Jamie came to Counseling Psychology by way of Student Affairs. Prior to his work as a therapist, Jamie worked on college campuses to provide programming and resources to historically underserved students. Jamie tries to keep connected with his background in student development and commitment to social justice. His research has focused on the use of an intersectionality framework in counseling psychology, system barriers to treatment for marginalized communities, and LGB peoples’ experiences of community.

Jamie takes an interpersonal approach to therapy, informed by feminist and multicultural theoretical backgrounds. In the past he has worked largely with non-traditional, international, and LGBTQ/TGNC clients. He is also interested in the training of new therapists, and is involved in the supervision of intern and practicum students within MHS.

Jamie values work-life balance and tries to maintain hobbies outside work. He regularly plays table-top and board games with friends, enjoys finding good food in Madison, and likes to travel when he can.
