Compassionate. Smiley. Spirited.
Jamie Briscoe has earned Master’s degrees in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Grace College and Theological Seminary. Jamie has worked with children, teenagers, and adults, specifically with adjustment, grief, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, relationship conflict, and ADHD. Jamie’s theoretical orientation is Adlerian, with emphasis on how social development begins with the family of origin. She believes each client is unique and creatively works to help clients meet the goals they desire during the counseling journey. She utilizes coping skills such as deep breathing and mindfulness with clients when appropriate. Jamie utilizes non-directive play therapy, theraplay, and sandtray with children. Jamie’s highest priority for each client is to create a safe space to process and build a strong therapeutic alliance. She utilizes research-based treatment during counseling sessions, collaborating with the client to create new ways of coping, and working through feelings and emotions from childhood through present day.
Prior to work as a mental health clinician, Jamie began working as an elementary school teacher for several years before staying home with her children when they were small. She loved teaching, but felt she wanted to help her students succeed more in their mental health and well-being than meeting academic standards. Jamie is fulfilling a dream that began during her personal cancer battle to help others in painful places with wisdom and comfort she received in her journey. Jamie’s husband, Chad, is an Athletic Director at Grace College and Seminary, and their family enjoys spending time at Grace athletic events during the school year. They have two daughters and love traveling to different places as a family. Jamie enjoys water and snow sports and taking family bike rides. Jamie and her family are committed to their faith and volunteer in their church and community
