JILL CIONE, MA, LPC-INTERN
SUPERVISED BY JERE FORMAN, LPC-S
Jill believes all individuals possess value, purpose, and the ability to grow and be restored. Jill sees the therapeutic relationship as a sacred framework and partners with her clients during their journey. Jill endeavors to provide a safe, confidential space for clients to be authentic and open, through the use of mindfulness and realistic coping skills. Many times, clients need to reprocess traumatic or adverse life events in order to acquire adaptive, healthier behaviors and beliefs. When therapeutically appropriate, Jill utilizes the EMDR approach to facilitate acceptance and empowerment.
Jill’s counseling interests and passions include working with survivors of trauma, grief, loss, mindfulness-based therapy, and EMDR.
Jill was raised in Houston, Texas and moved to Dallas in 1988 upon graduating from Baylor University. Having had a career in pharmaceutical sales for 10 years, Jill focused on raising her four children and was able to begin her “dream career” of being a therapist by entering graduate school in 2006 at Dallas Theological Seminary. Jill enjoys pursuing her interests in therapy with continual education and certification opportunities. She and her husband have resided in the Dallas area for over 25 years.
