Jilian Rakow, MA, LPC


As you progress on your own personal journey, you may encounter barriers and obstacles that leave you feeling overwhelmed, tired, and confused. And in a world where everyone seems to have an opinion about what's right for you, it can be difficult to discern what you need.

I cater my approach to fit your mental and emotional health needs and am committed to tailoring options to assist you in achieving emotional, physical, and mental health. As a Professional Counselor I support my clients by working side by side with them as they work towards becoming their truest selves.

My experience includes many years of working with clients in home-based therapy and with vulnerable populations. As a result, I have become passionate in my support of women while they navigate trauma, parenting, the pressures of society, and the struggles they encounter in the many roles they play in society. My many years of experience working with animals and as an Animal Assisted Therapist have given me special focus and insight into the value of animals to our mental health and in our lives. I use this insight to support clients in many different ways including, but not limited to, supporting them in the grief from loss of a pet and in struggles with their emotional support animals. In addition, I specialize in working with the LGBTQIA+ community and the unique experiences and concerns of disenfranchised populations. I have transitioned to telehealth and virtual delivery of services as these platforms have proven to be professional, affordable, convenient and effective for my clients.
