Hello, I am Jaimie, Therapist at Traveling Light Counseling in Port St. Lucie, FL.  

 

As a clinician, my therapy style is kind, understanding, and genuine. I am a down to earth, relatable and easy to talk to type of therapist (at least that's what I'm told), while also being an active listener. I will meet you where you are and only push you when necessary. My goal is to create a balance of understanding, growth, and application of skills to allow a more healthy productive life. 

 

If you find yourself struggling with how to improve situations of anxiety, depression, increase self esteem, or any other emotion that comes with children growing up, I am the right therapist for you. My style involves teaching your child/teen/college student how to look at a situation or behavior and apply a variety of different skills to decrease sadness or nervousness and handle things/situations/people with confidence.

My Specialties

 

I specialize with children, teens, college students and adults of all ages who present or struggle with the following:

  • Children on the spectrum of ASD

  • Children who have Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD) or adults with Attachment Disorder.

  • Children, teens, college students and adults who are having other mental and behavioral issues such as ADHD, ODD, depression and anxiety.  

 

I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy as well as client centered to allow more than “a quick fix” but a long lasting change that allows clients to accomplish their goals on their own time.  In addition to CBT I utilize anger management techniques, play therapy techniques and client centered therapy to have productive and educational therapy experience.  

Background

I grew up in Connecticut and moved to South Florida in 2011.  I received my undergraduate at Palm Beach Atlantic University in 2014 in Psychology with a minor in Spanish.  I received my Masters of Counseling with a concentration in Mental Health in 2014 from Nova Southeastern University.   

 

When I am not working as a therapist, I enjoy being outside, hiking, and swimming at the beach.  I love being outside and doing yoga to help reset my mind!  The reason I got into therapy was to be able to help people who need that extra support.  I love learning how the brain works and learning coping skills and other CBT techniques to aid in restructuring the mind.
