“Jill has been a great resource for our family. Her extensive experience with parent’s and kid’s issues along with her clarity, compassion and insights have been extremely helpful for us. We honestly have not had this much personal growth and success with any prior therapists that we have sought out to help with our family issues. We highly recommend Jill's counseling services!”
"I was just telling my husband about Jill's river metaphor as well as the positive framework Jill set up for us at last month's parent support group - I love this idea that the energy and impulses of teen hood aren't just to be endured (by teen or family!) but to be appreciated and channeled in a healthy positive way... I'm looking forward to hearing about more concrete ways we can do that."

Jill quickly became one of the most important individuals in my life as she helped us through a very challenging period of our marriage. Unlike most therapists, she went deeper by providing a significant time commitment and a holistic approach that helped us truly grow and come out stronger.
Jill was both a foundation of strength and provided spiritual coaching to help us grow emotionally. As a result of her work, we have created a marriage with new levels of openness, communication and mutual understanding. It has led to a much more satisfying marriage and enhanced other personal and professional relationships in our lives. The tools she equipped us with will serve us for a lifetime! Thanks you Jill!

Jill is a counselor who really cares about her clients. I would highly recommend Jill for parents needing support with their parenting skills.
Jill is an expert in the field of re-parenting.
Jill has an amazing ability to understand what is going on with my inner child. Her skills for helping me find the resources I did not receive as a child have helped me tremendously as an adult.
She is gifted at role playing and being able to hold many perspectives: the parent, the child, and the underlying relationship dynamics. Her style is accepting, motivating, and loving.

Jill is a highly skilled counselor who gracefully weaves together keen, razor-sharp insight with a depth of authentic compassion. She nurtures her clients by paying attention to what is already working and building on that foundation of strength. Her passion for supporting families shines through in all that she does. I would without hesitation seek out Jill if I'm ready to do some deep, transformative work in a loving way.

I would without hesitation seek out Jill for counseling. She is smart, talented, perceptive, and compassionately rigorous in her counseling. She rocked my world -- in a good way. She asked me questions that challenged my fundamental perceptions of the world that keep me small, trapped, and limited, and invited me to consider what would be possible for myself without these limiting core concepts. As a result, I feel stronger, with much greater openness to what’s possible for me in my life.

Without judgement, Jill has helped us understand, accept and connect with our children to build the family life that works for us. It's a work in progress, but we are certain that any parenting challenge we will be up against Jill will be the first experts we call upon for support and guidance that is truly invaluable.

Jill is a consummate professional and she manages to give clear direction and advice with a full mind and compassionate heart at the same time.
Parenting can sometimes be a challenge, especially when the “kids” grow up and start to become their own people. It is different being a parent of a seven year old than a seventeen year old.
Jill helped us sort out the essential stuff. She advocated for our youngest child’s independence. But, most importantly for us she was able to affirm that our instincts were right and helped give us words to communicate what we needed in a way that our daughter could hear.
One of the wonderful things about working with her is that she has experience with many young adults. We have experience with two. When we brought up concerns or questions she was able to tell us, “That’s normal”. The combination of her experience, and her advocacy for young people coupled with sensitivity to how we could most effectively communicate our values to our family was a treat.

Todd and I feel like we have some great new tools to work with – and if EVER we need more help and guidance with parenting, we won’t hesitate to call you."
