When you’re in session with Jillian, what you will notice right away is her ability to hold space for you to work through your concerns while also helping you move towards your desired outcome. Jillian’s strength comes in her ability to be non-judgmental while also helping you grow into the greatest version of yourself.
Jillian’s counselling is deeply systemic. This means that she has a deep awareness and understanding of how society, power and oppression may be a part of the struggles you are currently facing. With this lens, Jillian will help you understand the multiple facets of your concerns, which helps create more sustainable healing. Jillian recognizes the power that she holds as a white, cis woman; she actively works to ensure that you feel empowered in the counselling room and beyond.
Jillian has a special interest in supporting those who struggle to accept their body. Jillian takes a body positive and health-at-every-size approach, meaning she believes your body is worthy exactly the way it is. She can support you in managing concerns such as disordered eating, over-exercising, intrusive thoughts about your body, anxiety and much more. Whether its concerns regarding your body's size, disability, ethnicity, or chronic pain, Jillian is ready to support you in shifting to a place of acceptance, where you can learn to enjoy your body the way it is.
