About me

Hello! My name is Jill, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 10 years of experience providing therapy services. I have worked in a wide range of settings including Correctional Facilities, Outpatient Care, and Integrated Health Care settings. I work with clients affected by anxiety, depression, adjustment, substance use and trauma.

I was raised in Southeastern Michigan, but have been in Northern Michigan for 8 years and am currently in the Traverse City area where I have settled into my home with our growing family of animals and children. I received my undergraduate degree in Sociology from The University of Michigan - Ann Arbor and my Masters in Social Work Degree from Wayne State University in Detroit.

I utilized a client centered approach in therapy, and utilize a variety of modalities including, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). Cognitive Behavioral Therapy allows us to explore the connection between our thoughts, feelings and behaviors, while Dialectical Behavioral Therapy has a focus on developing mindfulness skills and distress intolerance to manage symptoms. EMDR does have a focus on processing past traumas while implementing safe place techniques prior to processing.

Outside of my work as a therapist I am a Registered Yoga Instructor (RYT). I also enjoy cooking, reading, spending time outdoors with our animals along with enjoying the life of parenting twin boys!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Jill Rountree. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

Jill was a great counselor to get started with through betterhelp. Having intentional reflective conversations weekly was beneficial for me, and I feel that I made some personal progress. Unfortunately some scheduling issues came up and I was unable to continue, but I greatly appreciate our sessions!
