Practice Information
I provide individual, couples and group psychotherapy.

Although I have worked with many clients with varying issues, my specialties include issues of loss and bereavement, life-threatening illnesses (such as cancer), depression, anxiety and fertility issues. I have particular interest in working with suicide survivors (individuals who have lost a loved one to suicide), families dealing with grief and loss, cancer patients, young adults dealing with illness, couples dealing with fertility issues.

Since much of my focus is grief and loss issues, I have the most experience with clients that are in great distress. I strive to concentrate on the present, focus on the future and explore the past to understand current behaviors and coping. I create a safe place where clients can focus on their goals and acquire more coping tools to adjust to life changes.

Education

Bio:
My approach to therapy is primarily systemic. Systems theory seeks to address people not at an individual level, as is often the focus of other forms of therapy, but as people in relationship, dealing with the interactions of groups, their patterns and dynamics. Generally some disruption within your personal system, such as an illness, loss or death, brings you to therapy. Examining the relationships that are in your everyday life—friends, family, co-workers and communities—help determine what you would like to work on to give you better coping strategies.

I also use psychodynamic methods to help determine how you learned to deal with everyday life. Most of our adult behaviors are rooted in how we grew up and values we were taught as children. By discussing the past, we can understand the present and how to make changes in our thinking and behaviors for the future.

Most symptoms are adaptive. There are usually very good reasons why people are operating in ways that may not make sense to themselves or others. I work with my clients to deepen their understanding of their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Over the course of treatment, this collaborative process can lead to positive change and self-growth.

Recommendations
Mary Koludrovic, Chicago
I've worked professionally with Jill for several years and I would highly recommend anyone to her for therapy. I know her to be a very compassionate and thoughtful person with a calming presence.
Jessica Niekrasz, Riverside
Jill is an amazingly insightful and delightfully direct person. Working with Jill you will find that she cuts through all the words and nonsense we use to "get by" and targets the issue at hand. She's compassionate and helpful, supportive and proactive. I highly recommend her for anyone who is looking, truly looking, for the source of issues in a safe environment.
