Jill Baumgarner, LPC-Intern
Jill works with couples and individuals who are experiencing sexual health or relationship concerns. People report dissatisfaction with their sexual or emotional relationships for many reasons. Some wish to have more sex, some wish to have different sex, and some simply wish to rediscover the intimate connection they once had. Jill’s practice focuses on helping couples achieve the sexual life they want, “Discovering the difference between sacrifice and giving.”
Jill also works with those suffering from traumatic loss and grief at My Healing Place, Austin. Grief and loss are a part of life. Whether you’ve experienced a death, are transitioning into a new phase of life, or feel as though you’ve lost a part of yourself, grief may seem to control you. Jill works to help clients process their losses and create something new from their loss.
Jill has also worked in the areas of: conflict resolution, communication, loneliness, loss of self-worth, and feeling “stuck.” Previously, Jill worked with clients processing their career concerns at Texas State University. She also has experience with the Positive Discipline parenting approach during her work at Austin Family Counseling.
Currently, Jill is the Social Media director of Southwest Sexual Health Alliance that “promotes an integrated, interdisciplinary approach to sexuality with the goal of fostering cooperation and dialogue among diverse professionals”.
