Creativity and Kiddos! Meet Our Newest Team Member, Jayme Sampler, LCMHC-A

December 13, 2022 by chrysalis

With a passion for working with clients ages 5-25, Jayme is a counselor who is certified in Expressive Arts Therapy. This means she incorporates different creative modalities into her therapy such as music, dance, poetry, and art to encourage emotional expression in her clients. I had the recent pleasure of sitting down to learn more about my fellow Appalachian State alum.

What populations do you like to work most with?
Kids, adolescents, and young adults. I have special interests in treating trauma, eating disorders, and sexual assault survivors.

What made you go into this field? 
I was originally pre-med, but I knew I always wanted to work with kids. I took an undergrad psychology course in Human Growth and Development which inspired my desire to become a counselor. I saw it as a way to help kids outside of medicine.

What is your therapeutic style?
Very laid back and interactive. I have a lot of fidget toys and free stickers!

What advice do you have for parents who’ve never brought their kid to counseling? 
Just because your child needs counseling is not a reflection on your parenting. Kids need a confidential, non-judgmental space to process their thoughts and feelings.

What do you like to do in your free time? 
Cook and bake, spend time with my dog and cat, and go to the beach. I also play computer games that my young clients got me into, which was a good outlet especially during COVID.

Do you have any hidden talents?
I make homemade pickles and know every word to every Taylor Swift song ever.

What’s on your travel bucket list? 

Jayme is now accepting new clients and takes BCBS and Medcost. To make an appointment to see her, please call us at 910-790-9500 or email
