Jane is a highly skillful and compassionate therapist, and the work I did with her catalyzed a deep healing that led to major improvements in my relationships, work, and creativity. R.K.
I came to Jane seeking help for the physical and mental anxiety with which I have reacted to certain situations for years. Jane is compassionate and focused, and responded to my needs with respect for my comfort zone. With Jane’s help, I have learned to step away from my own frenzied thinking and create a space of calmness and peace. She has introduced me to a powerful new advocate for me: me. For the first time in my life, I feel in control. I am very grateful to her for providing me with the tools to accomplish this. (Anonymous)

When I got run over by a car a couple years back, you kindly offered your services right away. I can't tell you what an amazing effect those sessions had on me, my recovery and my life. I think of trauma differently now. Your approach turned something hard and immovable into something fluid and flexible. - Renee Meiffren, Dancer
“After just three sessions, I feel this work is miraculous. I think I know what’s going on, but when I go into the body I find things I’ve forgotten or repressed. SE has helped me go deeper than my normal consciousness. I now feel more embodied in my sitting practice, and some deep pain that I’ve had about earlier events has eased. - Reirin Gumbel, Head Cook, Green Gulch Farm Zen Center
"Being a novice to SEP I was a bit nervous to try something new, but Jane was so gentle and paved the way so clearly that I never had a moment's hesitation. I arrived with a particular trauma to work on and through Jane's attuned support I was able to safely move through the various stages and to fully process the event. I am grateful for the support and highly recommend her services!" - Alexis Petrakis, Psychology Doctoral Candidate
Working with Jane and SE has significantly helped with somatic manifestations of stress, enhanced my mindfulness practice and expanded my "embodied" life experience. Jane is a kind, compassionate and knowledgeable SE practitioner, a true pleasure to work with. - Carmen Irizarry, Psychiatrist
I met Jane during a very painful time in my life, and she taught me how to reconnect with my own abilities to respond to stress and heal on every level. Her generous warmth, kindness and humor help create a really safe space to express feelings and learn new ways of dealing with difficult situations. In a very short time, she helped me reset my nervous system and allow it to regulate the way it was originally intended to. Jane is a true healer and an incredibly lovely person. Deepest bows. - Clare, Zen Student
With Jane Lazar's help I have significantly reduced a life long, intense fear of anger in only a few months. She is warm hearted, gentle, supportive and very effective. I feel completely safe with her while we are exploring sensitive terrain. She often amazes me with her acute observations. I would recommend her without qualification.
“For many years I have had ulcerative colitis. In stressful times I experienced pain and burning in my stomach, constipation or diarrhea, irritation and fear. SE sessions taught me skills so that now when stress enters my life, I am able to feel it in my body and discharge it. I no longer experience any symptoms.“ - Immanuel Eimer, Chaplain
