Jamie treats children aged 6 and older. She also specializes in marital counseling, addictions and grief counseling. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Resilience Theory, and the Strengths Based Approach are her main techniques, although she will pull from several resources to meet the client where they are at. Currently, Jamie is becoming more skilled in EMDR and the Thought-Filled Therapy technique to help with PTSD. She knows that not every client will present with the same needs and she appreciates the uniqueness that each client offers.
At Indiana University South Bend, she earned her Bachelor of General Studies (2011) and Master of Social Work (2017). She is a licensed social worker. During graduate school, she did her first internship with the public-school system. Her second internship was with Center for Hospice where she learned the art of grief counseling. She has worked for Healthy Families Elkhart County where she discovered she loved the family dynamic and the importance of a strong bond between parents and children, and parent to parent.
Jamie is a busy mom of two girls and an active member in the community; serving on the PTO for her children’s school. In her spare time, she likes to keep active by running, attending the gym regularly and keeping up with home projects.
