About Dr. Jill

Hello there! I am, Dr Jill, a health facilitator and coach. Why? My passion in life is helping others reach their goals. To address this passion I spent a long time on education to be a health care provider/consultant. Things have changed in healthcare, but my passion has not changed.

I am the owner and founder of M & K Therapy Associates. M & K = Mom & Kids for Work and Wellness was my first business endeavor. My first two employees and devoted supporters were my two daughters. Hence the name Mom & Kids.

I am running my own business and finally free from the pressure of “Having to Fit Into Someone Else’s Mold”. I do enjoy running my own clinic for Reflexology and Reiki treatments and I am pursuing my online business.

I am now a Life Coach Certified in Neurokinetics and specializing in PTSD/Trauma. As a Life Coach I am able to work in person or through a HIPAA secure tele-med system to help people with the stresses resulting from trauma and PTSD. Unlike standard counseling this intervention promotes self reliance in the client without the potential to become dependent on the counselor. My clients report significant reduction in anxiety and other stress reactions after only one session. To learn more or to book a session or to subscribe to the radio shows please go to my Clinic Tab for all the details and links.

I have been in business for 20+ years as a therapist, more than 12 years as a therapy resource company, and over 10 years as a provider of quality health related products and as a Personal Business and Health Coach and Trainer. I have been hanging out with some amazing herbalists and love sharing some basic “home remedies” that I have learned over the past 40+ years. Early on in my Occupational Therapy Career I was the Occupational Therapy Consultant for the development of the Restorative Feeding Program Supplement to "Functional Maintenance Therapy System: Reimbursable Geriatric Service Delivery" (Aspen) in conjunction with Ms. Gail Neustadt, MA, CCC, SLP of Glickstein-Neustadt and Associates, 516 Harrogate Road, Pittaburgh, Pa. 15241, Aspen Press

The health related company that I affiliate with has 50+ years experience in developing and producing quality health related products. I have 25+ years as a Reflexologist – “Put your feet in my hands.”. I am a Reiki Master, an affiliate with Reiki International and am an associate with the Washington County Cancer Society [providing Reiki sessions at a reduced rate for current cancer patients.]

My hobbies include: 18th Century Living History, Backyard Beekeeping, Scottish Country Dance, English Country Dance, St George Adult Tamburitzan Ensemble, weaving [lace and shawls] and tatting [trims for clothing]
