Your transformation is just a phone call away. I offer free, 20-minute phone consultations about you or your family member’s needs to help determine if my services are right for you, explain my approach to therapy, and answer any questions to help you feel comfortable with the process. You may contact me at 917-731-3988 or e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) to schedule the brief phone consultation.
Dr. Jamila provides individual therapy (for children, teens, and adults), family therapy, couples therapy (including marital, pre-marital, and co-parenting), and group therapy. Mental health evaluations (especially for trauma) are also offered, along with community and school-based interventions such as healing circles and crisis intervention. Video counseling is also offered to accommodate those who have difficulty scheduling, do not live within close proximity to the office or are unable to leave their home, or prefer the convenience of using the internet.
Cash, check, and credit card are acceptable forms of payment. Payment is due at the time of each session but payment plans may be arranged, if eligible.
Dr. Jamila is an out-of-network provider. This means that therapy services will not be covered fully by any insurance plan. However, insurance may be used to get partially reimbursed for services (often 50-80%) once your deductible is met, if you have out-of-network benefits as a part of your plan. You would be responsible for the full amount of the session fee and the amount reimbursed by your provider will vary based on your insurance plan. You will be provided with a detailed invoice that you can submit to your insurance for reimbursement. Please call you insurance to discuss your coverage.
Some helpful questions to ask include:
Many private practices choose not to join an insurance network. There are several benefits to working with an out-of-network provider like Dr. Jamila.
“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.”
