I would love to work with your teen and help her shed the pressures of who she thinks she’s supposed to be in order to become the strong young woman she was meant to be.
Jamie is an Denver-area adolescent therapist, but started her career working with teens as an English teacher and over the years has taught grades 8-12. She has spent the past few years as a counselor in a high school working with students and their parents to figure out how to deal with the inevitable difficulties of being a teen. It’s normal for teens to struggle – and it’s important that they learn healthy ways to cope with stress and doubt along the way. Jamie specializes in working with middle and high school girls who struggle with anxiety, perfectionism, body image and disordered eating. She believes that it is vitally important for young women to recognize that their worth is not determined by their performance, their strength is not measured in trophies and their beauty is not judged by the media. Jamie is a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate (LPCC) and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). She graduated with her MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Denver Seminary and has a BA in Women and Gender Studies and Plan II Honors from the University of Texas at Austin.
