Hi, I’m Jamie Rimby!
Being a 20- or 30-something “millennial” is a unique time in your life, and along with it comes its own set of challenges. Adjusting to life after college, lackluster career options, changing relationships with parents, pressure to get married, or feeling that peers from school are “passing you by” are some examples of what we call having a “quarter-life crisis.”
Even though your struggles may be similar to other Millenials, each person has their own story. And as such, effective counseling must be as multifaceted, nuanced, and one-of-a-kind as you. I enjoy working with my young adult clients because I, too, am a member of the millennial generation. Navigating all those transitions and challenges in that short period doesn’t have to be something you do alone. Therapy can help get you on the right path.
Once you decide to start therapy, you and I work collaboratively to determine the direction and pace of our work. The foundation of my practice is a person-centered approach: always striving to understand your point of view, providing validation, and taking a non-judgmental stance, all while being completely genuine.
Over the years, I have been humbled by the power of balance in my professional and personal life. As a clinician, I have infused this concept into my work, providing the validating ear of a trusted confidant and the practical strategies and skills of an experienced therapist, helping you to accept and respect who you are while striving toward the goals you would like to achieve; meeting you where you are in your life right now, then walking with you to where you want to be.
Some common concerns of the clients with whom I work include the following:
A bit more about me — I am a licensed professional counselor in Pennsylvania and a National Certified Counselor. In 2011 I graduated from Arcadia University in Glenside, PA, with a master’s degree in counseling psychology. Since graduation, I’ve been in practice, meeting with clients individually, facilitating groups, and providing educational programming.
Outside the office, I enjoy nature walks, trying cuisine from around the world, attempting to reach optimum caffienation, and making memories with my family and friends. I am owned by two adorable, albeit sometimes mischievous, cats. And like any stereotypical millennial, I make a mean avocado toast.
Jamie Rimby is available for online therapy sessions to anyone in Pennsylvania.

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.
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.
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.
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.
