About Me

Hi, I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in California with 7 years experience working in community mental health and in the domestic violence field. My training and experience includes providing individual and group therapy to survivors of trauma (including physical, sexual, emotional, financial and religious abuse). My master’s degree is in Art Therapy/Counseling and I have been fortunate to work with culturally diverse populations.

Currently, as a private practitioner, my focus is on working with adults (age 18+), presenting with issues related to post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, anger management, gender-identity, self-esteem, co-dependency and toxic relationships.

My approach is person-centered, value and strength-based. I aim to help you see your value and your potential more objectively. I’m specifically interested in helping you to recognize and re-organize inter-generational patterns that have shaped your self-concept and life outlook. You are the expert of your life and I believe my role is to provide you with a safe and supportive framework for you identify what is holding you back from achieving the life you want.

You can choose between a structured or unstructured approach. A structured approach includes between session homework and worksheets.

Therapy modalities include:
• Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
• Cognitive Processing Therapy
• Psycho-dynamic
• Polyvagal Theory
• Motivational Interviewing
• Art as Therapy
• Domestic Violence Education (for all genders to understand healthy vs. unhealthy relationships)

Together we explore what’s getting in your way of accomplishing your vision of a successful life and how to remove these obstacles.

It takes courage to seek help and make changes . If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Jill Dupont is the absolute best. She makes the perfect therapist because not only does she have the knowledge for it, but she truly cares. Initially, I read every single profile and chose her. One of the best decisions of my life. Thank you, Jill!!! And thank you, BetterHelp!!!

Written by I.A. on Jan 02, 2022 after therapy with JILL for 5 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Jill is incredibly understanding, dedicated and creative in her work. She's great about providing exercises and explanations at every step of the process, and I experienced so much growth while working with her!

Written by Y.V. on Oct 28, 2021 after therapy with JILL for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

I feel very confident that my thoughts, feelings, and stressors are really important to Jill. She's a great listener, she's creative with her offers of support like worksheets, journaling, and non-tradional approaches to problem solving. I enjoy my sessions because I have freedom to vent, we laugh, she keeps me goal oriented and focused and she always asks if she's doing everything she can to meet my needs...I always leave our sessions feeling I've been heard and understood. And she reassures me that she will be there to support and help me for as long as I feel it's necessary and she'll be ready to release me when I'm confident I'll be able to stand comfortably on my own. I really like that about her.

Jill is a wonderful counselor. She listens without judgment and has a calm presence that makes you feel at ease. She is good about trying different techniques to see what might resonate and work best with me. I highly recommend Jill.
