The therapeutic process provides a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space for individuals to share and navigate their own unique challenges and aspirations. Jamie believes both therapy and assessment can assist everyone in gaining insight into their strengths and areas of growth. She uses her knowledge of psychological practices to help clients understand and work through emotional, behavioral, and cognitive challenges that may be impacting their lives. She believes the therapeutic relationship is of utmost importance in this process, emphasizing building trust and often relying on interpersonal connection and understanding. Gaining insight into each individual’s unique life experiences and diversity factors are also crucial components of this process. Jamie can provide clinical services that are tailored to each individual’s style, needs, and goals.
Jamie utilizes an integrated approach that is grounded in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
