She/Her/HersLicensed Mental Health Counselor, LMHC Specialties • Insurance & Fees • Locations
Jamila Millette is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor originally from New Jersey, currently residing in the Sunshine State, Florida. She works with youth, young professionals and the young at heart. Most of the community that Jamila works with have struggled with confidence, stress (life-work imbalance), anxiety, feeling stuck, and spiritual struggles. Jamila is particularly passionate about serving young professionals who feel like they have lost a sense of self, or didn't have "it" to begin with. She also has a certification in Yoga, teaches dance and infuses the expressive arts into her practice.
Jamila is an eclectic practitioner, she not only uses the arts but clinical theories, which uses methods to challenge current limiting beliefs and patterns; takes small, medium and large steps towards great change whether physically, mentally or spiritually. She uses a holistic movement towards greater health for those she serves. In session, clients will utilize movement, creative expressions, and classic talk therapy to move through various wounds and internal hurdles.
This creative approach has garnered great success for clients who really want change. Clients have shared that they feel renewed, more connected to themselves, others and at times God. Jamila is dedicated to providing a relationship that is unique, warm, challenging, and deeply moving for those who enter into this movement. Outside of private practice Jamila volunteers with youth at local high schools. She also enjoys a good brunch (eating in general), singing karaoke, and dancing salsa y bachata.
