I am a Clinical Social Worker licensed in New Jersey and I have completed a Masters Degree in the area of Clinical Social Work. I possess over 13 years of experience in the field of social work where I have been fortunate to work in a variety of settings that include behavioral & mental health, outpatient & inpatient settings, health care, hospice & palliative care, individual & family services, and non-profit organizations. I have helped clients better deal with a wide variety of issues that include but are not limited to depression and anxiety disorders, conduct issues, bipolar disorders, developmental disabilities, coping with grief & loss, trauma, marital & family issues, interpersonal problems, and parenting. I have also worked with clients from different multicultural groups feel more liberated from socioeconomic stressors. If selected as your therapist, I would draw on my professional experiences to help meet your specific needs.
As a therapist, I am very compassionate, open-minded, empathic, and patient. I do believe in focusing on solutions and not problems. I also believe that we all possess personal strengths to which we can draw from and use for intrinsic motivation. My specialty is cognitive-behavioral therapy, but I also utilize motivational-enhancement techniques, solution-focused brief therapy, and systemic approaches. During our initial dialog, we will collaborate to develop a treatment plan that targets specific goals which leverage your strengths and address your unique and specific concerns.
Seeking out help takes a certain level of courage, strength, desire, and a personal commitment. It can also be the first step towards making a change to enhance your life. Let me help you tap into your own personal strengths so that you can overcome the obstacles and barriers in your life. If you are ready to take that step, then I am here to support, empower, and motivate you.
I look forward to connecting with you soon!

Jamillah was very good. She listened to my concerns, was detailed and would send worksheets to help me better understand what the problem was. It was a good experience.
Very helpful, targeted the specific issues I wanted to work on.
Jamillah has been warm, attentive and quite understanding with me. She has approached my complicated, non-traditional situation with a great level of respect of and care. Personally, she is helping me identify and address ineffective patterns in my behavior so that I may achieve the results I desire.
Jamillah has been a great help to me. I was very hesitant about speaking with someone online and that they wouldn't understand me but I was completely wrong. While I'm continuing to seek her help she has provided me with great solutions in a compassionate and caring approach.
