Jamie Vander Velden

(MSW, MN, LICSW, #26706, EMDRIA, trained)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker from a small town on the Minnesota/Wisconsin border. I am trained, and have experience, to work with people from ages 0-infinity ♾️. I started in the mental health field 20 years ago, working with individuals in a group home setting. I worked in different settings throughout that time before settling into my career as a mental health therapist, which I have been doing for over 5 years.

I like to help find a way to bring tranquility to people who have suffered, something to help them find balance in their lives. I love to be a part of those small successes with my clients.

Jamie asks smart questions and shares her expertise in a way that helps me think through my challenges. She gets me. After 2 weeks, I'm already emotionally stronger.

Jamie is a fantastic person whom is extremely supportive, if she doesn't hear from you in a couple of days she makes sure that she touches base with you to see how you are.

Jamie is very good at providing help and advice, giving you great methods to help deal with what you are going through. I can not recommend Jamie enough and am extremely grateful for the help and support

Jamie seemed to be able to get my teenage son to open up and talk about issues . Helped him during a difficult time.
