Professional statement

Jillian's approach is to help you move toward self-actualization, greater hope, and authenticity. She is trauma-informed, and engages in evidence-based practices, while also integrating mindfulness and acceptance modalities.

Jilian has vast experience working with underserved populations; therefore, it helps her see the world differently, and provides her with a unique perspective when helping her patients overcome past trauma. While she currently works with youths, she also treats adults.

It is her intention to provide every client with a space to learn about their inner strength, increase their confidence, and face challenges head on. When treating patients for past trauma, she helps them not only overcome that trauma, but ensures her patients do not go forward thinking that event defines them. Instead, it is a chapter in their book, but not the entire life story. She is passionate about every patient, and hopes to help them overcome the past, but also face the future with a newly found strength.

Message to clients

I make it my mission to provide my clients with a compassionate and inclusive space so that they can navigate their life challenges. Whether it is overcoming a traumatic event in life, or dealing with the stress and challenges of veering toward adulthood, I’m here for my clients.

I remind myself and others that “we are more than the worst things we have done,” a quote from my favorite novel, Just Mercy.

I like to look at therapy from a macro-level, and I have vast experience treating those from underserved populations; therefore, I can relate to the unique challenges you are encountering if you too are part of that population.

I’m here for every stage of the healing process, and I will make you recognize the progress you’ve made so that you can see how you are moving forward and never feel as though you are moving backward. We will work together to unleash your inner strength. No one should feel like they should suffer through what they’ve gone through, and I’m here to make sure you know that every day, and know that you have someone you can come to in your darkest hour.
