Jillian Redefining Wellness is more than a business… it is the outpouring of my heart, stewardship of my talents, and means to enrich people’s lives through learning how to pursue mental, physical, and spiritual health. Each of these areas of wellness impact the others. Where we lack in one area, it can hurt us in another… and when we strengthen an area, wellness overflows into the other areas. Our level of wellness is not reliant on one aspect of our health, but is complex and interdependent.
It is my hope to be able to walk along side of you in your wellness journey to help you grow and develop in the ways you need. I consider it an honor and privilege to be invited into your journey and take my role and impact on your life very seriously. My aim is to serve you well and help to equip and empower you to become the best version of yourself through quality, convenient, online counseling, child behavior modification support, and fitness services.
My background is in Counseling. I have have a Bachelor’s in Psychology, Bachelor’s in Spanish, Minor in Spanish for Professionals, Minor in Bible, and a Master’s of Science in Education (MSEd) in Counseling. I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Illinois and will soon be sitting for the exam to receive my clinical license (LCPC). I also am a Certified School Counselor in the state of Illinois. Most of my clinical experience is with children and adolescents with behavior, mood/emotional, and spectrum disorders, as well as, their parents and families. My heart has grown for these parents, as they are under-served and have a difficult time being able to access traditional support services. This passion has driven me to starting teleheath services to ensure people are getting the support and care they need.
I also am a fitness enthusiast and played Varsity soccer in college, have been very active as a runner for many years, and more recently have embraced the benefits of strength training. In addition to running online bootcamps that provide workouts and nutritional support. I have also started Fitness Therapy Groups; using exercise, nutrition, and community support as natural treatments in someone’s therapeutic process.
In regard to spirituality, I am a follower of Jesus… aka Christian. I love bringing in the truths of Scripture and prayer into my work, but of course, only for clients who find this to be meaningful. I believe my faith fuels my excellent client care and ethical awareness.
Practicing what I preach is so important. I know that balancing and tending to my mental, physical, and spiritual health needs has not only allowed me to be successful, but live a life of fulfillment, peace, and joy… AND to provide quality care to my clients. I desire these same things for all people and look forward to working with you to obtain them! Please feel free to contact me via the form below.
