Jill E. Hughes, MA, LPCC
I have worked with individuals, children, new mothers, couples & survivors in the greater Denver area for more than 16 years. A mother to three grown women, I now share the nest with my husband, two cats and one beagle. 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 am excited to announce that in 2017, I will begin seeing clients in an additional office located in the Whole Health Center in Lone Tree. Whole Health Center is a holistic medicine office where I'll 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.
