Description of Counselor/Practice
Taking a step into therapy is brave. Therapy can be beautiful and deeply healing, yet difficult as wounds are uncovered, nourished, and tended to. As individuals we enter into therapy differently, with our own narratives, and each experience is unique and sacred.
Tending to soul can take different levels of commitment, curiosity, and time. This can also change as shifts in our world take place. I’m grateful to honor clients, hold space for resourcing, and bring supportive tools to each unique journey.
My name is Jamila and I’m a second-generation Moroccan American therapist living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a strong background in working with individuals, families, and groups from various cultures and ages.
I’ve had the honor of supporting client’s and families who come from various socio-economic backgrounds as they work through life challenges, client’s and families who have dealt with displacement and/or refugee experiences, 1st generation college students as they navigate barriers, client who have lost loved ones, and clients who are balancing/navigating cultural identities, and oppression.
I have done my work within community mental health, non-profit, public school, tribal communities, and university settings.
I view counseling as a collaborative process and trust the wisdom each client holds. I believe in following the signs of the mind and body to tend to emotional wounds.
I utilize interventions and skills in Art Therapy, CBT, dream work, incorporating nature, Lifespan Integration, Mindfulness Techniques, Narrative Therapy, Parts Therapy, and Storytelling. Each approach is thoughtful and based on client need.
