A dynamic personality with a flair for film, media, and social psychology. Jill started out working as an associate television producer for radio personality and LCSW, Marilyn Kagan, producing the Marilyn Kagan Show.
Jill is inquisitive and is always in a venture to find new ways to inspire people and help them get through certain life moments. When she first got divorced over 14 years ago, she searched for inspirational stories from other divorced women, and came up with little to nothing. So in an effort to connect with woman going through a similar situation, Jill started her own column called “Mother May I?” for a writers website called www.prettywitty.com
The column gained widespread recognition and shortly afterwards, Jill was contacted by an editor of an erotica website and was asked if she’d be interested to write an article. Always up for new excitement, Jill agreed. This was the beginning of Jill’s authorship. Since being approached to write the first article, she went on to write erotic fiction, selling her short stories to AmiraPress, Oysters & Chocolate, and Justus Roux’s Erotica’s tales. An accomplished writer, Jill co-wrote and co-executive produced a two woman play titled “Dial Logs” at the Complex Theater in Hollywood, California.
What distinguishes Jill from other Marriage, Family and Sex therapist is her realistic views and ability to treat with an open mind. She gives the client opportunities to really blossom into the vision that is most pro-active.
In addition Jill is also very dynamic and has achieved a lot of recognition in her role as a sex and relationship therapist. She was able to combine her television background and her therapeutic experience to host a TV show for Discovery life called “Sex In Public.” Jill went undercover in the most unsuspecting places to get real people to open up about their sex lives. And they do!
If your looking for a therapist that is a recognized specialist in the field, distinguished, and comes with the type of expertise necessary to bridge success, then Jill will get you talking.
It’s necessary to open up and began that dialogue that is so poignant in therapy.

“I had a few issues I needed to work through, but the idea of seeing a therapist was just crazy. I knew I wasn’t crazy and the last thing I needed was to have someone treat me like I was. Over the years things just compounded until I reached my breaking point this year. I finally called Jill fully expecting that she could not help, especially not over the phone. The last 3 months have proven me wrong consistently as we addressed the “little quirks” that I have been avoiding. Things have improved so much at home and work. I wish I called sooner.”
