About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with experience helping people with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, self-harm, eating disorders, OCD, grief, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, and challenging life transitions. Some of my experience has been focused on helping people who have an unhealthy relationship with food overcome unhealthy eating behaviors and feel at home in their bodies.

My counseling style is non-judgmental, compassionate, and based on my belief that each person is unique and served best by an individualized approach in helping them to achieve their goals. My integrative approach combines elements of several therapy modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, person centered therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and solution focused therapy. I like to get feedback from the individuals with whom I work in order to better tailor the therapy experience to their specific needs and to ensure that they are benefiting from our interactions.

If you are feeling stuck and overwhelmed, I can help you find tools that will enable you to live a more meaningful and fulfilling life. It is one of my highest priorities that you feel empowered and supported on your journey from surviving to thriving. Change is possible and you don't have to do it alone. I look forward to working with you!

Jillian is great with new perspectives on old thoughts. She has a way of wording things so they make sense in new ways. Communication with her is easy and plentiful. She will definitely get to the root of your issue.

Jillian has been amazing. She is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had.

While I haven’t been counseling with Jillian for too long, her friendly and professional manner has been a nice change of pace and I 100% would recommend anyone to sit down with her.

She has given me the most active/constructive listening I've consistently received since reaching adulthood.
I feel heard and validated. It's a cathartic and pleasant experience.

Jillian has been amazing! I felt like I was talking to one of my friends (but obviously more qualified to offer advice) she made me feel comfortable to express myself and really helped me to understand what it is I’m feeling and how to manage unwanted feelings like anxiety. I will be recommending her to everyone I know. Thank you for everything!

Jillian is so awesome! I am always so pleased with her thoughtful responses. Jillian fosters a wonderful environment for non-judgmental, yet constructive conversation, and always asks insightful questions. I have had a really great experience thus far!

Jillian has been the perfect counselor for my needs. She pushes me to challenge myself when I need to be out of my comfort zone, and is there to listen when all I need support. She is incredibly knowledgeable about mental health issues and tactics to dealing with them and I am incredibly grateful for all she has done to help me!

Jillian has been a wonderful resource for my mental health and personal growth. She offers specific, focused insights and I especially appreciate her facility with a variety of evidence-based tactics. And she is very warm, so I feel connected even outside of the traditional office setting.

Jillian Meher, is doing a wonderful job helping me. I have a way better experience with her and feel good talking with her. She actually helps me understand things a little better and is really helping me push through the struggles I am having, way better then the therapist I have had in my past.

Written on Oct 10, 2019 after therapy with Jillian for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, self esteem, and career difficulties

Jillian is amazing. I have tried lots of other variations of therapy and nothing has ever worked like BetterHelp and Jillian. She's incredibly smart and engaging. She's truly one of the smartest people I have ever met. She offers resources that are always helpful. More than all of that, I feel like she cares. I feel like she is invested in my problems and is rooting for me.

Jillian has been great - she's very responsive, she is very personable. I feel like I'm really connecting with someone, which is already a hard thing to do with a stranger online. I will continue to work with her, as she's helped me a great deal so far.

Jillian is amazing and she always makes sure to check in on me :)

Written on Oct 01, 2018 after therapy with Jillian for 7 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and anger management

I love Jill! I feel completely comfortable talking to her about anything; it’s nice having someone there for me who I can always count on not to be judge mental of my emotional status.

Written on Sep 13, 2018 after therapy with Jillian for 3 weeks on issues concerning self esteem

At first I was hesitant about using BetterHelp. To be honest, the first therapist I met through this site was not helpful and we did not connect. After asking to change my therapist I was matched with Jillian. When Jillian first answered me back I immediately knew that she heard me out and cared about what I had said and what I needed help in. I feel like she listens to me and has already helped me realize so much about myself. She has been great so far!

Written on Jun 18, 2018 after therapy with Jillian for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, family, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career

Jilian is great- she’s very thoughtful and affirming and she’s given me some great tools to deal with my anxiety. Would recommend!

Written on Apr 19, 2018 after therapy with Jillian for 4 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, grief, eating, self esteem, and anger

Jillian rocks! She has been incredibly helpful to during a difficult time. This lady knows her stuff. She has given me valuable insight and resources, helping me cope in practical ways. Jillian really listens and remembers. I can't recommend her enough. She is great.

Written on Nov 25, 2017 after therapy with Jillian for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, family, and anger

Jillian has really grown on me. She’s like an intelligent and grounding friend that listens and validates while reminding you why you’re talking in the first place. She recommends new approaches to old bad habits, responds quickly, checks in when I go missing for a few days... I don’t think I could’ve asked for a better match. She’s great.

Written on Jul 31, 2017 after therapy with Jillian for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, and self esteem

Jillian is very easy to talk to and is beyond helpful. She's understanding, encouraging, and gives you the care you need in order to heal. This is my first time having a counselor and she definitely makes it a calming, kind, and easy process.

Work with me!
