Portland Counselor & Hypnotherapist

Jillian Brown

Jillian Brown is a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern (LPC intern) and a certified hypnotherapist.
Her academic study of hypnosis came by way of a bachelor degree in psychology from Portland State University, which gave her a solid foundation in modern psychology and brain science, including common patterns of behavior and the influence of perception on formation of memories.

Following graduation, she pursued formal training in hypnosis from the Northwest Hypnosis Institute, completing its 200-hour program in 2011.

From there she had gone on to receive her Master’s degree in Psychology with a Counseling focus from Saybrook University and is now a practicing LPC intern working toward licensure in the state of Oregon. As an intern she is under the supervision of Selin Strait LPC, R-DMT. Selin can be reached by email at selinstraitdmt@gmail.com.

Aside from her University training, Jillian has also pursued studies in shamanic arts and energy work modalities. Jillian has completed a certificate in Process Oriented Psychology at the Process Work institute here in Portland OR, and has also completed a year internship at the Process Work Institute. Jillian has studied Primary Attachment Psychotherapy at the M.E.T.A. institute here in Portland, OR. She has studied pre and perinatal psychology, attachment theory, depth psychology, sand tray, play therapy, shame training, NVC, and NLP. Jillian continues to hone her craft as a psychotherapist through a variety of workshops and continuing education classes.
