About me

My name is Jamie Matthews and I have been working as a counselor since 2007, and really enjoy helping people reach their treatment goals. I believe that counseling is about change, and believe people can change any behavior not working in their life. I started my career working in community mental health where I worked with individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, and gained a great deal of experience helping individuals manage symptoms of hallucinations, delusions, severe depression symptoms, and severe anxiety symptoms. From 2007-2015 I did mainly group counseling sessions, and some individual counseling sessions using evidence based practices. From 2015-2021, I have worked as an Outpatient Therapist where I have worked with children, adults, and families in a community mental health setting.
Currently, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to assist people in staying present focused and learning the role thoughts, feelings, and behaviors play in the development and maintenance of family health, relationships and mental health problems. I do believe that it is important to learn to live your day-to-day life before discussing past experiences that may be holding people back. I am a strong believer in being solution focused, and learning ways to focus on current issues. When working with me I will not try to push you to share past experiences, but only work on current behaviors that are not working for you in your life. I also will not try to stop you from sharing things from your past that have been bothering you because I understand the value of having someone to hear and really listen to your needs. I look forward to working with you.

Jamie is the most relatable, down to earth therapist I have had (and I’ve had many)!

Jamie is a godsend! I did a week or two of journal entries ahead of our first session and we clicked immediately! Even several sessions in she remembers random things about me! I appreciate her very much!!

Hero, best listener I've ever met.

Before finding Jamie, I was in a very negative head-space. I needed help navigating my emotions and my situations. I feel so much more grounded and focused on the important things now. I've learned to let go of small things and allow myself to feel emotions as they come. I'm no longer controlled by my anger and anxiety. I can't thank Jamie enough.

I feel like she really understands who I am, at my core, and I can tell her anything.

I have only had two sessions so far but it is amazing how well this site can match you with a therapist. I’m not exaggerating when I say it is a perfect fit. Incredibly intelligent, funny, and a relaxing vibe all come together to make a great therapist and great therapy sessions with her. I’m trying to convince my wife to get an accountants so she can see her full time because I trust her that much with my mental health and also my family’s mental health.
