Jill Pettegrew, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Jill Pettegrew, LMFT is a licensed psychotherapist specializing in somatic, mind-body approaches to healing and personal growth. With over 14 years of clinical experience, and 24 years as a somatic practitioner, vipassana (mindfulness) meditator, and earth-based ceremony facilitator, she combines evidence-based therapies with a compassionate and client-centered approach, empowering and supporting individuals towards healing and change.

As a Somatic Experiencing® practitioner, Jill understands the deep connection between the mind and body. She guides her clients in exploring the wisdom held within their bodies, helping them release stored trauma and chronic stress to restore balance. Through Somatic Experiencing® techniques, she assists clients in repatterning their nervous system responses, fostering resilience and facilitating deeper capacity for life's challenges.

Jill's practice places great emphasis on mindfulness, as she believes that cultivating present-moment awareness is essential for self-discovery, self-awareness, and freedom from painfully constricting beliefs, emotions, and physical sensations. She skillfully incorporates mindfulness practices into therapy sessions, helping clients develop greater self-compassion, emotional regulation, and insight.

With a relational approach, Jill recognizes the significance of our connections with others in shaping our well-being. She creates a safe and non-judgmental space where clients can explore their relational patterns, uncover underlying dynamics, and build healthier and more fulfilling relationships.

In addition to her expertise in somatic and mind-body approaches, Jill is trained in ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, an innovative modality that has shown promise in treating a range of mental health conditions. She utilizes this therapy alongside traditional methods, tailoring treatment plans to meet each client's unique needs and goals.

Jill is deeply committed to supporting her clients on their journey towards holistic well-being. With her compassionate guidance and integration of various therapeutic modalities, she empowers individuals to unlock their innate healing capacities and create meaningful change in their lives.
