Jamila McKinney LPC-A
I obtained my Master’s Degree in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University. It is my formal education coupled with my professional experience that has prepared me to counsel individuals, couples, families, and groups. I use an eclectic theoretical approach that include solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and person-centered counseling.
As your therapist it is my responsibility to be patient, an active listener and understanding to the best of my professional ability. Our time together will be best spent if you commit to participating in session. communicating your thoughts, and feelings will give me the insight necessary to best serve you. Counseling is a way for one to identify issues in one’s life, and work towards resolving those issues in a healthy and productive manner. For counseling to be productive it is my belief that a counselor and client should work together towards a collective goal.
Adding to what you already have, our time will be spent doing what I call “adjusting the lens”: adding more depth-more clarity to whatever has been difficult to identify. Through the use of further psycho-educational knowledge, developing and practicing new coping skills, while having a safe non-judgmental space to process and grow. Your experiences, your story matters.
Creating a safe, and non-judgmental space is of great importance to me; This space is for you. Processing, managing and resolving relational issues, Anxiety, Depression, and Trauma.
My belief is, in life “it doesn’t matter how you start, it matters how you finish.” The goal is for you to see just how powerful you are, identify the strengths you already have within, and bring those forward.
