About me

Hello! I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been practicing for around seven years. I graduated with my bachelors in social work at Grand Valley State University and then went onto Western Michigan University, to obtain my masters in clinical social work. I believe that first building a rapport and caring approach, is the best starting point, to build a beneficial therapeutic relationship. The modalities that I am most commonly use are cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, motivational interviewing and solution focused therapy. I have worked with clients who experience anxiety, depression and life changes. I also have a lot of experience with bereavement counseling and aging and geriatric issues.

Thank you for taking the time to read my bio, I hope to have the opportunity to work with you!

I have loved working with Jill so far. She’s made the journey of addressing my mental health a lot easier by helping me realize that my reactions to problems are valid and normal. She gives me resources to the coping mechanisms I need and makes me feel heard.
