Jill E. Hughes, MA, LPCC
I have worked with individuals, children, new mothers, couples & survivors in the greater Denver area for more than 19 years. Having navigated the waters of motherhood, divorce, blended family, and a long, strong second marriage, I bring personal experience and context to many issues my clients approach me to work with. Through a long and passionate study of counseling psychology, I have collected significant resources to be a source of comfort, clarity, and guidance to clients.
Since 2000, I have run a cozy and successful home counseling practice. I also see clients in an additional office located at the Whole Health Center in Lone Tree. Whole Health Center is a holistic medicine office where I work alongside like-minded practitioners and have opportunity to provide clients access to alternative healing modalities which may compliment a personal commitment to psychological, relational, and physiological well-being.
EDUCATION & SPECIALIZATIONS
In 2000, I earned my MA in Counseling Psychology from Naropa University. Since 2007, I have specialized in Postpartum Depression and related mood disorders following training with Karen Kleiman, LCSW, expert on PPD and author of many books, including "This Isn't What I Expected". I have completed both levels of Dr. Karyl McBride’s training regarding adult survivors of narcissistic family systems. I am currently in a training program for Internal Family Systems (IFS) which began in October and will run through June of 2019. I am a believer in growing individually throughout life. I think it is one’s personal responsibility to look at themselves and what they bring to the equation of their unique and individual life experience.
I offer counseling and psychotherapy for the following individuals and issues in the greater Denver area:
Individuals, children, new mothers, couples, parents & survivors
Trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, EMDR
Marital issues, pre-marital counseling, divorce, breakup and separation counseling
Support for survivors of narcissistic & borderline family systems
Postpartum Depression & related mood disorders
Parenting and navigating blended families
