       About me


My name is Jillian Holguin and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Hudson County, New Jersey.  I received a Bachelors of Arts in Social work from Seton Hall University. From there, I completed the accelerated program at Rutger's University receiving a Masters in Social Work graduating Summa Cum Laude and was inducted in the Phi Alpha Honor's society.  I received a certification in Telehealth facilitation from Thomas Jefferson University Hospital as well as a Certificate in Advanced Assessment and Diagnosis from New York University.


I am also a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), The Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA), The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), NJ Chamber of Commerce as well as The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB). 

I specialize in trauma specifically sexual trauma, anxiety/depression, obsessive thought disorders, addictions and ADD/ADHD.  I take pride in the integrity and quality of the treatment I provide my clients. I am grateful that my client’s have developed such a comfort level to express and process severely traumatic events and or their own victimization that has occurred in their lives; especially those disclosing for the first time. It is an honor to be with you on this journey towards you achieving your goals.  

I have experience providing therapeutic services to an array of populations from early childhood to late adulthood, specifically at-risk youth/ juveniles and adult sex offenders. I am grateful for the various settings in which I have had the opportunity to complete my clinical work in and influential and supportive clinical supervisors that have made a positive impact on my personal and professional growth. In addition, I have worked in treatment settings such as an early childhood partial care program, juvenile correction facilities, adult outpatient clinics, intensive in-home services, out  of home treatment settings serving at-risk youth, and specialized sex offender treatment/detention alternative treatment home programs.

We give humans the therapeutic tools to optimize their individuality to reach not only their goals but their most desired version of themselves. 

It is my intention to take my clients to the next level and be a positive support system throughout any obstacles, life transitions, and or whatever life throws at them. It's no longer about empowering individuals but allowing them to see that they've had the power within them to accomplish their treatment goals.

  • My Philosophy

    Jillology: Put Yourself First. Why? Because if you don't, no one else will. But WE can TOGETHER. The most important relationship you'll have is with yourself. It's important you are taking care of you to optimize on having the most fulfilling lifestyle that you desire.

  • Fight for a better world

    This concept "fight for a better world" is the understanding that this life is a fight. Everyday you fight for yourself meaning YOUR WORLD. Because ultimately, as individuals, it is your world. Your world is different from everyone else's. Let's Light up your world.
