Jimmie has over 20 years of experience in the field of counseling and education. He is a graduate of Metropolitan State University where he earned a BA in Individualized Studies. He earned an MA from Adler Graduate School and holds 3 licenses in school, clinical and alcohol and drug counseling. He has a certificate in Trauma Informed Practice from the University of Minnesota and a Co-Occurring Disorders certificate from Adler Graduate School. Additionally, Jimmie is an LPC & LPCC board approved clinical supervisor by the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy.

Jimmie is a trainer and consultant in Restorative Practices, Crisis Prevention and Intervention (CPI) as well as other Social Emotional Learning (SEL) approaches such as the Nurtured Heart Approach. Prior to his work as an associate therapist, he served as an Adjunct Instructor for Adler Graduate School in their School Counseling Program. Currently, Jimmie is working to incorporate Bruce Perry’s Neurosequential Model and the generational trauma work of Resmaa Menakem, LICSW and author of My Grandmother’s Hands, to better inform his practice when working with clients presenting with trauma.

Jimmie’s clinical work has been with mostly black indigenous people of color (BIPOC). He approaches his work with genuine curiosity, and feels honored to be trusted with client’s sacred thoughts, feelings and experiences. Jimmie believes in the Adlerian principle that a primary source of struggles in life is caused by taking too many precautions. This is why he enjoys helping clients find the power to face their fears by embracing the courage to be imperfect.
