Jamie Lippincott, LPC

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Mercer University.  Over the past 6 years, I have had training in an inpatient hospital for both mental health and substance abuse issues and ran group therapy at the Intensive Outpatient and Partial Hospitalization level of care.

As a therapist, I believe putting you, the client, first and letting you be the expert in the room is key to a successful session. Like my clients, I understand what it feels like to sit in that chair; I too have anxiety. Through solution focused, cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, and strength-based techniques, I hope to help you work through and move forward in your life.
I specialize in working with young adults and adolescents utilizing individual, couples and family therapy to help manage:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Self-Esteem/ Self-Image
  • Developing compassion for oneself
  • Setting healthy boundaries in your relationships
  • LGBTQIA issues
  • Identity issues
  • Managing stress
  • Managing life transitions
  • Trauma & abuse
  • Non suicidal self-injury
  • Suicidal behaviors

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, what is it, is it right for you?

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. DBT is a common technique used with individuals who have difficulty managing and regulating their emotions. The goals of DBT are: to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope, regulate your emotions, and improve relationships with others.

As a certified dialectical behavioral therapist (C-DBT), I will be able to help you learn the four main principles of DBT: Mindfulness, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Emotion Regulation. The benefit of DBT is to help resolve the contradiction between self-acceptance and change to bring about positive changes within yourself.

So, if you are struggling with: finding/ improving coping skills, developing effective ways to manage and express your strong emotions, then DBT will be the right fit for you.
