Jillian Boelke, Registered Marriage and Family Associate IMF 112068
Jillian believes that therapy is a collaborative experience and approaches each therapeutic relationship with compassion, respect, empathy, and warmth. She is highly sensitive to cultural and societal influences and the impact they have on each person’s unique experiences. Jillian believes that healing is non-linear and creates a safe and non-judgmental environment to help clients heal from past events. She draws from psychodynamic, relational, attachment, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and somatic theories. She bases her approach on the individual needs and pace of each client.
Jillian works with adults and adolescents in the following areas: depression, anxiety, life transitions, body image concerns, disordered eating, relationship issues, trauma, women’s mental health, blocks in creativity, attachment, family issues, sexuality, LGBTQ identity, gender identity, cultural identity, codependency, grief and loss, dating, and career development. She also works with couples to explore ruptures in intimacy, communication, trust, and authentic expressions of care and compassion. She is interested in exploring the origin of conflict and helping partners create more meaningful and nourishing relationships.
Jillian graduated from Pepperdine University with a Masters in Clinical Psychology, emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy. She received comprehensive training at The Women’s Clinic and Family Counseling Center where she worked one-on-one with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, life transitions, career anxiety, and other symptoms of distress. She also worked in a dual diagnosis intensive outpatient program where she used neurofeedback therapy to help clients process traumatic events and symptoms related to addiction. Jillian currently works as a clinical specialist and school instructor for the Prevention and Education department at UCLA Santa Monica Rape Treatment Center. In this role, Jillian educates students in various high schools in Los Angeles about consent, sexual violence and the promulgation of rape culture. She empowers students to intervene and create lasting change in their communities.
