I am a LGBTQIA + affirming therapist and certified trauma professional.
Yes, I am accepting new clients! Here’s the thing: life is hard. No matter how much we try, we are not exempt from challenges. Whether it's within our family, our relationships, our communities or ourselves, those challenges often make us stuck, overwhelmed, and hopeless. If you’re reading this, you probably know what I’m talking about. Here’s the good news: it doesn't have to stay this way. Things can and do change. I use a wide range of therapy models that allow me to center and hold space for you while working towards your goals at your pace.

My specialty areas with adults and children include Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, PTSD, Gender Identity, LGBTQ , parent training, school refusal, life transitions, and behavior problems.
When psychological symptoms interfere with health, sleep, well-being, and general functioning, how do you choose among the many available treatment options? One consideration may be an evidence-based approach: one with proven efficacy. In my practice as a licensed clinical psychologist for children and adults, I use cognitive behavioral treatments and other strategies whose effectiveness is well supported by research studies. Finding the right fit is important, and I'm here to help.

I am a sex-positive, body-accepting, anti-racist, LGBTQ + ally in all aspects of my life, and this open-hearted stance deeply informs my work as a clinical therapist.
Hey there, I’m Jamie (she/her). If you struggle to feel seen, if you experience stress with your identity or in your relationships, or maybe if you're new to therapy or you've had not-great encounters with therapists in the past, I hope you'll book a session and give me a try. My approach is intuitive, collaborative, and conversational, and prioritizes a safe and inclusive experience for people from diverse and often marginalized backgrounds.

As you’re looking for a therapist, it’s important to find someone you feel comfortable opening up to, and maybe even sharing aspects of your life that are hard to discuss. My clients often go there with me quickly; they can tell that I will be warm, supportive, nonjudgmental, and honor their trust. My approach to therapy is multicultural, LGBTQ + affirming, sex/kink positive, and I have a background working with first gen people. Clients who want to better understand and express their emotions have found therapy with me helpful for learning communication and skills they weren’t taught growing up.

I am a clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience in private practice. I have helped many individuals to develop more peaceful lives, working through feelings of depression, anxiety and relationship struggles. I love working with parents, especially because their growth can have such a positive impact on their children. I have a special interest in working with caregivers of special needs children. This passion developed after facing the challenge of parenting my own special needs child. During COVID-19 I will discount rates to make therapy affordable to parents who have medically fragile or behaviorally challenged kids.

Have you been diagnosed with ADHD, anxiety, or a mood disorder? Do you feel everything in the world, both joys and sorrows, deeply? Are life transitions or even everyday life stresses difficult for you? Are you sensitive or feel that others don't "get" you? If so, I can help you. My clients are often smart, skilled, and talented, but lack the energy, focus, drive, or executive functioning skills (like planning and organization) to reach their full potential. Not realizing their potential--or all of the potentials in all areas--creates great pain itself.

* Accepting new clients* Pursuing therapy is a courageous act! I recognize the difficulty of this choice and have great respect for each client who presents themselves to me for help. My aim is to make therapy a safe place where you can express your feelings openly, work through difficult issues and develop tools and solutions. My approach to therapy is to start with a strong relationship based on trust and acceptance, identify your goals and use cognitive behavioral therapy tools to teach you how to look at the ways your thinking patterns influence your feelings about yourself and ultimately how you behave in your life.

Very few adults, let alone children or teenagers, jump at the chance to start seeing a therapist. Difficult circumstances might have brought you to this point: communication problems with family members, frequent arguments, feeling stressed out, or having intense feelings of depression and anxiety. I strive to create a warm and welcoming environment for my clients. My approach is personal, practical, non judgmental. I work in a variety of ways, depending on your or your child's needs and preference, using cognitive behavioral therapy, art therapy, and play therapy.
