WHAT'S YOUR STORY?

 
Cheerful Woman with Glasses

The Pleaser

You pride yourself on being a good person and a hard worker, but you tend to take things personally or worry about what people think of you. You're often afraid of making people mad and you assume the worst. You've called yourself 'weak' and wish you had more confidence. You've tried setting boundaries, but it never seems to stick and you end up taking it all back. Then you beat yourself up about THAT and no amount of mantras or affirmations can rescue you from the shame spiral. You long to access your inner power and be a strong, confident boundaries badass. 

Programmer in Office

The Overthinker

You constantly second-guess yourself, especially at work. You have a hard time believing positive feedback and constantly feel like you're waiting for the other shoe to drop. You have trouble saying you're happy because what if you jinx it or you think, 'what if something bad happens?' You wonder why everyone else seems to be able to be calm, cool, and collected in social situations while you feel like an anxious mess. You've tried meditation apps and some journaling, but nothing truly quiets that voice in your head that says you're not enough. 

Young Woman Making Notes

The Good Girl

You've been called 'old soul.' You never gave your parents any trouble. You walked the line and never pushed your edges. You work hard. You are able to anticipate the needs and moods of others. Now you look around and feel like you're in a life that doesn't fit or feel like you. You've read some self-help books and attempted therapy before, but life still doesn't feel fulfilling. You know deep down you were meant for more and you want to let your freak flag fly...or at least start pulling it out occasionally.

Texting on Mobile Phone

The Self-Denier

You kick ass at work, but romantic relationships are another story. You analyze every text and when they don't call, you fear you did something wrong. You're prone to Situationships, F-Boys, or the emotionally unavailable. You've tried to be the "cool chick" who's easy, breezy and laid back, but it never lasts and only seems to feed your biggest fear of being needy. You do a lot for your love interest/partner secretly hoping they will reciprocate, but that only leaves you feeling resentful and unseen. No amount of yoga or tarot card readings have been enough to soothe your anxiety and you just want to feel secure and confident in yourself.

THAT'S WHERE I COME IN

Hi there! I'm Jamie. If you're looking for a therapist in Illinois or Florida who affirms all of you while holding you accountable to making the changes you long for, that's me.

"Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death!" 

 

That line from the musical Auntie Mame has haunted me for 25 years. I am obsessed with helping others to live lives of joy, fulfillment, and connection. I can't stand the thought of anyone missing out on the party so I have devoted my life to showing others the way.
