Meet Jill

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

For the past 25 years I've been helping adults identify thoughts and  behavior patterns that cause stress and interfere with overall functioning, overall happiness, and healthy relationships. 


Through a non-judgmental, collaborative and trusting relationship, we can work to reach your personal goals. Together we will work on moving through issues that interfere with gaining peace and happiness in your life.

In addition, I have extensive experience working with older adults, with a focus on navigating this phase of life.  I also frequently work with adults experiencing grief/loss.

My office is centrally located in Ramsey, New Jersey, offering easy access via Route 17 and Route 208, with onsite parking.

I have been seeing Jill Essery for over a year. I reached out to her because I was struggling with a transition in my life and subsequently Covid 19 happened. Jill is very knowledgeable, caring and thoughtful during our sessions. She provides constructive feedback and has equipped me with tools to better manage my emotions. I really enjoy my time with Jill and would strongly recommend her as a therapist.

I met Jill Essery in the fall of 2019, while I was going through a crisis. Jill has a way of helping me understand myself better than any other therapist I have worked with.  She gets me, and she understands where I am coming from. The progress I have made in the past year and a half has been amazing. I truly feel like I understand myself better, and that I am a better person for it. I have been truly blessed to be able to have Jill Essery to rely on and to hold my hand through that process. I highly recommend her and can only say I wish I had found her sooner. For her presence in my life, I am eternally grateful.

I found Jill Essery and have been going to counseling for the past three years. Jill has helped me to release my inner feelings and has guided me to move forward. She has helped me to grow emotionally and intellectually. She cares deeply and always challenges me and has helped make me a much stronger person. I highly recommend her for a Therapist.
