About JILL MACKEY
Hi, I'm Jill Mackey! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and
Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor in the State of New Jersey.
I obtained my Masters in Mental Health Counseling from Marist College as
well as a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice from
Roger Williams University.
My clinical framework includes existential techniques; client-centered
therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy as well as exploring family roles. I
have a range of experience from intensive in-home/in-school therapy with
adolescents, domestic violence shelters, inpatient rehabilitation with
substance abusers as well as outpatient therapy with individuals of all
ages and all diagnoses.
My special interest populations include working with the Disease of
Addiction, Individuals with Codependency (ACOA/Naranon),
Relationship/Attachment Difficulties, and Trauma.
From a strength's based perspective, I believe in helping clients learn
to live a clean & balanced life one moment at a time by encouraging them
too kind to themselves through the utilization of self-soothing techniques
and a non-judgmental stance.
In my free time, I enjoy swimming, playing tennis, meditating,
yoga, and running with my dog, Ry girl. I am also a purple belt in
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and love to compete in Spartan Races & Triathlons.
