Hello and Welcome! I am licensed as a professional counselor Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico, and a licensed addictions counselor in both Colorado and Wyoming. I have a Masters Degree from the Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado and a Bachelors degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara. I have been in the field for over 30 years and gradually gained experience with a wide range of issues including but not limited to depression, anxiety, addictions, legally required treatment due to alcohol and/or drug use, PTSD, self-esteem issues, and many others.
My degree is in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology. As a result my approach is eclectic. This means that I will draw from different aspects of psychology and even other disciplines when appropriate. When working with others I do my best to meet you where you are and treat you with respect, dignity and compassion. I am trained as a Sedona Method® facilitator and offer this effective technique whenever appropriate. I also have my own therapy dog name Atley who is a 6-year-old boxer. He is very sweet and likes to help people feel better. I have learned a lot from his gentleness and directness. In addition I am a board certified music therapist.
I understand and have experienced myself that life brings many surprises and unexpected transitions. I will do my best to invite to focus your attention in the present moment and guide you to let go of unnecessary pain and suffering and bring forth your authentic Self.
Congratulations on taking the first step toward moving forward with your life!
- Stress, Anxiety
- Self esteem
I also have experience in LGBT, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Eating disorders, Sleeping disorders, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

Jill is unfailingly professional and has made it very easy to open up to and trust. Couldn't ask for anything more!
I am very grateful to be able to work with Jill. I have been struggling through several huge transitions all at once. When I tried to find a therapist through traditional methods (Insurance companies, etc.) I was told I couldn't get an appointment for months. BetterHelp is wonderful. I was able to get help immediately by email or phone. Jill responds in a timely manner. She is great!
She is wonderful and reassuring. It seems all problems can be solved with her guidance for self and also for my partner. I am ever grateful for her.
I found Jill to be very responsive, caring and adaptable to my needs, allowing me to get the insight and direction I was seeking in a very short time. Way better than traditional face-to-face counseling!
