Her graduate training included utilizing evidence-based therapeutic techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy. At NCMA, Jamie works with individuals who are interested in short-term therapy to overcome mental health struggles, conducts long term therapy for clients with deeper rooted needs, helps patients and families to integrate and implement recommendations from neuropsychological evaluations, and provides neurocognitive rehabilitation for clients with cognitive disorders.

She also provides Executive Function Coaching to help people improve their abilities to focus, organize, plan, manage tasks, and solve problems in their daily lives through a semi-structured, collaborative, and individualized approach.
Jamie has extensive experience as a neuropsychometrist (neuropsychological testing technician), working with individuals across the lifespan. This exposed her to a variety of clinical diagnoses such as neurodevelopmental disorders, neurocognitive issues, substance use, and mood disorders. She also has worked on the administrative side of neuropsychological practice, training neuropsychometrists, developing operational systems, triaging patients for evaluation, and assisting in the creation of targeted clinics for the evaluation of ADHD, ASD, and Mood Disorders.
Jamie strives to create a warm and welcoming environment for clients to begin their therapeutic journey. She uses a holistic approach to deeply understand all aspects of an individual and how those different facets interconnect with the client’s goals.
