Hello! My name is Jameelah Brown-Williams (she/her/hers) and I am so glad you found me! I am excited to share a little about myself with you. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the State of Illinois and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Liberal Studies (B.A.) from Centenary College in Los Angeles, California in 2003 and went on to earn my Master of Arts degree in Family Counseling from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, Illinois in 2003. I am currently pursuing my Doctorate in Education degree in Educational Leadership and Organizational Change (Ed.D.) at Roosevelt University in Chicago, Illinois.
You know, I understand that asking for help is not an easy thing to do, and people come to counseling seeking a safe space to share their life stories. I feel blessed and humbled by the experiences and opportunities I have been afforded. I have served as a case manager for disabled students, crisis counselor, inpatient intake worker, school counselor, and teletherapist. My career in the mental health field spans some fifteen years where I have worked in behavioral health hospital settings, community mental health, and within schools. I am passionate about working with women, families, couples, teenagers, and school-aged children. I work well with clients seeking help for relationship difficulties, navigating divorce, domestic violence, grief and loss, childhood trauma, early childhood intervention and developmental delays, family conflict, anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, ADHD, and OCD.
My goal is to help create a safe, trusting therapeutic environment for you to seek guidance and support. I take a humanistic approach to counseling and feel comfortable using a variety of counseling techniques to help you reach your goals and feel better.
I provide teletherapy services for Generations Behavioral Healthcare, P.C. and Home Psych Services, P.C. using secure video teleconferencing technology for the comfort, convenience, added privacy and safety of my clients. I live in Chicago and enjoy spending time with my family and two dogs.
