****As of March 16, 2020 - I have made the Decision to Transfer All Clients to Telehealth Due to COVID-19.***
Welcome to Central Iowa Therapy Solutions, LLC.
My name is Jill and I'm an Independently Licensed Social Worker in clinical practice treating a variety of conditions including depression, anxiety, trauma, and identity concerns. I'm passionate about walking with you and finding areas in your life you may not have been aware of before using an approach called "Internal Family Systems." You might find that various parts of your inner world have been hidden or creating problems that are contributing to your stress. I'm interested in working with individuals who are willing to look at these different parts and work with them and exploring parts that might be creating the most stress for you.
Currently, I'm utilizing some Enneagram-informed cognitive work to help link IFS, personality type, and cognitive therapy as a tool to help work with individuals promoting change. I'll be trained in the summer of 2020 through Jerome Wagner, ph.D - Loyala University utilizing the narrative tradition.
I love learning and most of my clients find me to be warm and open. I have a good sense of humor and have learned to incorporate meditation, and mindfulness in my practice.
Update: March 16th, 2020 - I will be varying my schedule based on personal and client needs and will work with existing clients and understand the chaotic scheduling needs everyone is experiencing - especially for some essential workers. However, due to demand I cannot take new clients at this point.
I also may be slow in delivering e-mail responses and for exisiting clients, will provide you with information and platforms for communication so you will be able to set up appointments with me. I encourage you to keep you to continue therapy even though telehealth may be uncomfortable for you.
We need to continue our work together and I've written a piece on Medium to help understand why speficially below. (Please Click)
Mental Health After Covid-19
Please note my location: 12951 University Avenue, Suite 203, Clive, Iowa - 50325. Not all websites linking me will show the correct address. Prior to your first appointment it is often helpful to click on the location tab for photos and directions to locate my office suite.
Forms are located on the "forms" page. I request this be completed and given to me at the time of your first appoimentment.
Feel free to contact me on my "contact/location" page. If I am taking new clients we can meet and and decide together if we'd be a good fit working together.
As of March 27th, 2020 - I will not be doing new intakes to make sure I'm able to take care of exisiting clients. I have been informed that Prairie Wellness in Des Moines are still accepting new clients telehealth and have capacity. Thank you for your understanding. Please click on the link above to reach out to their agency.
Please note, I only accept private pay or Blue Cross and Blue Shield insurance at this time and do not treat people under the age of 18. Because of the number of calls I receive per day, I find it useful and more timely to respond to e-mail. My e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact me through my contact page below.
Regular, in hour office times will resume when the CDC reports safety risk has lowered and telehealth will not be my standard practice following.
