Personal Statement

Jill didn’t grow up intending to be a therapist. In fact, when she Jill2croppedgraduated with a degree in English literature, she wanted to be a screenwriter and began graduate studies at UCLA Film School. Her plans suddenly changed when one night she was violently attacked. In the aftermath, she couldn’t find anyone who was skilled to help her deal with the nightmares, the fear, the sudden panic. As she recovered from this trauma, she decided to study psychology and to train as a psychotherapist so that she could help people in similar situations.

That was more than three decades ago. Today there are far more therapists equipped to deal with sexual abuse and post-traumatic stress problems. But Jill didn’t stop there. Like most of us, she has had other problems and challenges that have come up in her life over the years. Each time she has taken them as an opportunity not only to heal herself but also to learn more about helping others experiencing similar problems.

In her practice today, Jill works with a wide variety of people who come from all over California, and she also provides phone coaching to people across the country. She especially enjoys working with couples who are struggling to live together, to stay together without giving up who they really are, and couples who are aiming to part gracefully. Jill’s aim is to help each of her clients repair and strengthen their relationships.

My Approach to Helping I truly believe that healing comes from exploring and working through what “comes up” in your mental, physical, energetic, and spiritual bodies.
