Licensed Professional Counselor
Jamie is an individual therapist working with people seeking to understand themselves, so that they can live life more authentically. Talking about your relationship with sex, processing trauma, regulating anxiety, and understanding your relationship dynamic are some of the areas in which you may work in therapy.
We are wired for connection; however, sometimes we might feel like we lose ourselves in our relationships. This could cause us to feel disconnected and unsure of what we want. Our attachment style plays an intricate role in how we view the world and how we view ourselves. Attachment style shows up in the dynamics of our current and future relationships. These can be subconscious patterns that we often need space and guidance to recognize, understand and repair. Jamie uses attachment theory, mindfulness and inner child work to support individuals through the process of revealing and healing these patterns.
Jamie is a trauma informed professional who also has experience working with anxiety. Anxiety and the “fight or flight” responses are intimately related. The body is built for survival, so if the body imagines, perceives or is actually under threat; the nervous system responds. Emotional repercussions of trauma can be confusing and can affect our ability to form healthy connections with others. Trauma responses can manifest in a variety of ways, including defensiveness, avoidance, dissociation, lack of trust and people pleasing to name a few. Jamie uses empathy, mindfulness and her knowledge of neurobiological processes to help people understand their trauma responses and promote self-regulation.
Therapy can be intimidating, especially sex therapy; Jamie is LGBTQ affirming and enjoys working with individuals who are wanting a safe space to discuss the topic of sex and to gain a greater understanding of their relationship to sex. If you grew up in a home that did not discuss sex, you received negative or shaming messages about sex, or perhaps you’re new to therapy; Jamie would be honored to support you.
