I hired Jane as a Life Coach because I am going through a life transition and seeking a new path that reflects the growth I have managed over the last several. I spent many years in an emotionally abusive marriage where my feelings were dismissed, my dreams squelched and my intellect ridiculed. As a single parent in the ten years between now and then, I had little time to pursue dreams or new careers, but I was away from the bullying and able to finally begin to blossom and to value myself. Now my children are grown and I'm ready to take the next step, but I realized that I could not do it alone. The conditioning was still too strong. I wanted someone to help, to bounce things off of, to give me perspective and to keep me from falling into ambivalence and indecision in the face of that inner critic. Jane has been that person. She has a wonderful combination of kindness and straightforwardness. She spent our first session just listening, giving her full attention to where I had been and where I was at. The validation of that alone, was worth gold to me. She has the ability to listen in a way that is deep and that helps you hear yourself, and trust yourself. We are still working towards my goals, which she is helping me identify and stay true to. The more I work with her the more solid and confident I become in my dreams and the quieter that echo of the bully becomes. I highly recommend Jane for anybody who is in a transition period of their life--especially if you have been the victim of abuse--and is looking for someone who can provide support, structure and firm but gentle guidance. She never, never tells you what to believe or who you are or what you want. She helps you find your own way there.Apr 27, 2017VerifiedJQ Strategies and Services's reply

I met with Jane and felt instantly at ease. Jane brings her own life experiences to the discussion in a very comforting way. I’m working through a family crisis, and deeply appreciate Jane’s insights, compassion and understanding. I look forward to working with Jane on moving forward in positive and effective ways.Feb 5, 2020Verified
After a stressful move, finishing school, and an extended illness, my apartment was a little out of hand and I was overwhelmed. Jane was a lifesaver! She was very professional, showed up on time, and maximized the time she spent to help support my most immediate needs. I felt such a huge weight lifted off my shoulders even after the first few hours. She helped me to cull my bad habits and create new, better ones. She was also very respectful and sensitive to what was going on in my life; no judgment zone!May 1, 2017VerifiedJQ Strategies and Services's reply

As things are being moved in, yoire already creating a flow that will support the systems you had put into place at the other house. Enjoy your new home!!
Jane has tremendously impacted me on a personal level as well as assisting me in achieving my goals. During my first meeting I expressed my deep desire to write lyrics and recor. I had been suffering from writers block for over a year and I also needed help being more assertive. Jane had help me accomplish more than I could imagine. I have collaborated with songwriters in New York and Nashville within two months of meeting her. I have recorded in LA and my career has blossomed. If you want a coach who listens to you and truly cares about you, then Jane is the lady!!!!!Jul 28, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I always discuss the pricing directly with each customer during our consult. There are always package options.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The process is quite simple. Once you reach out and accept my quote I offer to set up a complimentary consult. During the consult, we discuss your goals, specific expectations they may have in regards to the process and timeframe to achieve their goals. We review rate and payment options. There are never any surprises. Then we set the date and time for our first session and we begin! Your world will be forever changed!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?First and foremost my experiences as a mother of three very active young men while working full-time as an elementary school teacher/school administrator, and more recently as an educational mentor and certified coach. I have a very diversified vitae and a love for life and every blessed day that life offers!! My resume’ is bulleted with years of study, degrees, certifications, recognitions, licenses and experiences related to my field of study and careers. Regardless, of the position, I have had to lead a very organized and systematic life to be successful, efficient and productive in my day. Communication has played an integral role throughout my career as has active listening. Helping an individual realize that they have it within themselves to figure out what is best for them has always been my goal. I don't bring canned programs or an answer book. Whether it's a life decision, career change or de-cluttering and organizing your space, I start with you and go from there.
