Dr. Derrick’s clinical approach encourages eyes-open, courageous self reflection tempered with self compassion. Healing isn't complete until we translate insights into action so wise intention, authenticity, and courage are also explored.
She uses therapeutic techniques that identify patterns of thinking and emotion that interrupt happiness. The path to personal growth is challenging yet playful and through dialogue, mindful awareness, self-acceptance, radical honest, imagery, dream content, humor, and a warm welcoming presence, Jamie Derrick guides renewal.
Her unique approach grows out of years of training in academic psychology, Jungian dream work, depth- mindfulness, and body-based wisdom and awareness.
Jamie Derrick has been a licensed psychologist in Idaho [and before that, California] for twenty years. She graduated from Stanford University and completed clinical residencies in the Yale Medical School, Stanford Student Counseling Center, and UC-Berkeley Psychology Department.
Dr. Derrick is a warm, welcoming faculty member at University of Idaho. She has taught courses on human development, emotion, and mindfulness.
Jamie is certified through the UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center. She offers retreats, drop-in classes, and mindfulness-based affinity groups where mindful sharing can help heal social wounds. She founded and runs a mindfulness program at University of Idaho.
Mindfulness supports dropping below the surface and working with the inner critic to discover our deepest truths and intuitive wisdom. Jamie's relational mindfulness and affinity groups support authentic sharing and social healing.
“I cannot describe how wonderful it is to have your lovely voice guide my mind and body into a relaxed state in the middle of the day. If there is any way to continue the Pod-Casts, I (and many others) would be grateful! .”
“Jamie explained meditation in a way that finally made sense.”
“There is no question that I receive a benefit each time I attend. I go back to the office more at ease than when I left. The sense of peace I feel/receive at the sessions is quite real and tangible and is something I appreciate very much.”
“The half hour is a little oasis within the week. I am so much more focused when I return to work.”
