Therapist in San Diego, California Jamie Picker, LCSW

Jamie Picker, LCSW

I have been a practicing Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 1981. I like to be interactive, practical and creative to give patients increased understanding and awareness of their issues, to increase coping skills to alleviate distress, to practice new behaviors, and offer support and convey understanding. I seek to understand each individual holistically, including their backgrounds and the strengths they already possess to provide an individualized approach. Establishing a strong alliance with clients is essential to getting the most out of therapy and creating lasting change.

My clinical experience is very varied with 30+ years with mostly San Diego County Behavioral Health Services where I was Program Manager for an emergency psychiatric service for children and adolescents. I have also worked in private practice for over 20 years part-time. I have trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy, Gestalt therapy, and have experience using many techniques such as CBT, exposure therapy, reality therapy, meditation/mindfulness to name a few.

I am happy to work with all ages, individuals, couples and families
