Jill has past medical knowledge as well as crisis intervention training and is skilled in performing specialized assessments, addressing complex psychiatric, mental health, and substance use disorders utilizing a diverse range of research-based models and clinical interventions. She is a multifaceted counselor who enjoys practicing from a multimodal approach recognizing that everyone’s recovery is unique and deserves a treatment plan that focuses on specific needs tailored to their personal journey. She also feels that self-appreciation, forgiveness, and love are important in recovery, and enjoys helping clients find these important attributes within themselves.
“I prefer to envision us as pieces of shattered stained glass. As we heal from our addictions and soothe our mental health, we begin to pick up our beautifully broken pieces and glue them back together. The pieces fit differently once they have fractured, allowing us to create a new version of ourselves. A self who is stronger, more resilient, and beautifully mended; allowing our light to shine through our cracks, and lead others to the path of recovery.” – Jill
