About Me

Hello. My name is Jyl Adams. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Idaho. I earned my Bachelor of Social Work at the University of Nevada, Reno and my Master of Social Work at Boise State University. I owned my own practice for eleven years working with individuals, couples, children and families focusing on issues such as depression, anxiety, parenting and family struggles, trauma and abuse, grief and loss, as well as life changes.

I believe in a strengths-based approach utilizing cognitive behavioral and solution focused techniques. Making the choice to seek counseling is a difficult one and I am happy you have decided to reach out. The first order of business is for us to develop a strong and trusting therapeutic relationship so you feel confident to express yourself in a safe and supportive environment. I believe our work is based on a team approach where we work together to achieve your desired goals. Once we identify your desired goals I can provide tools to help you achieve those goals.

I look forward to working with you.

I was skeptical of online counseling before I met Jyl. She changed my mind completely. I feel like she truly cares about my well being! She addresses every issue that arises with a non biased view and then gives me the tools I need to use to work on issues when they arise ! I am forever grateful for her in helping me during this difficult time of my life! She has me smiling at the end of every session even if the beginning I was in tears!! She helps me pick up and get out of my own head and helps me believe in myself and gives me the tools to grab life and make the best out of each and every day!

Jyl is amazing. You can tell she genuinely cares about people. I always feel better after we’ve talked and she’s also great at giving actionable feedback or things to think about/focus on during the week. To make actual, real changes in life, that’s the kind of approach I need. She is the best and I’d recommend BetterHelp based on her alone.

I think Jyl is a very down to earth considerate counselor. I love our chats I always feel comfortable and my feelings taken into account.

Jyl is wonderful. Easy to talk with and I don't feel a sense of nervousness before a counseling session. She has done quite a lot for me and I am thankful for her.

So far my time with Jyl has been really great. She's helped me identify signs of my anger & how to manage that. She's very kind & seems to really understand my issues & has great ways to help me with the things I'm wanting & needing addressed. I'm really happy I found this online therapy because with my job I just couldn't go to an office visit type of therapy, this has been a wonderful experience & I'm looking forward to the great support I know I have here to move forward in my life.

Jyl is absolutely incredible as a counselor. Despite my less than ideal situation and life choices, she has the extraordinary professional ability to see past preconceptions and see the root of my issue and be as supportive and constructive as possible. She will always point out victories that I have missed, and in the most supportive way possible, offer ways I can improve my situation and myself. Absolutely incredible.
