Her experience at the Psychological Services Center at Northern Illinois University have given her variety of experiences in psychodiagnostics assessments, exposure therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy, Gottman therapy (Level 1), and other research-based treatments for a range of diagnoses. She also has had the opportunity to work in two neuropsychological practices furthering her knowledge in testing for a variety of disorders.

She considers all family and environmental factors while using evidence-based practices (e.g., cognitive behavioral therapy) in her assessment and therapeutic approaches. She enjoys working collaboratively with her clients and their families to ensure all voices are heard in the treatment or testing process. Jill is excited to learn and grow professionally through her work at Konick and Associates.
