Always having a love and appreciation for the natural world, wilderness therapy “just makes sense” to Jana who has been working with children and adolescents since 2005 in camp and expedition based summer recreation programs. Eventually she landed at a program that helped her realize her passion was less rooted in teaching people about trees, and more rooted in teaching people about themselves next to trees.
Jana earned her MA in mental health counseling with focus in addictions from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR. Jana has worked in a variety of therapeutic settings including community mental health clinics, public middle and high schools, therapeutic boarding schools, and a clinic specializing in gaming and technology overuse and addiction. Her style is warm and direct. Jana enjoys using creative expression and experiential modalities to help families understand their old patterns and build skills in communicating to improve family relationships. In her spare time, Jana enjoys hiking with her dog, Maggie, mountain biking, and baking cupcakes. Jana feels inspired by the resilience of teens and their families and is excited to be a part of the Trails Carolina team.
