Meet the team

Jane Ryan, Founder and Director of Ryan Couples Therapy, carefully chooses all her team members. When adding therapists to her team, she intentionally looks for therapists whose passion and focus is helping people create vibrant, healthy and strong lives and relationships with themselves and with significant others.

As part of day to day business here at Ryan Couples Therapy, we practice what we preach in terms of creating strong, healthy relationships. Our team of therapists meet regularly for support, consultation, encouragement and inspiring new ways to help each other bring the highest quality of therapy to all clients who come to us for help.

Meet our Team Members…

Jane Ryan, M.A. LMFT

Who Am I:

I received my Masterʼs Degree from Pacific Lutheran University Marriage and Family Therapy program in 1998. And I have been practicing therapy ever since. I cannot imagine having a different career because being a therapist is “in my bones.” Practicing therapy feels completely authentic to how I naturally think, see the world, experience and observe emotions in myself and others, and feel empathy and compassion when witnessing anotherʼs pain and struggles.

Carlon Ryan

Upon graduating in 2014 with a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, Carlon made the decision to stay home and raise her two young boys. During this time, she learned that while parenting can bring joy, gratification, and love, it also presents specific challenges for mothers such as: feelings of isolation, depression, low self-worth, and challenges within their intimate relationships and families.

Her own experiences fueled her passion and desire to help others during their transition into parenting.
