Hi there! My name is Jill Markowitz and I have been practicing for the last 5 years as a LMHC (Licensed Mental Health Counselor). I have experience working with various populations - the LGBTQ+ community as well as with clients who are experiencing depression, anxiety, grief and a difficult time with life transitions. My role as your therapist is twofold; a) to listen to your concerns and provide you with a safe space to speak about your thoughts and feelings without feeling judged and b) provide you with new tools for your toolbox that you can carry with you even after we stop working together. My ultimate goal throughout this process is to get you to talk through all of your thoughts and feelings, help you be able to understand them better and get you to a better place mentally, emotionally and physically. When I start working with a new client, I let them know that throughout this process, I view them as the experts in their own lives, relying on them to provide me with insight into themselves, and together with my clinical knowledge, we can work together on reaching the goals we set forth. Therapy is a collaborative venture, one that is a process and takes time to see change. Additionally, there might be some moments where you come upon difficult truths about yourself or your situation. Just keep in mind this is all part of the journey we are on together. I look forward to working to with you and helping you work through whatever obstacles are currently in your way!

Jill is an amazing therapist and one of the best I’ve had. She’s patient and focuses on my problems and really listens and remembers a lot. By far one of the best experiences I’ve had and will continue to work with her

Jill, More than a Therapist, is a Friend, that person that you can rely completely on, that i can open up about and feel validated, accepted, supported and guided... She has helped me through my journey of discovery and healing and i have been able to do it all with her tools, her support and care.
Hands down my best choice in life was to choose you as my therapist Jill!
