Dr. Jamila Young
As a licensed clinical psychologist, and founder of Young Psychotherapy & Wellness, I support individuals and couples with a variety of concerns. Due to the global pandemic, conservative safety measures are being taken and as a result sessions are occurring virtually. My concierge virtual practice allows my busy, highly productive clients the convenience of uninterrupted support regardless of their physical location. I believe that a collaborative and supportive relationship between therapist and client is essential for therapy to be successful. With the right therapist, it can be an opportunity to learn more about yourself, relieve distress, and enrich your life.

is similar to couples therapy in it also addresses concerns such as improving communication, decreasing and resolving conflict, and establishing a more meaningful connection. The difference between couples and dyad therapy is that the dyad is not in a romantic relationship (e.g. mother-daughter; sibling-sibling, etc.). One or both members of the dyad often feel misunderstood by their counterpart. We work to recognize and alter the causes of communication impasses and disconnect, as well as adjust the nature of the dynamic when necessary. The focus is on the relationship and serves to deepen personal understanding and growth.Read More

“I hope you realize and appreciate how many people’s lives that you change for the better and how many souls you empower for good. I am so thankful to have stumbled into your office as a puddle of a person when I did a couple of years ago.”
“Thank you for giving me the skills to analyze and pursue what honestly feels like the best version of my life to date.”
“Dr. Young saved my life. I was struggling emotionally while in my grad school program, when I met her. I was a mess trying to hold it together and perform academically, while my psychiatric medications were providing little relief. After meeting with me and inquiring about my concerns, Dr. Young shared that she questioned my longstanding diagnosis (and thus medication). She spoke with my psychiatrist and with a new, accurate diagnosis, I started a new regimen and it felt like a was looking at the world completely differently. I had been living with that misdiagnosis for years. I can’t put into words how grateful I am to her.”
