Jaime grew up in New Jersey and he has been living in New York City for several years. She is currently pursuing her graduate education at New York University. Jaime received her undergraduate degree in Psychology from University of Maryland. Jaime started her career working in Human Resources. After becoming a volunteer advocate for survivors of sexual assault and intimate partner violence, she soon realized her desire to pursue a career in clinical social work.
Jaime worked for a crisis intervention program providing in-home counseling to children and teens deemed to be in acute psychiatric distress, in addition to working with their families. She worked with clients dealing with depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, self-harm, and adjustment disorders. This was an enriching experience, helping Jaime gain more insight into family dynamics, societal pressures, sexual orientation exploration, and pressures added by social media. Through her work, internship, and volunteer experiences, she has had the opportunity to work with a diverse client population. Jaime is excited to be working with adults as she is passionate about the issues today’s adults face, particularly in a bustling city like New York.
Jaime practices self-care by working out, playing with her dog, and rewatching episodes of The Office. She loves outdoor activities, whether it is hiking, kayaking, or just taking a stroll through a park. Living in New York, Jaime is still finding new neighborhoods to explore and restaurants to try.
