LICENSED MARRIAGE AND FAMILY THERAPIST
Jill Woolworth’s passion is to come alongside struggling men and women, strengthen marriages, and resolve parenting challenges. She also helps individuals and families find strength and hope in dealing with codependency and addiction.
Jill finds her diverse experiences as a NYC banker, small group leader, a cappella singer, and Co-Founder of Women of Vision Fairfield County enhance her professional ability to work effectively with high capacity clients.
Jill has a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Fairfield University and undergraduate degrees from Stanford University in French Literature and from Dartmouth College in Language. She is an Emotionally Focused Educated Therapist and a member of the American Association for Marriage & Family Therapists.
She uses creative imagery to help clients think differently about their lives. Her recently published book, The Waterwheel, Practical Wisdom for 64 Common Concerns, is an easy to read treasure trove of whimsically-illustrated, simply-worded nuggets of wisdom about self-talk, relationships, marriage, losses, parenting, and difficult situations.
Jill also wrote and plays the role of Dr. Divorcia on Women, a video available on Youtube, that offers viewers an opportunity to look deeper at lies that we all too often believe about our performance, our bodies, our identity, our voice, our sexuality, and even our religion. This creative and unique one-woman-show is designed to set women free from the bonds that hold them hostage to shame and fear.
She has been married 44 years, has three grown daughters, three sons-in-law, three grandchildren, and a dog who works alongside her named Hank.
