Helping You Tap Into Your Inner Wisdom

Hi there, I’m Jaime (she/her)!

Like you, I am resilient. I am a survivor.

I am always learning.

My Story

I know what it’s like to feel stuck and want more out of life. I have felt weighed down by my past and disconnected from my true self. I understand how hard change is and the discomfort that can come from breaking free from unhelpful patterns.

I lived the first part of my life behind a mask of people-pleasing and trying to be what everyone else wanted me to be.  My pathway to becoming an life coach and therapist has not always been easy, but it has been powerful. I have struggled with anxiety, feeling behind in life, trauma, body image and learning to live with chronic pain.

I knew I needed support and took a chance and started working with an amazing therapist. Little did I know that I began the most important healing work of my life: Letting go of societal expectations, trusting my worth, the importance of self-compassion, and living life on my terms.

Making the conscious choice to live a more authentic and peaceful life allowed me to connect to my true self. Instead of always trying to be what my family, friends, or society wanted me to be, I learned to honor what made me feel alive and grounded in life.

As I continue on my healing journey, I’m still learning ways to tend to my overall well-being and self-compassion drives my self-care. I enjoy helping others give voice to the authentic parts of themselves. I know first-hand how this work can change your life.

The Power of Lived Experience

The powerful experiences I had working with compassionate, insightful, and supportive therapists only reaffirmed my calling in life.

For over a decade, I have committed my life to learn various modalities to support clients. Such as counseling, Health at Every Size (HAES), mindfulness, somatic practices, life coaching, and EMDR.

My commitment to my  healing journey and desire to support people through  life’s challenging obstacles continues to inspire and inform my work and healing practices.

The Support You Need

I’m not your sit-back-and-listen coach or therapist. Consider me an active co-creator in your journey. The support I provide is customized to your needs and lived experience.

I support those struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions, limiting beliefs, and other mental health struggles. I also work with clients around ditching diet culture through a Health at Every Size lens.

Our work together will help you better understand yourself, your goals, and how you want to show up in the world. I feel privileged beyond belief that I can help empower, affirm, and support my clients.

I’m a licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate and Certified Life Coach. I received my master’s degree from Antioch University Seattle and completed a 120-hour life coach training program through Seattle Life Coach Training (SLCT).

In My Spare Time

I am committed to social justice advocacy and accessible self-care practices. Some of my favorite practices are being in nature, essential oils and honoring my boundaries. I love dogs, traveling, connecting with friends, documentaries, Bravo,  and spending time with my partner and our two sweet rescue pups. We are all big fans of the beach. 

Thank you again for taking a moment to learn about me, I look forward to working with you!
