Jamie Harris Rosen
Jamie is an artist, experienced Restorative Justice facilitator and Expressive Arts therapist. For the past decade she has worked with individuals, teams, organizations and educational institutions in San Diego to help her diverse clients build community, resolve conflict, and cultivate resilience and well-being. She holds a BA in Psychology and Studio Art, a Doctorate of Jurisprudence, and a MA in Expressive Arts Conflict Transformation and Peacebuilding. She is passionate about harnessing the power of creativity to transform the way diverse people navigate conflict and build community.
Drawing from her diverse professional experiences and additional training in alternative dispute resolution, Restorative Justice, trauma, somatics and yoga, she recently co-founded The Creatives PATCH, an organization that synthesizes peaceful and restorative conflict tools, somatics and expressive arts into a community-based healing model.
In her facilitation and work as a therapist she leverages intermodal arts-based prompts and reflection to help her clients expand their emotional and sensory intelligence, disrupt routine behavior and thinking, and move them closer to their desired goals. She has worked with the National Conflict Resolution Center, Veterans Village, The Monarch School, San Diego Unified School District (K1-12), Autism Tree Project Foundation, and University of California San Diego.
Most recently, she has been developing and facilitating experiential based workshops, exploring issues of culture, diversity, and allyship through an arts-based lense. These workshops bring together racially and ethnically diverse groups of people as they work towards visceral understandings of racism, break down barriers to connection, and move forward in their allyship and racial equity journeys.
Jamie is a single mother of two amazing adult children that both identify as artists in addition to their professional pursuits. Jamie loves nature and is happiest when hiking, dancing, splattering paint and playing with her dog.
