Jillian Hopkins

(MA, LPC, LMHC)

About Me

I am a licensed psychotherapist with over 35 years of experience primarily working with individuals, couples and groups. Trained in family systems, couple's counseling, mind/body health, mindfulness, narrative coaching, trauma work, hypnotherapy, psychosynthesis, expressive arts and equine-assisted therapy, over the course of my career, I've developed a series of workshops helping individuals feel more confident and empowered to meet the challenges they face.

Depending on your needs, my approach may include a combination of psycho-education, experiential and process oriented tools and information,

My specialties are helping my clients work with...
Fear, Anxiety, Aging, Grief and Loss, Living with a Chronic Illness, Creative Blocks, Relationship Issues, Desired Habit Change, Exploring Places Where We’re Stuck, Depression.

I'm a big believer in seeing life challenges, especially the most painful ones, as a catalyst for self-discovery, personal growth and positive change. Approaching what challenges us, with curiosity and compassion (rather than judgement), we begin to learn how to honor all parts of ourselves…..even those most difficult and painful parts. It’s from this place we give ourselves the gift of connecting to our most authentic and true self. We learn what we value and how to take steps toward creating the life we want. "We begin to hear the heartbeat of our own why." - Sharon David, PhD.

My goal in working with you is to offer a warm and nurturing environment, as well as practical tools, where you feel safe to explore and work with your challenges. To engage them as an ally on your journey to deeper health and wellness.

"Healing isn't about finding peace outside of the storm. It's about finding peace right in it's center. Accepting fear and pain as an ally, rather than push it away, opens the possibility for healing at a very deep level." - Melissa West

Jillian has a wealth of expertise and knowledge which she can adapt to support any situation. Her kind and professional support has been invaluable to me over the past year and she has facilitated some profound insights through our work together. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jillian; she is the most qualified and helpful counsellor I have ever worked with.

Jillian is an excellent communicator who gets to the heart of the matter quickly. I was originally scared of online counselling. But from the first session with Jillian, I felt like I was in good hands. She has taught me a variety of practical tools I could use in my daily life. I appreciate her dedication to listen, offer advice and nudge me in the right direction.

Jillian has the ability to make me feel understood, in a non-judgmental way, and is able to help me stay focused on steps I need to take to rebuild my life. Her advice is consistently well-founded and she is a pleasure to work with.

Written by S.H. on May 03, 2018 after counseling with Jillian for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, anger, and career

Jill is so compassionate and genuine, and truly makes me feel like I matter. She has made herself available for me and she listens and gives great tools to work with outside of sessions. She checks in if she has not heard from me and that is really special and she has gotten me through some really tough moments. I would highly recommend her.

She has been a pleasure to work with as she helped me through this new promotion at my job. She's enabling me to be a better leader with my colleagues. Moreover, I get a lot out of each session as she always give me homework, resources, and allows me to drive the agenda for each session. I'd definitely recommend her.
