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.
