Jamila Iraqui, M.Ed, LMHC
Description of Counselor/Practice
My name is Jamila, a Moroccan American therapist living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, consultant, and supervisor with a strong background in working with individuals, families, and groups from various cultures and ages.
I use a variety of therapeutic approaches to support individuals in their time in therapy.
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, dreams, EMDR, DBT Skills, incorporating nature, Lifespan Integration, Mindfulness Techniques, Narrative Therapy, Internal Family System (IFS), and Storytelling. Each approach is thoughtful and based on client need. Through these therapies, I’m focused on working through a culturally appropriate, social justice, and trauma informed care lens that acknowledges historical, intergenerational, and systematic trauma.
I view counseling as a collaborative process and trust the wisdom each client holds. I have done my work within community mental health agencies, non-profit, public school, tribal communities, and university settings.
Please note for Lyra clients, I only use evidence based treatments which include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), DBT Skills, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to help the mind heal from psychological trauma much like the body heals from physical trauma.
