Licensed Professional Counselor 

Jill helps people who want to build intimacy, compassion and trust in their lives and relationships. Through empathic connection we reignite passion, love and enhance our ability to communicate effectively. We are wired to connect and when the torments of life create a chasm in our relationship, we are often left feeling numb, distressed, anxious or angry. 

Jill works with those who desire change or healing when their relationship is creating pain or falling apart.  

With a sub-specialty in infidelity recovery and divorce, Jill also has experience working with sexual anxiety, sexual pain, sexually impulsive behavior, communication difficulties, depression, grief and loss, trauma, lack of self-esteem and anger management. 


In addition to working with traditional couples, Jill has experience and training working with non-monogamous relationship styles. She is a sex-positive, kink-knowledgeable professional.  

Jill’s post-graduate sexuality training includes seminars by Dr. Marty Klein, Emily Nagowski and Dr. David Ley. She has completed the Emotion Focused Couple Therapy Externship (known as EFT or EFCT) and uses these approaches as a framework for her therapy.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist - Associate

Jamie Falco works exclusively as an individual therapist. Jamie places a focus on therapeutic guidance and support to women who share sexual relationships with women, an often under-served population. As a part of this culture, Jamie understands how one’s relationship with their sexual orientation might affect their day to day life and more intimately, their sexual identity. 


Jamie provides a safe and supportive space for individuals to explore themselves, their struggles with sexuality, lack of sexual desire and meeting or re-connecting with the sexual self. Jamie assists women in understanding the messages we received about sex growing up, how they might have shaped the way we view ourselves and the relationships we share. It is her belief that through understanding who we are, we develop a deeper compassion for ourselves and the women we love.  

Jamie also enjoys working with bisexual men.  She assists clients in developing and strengthening a personal understanding of their sexual identity, healing internalized homophobia and destigmatizing bisexuality. Jamie offers counseling for other culture specific concerns such as healing shame, rejection from family and coming out.  Jamie is a trauma informed therapist with a focus on interpersonal neuroscience, attachment theory, mindfulness, grounding and regulating the nervous system.
