Hello, my name is Jill Klingler. I am a licensed clinical psychologist who treats adults, children and families in the Cincinnati area. I take a wholistic approach to therapy, that emphasizes personal growth and positive change. I seek to help people live in alignment with their personal, cultural and spiritual values. In addition to cognitive behavioral, trauma and other therapies such as EMDR, that help people make changes, I work psychodynamically at the underlying pathology. My specialties encompass areas such as anxiety, depression, trauma, addictions and all kinds of relationship work. I build motivation and rely upon your commitment to therapy.
I have training in EMDR and hypnosis. I use these methods to build/enhance personality and to resolve complex dysfunction. I am creative; for example, I employ dream work. I have special training, expertise and experience in health psychology, trauma, sex therapy, infertility, preadoption evaluations and couples and relationship challenges.
I have been told that I am "incredibly approachable." I feel honored to provide services that will help you get back on your feet and fulfill your potential, finding purpose in life. My experience in life and in the field is extensive; I have many years of service to benefit you.
