I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) in Montana. I received an Associate of Arts degree with distinction at Casper College in Wyoming, a Bachelor of Arts degree with honor at the University of Wyoming in 1995, and a Master of Science degree with honors in Community Counseling at Montana State University/Billings in 2004 . I love empowering my clients using various therapeutic and cognitive behavioral approaches. I have extensive experience working with individuals struggling with mental health, addiction, and co-occurring disorders. I have worked in the counseling field for over 15 years. I have worked in an inpatient treatment facility for almost 8 years as well as residential and outpatient centers. I enjoy working with adults, couples, families, youth, and have facilitated crisis mediations as well as individual, group and family therapy. I have addressed issues related to self- esteem, parenting, addiction, tobacco cessation, family dynamics, co-dependency, anger management, depression, anxiety, and trauma utilizing evidenced based strategies including effective communication skills, self-compassion, meditation, mindfulness, relationship building skills, forgiveness, and conflict resolution. I have created several original materials to assist in the therapeutic process and to best fit my client’s needs. I utilize a solution focused approach building from a person’s strengths and utilizing a variety of value-based techniques to assist my clients in achieving a healthier and more fulfilled life.
I am certified in Problem Solving Treatment and have taught various parenting classes including Love and Logic. I love the outdoors i.e. camping, hiking, taking my dog on an adventure and just soaking it all in. I have two adult sons and one grandchild. I enjoy photography and I have just started a new hobby with metal forging/blacksmithing and working with beautiful stone.
I am available for sessions most days (usually not Saturdays) and also upon request as my schedule allows. You can chose your preference for Video Sessions, Live (message) Chats, or Phone Sessions. If you need a session on the same day, let me know and I will put you on the cancellation list or I will try to fit you in a slot. Don't hesitate to ask and I will do my best to accommodate if at all possible at the available time. In the meantime, feel free to message anytime 24/7. Basically, it is what you are most comfortable with and at your own pace. I generally can respond at least once per morning and once per evening, sometimes more! You are also welcome to try the journal feature, and can keep the entries private for your own use or you can choose to share any entry with me that you feel comfortable sharing and you can change or delete what you want to share at anytime.

Jennifer is incredibly patient and helpful
Jennifer has been incredibly helpful. I've been through a lot, and rarely discuss it with people because a lot of them brush me off, or flat out call me a liar. Having someone who I know is not only willing to listen, but also won't laugh at me. Knowing that I can talk about my issues and get honest advice is such a relief.
I really appreciate Jennifer’s insight. I can tell she truly cares, and she is always ready to provide other resources as needed. I feel she is a real professional.
Jennifer is such a good listener. With BetterHelp I can write anytime depending on my mood & it's comforting Jennifer will be with me shortly. I like her soft, calming voice that smiles. She has me thinking all is well within minutes.
I am extremely busy and sometimes can't answer for days at a time, but Jennifer keeps sending me helpful messages, projects I can work on, and doesn't make me feel bad for neglecting myself. I know that I am, but there is so much in life that needs taken care of and I end up putting myself last. Opening up the app and having all the encouraging messages, videos and everything she sends me really helps me to calm down, even if I don't have time to respond or watch them right away.
Jennifer is great. Highly recommend her.
Jennifer is a very caring compassionate individual. She has no trouble relating to extremely odd bits of yourself and brings a loving light hearted perspective that makes it hard to not smile. She's wonderful.
Jennifer Hill has been amazing, patient, and very supportive of me through some difficult times.
She has been a wonderful help. She helped me so much and I can't thank her enough. Anyone would benefit from her!
