Do you want to get the most out of every day and live your best life? Good health, both physical and emotional, is the key to happiness. Let me help you get there.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the states of California and Florida (California #99995 and Florida #MT3586) and I hold a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology with an Emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pepperdine University, and a post graduate certification in Thanatology from Hood College.
I work with adults and teens facing challenges including cancer and chronic illnesses, anxiety, stress management, life transitions, relationship issues, grief and loss. My approach is both client-centered and solution-focused, and I incorporate many other treatment modalities based on my clients’ needs. I am available by video for all California or Florida residents.
Hi, I’m Jill!
I work from a place of genuine curiosity about my clients’ lives and their relationships, respecting and honoring each person’s path as unique and different. I strive for a collaborative and compassionate practice with my clients.
In addition to my private practice, I have facilitated cancer support groups for adults and teens since 2013 at Cancer Support Community Redondo Beach.

My Virtual Office
I moved to St. Petersburg, FL in 2020, closing my physical office in Redondo Beach, CA. All therapy sessions are conducted by a secure video platform, making therapy easily accessible to clients located anywhere in California and Florida. Wondering if virtual therapy works? The answer is YES! Video sessions are just as effective as in person therapy, click to read more about video session efficacy.
You might get a visit from Maggie or Eloise – they’ve become my co-therapists since closing my physical office. They are 13 years old but still full of energy! Many clients enjoy their occasional antics and the comfort that they bring to our sessions.
