About Jane

After  graduating “summa cum laude” from Boston College with my B.A. degree in  psychology in 1988, I took a year off and travelled around the world on  a mountain bike before returning to Boston College to complete a Master  of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology in 1992.  Along the way,  I  completed a Master’s level internship at The University of Vermont’s  Counseling Center and performed screenings for drug and alcohol referred  students for Boston College’s Counseling and Psychological Services.   Thereafter, I decided to pursue my doctoral degree in counseling  psychology from The University of Northern Colorado where I also worked  with undergraduate and graduate aged students at UNC’s Counseling  Center.  I then completed a clinical internship at The Ohio State  University Counseling and Psychological Services.  In 1997, after  relocating to beautiful Charleston, SC, I worked for The Citadel, The  Military College of South Carolina prior to the opening of my private  practice in 1999.

My  husband, Dr. Kerry Lassiter and I met and married while we were both  studying professional psychology at The University of Northern  Colorado.  We decided to make Charleston our home as we love the  weather, the beaches and beautiful marshes of the lowcountry.  In  addition to a shared love of helping others with our professional lives,  we also share a love of travel, physical fitness and spending time with  good friends and family.  We feel especially blessed in our lives for  having the opportunity to travel to China and adopt our twin daughters,  Lily and Mia, who continue to inspire us to be the best parents we can  be.
