My name is Jane Gallagher, founder of A Peaceful Place. I am working on completing a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Metropolitan State University. I am a licensed drug and alcohol counselor and problem gambling counselor with a certification from Minneapolis Community and Technical College. I received Therapeutic Coaching, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and NLP certifications from The Meta Institute. I have a professional background in natural medicine, energy healing, domestic violence, chronic pain, health, fitness, and people of all ages, races, sexes, genders, and creeds. ​

​​About the work

I am convinced that healing does not have to be a painful drudging up of the past to relive over and over and that people need to cry for days on end for emotional release. There might be a place and a time for that in everyone’s lives but I think therapy, in general, has gotten too much of an overall theme of a miserable experience and I don’t think it always needs to be that way. Sure, we need that sometimes but definitely not all the time and not every time we go to a therapeutic session.

I’ve been in a wide variety of situations and needed healing for myself and stumbled upon a healing path after having much experience on what worked for me and what didn’t work for me. 

I am dedicated to making a safe, confidential space for you to do what you need to do as I facilitate appropriate mental and behavioral therapy techniques. I am very grateful to have the opportunity to work with clients and to do what I love. It is an honor to work with every client, every time. Thank you for your interest and please call me with any questions you might have.
