About Me

Hi! I’m Jaime Armstrong.
I’m a Registered Psychotherapist here to make shift happen using a neuroscience therapy approach that is fun & effective.

I don’t believe in coping skills 😬

I’m so glad we got that out of the way 😊 Coping skills sends a message to our brain that we have to live with or manage the experience of something. Our brain is constantly changing so this concept of coping skills is outdated. I don’t believe in coping skills because we know so much more now about our brain than we used to. We know now that we can actually change our brain! So why send a message to tolerate or live with the experience of something when we know now that we can clear it? Knowing this, would you rather manage negative emotions or be free of them?

Using a brain-based approach like Emotional Pain Intervention® and transformational therapy such as Rapid Resolution Therapy®, provides the opportunity for you to stress proof your brain! With all my clients I intend for them to be free of what’s been troubling and to instead experience life in an optimized and more beneficial way. That’s brain science! We cannot change outside influences but we can definitely change the response so it’s working in a more beneficial way. Are you ready to make a shift happen? Because I am!

Credentials

Born in Canada and raised in the States, I was a collegiate level swimmer at Clark University and studied psychology, law and society, and human services as I obtained my Bachelors of Arts degree. I then furthered my education and received a Masters of Arts degree in Counsellor Education, with a focus on mental health, from the University of South Florida. Through more than 15 years in the field I have worked with a lifespan of ages and supervised in various settings such as day treatment, outpatient, residential, youth justice, schools, in home community services, and private practice.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counsellor (inactive status) in the state of Florida and am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I specialize in brain-based and transformational therapy approaches with extensive training in Emotional Pain Intervention®, Rapid Resolution Therapy®, and Brain-Based Clinical Hypnosis. My practice has been a recipient of several Reader’s Choice Awards in Midland, Wasaga Beach, Collingwood, and Blue Mountain since 2019. 

In addition to my clinical skills and experience, I value giving back to the community and demonstrating strong female leadership which has led to becoming President of the Midland & District Business Women’s Association and a business mentor with the Small Business Centre of Barrie, Simcoe County, and Orillia in their Starter Company Plus and Summer Company programs.

When not in session or volunteering, I am often found cheering on the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers during football season, skiing and doing all things winter as the snow comes, and enjoying the views of lakes and beaches in our beautiful Simcoe and Muskoka region.

What I’m Known For

Being Funny

I love a good laugh and hey, did you know humour helps to change the brain? It does! So let’s get laughing!

Being Effective

If you knew how to get this stuff done, you would have done so already! Because of that I believe it’s my job to get it done and your only job is to show up!

Profanity

Sorry mom and dad! It’s true! I curse in session. Never in a vulgar way, just sometimes I talk about times when you used to shit your pants, which always gets a giggle from the little ones 🙂

Being Available

There’s never a waitlist, my hours are flexible, I follow up to see where things land. I’m here for you!

Football

I go hard for the Bucs and Patriots. You may even notice my team love in my office, which is why I appreciate it when sometimes my clients who are opposing fans wear their jerseys just to taunt me!

Storytelling

Stories are another way our brain changes and I’ve got lots of them! It’s never the same session twice. So c’mon! Are you ready to be entertained?!

It can be difficult to take that step to talk to someone, then the question is who? After only a few minutes of talking to Jaime I knew that not only is she someone that really wholeheartedly cares about your well being, but she helps you really refresh your thinking. In a pain free, lighthearted way she helps you have your mind work for you not against you. Really knows her stuff and always feel better after chatting with her!

Jaime is a professional colleague of mine and I would not hesitate to recommend her to my clients. She has a positive, light-hearted spirit, and she brings this optomism into her practice. She is also highly trained in modalities that will help people shift traumatic experiences in their life, and she is dedicated to helping people do just that. It is not easy in our small local area to find someone with her expertise. I highly recommend her if you feel challenged with trauma, and I know you will be in good hands in her care.
