Hey! I'm Jill!
If you want to read about all of "The Important Stuff," like my education and licensure and training, please scroll down a bit.
In addition to being a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, business owner, wife and mother, lover of cheese, board game geek, hiker, and music obsessed taco enthusiast ...
I am also a recovering perfectionist and a chronic overachiever. I have personally experienced (and conquered!) crippling insomnia. I've spent weeks agonizing over which pillows to buy for the new sofa. I've written things that I've already done down on my "to-do" list just so I can immediately cross them off and give myself a little gold star. I've said "yes" many (oh so many!) times because I didn't want to let anyone, especially myself, down. Sometimes it's been so bad that it felt like my life was just one big overwhelming, relentless ride in a blender of chaos.
Over the years, through experiences both in my personal life and within my training in the therapy realm, I have learned quite a bit about myself and the people that we share this big ol' rotating rock with. Instead of being wrapped up in a never ending loop of "shoulds," I have learned to embrace the reality that there are lots of 'okay' ways to do things. I have learned to face uncertainty without dread. I have learned to keep things in perspective instead of viewing every little hiccup as an apocalyptic disaster.
With the combination of my therapeutic know-how and your desire for change, we can work together to create real and lasting change so you can live the life you really want.
Welcome to therapy, my friend!
