jamile edwards

Jamille loves to discuss things like movies, music, food, culture, and art with her clients. Her drawing skills are still at the beginning stages. She appreciates the fact that people are so different and have their own ways of viewing themselves and the world around them.

She works with children, adolescents, adults, and older adults. She has also worked with individuals with intellectual disabilities, dementia, sexual trauma, and addictions.

Jamille uses an integrative approach to counseling. She has experience with a variety of treatment approaches. She enjoys sharing and creating therapeutic experiences that clients can relate to you. She feels that it is important to create a healthy relationship with clients and understands that building trust takes time. During that time, clients are encouraged to explore individual and collective points of view, cultural influences, past/present memories, and their own self-identity.

Jamille enjoys helping others understand counseling theories, concepts, and interventions. She feels that clients can benefit from learning more about the counseling approach being used so that they can tailor their goals and plans. She finds that clients can often relate to goals that are realistic and to interventions that resonate with them. She thinks that this creates long term changes for clients.

Jamille earned her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Argosy University, Schaumburg. She completed all the courses for a doctoral degree in Counseling Education and Supervision program at Argosy University, Chicago. She enrolled in the Counselor Education and Supervision program at Northern Illinois University. Her dissertation research is on indigenous communities who engage in mental health counseling.
