Jamie Young, PsyD

Staff Psychologist

Jamie (she/her/hers) is a Licensed Psychologist with a Doctor of Psychology in Clinical Psychology from Pacific University. Trained as a "generalist," she has experience working with a wide variety of social, emotional, and psychological concerns that affect students and has over ten years of experience working in university counseling centers. Jamie approaches her work with clients from a multicultural, client-centered framework and believes in honoring each individual's unique experience and circumstances while addressing oppressive systemic forces that impact daily life. Jamie values collaboration in the therapeutic process to help students gain greater self-awareness, cultivate self-compassion, and make meaningful change. Jamie enjoys university work because she is always exposed to new ideas and because she loves investing in students personal, academic, and professional development. She enjoys helping people discover themselves and exploring intersecting identities and how those identities impact an individual's values and life trajectory. In addition to her generalist training, Jamie is committed to supporting survivors of interpersonal trauma through her counseling work and, she also serves on campus as a liaison to the Confidential Advocacy Network.
