Jill M. Ellingson, MA, LMFT


I am very experienced in and passionate about helping couples work through relationship challenges. Emotional disconnection, sexual issues, communication struggles, “roommate syndrome,” infidelity, addiction issues and social inequality are just a few of the common challenges most couples face at one time or another in their relationships. You don’t have to figure out solutions on your own! I bring an encouraging and balanced approach to couples counseling that includes exploring and affirming one another’s needs, forgiving past hurts and reconnecting hearts.


I work with individuals of all ages, including children and adolescents seeking help or change in order to meet life’s demands. With adults, I specialize in anxiety, depression, self-confidence and relationship struggles, as well as grief and loss. With teens, my strengths and experience are in self-harm, anxiety, depression, body image and belonging/friendship issues. With younger children, I am trained in and utilize play therapy as children express themselves best through play.


Whether you are struggling with misbehaving children, challenging teens, relationship issues with siblings, parents or blended families, all families have their unique dynamics and challenges. I believe that love is at the heart of most families; sometimes we just need help reconnecting and finding that common ground for the healing process to begin!
