About Me

Greetings, my name is Jillian Holguin, and it brings me great joy to introduce myself as a dedicated and compassionate Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My practice is based in Hudson County, New Jersey, with a specific focus on downtown Jersey City, nestled in the vibrant neighborhood of Exchange Place.

My journey into the field of social work began with a strong foundation of knowledge and empathy. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Social Work from the esteemed Seton Hall University, where I delved into the multifaceted aspects of human behavior, societal systems, and the profound impact of interpersonal connections.

Eager to deepen my understanding and expand my therapeutic skill set, I embarked on an accelerated program at Rutgers University. It was there that I pursued my Masters in Social Work, graduating Summa Cum Laude and being honored with induction into the prestigious Phi Alpha Honor's Society. This experience enriched my clinical acumen and fortified my commitment to providing the highest standard of care to my clients.

Recognizing the evolving landscape of healthcare and the immense potential of technology, I sought additional expertise in Telehealth facilitation from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. This certification allows me to seamlessly integrate modern technology into therapeutic practices, ensuring accessibility and convenience for those seeking support.

To further enhance my ability to assess and diagnose complex mental health issues, I pursued a Certificate in Advanced Assessment and Diagnosis from New York University. This specialized training equips me with the tools to comprehensively evaluate individuals, consider the intricacies of their unique circumstances, and develop personalized treatment plans tailored to their specific needs.

As a therapist, my passion lies in providing a safe and nurturing space for individuals to explore their inner worlds, heal from past wounds, and cultivate their personal growth. I firmly believe in the power of human connection, and my therapeutic approach is rooted in empathy, collaboration, and evidence-based practices.

In our work together, I am dedicated to helping you navigate life's challenges, whether they stem from relationship difficulties, trauma, anxiety, depression, or any other concerns you may be facing. Through a holistic lens, we will embark on a journey of self-discovery, unlocking your inherent strengths and empowering you to lead a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

I am honored to be a part of your healing journey, and I look forward to accompanying you on this transformative path toward well-being.
