At times we can develop patterns or ways of living that once served us well, but can leave us feeling stuck. Whatever your reasons for seeking therapy, I believe that there is hope for every individual to experience healing and growth. I walk alongside clients to help them rebuild trust and safety within themselves, so that they can tap into the resiliency and vitality we all have within us.
I help women and girls unlock their true potential in therapy by providing a space that is filled with empathy, authenticity, and inspiration. My holistic approach to therapy is hands-on and client-centered, as each woman's story is unique. I believe that one of the first and most powerful steps in therapy is simply developing an innate sense of self awareness around your thoughts, emotions, and story while learning to make meaning from past experiences. Providing a relatable and modern approach to therapy is one of my main goals as I help you learn to break free from negative patterns that keep getting you stuck.
My practice is holistic and honors the mind/body/soul connection. My style is supportive, interactive, compassionate, and direct. I believe life is a journey of peak and valley experiences, and I see myself as a guide when you are having difficulty on your path. I frequently use EMDR which is very helpful with grief, trauma, abuse, or self-esteem. *In keeping with CDC guidelines for COVID-19, if you are ill--even a headache or sore throat--please cancel your appointment at no charge or consider a phone/video appt. New clients are only seen between 11 am - 3 pm Tuesdays through Thursdays.
Being human. Along with the beautiful parts of life comes pain, struggle, and trauma. Everyone deserves a safe person with whom they can address these things and achieve real healing. Real relief. My first goal when beginning work with clients is to create that place where they can be their authentic selves...and feel accepted. To give them unconditional support without judgement. With this relationship formed, the deeper and holistic work can begin. Healing can happen. If you're struggling with self-esteem, trauma, mood disorders, substance use...or just struggling at all, we can work together to help you find peace.
Therapy is for all. For the hurt. For the worried. For the strong and the brave aspiring for something greater. Whatever your reason, whatever your goals, I'm here to help walk alongside you in your journey toward growth and better mental health.
Thanks for taking the time to read my profile. I hope whether it's me or another counselor, you find a good fit. I walk with people to live out the good life, right in the middle of a life that can be somewhere between daunting and overwhelming. I've had the privilege of working with leaders in business and with brave women and men facing trauma, depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and suicidal thoughts. I have encountered the most brilliant and beautiful stories in this work - real meaning and relationship in the middle of real pain.
Stuck? Suffering? Unsure of what to do next? I live to serve those struggling with Substance Use Disorder (SUD), and their families. If you or a family member is struggling with use of drugs an alcohol, I am here to help. In addition, those facing the challenges of ongoing recovery, including co-occurring disorders, family of origin issues, codependency, life stage issue, etc, will feel perfectly at home. I am ready to help you.
Congratulations on taking this step in your journey towards health and healing. It is my goal to help create a safe, nonjudgemental space for my clients to build a more compassionate relationship with their own pain and suffering. When we take a more compassionate and loving stance with our own pain, we can then begin to feel more empowered to move towards the things that we most deeply value and desire in life. You matter, your voice matters, your pain matters. It would be my honor to walk with you on your journey.
I believe that all of us can benefit from additional support in different seasons of our lives. It takes bravery to reach out and meet with someone, and I’m passionate about building a relationship with my clients where they are able to engage with their own resilience and innate ability to heal. Many of us develop patterns that help us move through and cope with what we have experienced, and often, we realize these strategies are no longer serving us, and are keeping us from experiencing the full life we desire. I walk alongside my clients in helping them become reconnected to their true selves, and reach their goals.
Finding a treatment provider that understands your needs, or your child's needs, while appreciating the struggle to find answers and solutions should not be an additional hurdle. I have over 30 years of experience treating children, families and adults who are struggling with behavioral concerns, trauma, depression, anxiety and chronic health disorders and can offer diagnostic evaluations, testing and treatment individually tailored to meet your unique needs. Additionally, I have extensive training and experience in diagnosing and treating Autism Spectrum Disorders and can offer consultative services, coaching and advocacy.
I am a firm believer that everyone has a unique story to share. Often those stories reveal a lot more than meets the eye. Only when we begin embracing our stories does healing take place. By understanding and owning our past we gain the insight and ability to influence our future. I practice an approach that is holistic in nature and believe it is essential to treat the mind, body, and soul. I have worked with various specialties such as Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Sex Addiction, Substance Addiction, Counseling for those with Autism, Couples in distress, and Severe Trauma.
Amidst the changing realities since 2020, are you facing too much isolation or are you in the middle of workplace stressors? My dissertation research which focused on health care workers facing workplace errors offers even relevance today. With that research along with more than 40 years in teaching, counseling, interviewing, and writing, I can help you connect with ancient spiritual truths in light of the evidence from brain science. Are you a part of the "sandwich generations" caught between the realities of young children and aging parents? My experience has taught me the value of ongoing support groups.
Do you find yourself ruminating over the past and feel embarrassed, anxious, or depressed for “not being over it"? Trauma has a deep effect on our lives and awareness of that impact is what helps us to navigate it more skillfully. Through careful observation of how we think, feel, and act, we can sink deeper into our experiences and become more knowledgeable of ourselves. By engaging in this process, clients are able to develop a personal mastery of their own lives.
Who is this guy? Hello and welcome to Mark Jameson Therapy Studios! Here's my story: My name is Mark. I'm gonna go ahead and tear down some walls. I have ADHD. I am gay and also a survivor of gay reparative therapy and religious trauma. I'm an LCSW with 12 years experience working with adults and children in acute psychiatric care settings including psychiatric hospitals, emergency rooms, and intensive residential programs for adults. The latter half of my career, I have honed in on providing cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for adults in individual settings. I enjoy accompanying my clients on their unique journey to empowerment.
I specialize in individual counseling for those struggling with anxiety, relationship, work, and school stress, negative thoughts, mood disorders, and LGBTQ+ concerns including gender and sexual identity. My goal is to make the therapeutic process as stress-free as possible for my clients by providing an open, welcoming environment where you can express yourself freely while we work together to meet your needs.
I help clients struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, PTSD/trauma, motivation & life adjustments. I am a trained trauma therapist and also value my client's interests in their personal spiritual beliefs, rituals and practices. Using an attachment-focused lens, I work with clients to improve communication and connection in their relationships. Everyone can benefit from the honest self-reflection and processing that is provided in therapy. When we step out of the limiting beliefs of the past, we are all capable of living a life of purpose and meaning in healthy relationship to ourselves and others.
I help clients struggling with anxiety, depression, relationships, PTSD/trauma, motivation & life adjustments. It is not uncommon to find ourselves stuck or overwhelmed. We've often learned to neglect ourselves, our needs, and feel unable to call upon others when we need help. Many of us battle with feelings of shame and speak to ourselves in a critical voice. I believe this often comes from a place of wounding from our past that drives us further away from our true, authentic self. When we can learn how to care for ourselves in the way we needed in the past, we can shift our beliefs of ourselves and who we are in relation to others
Our collective struggle is that we have inherited a world of imbalance and as such, imbalance lives within each of us. It is my belief that healing is done in community, and that true change can only occur in the space between individuals. Together, we will work to find equilibrium and healing amongst the madness. It is my goal to help clients develop and hone the best version of themselves according to their own vision. Through the integration of movement and the expressive arts, I seek to assist clients in rewriting their narratives in a way that embodies dignity and strength.
Have you or someone you love been impacted by substance use in a negative way? Are you curious about what changes you can make to understand and address Substance Use Disorder? Are you unsure of what to do next or where to begin? I’m Trey, a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselor, and I am here to help. The decision to engage in therapy is a difficult and commendable choice. I’m committed to providing a safe and validating atmosphere to honor this sacred journey. My practice is a space for individuals who are in early or ongoing recovery and those that love them.
You put your best foot forward but struggle to acknowledge the good in your life. You put on a brave face and constantly show up for others but neglect your own needs. You have been conditioned to say “everything is fine” and hide how you really feel. Sometimes you may even feel like you don’t deserve joy.
