About Me

First and foremost, congratulations on your interest in receiving services to benefit you and your family! It is important for you to know that I recognize YOU as the ultimate expert on your own strengths and needs. I would like to help you set realistic goals, create plans that work, and move towards positive change in all arenas of life.

I have extensive experience working with adult survivors of childhood emotional, physical, and/or sexual abuse. I am also skilled in treating mood disorders, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, postpartum depression, behavior disorders, attachment difficulties, adjusting to change, and relationship issues. You can learn more about me at www.flourishasheville.com.

My husband and I have provided care for 80+ foster children over the years, which has led me to a unique perspective on attachment with others, family dynamics, parenting, and living with mental health issues in your household. In addition to my private practice, I provide Clinical Supervision to LCSWAs who are new to the field, I provide community trainings on mental health issues, and I work part-time in my local hospital's Emergency Department providing intervention for individual suffering mental health crises.

Thank you for considering allowing me to support you on your journey of growth, healing, and flourishing!

Jill has been fantastic. She has really taken the time to get to know me and push me to who I really am. She has also helped me to feel confident in overcoming any obstacles that have presented them in my life. She is a very kind and yet firm person. Challenging me to face me and get the best out of me.

Jill Williams is incredibly empathetic and she just "get's it". She's been immensely helpful to me over the past few months!

Written by D.E on Sep 12, 2015 after counseling with Jill for 12 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, career, and depression

I love Jill's humor and compassion. Her email is the first I open when I check my email and her advice is always timely and helpful!

Awesome! Glad I found the right counselor for me!

Written by L.I on May 28, 2015 after counseling with Jill for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and depression

Jill has helped me open up about issues that were dragging me down. I am still in process and have further to go but after 1-2 months I feel uplifted. She has proven to be a wonderful guiding hand in my life.

Written by S.A on Apr 13, 2015 after counseling with Jill for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, sleeping, self esteem, career, and depression

Jill has an uncanny ability to pinpoint specific issues that one may not think (especially me) was still effecting them. She gives great advice and is warm and encouraging. She's not judgmental, responsive and has many different ways to assist in working on a wide variety of areas. In fact, I haven't found any area that she hasn't been able to help me in. I really cannot say enough good things about her. I have seen therapists in the past but never one who really had a gift like hers.

Written by J.U on Apr 04, 2015 after counseling with Jill for 15 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and depression

Jill is the ideal of what a good counselor should be: empathetic, nonjudgmental, competent and engaged. She responds quickly - within 36 hours or less. She asks great questions, understands mental health issues, and family dynamics. Working with Jill has helped me focus better on what my issues are and implement some change to make things better. Highly recommended!

Written by P.A on Dec 30, 2014 after counseling with Jill for 1 month on issues concerning lgbt, trauma and abuse, sleeping, and self esteem

Jill is amazing. She is incredibly responsive, helpful, insightful, and constantly tells me I am being ridiculous when I am in fact being ridiculous, and lets me know I am being reasonable when I am being reasonable. I feel so much better knowing she is there, and not only able to help me but eager to do so. She is wonderful and I hold her beyond the highest regard.

Written by A.M on Oct 26, 2014 after counseling with Jill for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, career, and depression

Since starting my sessions with Jill, I have made major life epiphanies, and am so grateful to now have a new map for life. I realized, worrying really is a choice, and am happy to have a place to find certainty in such an uncertain world. Thanks Jill!

Written by J.E on Sep 23, 2014 after counseling with Jill for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, career, and depression

I recently started working with Jill and I can't say enough good things! She is wonderful! She responds to me in the most timely fashion, her responses are thoughtful and encouraging and helpful to get me thinking and taking action to help myself. Discovering Betterhelp.com and getting to work with Jill has been a gift!

Written by M.I on Sep 17, 2014 after counseling with Jill for 25 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, anger, and career

Absolutely fantastic. She is professional and personable. I truly look forward to continuing my therapy with her.

Written by D.E on Sep 10, 2014 after counseling with Jill for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, career, and depression

I am really enjoying working with Jill. She is asking the right questions that help me think through things. She is so supportive yet still willing to make sure I am exploring everything fully. While we have really just begun our relationship, I feel that we are a much better match than I was with the therapist I was seeing face-to-face. This is my first experience with online counseling and I was afraid it would lack a certain quality but, I have to say that with Jill, I am getting more out of it than I ever would have expected.

Written by V.E on Sep 03, 2014 after counseling with Jill for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, self esteem, and depression

Jill is great! Its like talking to a good friend who lets you vent and understands both sides. She offers advice without condeming you for how you've handled things in the past. Things have definitely been improving for me ! Im looking forward to the future.

Written by C.H on Sep 02, 2014 after counseling with Jill for 28 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, and depression

She lets me vent, get my self sorted out and then offers advice without coming down on me about my past or current choices. She has been working with me for about a month, and I am seeing results.

Written by S.H on Aug 19, 2014 after counseling with Jill for 3 weeks on issues concerning self esteem, and career

Jill has everything that an ideal counselor could offer so far:
prompt response;
professional advise;
showing true compassion and caring.

Could not ask for more. Too bad can't meet her in person.
