Peaceful Mind Therapy of Florida
COUNSELING - EDUCATION - SUPERVISION
Hello! I’m Jane Simmons, owner and executive director of Peaceful Mind Therapy in Naples, Florida.
In August of 2000, my family and I moved to Naples from East Providence, Rhode Island, where I was a music director and teacher. That was when I challenged myself to go back to college pursue a new career in psychology.

Anxiety and Stress Management is my passion
My personal battle with stress and anxiety led me on a search to find the best way to heal and achieve success in my life. As a musician, I struggled with performance anxiety and stress overload. As a mother, I was desperate to find answers to help my daughter work through social anxiety and panic attacks. And as a daughter, I needed to know the best ways to manage my relationship with my mother who suffered a lifetime of severe anxiety. By combining my personal experiences with years of education and specialized training, I am able to help others heal from stress, anxiety and trauma and other related mental disorders. I specialize in treating people with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), Panic Disorder, Post traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and stress overload.
Mentoring is a great way to pay it forward
I enjoy my work as a supervisor for students in the Mental Health Counseling program at Capella University. My first intern has recently graduated his program and is now a Registered Intern in a group practice. My most recent intern is Tisha Lane who plans to graduate this summer. You can meet her on Tuesdays and Thursdays in my office.
You may be my most interesting client
The most important thing I would like my clients to know is the passion I have for this work. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, teenages and children. I especially like working with families overcoming issues of divorce, separation, remarriage and new family members. I also enjoy helping couples learn more about each other and better ways to communicate in their relationship. By far, the most interesting client is the next person who walks through the door. I look forward to sharing my gifts with people who are searching to be more than they are. It’s exciting and rewarding for me when I am able to help others find their strength, unique gifts and motivation toward a better tomorrow.
