Jamie Diamond, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Accepting new clients Monday to Friday

My name is Jamie Diamond and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. In my ten years of licensed practice, I’ve worked with adolescents, adults and families.

 

I’ve focused on lessening anxiety, depression, grief, loss, family difficulties, and the effects of trauma, or a recent crisis. As a trained and non-judgmental therapist, you will find me warm, compassionate and perceptive.

 

However you feel, it’s okay to feel that way. That we connect may be as important as what we connect about. I believe that for people to make meaningful progress, it’s best to explore issues and solutions together and to arrive at treatment plans, goals and strategies that fit and move at your pace. 

 

Some of the evidence-based practices I use include solution–focused brief therapy (a goal directed approach that focuses on solutions rather than problems) CBT (changing the way you think to change the way you feel), and motivational interviewing (exploring a person’s mixed feelings about changing a self-defeating behavior). 

I know how hard it can be to confide in someone and share how you’re feeling. It would be an honor to work with you.
