Welcome! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 15 years of counseling experience. I have counseled hundreds of clients who are in need of assistance coping through a life crisis or change, as well as clients who suffer from Major Depression, Anxiety Disorders, Personality Disorders or Addictions. I have experience working in multiple settings, including hospital emergency rooms as a crisis worker, and as a psychotherapist in a private practice. I have also had the opportunity to provide clinical supervision and leadership to other clinicians, as well.
We all have times where we struggle with change, decision making, relationship, family or career issues. I feel that it is a privilege to be invited into someone's life during some of their most difficult times. You are an expert on you, but we don't always have the best tools for coping through a new situation and this can be frustrating. Sometimes we need someone objective to listen and offer guidance. I offer a safe, accepting environment for my clients, balanced with identifying opportunities for growth, change and skill building. I have extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I am excited to collaborate with you on your mental health journey.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Jill Early. We don’t pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
Jill is kind and really cares about me and my concerns. I have not had great experiences with counseling in the past but Jill has changed all that. I have noticed some positive changes in my life in the few months we have been meeting. I highly recommend her!
I’m very grateful to have been matched with Jill. She’s knowledgeable and insightful. But I most appreciate that her responses always feel warm and genuine. Thank you, Jill!
Jill has been phenomenal. She listens and provides excellent strategies and feedback.
Jill is a literal life saver. She has kind and caring every step of the way, though firm with me. She has something helpful to say on nearly every weird little thing I bring to our sessions. Bar none the best therapist I have ever had.
It's taken me several years to find an empathetic therapist who doesn't judge me or shame me for my thoughts or words. If I have a novel of issues to tell her, she responds in kind, taking the time to address all of it. She is uplifting and gentle. She is rare and valuable.
Jill is very kind, understanding, and patient. She makes great recommendations on how to navigate my feelings and situations. I couldn't be happier!
Very clear and amiable. Truly listens and gives great perspective.
Jill has been amazing. She's been so supportive and encouraging. I feel like she really listens to everything I say and genuinely cares. She's given me so much helpful advice and support already. I love working with her.
Jill is very attentive and kind. She pays attention to my specific problems and is always on-track and remembers my concerns even if it's been a few days between session. Highly recommended.
Jill shows great expertise in the way that she talks with me. She understands and picks up on what my real issues are. She sympathizes with me in a real way and appropriately gives me tips and strategies that are realistic for me.
Very good listener and honest :)
Jill was really helpful during a very dark time for me. All of her advice was relevant and she was as helpful as she could be without meeting face to face and having only a brief amount of time and information with and about me. The exercises she gave were valuable and helped me focus. I truly appreciated her support.
