As an ABOLITIONIST, I believe in *literally* abolishing police, prisons, & all other forms of state violence. I am happy to discuss in-depth but for now, know that I am most heavily oriented in the work of folx like Project Nia; Interrupting Criminalization; Equitable Care Certification, and Survived & Punished. Of course, I am still deepening my learning and praxis, as one ought. As a RESOURCE MAVEN, I facilitate linkages to information & resources to support people’s wellbeing. Meaning I actually make the calls with you, etc., if wanted/needed. This type of support is a major source of joy for me & something that I’m happy to help with! I’m a FACILITATOR of JOY because, as a Queer, Disabled, Neurodivergent, fat, Gender Nonconforming Black person, I place special emphasis on helping marginalized folx find and (re)create joy in a world that denies us joy. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, my focus is on understanding the environmental and contextual factors at play in your life. I come to therapy with a trauma-informed/healing-centered perspective and work collaboratively with you on determining what kinds of interventions are best suited for your needs. My approach is laid back and can be viewed as “coachy,” meaning I ask questions and provide feedback to help you figure out solutions that will work for your life. I also encourage you to bring your creative and spiritual practices to therapy, so if you want to include art, tarot, crystals, ancestor reverence, etc., we can do that!

I am a licensed psychotherapist in private practice, in California. My approach to therapy is commonsense, based in Dialog, reflective listening, mindfulness based cognitive therapy in conjunction with breath work, journaling and dream journaling and practicing being present. I take my clients seriously, I take our work together seriously, but I don’t take myself too seriously: my primary purpose is to be of service, to be useful to my clients. Our experiences are a map of where we have been, and what it was like. Our ‘stories’ are a mixture of moments we are proud of, grateful for and moments which we would rather not repeat. Through the therapeutic dialog we can come to understand why we make the choices we make and have an opportunity to discover new choices and decide how our story unfolds from the present moment into the future; with courage and kindness toward ourselves we can reach for the life we want to live and be the person we want to be. By the time my clients ‘graduate’ from therapy they will have developed tools which will continue being useful long after our work together has concluded. Personal responsibility and accountability are cornerstones of freedom.

Hello there, I am Jamey. Do you feel like there are just not enough hours in the day, or that you are being pulled in a million different directions? Do you feel like you are struggling to keep up with your relationships, your work, or your health? Sometimes when this happens, we tend to blame the person in the mirror. Fortunately, I am here to help you get over that hump. I strive to help you manage anxiety and avoid burnout. My goal is to help work together with you, and identify what is working well, and not so well, and help you find that balance you and so many others are looking for.

Whether you are overwhelmed, having relationship issues, dealing with trauma, or cycles of anxiety and depression, I am here to help. If you are having trouble with your children, and are seeking input and new techniques, I would be glad to assist you. Seeking therapy can feel scary, but this is the first step towards making the right choice. You deserve a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I will meet you with empathy and compassion in a judgment-free zone, working with evidence-based techniques to help you overcome the hang-ups and habits holding you back.

Few, if any, of us grow up in an environment that perfectly fits our needs. As we grow, we adapt to our surroundings in ways that may run counter to our vitality, health, and happiness. By exploring and understanding the underlying emotional and psychological patterns that shape our lives, we are able to develop choice in whether to engage in patterns and habits that no longer serve us. As a psychotherapist, I provide a curious, and compassionate presence, lending my heart and mind to this process of self-exploration and self-understanding.

As a therapist I have a natural inclination towards understanding and empathizing with others. My genuine care about people's well-being and want to provide support during times of struggle.

It also helps me to experience my own personal growth and healing through therapy, which inspires me to help others in similar ways.
