Who Can Jamie Help?
Jamie specializes in treating anxiety disorders such as generalized anxiety, social anxiety, separation anxiety, performance anxiety, and panic disorders in children (over 10 years old) and teenagers. She uses cognitive behavioural therapy to help her clients recognize and challenge unhealthy beliefs, thoughts, and feelings.
Living with low self-esteem can harm your mental health and lead to problems such as depression and anxiety. Jamie uses cognitive behavioural therapy to help her clients recognize the negative beliefs they have about themselves and challenge them by focusing on the person’s positive traits.
Finding out about and living with a chronic illness can sometimes cause an individual to feel lonely, hopeless, depressed and anxious. Jamie provides a comfortable and non-judgemental environment to help her clients express the difficult feelings that come with being diagnosed with a chronic illness.
Depression can cause an individual to feel overwhelmingly sad, hopeless and demotivated. Jamie uses cognitive behavioural therapy to help people living with depression challenge harmful negative thoughts and beliefs, while helping them develop effective strategies to overcome the sadness.
Jamie provides counselling to children and teenagers who have behavioural issues caused by communication difficulties or emotional challenges. Behavioural issues in children and teenagers are often linked to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), conduct disorder, or oppositional defiant disorder (ODD).
Jamie provides a non-judgemental space for couples to work through a variety of relationship issues including lack of intimacy, infidelity, trust issues, parenting disagreements, and poor communication. Depending on the couple’s goals, Jamie may use EFT to improve attachment and bonding.

More About Jamie
Jamie loves doing anything outside from snowboarding in the winter to mountain biking, hiking, and camping in the summer. Recently, her family added a new fur friend to their family. His name is Pepin and he is a springer spaniel.
She have over 10 years experience working as a speech language assistant with various aged children. When she was completing her Speech Language Pathologist Assistant diploma, she volunteered with people who have had strokes who were relearning how to talk. Jamie believes in community involvement and helping the people around us. This led her to complete her degree in Community Rehabilitation and Disabilities Studies through the University of Calgary.
While working with children who have complex needs over the last 10 years, she is empathetic and understanding to what people want and need. From this experience, she wanted to further her ability to connect with people, and began her Master’s of Arts in Counselling Psychology. She believes that we all want to be heard, and sometimes we need a little extra help to figure out how we can grow as individuals.
