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.
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

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!

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.
