Jan has been leading Nia classes for eating disorder patients since 2015 and has taught at Esperanza since the center opened in 2019. She holds a master’s degree in Psychology, is a Licensed Specialist in School Psychology and has completed five levels of Nia training as well as Nia Moving to Heal training, the therapeutic branch of Nia. She has completed courses in various types of movement to promote healing, including four years of training to become a Certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner, which she incorporates into classes at Esperanza.

She enjoys being at Esperanza because “the holistic approach and amazing staff really set it apart. The welcoming environment where interventions are implemented at the level of the body, mind and spirit, encompassing all aspects of the individual, helps create a unique environment for healing.”
