Jane Shares: “At this time in my life my work is to love myself and open to the depth and wholeness of who I am in deeper ways than ever before. With this foundation, I can help others to open to the love and wisdom within themselves. I specifically work with moms to reduce the stress and overwhelm and help them stay centered, calm and happy and have a deeper relationship with their children. This allows a more cooperative, fun and joyful experience with parenting!
I use my advanced parent coach and health coach training, combined with my unique expertise, research, experience, intuition, wisdom and effective tools to help parents move through difficult challenges with their children. I help parents replace ineffective or harmful habits and patterns with a more effective and peaceful approach to parenting.
Whether it’s behavior challenges or chronic health problems, I help parents to discover the underlying physical, neurological, and emotional causes and triggers that are unique to their children’s struggles – and remove them to create healing and wellness.
I’m currently in training to be a Somatic Awakening® practitioner. Somatic Awakening is a powerful mind-body-spirit modality which uses the power of your higher self to alchemically shift your deepest pain to peace, balance, and profound healing.
I live in beautiful Northern CA, with close access to the redwoods, the ocean and beauty all around me. I am connected with a loving tribe of vibrant elders who dance, chant, sing and play music together. This allows my wild and free spirit to express in a way that is truly satisfying to me. “
