UNDERSTANDING

When I first considered going to Jan Marie, I was very skeptical. I thought I knew exactly what my problems were (mainly other people) and I just wanted an unbiased opinion on how to fix them. I remember a few weeks in I said, “okay how soon will I see results?” I was frustrated in my career, confused in my dating life, disconnected from family, and really lost within myself.  Jan Marie has been so patient and understanding. During our sessions I find myself beginning to explain why I reacted a certain way and she says, “Oh I know – I know YOU…” That’s what is so special about Jan Marie  She is completely relatable but also challenges me to be who I am. I never realized how much I hide myself to turn into a chameleon & avoid a tough decision or an awkward conversation. I would highly recommend Jan Marie. I am still a client, and now I feel empowered to be a better me!

SAFE, UNBIASED

Prior to meeting Jan Marie I felt like I was drowning with all of my responsibilities as a mom, wife, and employee. From the first time I walked into her office, I always felt comfortable, and in a safe, unbiased, and calming environment. I am now able to prioritize things in my life and make time for me. Her suggestions led to lots of self discovery and more effective communication within my relationships. I am finally able to breathe again and have learned to navigate life, and live a more balanced life overall. I am appreciative of the clarity she has brought to my life and thank her tremendously.

TOTALLY ENGAGED

Jan Marie was wonderful! Totally engaged and made me feel extremely comfortable throughout our sessions. Jan Marie was able to listen attentively and provide very specific guidance, which helped both me and my significant other resolve our concerns. Jan Marie is someone I would highly recommend because she is sincere in her approach to helping her clients.

HOPE RESTORED

After years of never once connecting with or feeling truly understood by anyone, I was completely ready to give up hope. After finding myself in a very bad dark place in my life I was referred to Jan Marie by a friend and within 5 minutes of meeting her I knew the hope I had given up on had been restored. I came to Jan Marie with several issues. Depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. From day 1 there was never any delusion or confusion about the type of help and services that she could offer me. If she felt that she could not, or was not the best person to address a particular issue I was having, Jan Marie being as extremely resourceful as she is, made sure to find someone or some other type of resource that could address a particular need I may have had. But what struck me most about Jan Marie was her compassion and understanding, but even more was the sincerity with which she offered it. I have never felt so comfortable and truly cared about by almost anyone. Jan Marie takes what she does to an entirely different level and while being 100% professional offers the support, trust, and understanding most would be lucky to find in a best friend. She completely changed my views. Bottom line, Jan Marie was the support and guidance I needed at a time I needed it most and she will never know what she has done for me or the level of gratitude, admiration, and respect that I hold for her both as a professional but more importantly as a person.

ATTENTIVE & CARING

Jan Marie was extremely helpful as my husband and I worked through our relationship issues. She was an attentive and caring listener who helped us develop action plans to work on from session to session. She created a comfortable, non-threatening atmosphere that allowed us to air our true feelings. We were able to resolve all of our major issues and years later are still married having overcome that difficult time in our relationship. We would highly recommend Jan Marie to anyone going through a tough time.

COMMITTED TO WONDERFUL CARE

I truly appreciate Jan Marie and the time I worked with her. I ended up out of state and knowing the issues I had with feeling rejected and the tendency to feel abandoned she consulted with me from a distance and helped me find someone in the state I relocated to. She even took the time to reach out to make sure I was doing ok with all the transitions I was going through. She is committed to giving wonderful care and has great concern for the well being of her patients, I am a testimony to that.

ATTENTIVE & CARING

I reached out to Jan Marie for issues in my relationship. Although it was a Sunday, she took her time and answered all the questions I had right away, and I booked an appointment in the following days. Jan Marie made me realize a lot of things that were going on in my life. What I loved the most, was that she is a realist and always made me understand things by clarifying situations. She is very professional and her office is very adorable. I recommend her to everyone who needs to have clarity in their life; she’s amazing.

GENUINE

I have had the pleasure of working with Jan Marie from 2011 – 2017. The thing that brought me to Jan Marie was a childhood trauma that resurfaced in my adulthood. Jan Marie expertly helped me to process the event and supported me as I worked my way through the pain. Once the work of that task was complete, I became acutely aware of how that early event shaped my interactions in all my relationships. I noticed how I had no voice with the people I cared about. I began to see that I wasn’t very clear in what I wanted or expected. I also felt stressed out and angry much of the time. I hadn’t made the connection between good emotional “self-care” and my level of anger. Jan Marie helped me to see that I could feel so much stronger as a woman when I began to speak up for myself. She patiently guided me as I took baby steps to reclaiming myself: my likes, my dislikes, my goals, what I was willing and unwilling to do for someone else. She assigned homework, which was so very beneficial for me. I believe my progress was amplified by my willingness to work on myself outside of our weekly hour. Jan Marie did her best to prepare me for the fact that relationships would be tested with the new way that I was being myself. (The improved me, JP 2.0). And then she offered to guide me and my husband through a difficult time. I credit the fact that I am about to celebrate my 17th wedding anniversary with Jan Marie’s experience and caring. She genuinely wanted me to be my happiest self, the best version of me. The skills she left me with here in NJ have gotten me through additional rough patches. Thanks to Jan Marie I feel confident that I can handle any situation life throws at me and know that I will come out, not just ok, but happier for the decisions I have made. I no longer coast with the status quo for fear of rocking the boat. I speak up for myself; and that feels really good!

SENSE OF URGENCY

It is my distinct pleasure and sincere honor to personally recommend Jan Marie. We came to her several months ago in dire need of help. From day one, she has had a sense of urgency for our situation while providing understanding, empathy, attention, acceptance, and encouragement. She has given our family a “safe” space to speak a dialogue that is both truthful and revealing without feeling judged, one where we can express ourselves honestly and unscripted to get to a place of healing. Jan Marie has provided our daughter with the ability to independently solve problems by not handing out solutions, but by TEACHING her how to approach each situation that she may encounter while giving her the tools necessary to do so. As a family, we have learned through our time with Jan Marie new ways of thinking, the importance of being honest with ourselves, how to manage our emotions and, most importantly, how to effectively communicate; all of which is possible because she encourages and facilitates ways of practicing the new skills, and embracing new habits while using them in our everyday life. With much gratitude.

BRIGHTER JOURNEY

I have been going to Jan Marie for over a year now and she has helped me in so many ways. Not only has she opened my eyes about many things but has also given me the tools I need to head towards a brighter journey. She is very flexible and always tries her hardest to accommodate my hectic schedule. I wouldn’t think of going to anyone else. I had gone to other professionals prior to meeting her and was never happy. With Jan Marie I am comfortable and I highly recommend her services.
