Jamie Billetdeaux-Deely, MA, LMFT, CMHS, Registered Play Therapist
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Child Mental Health Specialist
“My role as a therapist is to create a safe welcoming space and develop a trusting relationship with people to allow them to show up as their authentic selves. I work with my clients to navigate and work through the challenges they are experiencing, help them feel more comfortable in their own skin, feel more capable and confident and embrace their unique gifts and the things that make them special. In working with children I utilize play therapy, a developmentally appropriate treatment approach, and other creative therapeutic activities. I work to include the caregiver in the process as much as possible. My goal is to help you feel more successful, capable, and confident as a parent while working to support your child’s well-being and development. In working with young children, I often meet with child and caregiver together which supports their attachment needs and developmental needs.
I enjoy working with people of all ages who want to take a look at becoming more of their authentic self. If you are someone who feels you might identify as “sensitive” in a world that is overwhelming, if you experience ongoing anxiety, if you are looking to consider family dynamics and relationships, if you have experienced challenges in life adjustments, loss, or are just wanting to become more fully you but have been having a hard time getting to that on your own I might be a good fit for you.
Clients I work with are often experiencing anxiety/worry/fear, challenges with change/adjustments, loss, grief, trauma, perfectionism, challenges with self-esteem/worth, sensory processing issues, relationship or parent-child issues, issues related to adoption and foster care, and some are learning to better understand their unique qualities such as being highly sensitive.”
