Jan Berg, MA, MCC

Jan believes our unique experience of the details of our personal and professional lives influences everything else. Our patterns, unexamined, become our prisons. Jan’s clients are focused on what they want, despite challenging relationships, aging parents, rebound children, demanding careers, overfilled schedules and previously untended spirituality. She brings personal experience, perspective, playfulness and hope to the process of living full-spectrum lives.
