About Jane Johnson Wall, MA, LMFT:
“Pandemic parenting” is hard. (In all honesty, it’s absolutely overwhelming at times!) Whether you are expecting your first child or adjusting to life with an empty “nest,” you are undoubtedly feeling the weight of uncertainty in the world, and it impacts your role as a mom. The past several months have been challenging, in so many ways. We are concerned about our children’s development, but also their safety. What’s a mom to do? How can we juggle it all? Every decision feels “heavy” and we want to get it right!
As you try to figure out what is best for you and your family, the anxious energy of others may feel contagious. More than ever, it really does “take a village!” You deserve to feel supported as you navigate these uncertain times, and deserve to receive some of the compassion you extend to others. Working together, you will develop strategies that allow you to pause and respond, not react. Techniques such as Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/tapping) and Thought Field Therapy (TFT) have been shown to provide significant relief from intense emotions. Small steps can lead to big changes, but the first step is often the hardest.
Jane believes that the most important component for a “successful” therapy experience is the interpersonal fit between client and clinician. Therapy is a collaborative effort, and requires a level of vulnerability. Although clinical experience and skills-set are important, the interpersonal connection is what allows for the “work” to be done. She takes her work seriously, but jokes that she can “guarantee” at least a few laughs each session.
After graduating from Chapman University, Jane became a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in 1998. She is currently licensed in 3 states, (CA, MA, and RI) and is certified to provide telehealth to residents of FL. She is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and has worked extensively supporting clients who are processing grief and loss. Throughout her career, she has worked with numerous families navigating difficult transitions. However, recognizing the lack of support for new mothers prompted her to pursue further training in maternal mental health, and she is completing certification as a Perinatal Mental Health Specialist.
