My Approach to Helping
Hello! My name is Jaime Keel, I am a licensed clinical social worker in New York, and I have been practicing as a clinical psychotherapist with youth, families, and adults in my community for eight years in both outpatient academic settings.
I consider myself a proud ally of the LGBTQAI+ community; having worked with many individuals within the community, I have developed a deeper understanding of the unique struggles faced at the intersection of gender, sexuality, and mental health. I believe that all struggles are equally important, and my therapeutic style focuses on acceptance and relationship building.
I must work together with the people I serve to determine what method of treatment or therapy is most appropriate. I want to empower everyone I work with to understand better and control your treatment. You may continue to work on developing skills and bettering yourself even after treatment has ended. Seeking help is never easy, and I hope to make the experience as positive and judgment-free as you and everyone deserve!
