Hi! I’m Jaima and I’m so glad you’re here.  I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my Bachelors Degree in Social Work from the University of Kansas. Go Jayhawks! I later received my Masters Degree in Social Work from the University of South Florida and my clinical license in 2011. I am also EMDR certified and an EMDR Consultant in Training, offering consultation to EMDR trained therapists working towards certification. Through my own life and work in hospital, early intervention, adoption, and private practice settings I have seen how messages of unworthiness, unlovability and self-doubt that may have developed in childhood can be paralyzing as an adult.  It’s why I got trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), a form of psychotherapy that helps people overcome distressing events. My passion is to help you in this work of healing and transformation, so that you can be the partner, friend, colleague, and parent that you deeply desire.

What is Maitri? Maitri is a Sanskrit word meaning, "unconditional friendship with oneself." This is incredibly hard for many of us, as we are more likely to spend time putting ourselves down. But Maitri allows us to cultivate a relationship where we no longer look to the external world to solve our problems; rather we start to recognize that we can relax and feel at home in our own body and mind. So that's why I named this practice Maitri Therapy, because this is my hope for you.
