Jane L. Ades, LCSW

Long Island Therapy


I see therapy as an endeavor in which you and I work to explore obstacles in the way of your happiness. Painful relationships or critical self-judgments can impair your resiliency and motivation to effect the changes you’d like to see in your life. I can offer you a way to think about yourself, in an environment of trust, which will help you to fully inhabit and direct your life.

The connection that forms between each therapist and patient pair is one of the building blocks in achieving a reflective and self-aware stance. This decision to enter into psychotherapy marks a time of transition. It is a potential time and space without judgment, offering an opportunity to explore and define the difficulties which have kept you from becoming the person you’d like to be. Depression and anxiety, stress and disappointment can cloud our ability to see ourselves with compassion. Having this new space will allow us to explore your challenges while also looking to the future to develop a new awareness and responsiveness.

"A warm, compassionate clinician!"

I've known Jane as a colleague for almost 20 years, and I have great respect and admiration for her clear thinking, her solid clinical skills, and her devotion to her patients. I have and will continue to refer to her, and highly recommend her for both individuals and couples."
