Janet has extensive experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor; she received her Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Seattle University and her BA from Williams College.  In 2018, Janet completed a second Master’s degree program in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom.

Janet was one of the early Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teachers who became certified by the University of Massachusetts Medical School’s Center for Mindfulness (CFM), where MBSR was created by Jon Kabat-Zinn in 1979. She then received Certification as a MBSR Teacher Trainer from the CFM and the Mindfulness Center at Brown University.  She currently teaches MBCT and trains new MBCT teachers as an adjunct faculty member at Brown University’s School of Professional Studies.  

Trauma treatment is an area of personal passion and expertise.  Janet is fully trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing), and has twice completed the Certificate Program in Traumatic Stress Studies with the Trauma Center at Justice Resource Institute led by world-renowned trauma expert Dr. Bessel van der Kolk, MD.  She completed the 1st year of training in Somatic Experiencing, a treatment approach created by Peter Levine for resolving trauma.  She brings her in-depth understanding of Trauma-Sensitive Mindfulness to the community through presentations and workshops.

Janet began her itensive study of the body and patterns of stress and dis-ease with her work as a licensed massage practitioner. Since training as a counselor, she has supported clients coping with the wide variety of mental/emotional and physical health challenges and conditions that come with being human, including depression, panic and anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, cancer, AIDS, MS and other forms of chronic and acute illness. She has taught well over 50 Mindfulness-Based courses (MBSR & MBCT) in person and online, to students ranging in age from 21 to 87.

Janet began her first-person investigation of meditation at age 16 when she enrolled in a course in Transcendental Meditation in her hometown of Kansas City. Ten years later, she fell in love with yoga, as well as the Japanese martial art of Aikido and sword training.  Soon after reading Jon Kabat-Zinn’s book on MBSR, “Full Catastrophe Living,” she began the formal practice of mindfulness meditation.  Her work today emerges directly from over four decades of personal practice, investigation, and study.  Her daily teachers include her two children, ages 24 and 28, her husband of 30 years, and the newest member of the family: her adorable grandbaby.
