Jillian Gottesman, LCSW

My name is Jillian Gottesman and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.

Being human and navigating through life isn’t always easy, and no one should have to go through life’s challenges alone. Every person deserves a space to process complex feelings and emotions, free of any judgment or bias.

I intimately understand the complexities of life and the desire to create authentic meaning, purpose and connection. I bring empathy, humor, human connection and professional experience to help you achieve your therapeutic goals.

I have had experience providing services with unique populations including mental health, developmental disabilities, chronically ill individuals and helping manage grief and loss. I believe therapy can be a wonderfully beneficial tool.

I use a number of therapeutic modalities including but not limited to Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Strengths Based, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness. I use a holistic, strength based, person centered approach to guide my practice. I foster a safe space for you to be free to come as you are and to help you grow.

Lets get started!


My goal is to help you blossom into the most authentic version of yourself and heal the wounds holding you back from living a full life.
