Professional statement

Jamie Bloom is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Brooklyn, New York with an office in Brooklyn Heights just steps away from Borough Hall. She has expertise working with adults of all ages on a range of emotional and behavioral challenges including anxiety, depression, stress, and relationship struggles. Jamie especially enjoys working with individuals with trauma histories, helping them gain freedom from the past by taking control of how these life experiences affect their overall emotional and physical health.



Jamie uses a combination of Internal Family Systems, psychoeduation, and mindfulness informed practices that are healing oriented, non-judgmental, and self-empowering. Working with the natural mind-body connection, she combines traditional talk therapy with experiential and behavioral techniques helping her clients to tune in to their thoughts, emotions, and body experiences and gain a deeper understanding of and insight into their whole self. Jamie helps clients identify and access their inner resources and develop healthy coping strategies so that they can make better use of their emotional energy, and feel more balanced, have greater clarity, communicate more effectively, and feel empowered in relationships.

Jamie’s goal is to help clients on their journey of self-discovery to find the change and healing for which they are searching. She is committed to building a warm, supportive and caring relationship with her clients, offering a safe space to explore and attend to their inner world. Her approach is collaborative, and she brings an open-hearted curiosity and deeply felt respect for each client’s present story and past history as well as an appreciation for their resilience and inner strengths. Jamie is a skilled clinician whose years of experience working in an out-patient mental health clinic using varied treatment approaches enables her to effectively create a personalized treatment approach that works for each client
