Jeannelle Perkins-Muhammad is a Licensed Marriage and Family Counselor/Therapist with more than 12 years of experience in relationship and life coaching.
Ms. Perkins-Muhammad desires to assist the LowCountry in removing the mental health stigma that persists by providing multi-cultural counseling to all who seek assistance. She believes that mental wellness is vital to ensuring the health of the community overall. She provides relationship enrichment workshops for couples and singles, parent management and blended family courses, and mental health first aid classes for the community at large.
While many therapists offer counseling, Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) are specifically trained to transform marital relationships by exploring communication skills, understanding intimacy and sexuality, and improving conflict resolution. Ms. Perkins-Muhammad works to help couples revitalize, revamp and repair their commitment as a hallmark for building healthy relationships that promote stable homes and communities. She sees the couple through a systemic lens as if there are three clients: the wife, the husband, and the marriage relationship.
Clients immediately feel at ease while working with Jeannelle. She views the relationship, not either individual, as her client. Her focus is on helping people feel alive and fully inspired while helping couples and families achieve a deep connection from a place of compassion, balance, and wholeness.
Jeannelle enjoys helping men and women create healthy and happy relationships in their lives as a whole. Her therapeutic approach is client-centered, as she directs your therapy with your personal goals in mind. She is compassionate, direct and authentic in helping clients overcome their challenges.
Ms. Perkins-Muhammad is a graduate of Capella University and completed her tutelage under the supervision of Lieutenant Commander, Dr. Ann Hummel of U.S. Naval Hospital Yokosuka, Japan, and Lieutenant Christopher Wallace, LCSW/C. During her internship, she received top honors and accolades for her work with civilians, service members, and their families. Ms. Perkins-Muhammad was instrumental in the development of marriage enrichment classes offered monthly, in an effort to thwart family dysfunction during pre-and post-deployment in an overseas environment.
Ms. Perkins-Muhammad spent 12+ years working with couples and individuals as a Marriage Coach and motivational speaker in spiritual and secular settings. As an LMFT in private practice, Ms. Perkins-Muhammad sees clients in Charleston, SC who demonstrate great strength and resiliency by acknowledging their challenges with communication, intimacy, infidelity, parenting, military life, depression, and anxiety in an effort to improve their lives overall.
Jeannelle has been married to Franklin, a Lieutenant Commander in the US Navy, for 20 years. Together, they offer life-changing marriage enrichment conferences to couples internationally. They have two beautiful young adult children, love to travel and seek new adventures in life. Jeannelle and Franklin agree that "there is never a dull moment in marriage, so we must keep our skills ready for the challenge."
