Hi my name is Jamie and I'm not your traditional mental health therapist. I have 30 plus years experience providing supportive counseling, crisis intervention and life coaching/encouragement in the setting of acute medical hospitals, nursing homes, and community physical rehab centers. I have worked with individuals with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief/loss and life changes ( empty nest, divorce, retirement ). People experiencing physical /emotional abuse have also found my support helpful. I have a Bachelor of Social Work degree from Salem State University. My Master of Social Work degree is from Boston University. I have a Certificate of Clinical Gerontology from Boston College. I am licensed in MA ( LICSW ) NC ( LCSW ) NH ( LICSW ) ME ( LCSW ).
My counseling style is warm, caring and supportive. I meet my people where they are in their discomfort and together we identify the source of pain and we work together to find a solution. My approach is YOU focused. It is gentle and kind. I am a nurturer. I will listen to your story and together we will develop a plan that will lead you to a better place in your life. I will never lead you to a place you are not ready to go .
We live in a challenging world. Life is hard. I believe we all deserve to have peace of mind, feel motivated, and experience joy. This is not too much to ask for out of life. With my many years of experience I have helped people lessen their anxiety, improve their mood, move forward with difficult life decisions, improve the quality of their personal/work relationships and heal broken hearts. I would love the opportunity to offer my skills and compassion to help with your journey to a more peaceful, joy filled state of mind.

Jamie has been nothing but helpful since I started working with her. I really feel heard and feel like I’ve found a safe place.

I have been to about 7 different therapists over the last 20 years and not a single one of them was even half as good as Jamie. Easily the best therapy experience I have personally ever had. She listens, asks thought provoking questions, and most importantly helps to solve any problems she can. I could not recommend Jamie enough to anyone looking for a new therapist.

She's amazing and I'm so happy to have found her. I don't dread therapy sessions with her like I have with other therapists I've had. It's really helpful to know someone who's understanding because we both have similar upbringings. She's not judgemental but can point out helpful ways to deal with it. It's a huge relief to find someone else like that.
