How would you describe therapy with you?
When you step into my office you will be warmly greeted in a judgement-free setting. The therapeutic process starts with a through assessment to really get to know who you are and where you are at, because the issues you have don’t define who you are as a person. We will work together to identify the problem areas and employ the therapeutic process to foster growth.

My Passions and Specialties:
I am passionate about practicing therapy from a person-centered approach, using narrative therapy to separate you from your issues and rewrite the story of your life to reflect who you truly are. I believe the therapeutic process needs to be direct, honest, and specifically tailored to the nuances of you and your situation. In an effort to best facilitate that growth, I have trained in therapeutic theories including CBT, DBT, EFT, and Gottman therapy for couples.

My specialties include dealing with:
Identity
Sexuality and Gender
Depression
Bipolar Disorder
Anxiety
Intimacy
Sexual Dysfunction
Addiction
Self-Exploration
Trauma
Stress Management
Communication
Life Transitions
Pregnancy

My Personal Journey:
There isn’t much I haven’t seen. As a trauma survivor myself, I have performed therapy in psych wards, prisons, and women’s health clinics. I truly believe my experiences have instilled a deep and authentic sense of empathy towards those on personal journeys of healing, and a dedication to the therapeutic process. My early education focused on women’s studies, sexuality and gender, and social justice issues.
Starting your journey on the therapeutic process can be intimidating, but I am here to guide you on the process to meaningful growth.

About Jamie:
I enjoy working with individuals and couples who are faced with a multitude of challenges. My specialty focuses on issues of sexuality and gender, with a keen sensitivity to individuals who self-identify as female. I employ a holistic, person-centered approach to counseling, helping those dealing with feelings of guilt and shame narrate their stories to overcome traumatic issues. My therapeutic approach focuses on building a strong, healthy foundation to overcome self-defeating patterns. Throughout therapy, you can expect to grow your connections to those closest to you by developing communication skills, empathy, and a positive sense of self.

Jamie may be a good fit for you if:
"You are struggling to connect with your partner after a major life event”
“You are having trouble adapting to a shifting family or work dynamic”
"You are working through stigma attached to your non-traditional relationship"
"You are exploring your sexuality or gender identity"
“You self-identify as female and are going through a life transition regarding your identity”
“You or your partner are dealing with past trauma that is affecting your relationship”
“You are looking to form a deeper, more trusting connection with your partner”
