Hi, I'm Jane. Welcome to Jane Coburn.life.
As a mom of two autistic adult sons, recovering people-pleaser and perfectionist, I know what it's like to look strong and high-achieving on the outside, but be crumbling on the inside. For years I was tired, questioned my self-worth, and felt as if I couldn't keep up with what society seemed to expect from me.
Then, in 2013, everything changed when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I knew as soon as the words were leaving the oncologist's mouth that I would go to any lengths to survive. I had already stopped using alcohol to numb my anxiety and escape the pressures of life three years earlier, but I also knew something else had to give. Through meditation, yoga, and mindfulness practices, I learned to be more present, and discovered what I truly liked and wanted in my life. I found the resources I needed to take practical, often simple, steps each day to a healthier, more well balanced, more present and joyful life.
Today I'm cancer-free, have one son who just graduated from college and another living a rich, independent life and am fully enjoying my empty nest. With a Master's Degree in Counseling and 30 years experience as a Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professional and case manager to people with disabilities, I had the tools and experience necessary to make a positive change in my life and want to help others like me successfully navigate the pitfalls and pressures of everyday life.
