Rev. Dr. Jane Williams
Professor of Clinical Counseling
Jane has a passion for journeys. Her professional journey began with becoming an ordained Episcopal Priest. She served as a chaplain in an Episcopal pre-K–12 school, a parish priest, coordinator of a parish-based spirituality center, and adjunct professor in a DMin program at Virginia Theological Seminary. But something felt not quite complete, so she also became a licensed psychologist. She has worked as the director of a college counseling center and in her own private practice, Holistic Counseling Resources.
To add to her professional journey, she traveled on pilgrimage to Chartres Cathedral near Paris (where the only existing original 13th century labyrinth is inset into the Cathedral floor), and has walked a 100 kilometer portion of the ancient pilgrimage route of El Camino de Santiago in northern Spain. Jane became a certified Labyrinth Facilitator and offers labyrinth retreats on such topics as forgiveness, the grief process, and life transitions.
An avid gardener, Jane loves to plant and tend perennials, vegetables, and raspberries. Her foolproof way of dealing with stress is to design and make wire and bead jewelry.
