Empaths are highly sensitive to others’ emotions. Sometimes, empaths feel anxious or sad, but don’t know that it is someone else’s emotion they are feeling. Learning to work with this gift of intuition can benefit an empath, helping them to set healthy boundaries and not take on so much toxic energy.
We all go through many traumas throughout a lifetime, big and small. When we go through a trauma, our brain functions in fight, flight or freeze mode - effectively shutting off the complex ``computer system`` in our brain. Therapy reboots your brain, so that you can get unstuck from trauma.
When we buy into anxiety-inducing thoughts, they increase our suffering by 99%. Let’s learn to untangle our thoughts and feelings, and learn to be mindful about what we choose to believe. There are some easy strategies that can help alleviate unnecessary suffering and anxiety.
We all have a soul and a spirit, which need healing from traumatic life events. It is important to incorporate some form of spirituality into our healing, whether you are Buddhist, Jewish, Christian, or another spiritual background. Contemplative prayer, mindfulness and meditation help to transform negative thought patterns and are clinically proven to decrease depression and anxiety.
Highly sensitive people are often empathic and highly intelligent. They are perceptive about their environment, and can often absorb negative emotions from other people. HSP’s will need to set healthy boundaries and maintain a steady self-care routine in order to function at their best capacity, and to maintain optimal emotional and mental health.
Infidelity & affairs contribute to shame, and the inner critic. When we can’t share what is happening, we internalize our pain and isolate from others. This leads to a build up of toxic shame and self-doubt. Therapy provides a safe place to work through these intense and complex situations.
Learn how to set boundaries in unsafe relationships, how to communicate clearly and respectfully, and how to leave a toxic relationship.
Divorce is one of life's top three stressors. It is very unsettling and many people will feel like their word has been shaken and they're not okay. We can’t walk through these stressors alone and expect to make a strong comeback. We need a safe, supportive counselor and friends in order to fully process what happened, grieve the loss, and come out the other side of this stronger and healthier.
Life transitions tend to bring up thoughts patterns that challenge our personal and professional growth. Learn how to grow out of these thought patterns through therapy.
I can't recommend Jayma enough. I saw her regularly for a couple of years when I was going through some major personal and professional transitions and the death of my mom. She was a calming presence, which is what I needed on many days. But she was not afraid to challenge me to think more deeply and commit more fully. I credit my work with her for saving my marriage and making the past two years with my husband better than the first 12. She also helped me grieve when my mother died, and she encouraged me to make the changes I wanted in my career, something I had wanted to do for years. Jayma is kind, compassionate and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a therapist, spiritual mentor and soft place to fall.
Jayma has such a genuine compassion for her clients, it is very easy to share with her! Highly recommend her!!
My boyfriend and I have seen Jayma many times now and I would say she is an extremely helpful therapist. She will get to the root of issues you may never knew you had or never knew how to address properly. She has many therapeutic techniques on how to solve certain issues too. I highly recommend her for anyone!
A Boulder Body Mind Spirit Counseling has helped me immensely. I have learned a lot about myself and I've learned different ways to care for myself #selfcare. Learning to take care of myself was a revelation, and I'm thankful every day that by His divine plan I found A Boulder Body Mind Spirit Counseling when I was searching for a counselor.
Surfing through and finding a therapist can be extremely challenging! I am extremely thankful to have come across Jayma via referral from a reliable source. Jayma was extremely open minded, knowledgeable about different therapy techniques and approaches, application of ideas, and facilitating the therapeutic process necessary to navigate challenging issues with no essence of judgment. She is awesome about guiding you to your own understanding and not projecting personal values or opinions on you. She used multiple sources to support the information she used. I spent multiple months with Jayma for therapy and was extremely thankful for the safe haven and impactful process. I highly recommend her.
My husband and I benefitted so much from our counseling sessions with Jayma. We had seen a few counselors in the past but we never stayed with them because we didn't feel a connection. But when we found Jayma, we were happy to have finally found a counselor who understood us and who cared about our marriage. She helped both of us learn new ways to communicate with one another to avoid conflict. We grew so much as a couple as well as individually in the 8 months that we were with her. We are so grateful to God that he put us on the path to find her.
There are many who are solely educated as therapists. Jayma is both educated AND gifted! Truly amazing!
My work with Jayma deepened my faith when I was about to give up on it because of many Christians being judgmental and exclusive. Jayma's love for all people exemplifies the teaching of Jesus Christ. My life was profoundly changed for the good.
The counseling services provided by Jayma were nothing short of astounding! Her keen insight into my son's behavior and character allowed her to effectively reach our son where he was at in his life. We were not able to do this on our own, but with her wisdom and guidance, he began to communicate and share his heart with us all. Our son has opened up once again as the precious and kind young boy we know him to be. The transitions of our family were difficult, but he was able, with Jayma's experience, to come out on top! Thank you so very much for helping us to restore this young boy as a happy, healthy and effective child. You are such a gift in this community! Blessings to you!
Jayma came into our lives during a transitional stage. I went through a divorce and sought counseling, initially to help my son. Jayma counseled and impacted both of our lives in a powerfully positive way. She was able to reach my son in ways I wasn't able to. When he desperately needed to work through his own emotions and broken heart. I am so grateful to her for that. She taught me to be a better parent and helped my son and I communicate better. She taught me how to manage my anger and how it can work for me, instead of against me.
Jayma is a tremendous counselor, indeed Heaven-sent. She is patient and dedicated; her loyalty is out of this world. She was indeed a huge part of my healing. She blessed me with tools to use daily, such as somatic processing, Gestalt therapy techniques, and inner healing. I would give her a 10!
Jayma is compassionate, attentive and person centered. She will never make you feel like a "client" who is a commodity that will help pay her bills, but she will become a trusted fellow traveler on the path alongside you. She brings in a variety of tools to meet your needs. I still use the skills and tools I learned from this trusted healer.
