Ms Jamila always calms down my anxiety. She helps me break down my concerns into achievable goals and has given me so much clarity. She’s teaching me coping skills I never knew how to apply. She’s actually my first therapist and I haven’t felt the need to find another. She’s exactly what I needed for this moment in my life.

Jamila listens to exactly what I say and gives constructive advice. From the very first session, she gave me helpful advice on how to better take care of my self, focusing on self care. I listened to her, got checked out by the doctor and accomplished some stuff for myself I have been putting off for a while, and I’m glad I did! Now I’m working on setting boundaries with others. She actively sets new goals for me to accomplish and I feel fulfilled when I do them

Work with me!
