity, my marriage, and probably even my life.
Jane is a wonderful therapist and I have worked with her for over 3 years on various life challenges. Her knowledge and resources have been extremely resourceful in my experience working with her. Jane creates the opportunity for me to think through practical solutions and step by step processes to evaluate and resolve outstanding concerns. I especially appreciated her recommendations of books to read pertaining to personal needs as well as handouts and notes as I worked through my journey with her over the years. She not only provided service to me, she is also highly recommended to others in my network. I would recommend Jane to anyone who is interested in a therapist who cares, always has a smile on her face, and a positive character to help you through any “storm” that you may have. Her calm voice and ability to help me create boundaries in a comfortable environment were much appreciated.
I felt that Jane was very respectful of me. She listened to my concerns, and was really helpful in many ways.
Jane Plattner is a kind, respectful, insightful and knowledgeable therapeutic practitioner. Her range of modalities is quite extensive, thereby finding multiple strategies that help each individual on their road towards health and wellness. I highly recommend Jane with a full 5 stars!
