Jamie Doerksen supports neurodiverse individuals in deepening their awareness and self-acceptance. Jamie is trained in relational Gestalt therapy, and has six years of experience working in mental health. Their approach weaves together their lived experience as a neurodivergent person and their training in humanistic, person-centred, trauma-informed therapy. Jamie’s approach is also informed by their passion for learning about and practicing embodiment, the state of being attuned to one’s senses and aware of one’s body.

Jamie values the wisdom of their clients, and views therapy as a collaborative process. They hope to co-create a space where it is safe for clients to process their emotions, and show up authentically. They specialize in working with clients who are looking to heal relationship patterns, and find support in navigating the uncertainty and transitions of life. Jamie’s style is compassionate, creative, gentle, and curious.

Client focus: Young adults, adults; women, gender nonconforming individuals.

Please note: Jamie currently has a waitlist for service.
