Jamie Roda
Self Pay Rate: $99

Jamie Roda, LPC

Philosophy of Care

Jamie Roda is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) who specializes in working with adults experiencing a wide array of mental health difficulties. Many of Jamie’s clients experience concerns related to depression, anxiety, and a desire for lifestyle changes. Additionally, Jamie has extensive experience working with individuals suffering from disorders like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorders. She has found that the clients who experience the most success are willing to work together to identify small goals in order to create meaningful and long-term transformation.

Jamie completed her Master of Science (MS) in Clinical Psychology at Millersville University of Pennsylvania. She was born and raised in Pennsylvania, and her family experienced issues related to divorce, depression, anxiety, substance use/abuse, food and housing insecurities, etc. Jamie found that her desire to improve her own life circumstances led her towards a career that involves helping others. She recently became a first-time parent and is committed to working with individuals to overcome life's obstacles in order to achieve their desired goals in life. Jamie is a firm believer that everyone experiences circumstances in their lives that are outside of their control, and she hopes to help them find ways to work through those obstacles in order to come out better on the other side.

When working with her clients, Jamie prefers to address their presenting concerns in a practical way by collaboratively working with the individual to develop and practice action plans that best meet their needs while incorporating personal values and core beliefs. She believes that healthy change must be a collaborative process that uses "out of the box" styles to meet every person's individual needs. Jamie often uses aspects of evidence-based practices like dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and mindfulness in combination with the client's established routines to create meaningful change while easing the transition.

Sharon Graaf
Self Pay Rate: $199: Intake $139: Follow-ups

Sharon Graaf, PMHNP

Philosophy of Care

Sharon M. Graaf has been a Registered Nurse (RN) for 35 years and a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) for 6 of those years. Sharon specializes in attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and sleep issues. For the past 6 years she has been seeing primarily children and adolescents and also adult clients in an outpatient setting for psychiatric evaluations, diagnosis, and medication management.

Sharon completed her master’s and post master’s degrees from Wilkes University. She is certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). She began her career working as a registered nurse at a long-term state psychiatric hospital and a state prison. Her career path seemed to align with seeing patients that required mental health intervention. She acquired much mental health experience at those jobs and that is the reason she pursued the psychiatric focus for her higher education.

During the psychiatric evaluation Sharon seeks a thorough understanding of your symptoms, past and present, in order to identify potential causes, including any medical or biological factors that could have caused the issues you are having. She will discuss past medications that you have tried and therapies that have worked and not worked for you. She will discuss potential side effects if medication is prescribed, and your feelings about taking medications. She will provide an appointment that is relaxed and low-key so you can remember all that you would like to discuss. She will listen attentively. Sometimes the tension of having a mental health appointment with a provider causes an enormous amount of stress. Sharon believes that building a trusting rapport with her clients is a very important part of success in treatment.
