My Specialties:

Therapy Session
Trauma & PTSD

Trauma & PTSD are often thought of only if you have been in serious situations like a car accident. However, there are many types of trauma and with the uniqueness of each person, what is traumatic to one person may not be to another. My training with EMDR ( Eye Movement Desensitization & Re-processing) and Somatic Experiencing (SE), both for the treatment of trauma, allows me to help you process any thing that may have been too much, too soon, or not enough for you. Using this approach we will work to better integrate your mind and body and help you re-train your nervous system (or fight, flight, and freeze response) to be more flexible. 


Sometimes it can feel like we speak a completely different language from our partner! That is why communication is often the main reason couples report coming to counseling.  I want to help you communicate more efficiently and effectively. Even if you are not in a relationship, it is important to be able to communicate your needs and understand how to truly listen to others'. We will work together to find positive and practical ways to communicate while on the road to healing.


I believe in educating about and honoring your emotions. Even the ones that are overwhelming and intense. Healing takes courage and that often means getting to the root of emotions that we may have suppressed or pushed aside. The safe haven of counseling is the perfect space to explore these feelings.


I believe at the core of humans is the desire for relationships and connection. However, relationships can be messy and cause you to feel more confused than connected. I want to help you thrive in all relationships in your life, regardless of your current interactions.  I think we find healing when we feel connected and at peace with the most important people in our lives. Healing and being vulnerable takes courage and commitment to the relationship with yourself and others.

Women's Health

I have a passion for helping women heal. Especially, women who are experiencing Perinatal or Postpartum Mood & Anxiety Disorders, PMS or PMDD, menopausal symptoms, PCOS, Endometriosis, or other hormonal health problems. These issues are often considered "taboo" or not talked about. This can leave women feeling isolated and alone. I want to change that and help you navigate these issues in a healthy way.

Life Transitions

 Healing is a life-long journey that can take many unexpected twists and turns. If you have ever made a change in your life, you know it is not easy. Sometimes, just the fear of change can hold us back from taking that next step. Whether it is a career change, move, graduation, marriage, baby, loss, grief, family dynamics, or something in between, I believe we handle these transitions best when we walk through them with someone who will truly listen.

Fellow Helpers/Healers

I have a passion for working with fellow helpers/healers who need a safe place to prioritize their own self-care. Whether you are a nurse, doctor, social worker, counselor, therapist, teacher, first responder, emergency service worker, or other helper/healer, I would be honored to hear your story. The services you provide are imperative and so is your own mental health. I want to help you navigate the responsibility that comes with these roles in a healthy way. 


Jaime Duke, MAC, LPC, NCC

Cheesecake, figs, and pinot noir.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, music, traveling, cooking, and dreaming of owning a puppy (that never ages). 

Asking for help isn’t easy. It can feel scary, painful, and overwhelming. Yet, I believe it is worth the risk when you know you are not alone. That’s why when you are ready to ask for help, I am here to provide a trustworthy, safe, and collaborative counseling relationship. I have successfully helped others with trauma/PTSD, anxiety, negative thoughts, PMDD, and other women's issues.


I offer a comforting, warm, and genuine atmosphere, and use a variety of interventions. I also enjoy incorporating education, tools, and humor to help you feel at ease. Whether you have goals in mind or aren’t sure where to start, my goal is to work together so you feel safe, heard, and excited about life.

On a personal note, I was a single parent for nine years and have learned that life is best lived with others who care.  That's why, I would be honored if you asked me for help.
