About me

I am an Licensed Professional Counselor with over 16 years of experience . I specialize in treating adoption related issues, trauma, grief and loss, parenting issues. I am certified in TF-CBT, trained in EMDR and is and adoption competent professional. I serve children, adolescents, adults and families. I graduated with undergraduate degree in Psychology from Auburn University and with her masters degree in community counseling from Auburn University Montgomery.

Dr. Brené Brown says "When we deny the story, it defines us. When we own the story, we can write a brave new ending.", I believe this to be true and work with clients to create new endings through understanding our own stories, identifying triggers to block our growth, and identifying steps towards achieving desired outcomes. I provide a relatable, empathic, and calming approach. Because each person holds unique qualities and circumstances, I work to holistically understand clients and tailor the counseling experience around clients' specific needs and desires.

Truly everything I never knew I needed and so much more! Responsive and honest in the way I needed. She is great with worksheets and prompts. We did several edmr over this service cannot say enough good things!

I've said this before, but Jill is great. She's very understanding, she listens and above all, is empathetic. It's nice to feel "heard" and feel like somebody is in your corner.

I worked with Jill over the timespan of 15 months and my life has changed entirely in that time. Her open mind, listening ear and kind, understanding guidance has helped me to overcome so many struggles, some of which I never expected to overcome in my lifetime in such a relatively small timeframe. If there is ever another opportunity or need for counseling in my future life, I'd be glad to work with her again.
