I joined MFC recently after spending five years working as a medical assistant in women’s health. I have a long history in the customer service industry and a strong desire to help humans enjoy their journey and get the most out of life. I find happiness in the joy of others and consider myself lucky to do that professionally. I am passionate about organization and live by the mantra “smarter, not harder,” and I believe a great system will constantly improve it.
My family is the best thing I get to enjoy in life. I have two children in elementary school who are involved in sports, dance, 4H, and anything else my husband and I agree to, which most recently includes two hermit crabs. We also have a dog, DAX, a well-blended breed we rescued during the Pandemic – Rescue is genuinely the best breed, and we are so thankful for the incredible rescue agencies in Pennsylvania. I married into a dairy farming family who breeds beautiful Brown Swiss and has taught me, a “city girl,” how to keep up with them.
We spend much of our spare time working, milking, and preparing for dairy shows. I’m proud to be an aunt to the greatest nieces and nephews and enjoy spending as much time with them as possible! When we aren’t focused on work, animals, or activities, I love to read, kayak, travel (any beach is fine, but I LOVE the ocean) & adventure, craft, watch hockey games & bake.
I am so glad to be a part of anyone’s quest for health and happiness, and I look forward to being a helpful interaction along the way. -Jamie
Whether you are suffering from panic attacks, obsessive – compulsive disorder, or generalized anxiety we have therapists who use evidenced-based treatments, such as cognitive-bahavioral therapy, to help you.
Many individuals feel like they are at war with their bodies. Whether it’s feeling shame, guilt, or giving ourselves critical comments about our bodies, we can be our own worst enemy. Our therapists can help you feel at peace with your body and learn to be kind to yourself.
Caregiving for a loved one can be challenging even in the best of circumstances. Often we don’t think about how the caregiver needs support, too. If you are experiencing burnout, our therapists can teach you skills to help you cope.
Depression and anxiety are extremely common, but often under-diagnosed by medical providers during pregnancy and postpartum. Our providers have specialized training to help women with anxiety and depression in this specific period in their lives.
Depression, one of the most common mental health disorders, is very treatable. Our therapists are specially trained to help individuals with depression get back to feeling like themselves again.
Struggling with infertility can be so difficult, especially if no one around you has experienced something similar. It can feel like an isolating journey and people find they often need support to navigate the emotional aspects of the process. Our therapists have specialized training to help you.
Move Forward Counseling is an inclusive practice where we want the LGBTQIA+ community to feel welcome and supported. Whether you are unsure how to embrace your identity, are having relationship issues, or need extra support from a non-judgmental person, we have therapists who can help.
Life transitions encompass many things, including starting or ending a romantic relationship, changes with work or school or making any big life change, such as a move. Often we underestimate how these changes will affect us emotionally until we find ourselves struggling with the ups and downs of the life transition.
While we don’t provide couples counseling at Move Forward, many individuals seek counseling to discuss how they can have healthier relationships. Our therapists can help you learn new ways of communicating, setting boundaries, and other ways to have more positive relationships with others.
Trauma symptoms and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be debilitating for many who experience it. Recovery from trauma is possible and we have therapists who can help.
Moving into adulthood brings its own set of challenges. You may feel pressure to have a “career” or find your life partner. You may be unsure of making these big life decisions and may feel lost because you no longer have school or other adults in your life telling you what you should choose.
The period of adolescence can be exciting, but also challenging for many teens. Difficulties with friends, school, anxiety, depression, cutting, and substance abuse are all common issues for this group. Due to a lack of life experience, teens may not know how to manage these problems which is why therapy can be especially helpful.
