About Jama

Embarking on life's journey requires more than just navigating through challenges; it demands that you prioritize your well-being, turning self-care from an option into an absolute necessity. You don't have to wait until you're at your lowest point; self-care is the key to prevention. Whether you're grappling with anxiety, depression, shame, anger, or trauma affecting your health and relationships, there's a space for transformation and healing.

As a seasoned Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 30 years of experience, I understand the complexities you may be facing. I specialize in providing virtual and in-person counseling sessions for adults, teens, children, couples, and families dealing with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, stress, addiction/substance abuse, life transitions, and trauma. Your struggles are not just challenges – they are opportunities for growth and learning.

The Journey to Healing

Let's create a safe space together to ignite change, heal wounds, and uncover patterns that no longer serve you. By exploring how history impacts your present, we can adjust the lens through which you view the world and yourself. Life's challenges are transformative opportunities waiting to be seized.

Your Calming Center

In our therapy sessions, my focus is to be your calming center. With a blend of empathy, support, and mindfulness, I aim to bring balance and insight into your unique journey. Address your needs without judgment, and let curiosity and acknowledgment guide the exploration of your emotions.
