Jill P. Haer, LPCMH, NCC, CCM

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor of Mental Health.  I have over 15 years of clinical experience working with a wide range of populations.  I have extensive experience providing Supervision to new Counselors.  I am nationally certified through the National Board of Professional Counselors and the Commission for Case Management.

I am originally from Somerset, PA and graduated from Frostburg State University in 2003.  I live on the beautiful eastern shores of Delaware and have been living here for over 20 years.  I enjoy the outdoors and raising my two wonderful boys.  The lower shores of Delaware is known as “Lower Slower Delaware.”  We enjoy watching the sun rise and set and staying present in the moment.

19 years of clinical experience

There are many approaches to therapy that have been developed in the decades since Freud first began his experimentation with the talking cure. Psychotherapy and counseling today come in many varieties, modalities and styles.  I tend to stick to 5 very important points.  1.  We are not creating a friendship but we are creating a good therapeutic alliance.  2. My Therapy techniques are evidence based. 3. I will always affirm your human dignity and worth and encourage your independence and competence. 4. I will always consider your history, biography, subjective experience and inner world. 5.  My goals are to facilitate new learning, new insights, new ways of thinking, communicating and managing emotion.

She obtained a Master’s  degree in Marriage and Family Therapy.  Her training encompasses family’s, couples, men and women, children and adolescents from various walks of life. JoLynn is comfortable helping diverse populations and personalities. JoLynn is confident in her skill set  to address stigmatized mental health concerns such as clinical depression, adjustment and anxiety disorders, bipolar, anger, trauma, and attachment issues from childhood. She also understands that regardless of stigma, victimization or choices; there are consequences that can leave a person struggling with deep rooted shame and guilt.

JoLynn has had the privilege of assisting  young adults and mid-career adults to establish their vocational goals. Parents of children have collaborated with her as it relates to parenting skills, behavior issues at home and school achievement goals as well as decisions with technical training and college choices.  Adult children have consulted with JoLynn  to problem solve and ascertain the best care for their elderly parents.

With ever increasing societal demands; JoLynn is sensitive to these pressures it has on women.  She successfully collaborates with marginalized women who need support with all their roles and responsibilities such as: single moms, working moms, new mom’s, step mom’s, and grandmom’s and surrogate mother’s. JoLynn enjoys working with healing and strengthening  mother and daughter relationships, friendships, and sister relationships. She understands the complexity of adolescent, and teen girls and young adult women throughout  their developmental span.  She has coached women and men  to sustain recovery from substances and codependent  relationships.She uses psychoeducation to teach strong personal, mental, physical and spiritual growth. JoLynn also excels at counseling from an integrative framework; implementing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy along with faith- based value systems. She  helps those struggling with grief and loss, reconstruct new meaning, purpose and hope.

JoLynn’s  professional strengths include a history of training and experience with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and most recent interest in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. JoLynn is familiar with EMDR and Narrative Therapy. She has a deep commitment to developing her eclectic modalities. She continues to pursue  education and professional experience in treatment options such as brief, Solution Focused Therapy and Internal Family Systems as well as Parts Work.

Therapy with JoLynn is engaging. She has  been told she has a disarming style; comfortable yet challenging. Warm and direct. Humorous and thoughtful. Energetic and yet down-to-earth. She believes the therapeutic relationship needs to be collaborative. Regardless of therapeutic modalities ultimately it’s the relationship that will inspire change and hope.
