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!
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

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.

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!
