    Jill is so, so smart and in all of the years I've been going to her, I always feel heard and understood. She's no nonsense and there have been times when I haven't wanted to face things that are personal and hard. But Jill can see right through any BS to the heart of the matter, helping you make breakthroughs in a loving and supportive way, while never solving your problems for you. I value Jill and all that she's helped me to accomplish so much.

    Jill is the first therapist I ever saw who really GOT me -- who saw beneath the surface to the real me. It's a true gift she has: to both empathize with her patients' struggles and pain but also to be tough when necessary, to help you make changes. She's warm, relatable, funny and also so, so smart and caring. Never once did I feel like she was judging me in a way that was uncomfortable, and she always remembered the little details that made me feel like "whoah, this woman is totally getting me, and listening to me." We worked together on my eating disorder, anxiety and issues surrounding family life and motherhood and she was so capable and understanding about everything.

    Jill has a gift for what she does. Not only does she possess superior clinical skills and impressive intellect, she also has a refreshingly authentic approach, is unquestionably dedicated to her clients, and has a magnetic personality, that simply makes her someone you just want to be around. Jill is the cream of the crop when it comes therapists. I love collaborating with her and never hesitate to send people her way.

    I recently began working professionally with Jill as her supervisee. It was an instant connection and I felt like she immediately helped to boost my confidence in my work and provided me with insight for next steps of my professional path. In our weekly sessions, Jill continuously allows for me to process my own feelings towards a case without overstepping. She regularly challenges me where I need to be challenged, and gets me thinking in ways I never thought I could. Jill has been an incredible support as I begin down my own professional path. She is honest, open, empathetic, warm, light hearted and extremely knowledge and intelligent! Jill has a great inviting smile that allows for an overall pleasant professional relationship. Without hesitation, I would recommend Jill on both a professional level, as well as therapeutic support!

    Jill Lewis is a whip-smart therapist. Her insight on clinical work has been amazing. The way she thinks about deeper psychological issues is refreshing and honest. Talking to Jill feels like you are confiding in someone who truly "gets it" and will also challenge you. Working together has motivated me to be clearer on my path, find my voice and take accountability for what I can do!!

    Jill is one of the best therapists I've ever worked with. She takes great care in working with her clients, and communicates with other healthcare team members so to progress treatment in a progressive and balanced way. I value her opinion, and never hesitate to refer clients to her care.

    Jill is not only a gifted, intelligent therapist but also an extremely kind, warm-hearted and loving person. She pours her heart into her work and it shows in the quality of her care. I hope anyone seeking support through therapy could experience Jill!!

    I have worked with Jill for 3+ years, in both one-on-one and group settings. I cannot recommend Jill highly enough. She is incredibly smart, direct, warm, understanding, challenging and funny, too. Jill will teach you to recognize and understand your thought patterns and interpersonal dynamics. She will teach you how to help yourself through life challenges. I am most grateful to Jill for this gift - the ability to help myself through life's events by processing my emotions and actions. To be clear, it is not always comfortable to do the work Jill asks, but it is always (ALWAYS) worth it. She sees me when I can't see myself. She is kind when I can't be kind to myself. And she challenges me when I shy away from pushing myself.

    I am not even sure I ever really understood how good I had it, until it was gone. I found Jill through one of her previous clients who was also a good friend of mine at the time. When I told my friend I was moving to New York City to attend college she told me I had to see Jill Lewis and I would just love her. And five years later I can sit back and reflect on that moment and say that the friend that directed me to Jill could not have been more right. I have come to love Jill as a therapist, as a role model, and as someone that has deeply impacted and changed my life for the better.

    My relationship with Jill is still something I think about even though we have not worked together individually for a number of years. As someone who is recovery from a ten year battle with an Eating Disorder I came in to therapy with a lot of "baggage" one would say. But as I sat in session with Jill week after week I was forced to not just work through that baggage, but stare at it, talk about it, cry about it and make a new relationship to it. Jill did the impossible. I have always been someone who has been scared of being seen and scared of the power of my own body and voice. Jill saw me time and time again and time and time again it was the scariest thing in the world, until it wasn't scary anymore.

    About a year ago, I wrote a review for Jill on here and it was flagged and eventually deleted, probably because I hadn't written any other Yelp reviews and wasn't very active on the site.. So here I am, re-posting one, which in itself should help you understand how important this is. Let me try to recall what I had previously written:

    Having been to many therapists - some when I didn't really want the help and some after I decided I wanted to get healthy. What I've come to realize is that Jill is the absolute best therapist, but ONLY if you are ready to get help. If you don't want to get help and if you plan on lying through your sessions, you won't like her. What I mean by that is she's not dumb and you're not fooling her, even if you think you are. And if you're trying, it's just a waste of money.

    I'm not saying this from experience. In fact, when I had Jill as an individual therapist as well as group therapist, I was more than ready to be in a better place. I know this because even in my willing mind, it was challenging. I find myself to be pretty well connected to my emotions, how I'm feeling and why, my upbringing, relationships, etc etc..and even still, Jill was able to make so many connections that I hadn't.

    I felt I knew the ins and outs of how therapy works, and I addressed that with Jill. I questioned what she was thinking about what I was saying and talked about myself as an individual vs myself as a patient. I was able to bring up the topic of therapy as well as all of the issues that brought me there in the first place. Jill's office became a place where no subject was off limits. I know it seems like that is what therapy should be, but very rarely have I felt comfortable enough with a therapist to really open up. As much as I may have made it seem like she's tough, she's also one of the nicest people I've ever met, especially in her industry.

    I have been in a healthy relationship for 3 years and just got engaged. I have thru-hiked the entire Appalachian Trail last year, and am currently writing this review from the Pacific Crest Trail. I am strong enough to physically, mentally, and emotionally be able to participate in the lifestyle that I love, alongside a person I love - two things I would have never been able to do had it not been for Jill.

    If you are living in Atlanta or in the surrounding area, know that there is a fantastic therapist that is very missed in New York and who is sure to change lives wherever she goes.. And if you go to her, tell her I say hi :)

    I have been working with Jill over the last 4 years on tackling my eating disorder. This was not my first rodeo in the therapy world or trying to overcome my food stuff, but I really feel like Jill gets it. She is empathetic and understanding, but does not let me hide. She is direct and challenging. I felt safe with her and she really helped me to understand why I was doing what I was doing. I know that I saved my own life, because if I said "Jill saved my life" she would encourage me to own my success, but reach out to her, ask for help, start the process, it will probably be the hardest thing you ever do, but beyond worth it.

    Jill doesn't let me get away with anything, and I mean that in the best possible way.

    When you're struggling with something, it can be hard to hard to face the truth and the choices you make. Jill finds a tactful, smart, and nurturing way to help you deal with your issues and emotions head on. You feel like she's on your side but also pushing you to be your best, you grow.

    I don't know what I would've done without Jill. I found her after I had been through two terrible experiences with other therapists.

    Jill quickly gained my trust with her humor, warmth, and compassion. In the three years I've been working with her, she has helped me out of some very difficult places. Jill always makes time for me with my hectic schedule and has been more than accommodating.
