Dr. Jamie Spohn

(Psychologist)

About Me

I am a licensed psychologist with over 9 years experience. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults with a wide range of difficulties. I specialize in traumatic brain injury, concussion, depression, anxiety, women's issues, relationship issues, child and adult ADHD, pain, learning, academic, and work difficulties, self-esteem issues, chronic illness, and adjustment to illness and injury.

I believe in treating clients with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My style is empathic and supportive, yet direct. I will challenge my clients to gain more independence and accept responsibility. My primary orientation is cognitive-behavioral, although I do integrate other theoretical orientations on a case-by-case basis. I focus on areas of strength in order to compensate for areas that are not as strong. I prefer a positive approach to problem-solving. I will be sure to treat each case individually and gladly accept your feedback. I look forward to helping you!

Also, just an FYI as there has been some confusion, I typically respond one or potentially two times a day, Monday through Friday. I will not typically respond Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays unless there are special circumstances. This also includes use of the “Urgent” button- this button is only to be used in an immediate crisis situation, meaning a life or death situation where an immediate resource is needed to stay safe. Use of this button over a holiday or weekend will likely result in no response until the next working day, UNLESS the message fits the criteria of a crisis situation. Further, if and when you schedule a live session, I am only doing live text at this point, no video or audio. Live text sessions are scheduled in 30 minute blocks. You are able to schedule one of these per week, plus write in your room as often as you wish and expect a response within 24-48 hours Monday through Friday. Thank you, I look forward to working with you!

Written by A.N. on Aug 10, 2018 after counseling with Jamie for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and anger

I have recommended Dr. Spohn on so many occasions to friends, family, and patients of my own. She has been so wonderful in helping me sort out issues, and work through them. It is so perfect being able to email back and forth, it just fits in my day. As important as mental health is, I was never able to make appointments fit in between work and family, now I can take care of myself without having one more thing to do.

Dr. Spohn takes the time to listen and is attentive what I have going on in my life. She is a person that genuinely cares.

Written by Z.A. on May 30, 2018 after counseling with Jamie for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and family

Dr. Spohn really listens and address all parts of the conversation. I feel like she genuinely cares about what is going on in my life and also me as a person. I have been able to talk to her about cultural issues and she has been very understanding and supportive. She is great to talk to and I feel comfortable doing so.

Written by K.E. on May 03, 2018 after counseling with Jamie for 11 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, and self esteem

I've written so many positive reviews of better help and with Dr. Spohn. I'm so glad I gave it a second chance. I feel really heard by Dr. Spohn, like she actually cares and shows me different ways of thinking that I normally wouldn't come up with myself.

Written by E.L. on Feb 22, 2018 after counseling with Jamie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related, sleeping, and self esteem

To be honest, I was skeptical about signing up at first but Dr. Spohn quickly changed my mind. I made an account and was matched with her but never messaged her and she reached out to me to check in, and it was the push I needed to give this a shot and I am so glad I did. Dr. Spohn is amazing. She's already helped me so much in such a short time and I'm so thankful. She is respectful and kind as well as direct which is exactly what I need. It is very obvious that she truly cares and that is so important. Thank you so much, Dr. Spohn.

I have only counseled with Dr. Spohn for a brief amount of time concerning my self-organization and ADHD issues. She has been a great motivator for me! I am hoping to incorporate into the daily life the techniques of dealing with ADHD that Dr. Spohn has recommended me. Very professional and knowledgeable.

Written by M.A. on Oct 12, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, and self esteem

She is so great! Always says the most helpful things!

Written by A.S. on Aug 31, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 2 weeks

Dr. Spohn is fantastic. She is very personable, very kind, and really gets to the point and tells you the truth - which is what you want. She's very smart and able to extrapolate information, and presents it to you in a way that you would understand. At the same time she is very kind and takes the time to ask about your day. I highly recommend Dr. Spohn.

Written by D.A. on Aug 07, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, sleeping, self esteem, and anger

Dr. Spohn is truly in the right profession! She is genuinely concerned about her patients. I appreciate all that she's helped me with.

Written by J.U. on Jul 13, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

It's been a real pleasure working with Dr. Spohn. I appreciate her non-judgmental attitude, and for listening and assisting me with my issues. I would highly recommend her.

Written by V.A. on Jun 23, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 10 months

Dr. Spohn is definitely getting to the root of my issues. I love working with her; she is really helping me get through these difficult times. I hope to get to the root of my problems and find a way to fix them. I'm sure Dr. Spohn will help me get there.

Written by B.A. on Jun 14, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 3 weeks on issues concerning relationship, family, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Dr. Spohn has been a great help to me at this time in my life as I navigate family, marital and relationship issues. She is very responsive, punctual, reliable, honest and has integrity, and just overall very professional. I told her before but I'll say it again, she represents her profession well. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Written by L.E. on Jun 12, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, parenting, self esteem, and career

Dr. Spohn, is compassionate and understanding. She is not judgmental and has given me moral support. In the end, I guess I have no idea what to expect from counselling. Discussing my problems does not solve my problems and I am in no better situation due to discussing these problems with anyone, regardless of it being Dr. Spohn or someone else. It is nice to have a compassionate ear, but I shouldn't have to pay for a friend, though I guess I do have to, because I have no friends to talk to.

Written by S.A. on May 27, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

I trust Dr. Spohn's advice whole heartedly. I look forward to hearing her thoughts and sides to things. She is incredibly kind and sensitive to my own issues and I value that more than anything coming from my background.

Written by T.I. on May 18, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, parenting, self esteem, and anger

Dr. Spohn has been a wonderful ear, a good sounding board, and she asks questions to make me think about all aspects of a situation so I can form a well-educated decision about things. She asks thought-provoking questions to help navigate through very difficult situations. She is kind and non-judgmental. Handles each situation in a very gentle manner :)

Written by G.R on May 02, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 2 days on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, and family

Dr. Spohn was very helpful to me.
She was considerate and I never felt judged by her even after sharing some of my darker triats. Highly recommended.
I only wish there was an option to schedule a Skype session or two through the process. But I can imagine she must be quite busy.

Written by V.I on Apr 30, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family, and self esteem

My online counselling experience with Dr. Spohn has been quite constructive and helpful - she really takes the time to understand what some of my personal struggles and issues are, and helps move me in the right direction in resolving them :) She offers valuable feedback, and is wonderfully supportive, encouraging, and most importantly, perceptive!

Written by C.A on Apr 07, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related, and self esteem

Dr. Spohn has been such a big help to me over the past few months. I was skeptical at first about how much this could actually do for me, but I'm glad I gave it a try. It's been so beneficial and I look forward to our communication. She's helped me feel better, learn and explore more about myself, and is helping me to build my confidence up. She believes in me and that good things can and will come to me and that is so good to know she's so on my side and the side of my growth.

Written by T.A. on Apr 07, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, and parenting

Written by L.A. on Mar 26, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 1 month on issues concerning intimacy-related

This is my first time reaching out for help in this area. Dr. Spohn could not have been more accommodating, understanding and valuable. Very much appreciated.

Written by I.L on Feb 21, 2017 after counseling with Jamie for 2 months

Dr. Spohn has been very responsive, and helpful in guiding my self discovery. She picks up on both positive and negative sides of my story, and points them out, when I often miss one or the other.

Been working with Dr. Spohn for a couple weeks now, and she is amazing, kind and compassionate. I have been unable to attend in-person sessions with anyone in my area because of my anxieties and my chronic pain, and this app and Dr. Spohn have been amazing for my overall health. I am so happy with what we have spoken about and dealt with so far, and I am so glad I was matched with her!

Dr. Jamie Spohn is awesome. She's been helping me through my friendship struggles, depression and anxiety.
