I am a licensed psychologist with over 11 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!

Dr. Spohn has been unceasingly positive, supportive, and smart in helping me confront difficult to discuss issues and convince me to actively support my goals. With her incredibly kind advice, I've been able to achieve things I once thought impossible. She's helped me form beneficial habits and guided me into modifying my incredibly negative thought patterns into better, kinder ones. Jamie has truly been my lifeline at times and I can't imagine how much worse off I would be if I hadn't been working with her.
Dr. Spohn responds to messages within 24 hours (except for weekends). Although she communicates via email rather than phone, she is still able to connect with her clients. She offers great feedback and works collaboratively with her clients to develop goals. Dr. Spohn is very personable, empathic and compassionate. She has a warm and friendly interpersonal style that she combines with her knowledge of best practices to help her clients. I would refer her to friends and family
Dr. Spohn is really good at keeping all the unrealistic negative thoughts from reality and helps me understand what I should really focus on. Thanks, Dr. Spohn!
She is great, very easy to talk to, very responsive, and she was extremely helpful for me. She understood where I was coming from and what I was saying and helped me where no one else could. Thank you
Excellent doctor and woman. She helps me every day through my problems and always has excellent advice and patience and understanding. Some days I don’t know what I would do without her. Would HIGHLY recommend.
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.
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.
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.
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.
She is so great! Always says the most helpful things!
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.
Dr. Spohn is truly in the right profession! She is genuinely concerned about her patients. I appreciate all that she's helped me with.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 :)
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.
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!
Dr. Spohn is an extremely thought provoking counselor! I appreciate how she makes you feel comfortable to speak to her.
Dr Jamie is a great counselor, she is compassionate and intelligent. She helps me see things through when I was confused. She also gives me realistic tool and technique to overcome my struggles. I enjoyed my time chatting with her and would recommend her to anyone.
Dr. Spohn is very nice, friendly, I feel comfortable to talk to her, and she could point the problem out through our conversation which helps me a lot too. I believe I will get better.
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.
Dr. Spohn is great to work with! She is helpful and communicative. It's been a highly valuable experience for me.
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.
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.
Dr. Spohn has helped me over the past four weeks. She's helped me identify some patterns and talked through some different issues in my life. I've found her emails very helpful!
Dr. Spohn speaks to you in a gentle way and really helps you process things troubling. I appreciate the help thus far.
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. Spohn is very insightful, and has good things to say and help with.
I truly appreciated the caring way Dr. Jamie Spohn counseled me during my distressful time. 5 stars for her!
Dr. Spohn is very patient, really listens, and responds with actually helpful advice. I'm so fortunate to have had her care at this most difficult time, and I hope to continue a bit longer.
Dr. Spohn has been more than incredible! My life has changed since "meeting" her. She has really helped me and changed the way I view myself and my relationships with others. Starting these messages have been the best decision I've ever made for myself!
She has been awesome! Kind, caring and compassionate.
Dr. Spohn is wonderful. She is helping me through things I didn't understand which caused a lot of anger and anxiety. But through our conversations, I've been able to build up confidence and make the steps I was afraid to make before.
Dr. Spohn has been very helpful in helping me deal with some personal issues that I've been having.
Absolutely wonderful. It's like chatting with a friend.
Dr. Jamie Spohn is awesome. She's been helping me through my friendship struggles, depression and anxiety. When I talk to her, I feel like I can be completely honest and she doesn't judge me :) She teaches me to be present every day and to be okay with feeling some things that I normally wouldn't be okay admitting to feeling. She's totally, totally a life saver and friend.
Dr. Spohn is a great counselor. She explained things in a way that I understood. The truth. Thank you Dr. Spohn. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Spohn has been a fantastic listener, and has asked some great questions. In asking those questions, it has made me delve deeper into my own past.
I am grateful for the immediate guidance I received. Dr. Spohn clearly understands my struggles, and gives me meaningful suggestions and direction to help me take action.
