Hi, I’m Jill
I am fascinated by the space between what is and what can be. I provide warm, collaborative and client-centered online counselling services to clients seeking clarity, support and opportunities for growth.
I have a Masters degree in Social Work from the University of British Columbia and am registered with the BC College of Social Workers, and with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.
My clients say that I am understanding, open-minded and direct.
About My Approach
My approach to counselling is flexible and holistic. I hold a few core values and beliefs, which show up in counselling sessions in a variety of ways:
Change happens in the context of a warm, trusting, respectful and collaborative relationship. I strive to be authentic and real in every client interaction.
When we own our story, we own our choices and our lives. Examining our story, and how we relate to it, changes how we interpret our world for the better. Narrative Therapy has strong roots in anti-oppressive practice. Together we can discover how to reclaim the power in your life from the systems that seek to undermine it.
When we know our true selves we can make decisions in line with our values and preferred ways of being. I ask gentle questions that encourage examination and greater self-knowledge.
Trauma changes how we experience the world. Together we can work on ways to navigate and manage the effects of past trauma in a safe, collaborative and respectful manner.
Clarity, Connection and Growth
I am based on the west coast (best coast!) of British Columbia. I provide counselling sessions exclusively online to clients from anywhere!
Two rad young adults call me mom, and two small dogs share my home. In true west coast style I love the ocean, yoga, coffee and nature.
I love meeting people and would love to get to know you. Book a complimentary consultation to discover if we are a good fit.
