Meet Jayme

If you weren’t a mental health professional, what would you be doing?

I would be doing something outside. I love to build things.

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

As a child, I wanted to become a famous explorer. I was really into Indian Jones.

What is your favorite way to move your body?

My favorite physical activities are canoeing, kayaking, and swimming.

What do you do for self-care/self-love?

My favorite form of self-care is disconnecting from the world and going off into the wilderness.

Other than mental health, what is something you’re passionate about?

I’m a dad, and nothing matters more to me than my children’s wellbeing and development.

Who is your ideal client?

My ideal client is any client willing to work for the change(s) they desire.

Why do you like being a therapist?

I enjoy being a therapist because it allows me to help create meaningful change in other people’s lives, which in turn causes meaningful change in my life. I also like to figure out how things work, and the complexity of someone’s life is always unique.

What is something you wish people knew about therapy?

I wish people knew the many ways and areas that therapy could benefit them. It is important to know that growth and self-improvement are reasonable, responsible, and never-ending for productive adults.

Why/how can people benefit from therapy?

The ways that people can benefit from therapy are endless. Therapy can assist in many desired changes and help people move forward with the life they want to live.

What is something you’d like clients to know about you (or how you work)?

I am a collectivist. I use many therapeutic models and often combine methods when necessary to customize a treatment method to the client and their needs. I will be compassionate, but therapy is not about being comfortable; it’s about achieving change, which requires work.

What does success in therapy look like to you?

For me, the best results from therapy would be a client living their best life after achieving the desired changes.

What are your thoughts about the “stigma” of therapy?

Our society has made great strides against the stigma of therapy. However, there are still those who hold on to that stigma. For the clients who still worry about this stigma, I say, let your success do the explaining for you.
