Seeking counseling is your first step towards healing and I am here to support you on that journey. My name is Jaime Williamson and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I earned my Master of Social Work degree in 2009 from Dominican University School of Social Work and have enjoyed working with individuals in community and hospital-based settings for over ten years.
I specialize in working with individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, grief & loss, as well as life transitions, acute or chronic stress, self-esteem, and relationship issues.
My approach is gentle and encouraging. I believe that all individuals have within them their own unique strengths and abilities to face life’s challenges. I work to help you overcome obstacles and bring about the changes necessary to live well.
By creating a warm, non-judgmental environment, I provide a safe place for you to share your story and talk about the challenges you are facing. As human beings, we are made to connect with others. It is through that connection that we begin the journey of healing.
In my practice, I focus on building a supportive therapeutic relationship with you as a foundation for healing, change, and growth to occur.
I use a specialized and integrated approach to meet your needs. I commonly use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which has been proven effective to help reframe thought processes and negative thinking patterns. I also use psychodynamic and solution focused modalities such as mindfulness, narrative therapy, and positive psychology.
My goal is to work with you to help you better understand yourself and resolve current challenges. As a clinician, I help provide insight and promote self-awareness. My aim is to help you begin the journey to self-empowerment so you can begin to make the necessary changes to reach your goals and live well.
