Making changes in our lives can feel impossible at times, even when our habits and thinking patterns no longer serve us. In the therapy room, Jamie seeks to model radical acceptance with the ups and downs of growth with humor, patience, and curiosity. She takes a strengths-based and transdiagnostic treatment approach, informed by dialectical and cognitive behavior therapy, exposure and response prevention, and emotion-focused family therapy. Grounded in the DBT tradition, Jamie prioritizes nonjudgment and dialectical thinking: we can accept difficult realities and still lead a life worth living.

I would like to offer the experience of community and provide a support system for you and your family.
I work with children, adolescents, and their families with the goal of supporting them in understanding their emotional and relationship struggles. I use developmentally appropriate psychotherapeutic strategies with children and adolescents and I facilitate the development of inner resilience and identification of existing resiliency. I also work with couples who are experiencing relationship difficulties and are wanting to improve and strengthen their relationship. At times, improving communication may seem to be the solution, and other times, the relationship may need deeper exploration to understand the couple dynamics.

Since I am a relational and family therapist I am specifically trained to work with more than one person in the therapy room.
We experience grief, anxiety and stress at any given moment throughout life and these are completely normal human feelings. However, these feelings can cloud our vision and hold us back from our full potential. My goal is to guide you to the best version of yourself. I create a safe space for you to be your authentic self where I can show you how to use the tools that you already have. I believe you are the expert on your life and I am here to assist you to organize your thoughts and find some clarity. My ideal clients are curious, introspective, and motivated, but for whatever reason struggling in different areas of their life.

In family/marital, we seek to understand each family member and work to improve communication, trust, balance and harmony.
The therapists in our practice joined together because of our shared belief that our clients, who have reached out for help in managing and overcoming the challenges their lives, each have a unique set of strengths that often need to be better understood and developed. In our own styles, we each use the therapeutic relationship to understand what is interfering with an individual's sense of fulfillment in life. We approach therapy from the perspective that, at our core, our clients are health seeking but may be repeating old patterns that are not serving them well.

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in Chicago or for a Chicago family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Chicago using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
