Jillian is always respectable of my time in session. I've been in therapy before and I respect the fact that she'sthe only therapist I feel that is truly listening and provides feedback.

About Jillian Holguin

Welcome! Yourself First, LLC is a private practice outpatient setting that provides individual, couple, and family psychotherapy sessions. Yourself First also provides life coaching services to clients that need stress related work, financial and life stressor management. For additional appointments please visit my website. My name is Jillian Holguin and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Exchange place, Jersey City, 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 attended Harvard Medical School and received a certificate in treating couples as well as Pharmacology. 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 especially those disclosing for the first time. It is an honor to be with you on this journey towards you achieving your goals. My approach is unique in the sense that I make it my top priority to give my clients my undivided attention as well as feedback so they can feel that they are getting the most out of each session and really conquering their goals one session at a time! My goal is to not keep clients in treatment longer than they have to. #Manifestyourworld!

I have no family here and I remember having to go to crisis and Jillian was willing to go with me and stay the whole time when she didn't have to. Having that support and knowing my therapist would go aboveand beyond for me when it was my first time going to the hospital, was something I'm ever so grateful for. She is truly an amazing person.

Jillian was cordial and considerate upon meeting me and settling me into her office. She listens while maintaining eye contact, which I respect. My only contention is that she interrupted our session twice to answer a text and a phone call.It could’ve been an emergency, but I felt as though my time was disrespected in this manner.

Jillian is great. She gives you the tools to deal with life in a healthy way and helps you feel confident in your decisions. She also helps you understand why you feel the way you do which helps form a strategybest suited for your "problems". She is great and sees things from a modern perspective

Jillian is an amazing doctor- I immediately felt a sense of comfortability when I stepped into her office. Her office is cozy and feels like a safe place. I've been in therapy before and never met a therapist as engaging, caring,as knowledgable in her field of expertise as I felt Jillian was. She makes it a point to follow up with me after our appointments towards the end of the week to make sure I am doing okay if I am having a bad week. She is so reliable and professional and I am so happy we developed a strong connection and she was the right fit for me.

I was excited to see Jillian because of all of the good reviews here. The first visit was just intake, which I expected. The second visit was ok. For the third visit, I needed to reschedule for a different time. Ispent two days straight trying to reach her and getting her voicemail. I could not leave a message because her voicemail was full. By the time my appointment rolled around, which I knew I couldn't make, I figured at least by now she'll call me. She never did. Essentially she fell off the face of the earth with no explanation. Needless to say, I won't be going back, even if I were able to get through to her!
