About Me

Life transitions, challenging relationships, unhelpful habits, stress, or any change of circumstances can contribute to a cycle of anxiety, depression, grief, and other challenges. Left unaddressed, tough issues like these can stress the coping skills of anyone. For some, choosing therapy can be an important self-honoring choice in support of healing and reaching goals. Working with an experienced therapist can help reframe issues into an invitation for gentle self-care, reflection, effective action, learning and growth.

I am trained in many counseling theories and interventions, mainly drawing from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Techniques, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. But my most important role is to be fully present and hold a compassionate, safe space for you to show up as you are. You are the expert on you. My intention is to support an exploration of what is going on, where you want to go, and how to get there—as well as offer helpful tools and along the way. This includes working with clients to identify and change habits of thought and action that may be holding you back from making satisfying progress in your life. I work with individuals to help effect inner and outer change. I am only licensed to work with clients in the state of California.

I look forward to working with you!

Written by S.H. on Sep 10, 2019 after counseling with Jamie for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

I’ve worked with Jamie for a number of months and he’s helped me with everything that life has thrown my way. Difficulty in work, my relationship, and other stresses that I’ve struggled to navigate by myself. He listens and he helps. I always feel validated and supported. He gives me tools and perspectives that have made a big difference in my overall happiness.

Jamie is so easy to open to with his pleasant and non-judgmental attitude. He provides tremendous guidance, insight, and unique perspectives on the issues I deal with. Always responds quickly no matter when I reach out to him!
