Susan "Jill" Hedges

LPCC

About me

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Licensed Professional Art Therapist. I hold licenses in Kentucky. I am also a Registered Play Therapist with the Association for Play Therapy. I have more than 12 years experience working in a therapeutic school with children with anxiety, depression, medical trauma, attachment behaviors, PTSD, ADHD, Autism, as well as bereavement and grief. I am experienced working with children with all manner of childhood disorders or multiple disabilities, including deafness and blindness. My style is humanistic with a child-centered approach supporting evidenced-based intervention. I believe in human beings, in their capacity to grow, change and endure. I believe in using the strengths of the individual as the basis of finding solutions to existing difficulties and paths forward. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy but am able to supplement this with Expressive therapies which can provide a deeper personal meaning to the pursuit of wellness. I believe in the importance of establishing a safe place for the building of relationship and communication with unconditional acceptance of the individual, and of holding that safe space open for the expression and movement of the individual in therapy. My extensive training in expressive and play therapies helps me give extra support to children in therapy.

Initially, I met with Jill regarding work stressors and deaths of coworkers. She ultimately counseled when I left that job and prepared for a cross-country move to assist an adult child needed my support. If she were licensed in the state I'm relocating to, I'd continue with her. I'd recommend her to anyone, especially middle-aged women with stress, depression and facing life changes.

Jill has been a great find. I was totally hesitant about starting therapy sessions to ease my anxiety, but she has been such a good fit. After only two weeks I feel incredibly more capable of handling whatever comes my way. The simple tools that she has shared and suggestions for subtle life changes have been an amazing resource. I am so grateful.
