Testimonials from Clients

"Jan gave me great advice at a time when I was exhausted and demoralized. Her support was invaluable. She gave me concrete things to try that fit with my values and a welcome reminder to dig deeper beyond behaviours. My relationship with my daughter is better for it. The next time I need a fresh perspective, I will not hesitate to seek her counsel." - Brandeen

"I was very lucky to find Jan, as a counselor, while my child was still an infant. I am a single parent and I have relied on Jan's help many times! I love the attachment parenting way that Jan has shown me. It has built a solid trusting relationship between me and my child through the years. I feel my daughter has a very secure inner core due to Jan's advice. I am so grateful for finding and speaking to her." - Karen

"I am doing so much better since we talked and I read all the material you suggested. I'm sure you know you touch a whole lot of lives, but I wanted to let you know you touched mine and thus have touched my son's. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." - J.R.

"I feel very fortunate to have found Jan. Right from the start, she validated my concerns and shared personal experiences from her own parenting journey that helped me feel less alone and more supported. Jan has a peaceful way about her, and I leave our conversations with a sense of gentle empowerment. There are really no words to describe how much better I feel about mothering my daughter after consulting with Jan, but our daily smiles and laughter are very telling." - K.B.

"Jan is truly wonderful. She is just how she instructs us to be with our children - present, attentive and understanding. She was prepared and able to quickly process our situation and she confidently and directly provided excellent feedback and suggestions without judgment. I highly recommend not only Jan but her website and many resources that she makes available." - C. Harris
