I am a clinical social worker licensed in Tennessee with over 4 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, dialectical and solutions focused therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

I have only had one session with jamil and it has been great. I look forward to my session today and going forward.
Great guy and informative
Jamil has been truly a Godsend. I never thought I was a “therapy” person…but he’s really changed that and I’m so grateful for him. His ability to make me see things from a different angle and help me to talk through my issues and laugh at myself has been so beneficial as I worked my way through a breakup, the end of a huge professional chapter, and make sense of relationships that have been previously confounding. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
He has a way of getting me to express myself by engaging me in progressive conversation and making me think. 10/10 would recommend.
Jamil helped me through a really tough time in my life! I came here not really knowing what I needed but found help that has opened me up to new perspectives. He was a great therapist and felt more like a friend. Would recommend!
Jamil checks in, asks how I’m doing and really pays attention. He’s been a positive new person in my life.
He’s always available and seems to understand our faults.
Jamil is an impactful therapist. I’ve only been in counseling for 2-3 months and I’m already seeing changes in my behavior and thought processes. He’s helping me to respect my boundaries and myself!!!
i have had very few sessions BUT he has helped so much in the little time i’ve been with him. super positive and kind.
Jamil has taught me how to better communicate with those in my life. He has helped me tackle the root of my anxiety & has shown me what I need to focus on to overcome the obstacles holding me back.
Jamil has been great! Very responsive and attentive and has had great advice!
I have never done anything like this before, so working with Jamil has been an interesting experience. I am greatful for the time he takes to speak with me and help me with whatever is going on
Jamil is friendly and knowledgeable. He listens to what we are concerned about as a couple and together we come up with a plan. He’s very caring and helpful. We are thankful we we’re paired with him!
Just needed someone to talk to and he was always available and helpful. Thanks jamil !
Although we did not connect for a session he was very interested in my well-being and made considerable effort to connect with me! I appreciated that very much !
Doctor Matthews is kind and understanding. He listens actively and offers help according to his patients needs. I highly recommend Dr. Matthews to anyone looking for support and help in dealing with life’s ups and downs.
Jamil is very supportive and a great listener. This last session, he pointed out something that I didn’t think was a huge deal, but now know I need to discuss with my girlfriend.
