Dr. Jill Kapil

(PsyD)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in California with over 5 years of clinical experience working in University College counseling centers. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship/interpersonal issues, career challenges, self-esteem/motivational , substance use, and multicultural concerns. I understand how experiences and life transitions can increase stress and begin to impact emotional well-being, relationships, or individual performance.

I utilize evidence-based practices to help individuals alleviate and manage unhelpful thoughts or behaviors that get in the way of everyday life and tasks. My counseling style is warm, emphathic, interactive, and engaging. While, my approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, and solution-focused treatment, it is important that the treatment plan meets your specific goals and areas of focus. I work from a collaborative approach to empower individuals to be involved in their own process of change and growth.

Seeking support takes a lot of courage, and you should be proud of yourself for taking the first step towards building awareness into your own thought processes and behaviors. I look forward to supporting you, and working with you every step of the way.

She listens, she is insightful and she offers great perspective. I haven't met all of the goals I want to in my mental wellness yet but I have noticed my progress. I was doubtful about the counseling process but even just knowing I have someone to vent to at all times has helped.

Dr. Kapil has been marvelous in helping me organize my thoughts for better outcomes and growth through CBT. She is great with her follow-up (even when I'm not so great at replying). Highly recommend!

Dr. Kapil is very attentive and insightful. She asks introspective questions and offers exercises and mindfulness activities in a way that doesn't feel dismissive, but rather feels supportive. I have really enjoyed working with Dr. Kapil and I have experienced unsatisfactory experiences with other therapists in the past. She does an excellent job of balancing cognitive therapy with emotional healing.

When I always need to talk about my personal issues, I always have Dr. Kapil with me. She helped me out a lot from anxiety to relationships.

The doc is very responsive and understanding, even when I couldn't get online to talk to her.

Dr. Kapil is an excellent sounding board and always provides insights on different ways I can be looking at situations which distress me. I am much calmer and more clearly focused than I was when I first began counseling and I believe she is a genuine asset to Better Help.

One of the best. Empathetic and intuitive, Dr. Kapil has a counseling style that is hands on and helps the counseled understand their problem, as well as deal with it. She has most definitely changed my life for the better, and I have no complaints. I sincerely appreciate all the effort she puts into her work, and would without hesitation recommend her services.

I really appreciate Dr. Kapil's style. She is very attentive and understanding. This is my first time working with Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and I'm finding that I much prefer it to previous experiences I've had with other modes of talk therapy. Rather than getting lost and overwhelmed in a sea of confusing emotions and half-forgotten memories, I feel like Dr. Kapil instead is teaching me how to examine my own thoughts and their impact on my life, and then teaching me the skills to manage my own emotional and mental health.

My counselor is very friendly and understands my concerns. I never feel judged for sharing my concerns. She's very straightforward in a supportive way that makes it feel safe to open up. I'm very pleased with my counseling experience and have already recommended it to friends
