"Janine's dynamic presentation style and integration of the latest research on the neurobiology of trauma with her significant clinical experience in working with those who have experienced sexual assault makes her an outstanding consultant in our field.

"I was so thankful that I heard Janine’s presentation in Boise last week on working with clients with extensive histories of trauma, particularly sexual abuse. I've been working in outpatient mental health venues since 1978 and it's refreshing to be reminded about the principles of hope, compassion, and passion on a periodic basis. Survivors of trauma come as gifts to our practice and we get to witness wonderful examples of courage and resiliency. Janine reminded us of our part of the contract - sometimes we forget."
