-- Jamie Brown is a Sister in the Community of Francis and Clare, a certified Holistic Wellness Counselor and Heart of Yoga teacher who has been counseling individuals and couples since 1988. She has an M.A. in Psychology with an emphasis on the Jungian or Transpersonal approach and wrote her Master’s thesis on “The Psychology of Nonattachment in the Bhagavad Gita.” While working on her B.A. in Philosophy, Jamie also studied comparative religions in addition to obtaining certification as a Kriya Yogi. She has been a student of enlightened masters including the Dalai Lama, from whom she received the Empowerment of Padmasambhava in 1989.
Jamie draws upon the wisdom traditions of both East and West in her counseling practice. She counsels from a holistic perspective:
body, mind and spirit – the client as a unique embodied soul seeking wholeness, integration and enlightenment in the context of their particular environment and relationships.
In working with clients Jamie avoids imposing the hierarchical “counselor therapizing the client” model. Rather, just as with teaching her yoga students, she sees her role as that of a supportive friend who is there to walk alongside and encourage them on their own journey of self-discovery.
She seeks to create a safe space where the client can discuss and process their concerns, questions, hopes and fears and offers compassionate, honest feedback with warmth and humor.
Jamie is the Director of Lothlorien House, a non-profit spiritual retreat center in Panama City, Florida where she provides counseling and other pastoral services and teaches yoga, meditation and contemplative prayer. She is very happy to have opened her online clinic at https://www.proventherapy.com/Jamie-584.html
which will allow her to extend her counseling ministry to clients all over the world. Jamie says, “The internet is a worldly manifestation of humanity’s spiritual need for connection and transcendence of physical limitations and political boundaries.
I am excited to be part of www.proventherapy.com
! Internet-based counseling is the wave of the future. It gives people the ability to get the help that they need 24/7 without leaving their home and has already been proven to be more effective than in-person therapy.”
