Jane Simmons is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in San Antonio, TX. Jane specializes in working with individuals who suffer from anxiety. Many of her clients feel the need to control situations, find it difficult to refrain from certain thoughts or behaviors, and become so ingrained in their routines that they feel stuck - whether this is as a result of a traumatic event or something that developed over time. Jane also works with couples who feel disconnected and want to find new strategies for bonding with each other.
Jane draws from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a therapy modality that emphasizes the connection between thoughts, mood, and behaviors. For clients who have obsessive or compulsive behaviors and thought patterns, Jane utilizes her training in Exposure and Response Prevention to build up resistance to the emotional reactions resulting from certain stimuli. She does this work with keeping the role of trauma in mind, adjusting the session to ensure that all clients feel comfortable and safe.
Jane earned her Master’s degree from Wayland Baptist University. She is a warm, understanding therapist who empathizes with her clients in a way that builds trust, comfort, and rapport.
