Jamie Dunlop Khau (She/Her) was born and raised on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples–-Squamish, Tsleil-Waututh & Musqueam Nations.
Jamie’s educational background is in Early Childhood Development, Mindfulness, and Counselling Therapy. She has worked in various early learning settings and owned and operated a multi-age learning center. Jamie is a Certified Early Childhood Educator, Certified Mindfulness Facilitator through the International Mindfulness Teachers Association, and a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor Candidate. Her therapeutic approach is trauma-informed, holistic, and client-centered. She works with individuals, parents, caregivers, and educators and tailors her approach to fit each person’s unique needs.
In addition, Jamie is a mental health advocate, freelance writer, speaker, and well-being content creator. Her work in this space includes facilitating workshops for children, youth, and caregivers, speaking at events, writing articles that pertain to parenting & well-being, and creating digital content with brands and businesses that align with Styling The Inside’s mission.
Her passion for emotional healing and holistic well-being stems from her lived experiences. Jamie suffered from childhood trauma and as a result, the impacts of this developmental trauma stayed with her well into her adult life. This ultimately led her on her “styling the inside” path to trauma healing. She attributes her healing progress to those special helpers in her life who helped her feel safe, seen, validated, and heard, and she now uses her Styling The Inside mindful & compassionate trauma-informed approach to guide others on their journey.
Jamie comes from a mixed ethnic background and she was raised with individualistic and collectivist cultural values. She acknowledges her privilege, and is committed to using it for good. In addition she recognizes the impacts colonization has had on society and is dedicated to decolonizing herself and her helping practices.
You can often find Jamie spending time in nature, writing, reading, creating memories with her children, extended family & friends, and nurturing her relationship with herself so she can, in turn, support others.
