Feeling heard -- with thoughtfulness and curiosity -- and being challenged, helps you develop insight and strategies for life changes. Patients tell me they appreciate the rewards of our collaborative process, and their relationships and careers often show the benefits. Together, we will explore your life, deciphering your questions and building upon your strengths. We will look at problematic behaviors and patterns, identify blockages to your goals, and work together to achieve happiness and success. In addition to relationship issues and mood disorders, I was voted as one of the areas' Best Therapists in the recent Washingtonian Magazine.
I rely heavily on clinical intuition acquired via thousands of therapy hours as both a patient myself and as a therapist. I incorporate my knowledge gained from parenting three teenagers, my own marriage and family history, my wins and losses as an athlete, organizational consultant and workshop leader.
I work especially well with attorneys, CEO's, and other professionals who like to be in charge. Such individuals can be unaware of what it is that needs confronting and/or unwilling to address it - I am not intimidated by the process required here. Read more at www.janebaxterphd.com.

Jane Baxter's Groups

Co-Ed Psychotherapy Group forming Monday 5 pm

The power of group psychotherapy lies in the fact that all human feelings, purposes, and behavior originate from the individual's adaptation to other people. The groups that I lead are actively run. Sitting in group for any period allows you to deepen your connection to your self and others with the intention of observing and changing patterns of behavior and dynamics. You are then actively encouraged to practice a new way of relating - whether it is confronting or comforting yourself, setting boundaries with others or taking risks, being vulnerable or learning healthier defenses - with my support and the support of the group behind you.
