Jamelia Blake

Trauma Informed Psychotherapist

Jamelia Blake (or Jay) is a Black Caribbean immigrant and queer therapist. She is grounded in the frameworks of trauma-informed care and harm reduction. These allow her to comprehend how clients' behaviors and issues have emerged and to meet them where they are in their healing journey. Together, Jay and her clients can find appropriate challenges that create opportunities to thrive in a life spent in survival mode.

Jay is particularly interested in working with folks who have experienced grief, folks in recovery, those with family concerns like generational trauma. She is also interested in working with 2SLGBTQIA+ clients and immigrant clients, and subsequent generations, especially those of the African Diaspora. Her own lived experience in some of these identities and previous professional experiences allow her to engage in cultural humility with those she provides service to.

Outside of her work at Rose Wellness, she provides prevention education and harm reduction for college students. In her spare time, she enjoys working out, reading, learning about commercial aviation, playing video games, reading and writing.
