Jill specializes in supporting adults in self-discovery, coping with stress, and connecting with inner resources. Her approach is collaborative and focused on creating a warm and trusting space in which clients can explore their relationships to themselves and their lives. The hope is that clients feel connected and safe to learn and try out new ways of being. Therapy is a gradual process that flourishes with patience and commitment.
While she regularly works with people that reflect diverse backgrounds and goals, Jill's lived experience informs her interests and motivations. She identities as a transracial international adoptee and enjoys supporting other adoptees in navigating identity and family. A history of loss also led Jill to pursue specialized training in palliative care, which focuses on providing whole-person care to the seriously ill and their families. While these interests and experiences are highly specific, what Jill has gained through exploring them translates broadly to her work.
