Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LMSW
Compassionate Psychotherapy to Help You
Find Peace and Happiness
I believe in taking an integrative approach to help others heal, grow and become their best selves. This is how Inner Guidance Counseling Center was born! Created to help YOU become your best self and live your best life. With over 13 years of experience in the field of mental health, I offer my clients the tools they need to help navigate through undesired patterns, maladaptive coping skills and create a safe environment for them to fully show up as they are and allow healing and growth to occur. Because my approach includes elements of cognitive, somatic, experiential, gestalt, humanistic, psychodynamic, and holistic therapies, we get to the core issues of what is causing and perpetuating my clients’ symptoms and issues. Over the years I have worked with children, teens, adults, couples, and families and specialize in treating anxiety/panic, stress management, depression, communication difficulties, affair and betrayal recovery, bereavement/grief, low self-esteem, navigating life transitions and childhood trauma. I have my license in the state of Michigan and California as an LMSW/LCSW and obtained my Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Central Michigan University. I have completed the Level 1 Gottman Method Couples Therapy Training, I am a certified Integrative Body Psychotherapist/Teacher and am currently undergoing the training to become a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider (CMHIMP).
“Jillian is an amazing therapist. She is working with myself, my husband and us together. We both could not ask for a more knowledgeable, caring, attentive therapist. She has good availability and does what she can to work with our schedule. She is very understanding and patient. She guides us through our thoughts and conversations with compassion. We are so lucky to have found her. She has saved our marriage and personal sanity. She even has helped me with issues with my son and encouraged testing which turned out to be a new diagnosis for him. Truly life changing. Thanks!!”
