I'm a truth telling, eternally curious introvert with a passion for all things neuro-psych and holistic minded. My personal journey towards becoming a mental health counselor began over 20 yrs ago as I birthed my three children, and my first business Jamie Love Photography.
It was first through observing the psychological states of my clients while photographing them, and consciously journeying through the ever changing emotional waves of motherhood that I found a passion for psychology. It was later through experiencing major physical injuries, grief, deep loss and subsequently navigating the waters of CPTSD recovery that I was shown a path of liberation through the art of flower essence therapy, somatic therapy, kundalini yoga, HeartMath, mindfulness meditation, IFS parts work and pranayama. I am now certified to offer these modalities to others as well.
Concurrent with my coaching work here at Elevated Alchemy life, I am pursuing my Master's Degree as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor through the Chicago School of Professional Psychology and am set to graduate in Fall of 2024.
Its with joy and humility in my heart that I choose to serve others as they too navigate life's ever changing and sometimes tumultuous tides. I believe that is through taking an honest, direct look at how we think, feel, believe and behave in response to the world around us that we are able to ask the important questions which not only challenge our weaknesses but also help us to discover our strength, untapped inner resources and ultimate resilience.
