About me

Hello-

My name is Jamal Morton and I am a Licensed independent Mental Health Practitioner(LIMHP) in the state of Nebraska. I earned my Bachelors Degree at Bellevue University in Behavioral Science and earned my Masters Degree in 2015 from Bellevue University in Clinical Counseling. My practice has focused on clients with co-occurring disorders. I specialize in working with individuals who experience difficulty controlling anger, anxiety, depression, abuse/neglect, parenting difficulties, addiction, stress, grief, trauma, lack of coping skills, mood disorders, and personality disorders. I have expertise in working with diverse multicultural populations. I value a collaborative approach and want to provide the support you need to grow in a safe space.

I would describe my approach as empathetic, warm, goal oriented, and client centered. I use Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing to help my clients set goals and objectives, work through their traumas, and to take positive steps to move forward in their lives.

I look forward to working with you.

I liked Jamal when I first met with him, I felt like we connected and he could help me on my healing journey. He then canceled my next appointment the day of, not even an hour before the appointment. He then no showed my next 2 appointments. I was looking for help and was left empty handed. I hope in the future Jamal is better organized with his clients.

Jamal is kind, and understanding. I have no problem opening up and discussing those things I wouldn't want to talk to anyone else about.

Jamal is an incredible counselor, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience working with him. From our first session, Jamal was attentive, kind, and compassionate. I felt like I was able, to be honest, and straightforward about my issues because he has an accepting and non-judgemental approach when it comes to sessions. When I first started counseling I was nervous and unsure what to expect but Jamal worked with me to create goals and solutions to help me move forward in my personal and professional life. He has been a tremendous resource, ally, and supporter in my life and I greatly appreciate all that Jamal has done for me.

Jamal is very easy to talk to, like a friend or a brother. During our sessions I felt as though he not only listened well, but also clearly understood my concerns. I appreciate the different analogies he’d use, as it helped to keep key things in my mind and it was easy to recall them outside as I’m going throughout my day. Needless to say I enjoyed working with Jamal, and can’t thank him enough for his help

He is an amazing counselor. During our initial phone call he was very attentive and his questioning style makes you feel like you’re having a regular conversation with a new friend and he sets a relaxing environment. At no point during the session did I feel judged or that maybe he wouldn’t understand my background. I would definitely recommend him to other people.
