Groups Led By Jil Frey:
Jil Frey is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) new to the Washington, D.C. area by way of Connecticut. She graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work (BSW) from Sacred Heart University in 2011, a Master’s Degree in Social Work (MSW) from Fordham University in 2013, and is presently working toward completion of a Doctorate of Philosophy in Social Psychology from Walden University.
Arriving to CCCC with ten years of experience with functional behavioral assessments and behavior intervention planning, Jil’s clinical approach emphasizes practical, direct, and action-focused support using principles of behaviorism and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT). Areas of specialization with adults and couples include anxiety management, challenges faced by the LGBTQ community, healthy relationship building, co-parenting, and challenges with adjustment. Areas of specialization with children and adolescents include anxiety disorders, avoidant behaviors (school resistance, social isolation), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), social skills education, and neurodevelopment disabilities (specifically Fragile X Syndrome and Autism Spectrum Disorders). Additional services offered also include large and small group-based interventions such as family therapy, group psycho-education, and professional development with presentation experience at the local, national, and international level on the subjects of Fragile X Syndrome, school-based interventions, stigmas in mental health, support for creative professionals working in the arts, adolescent development, and related subjects.
In her spare time, Jil enjoys creative writing, theater, music, and spending time with her two cats, Traffik and Menu.
