About Jill Frandsen, LMFT

Jill A. Frandsen is a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist providing psychotherapy services to community members of the Santa Barbara area for the past decade. She works with individuals, couples and families.

There are no templates for the client and therapist helping-relationship as each family, couple and individual presents their own particular needs and reasons for seeking psychotherapy services. As such, interventions are individualized and may include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Trauma focused CBT, Addiction recovery support, Mindfulness, EFT Tapping, Flower Essences, Art Therapy, Brief Solution Focused Therapy and Play Therapy.

Jill earned her master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University in Santa Barbara after receiving her bachelor’s degree in Sociology from UCSB.

Jill enjoys listening to music, walks with friends, meals with family, watercolor painting, walking her dog on the local beaches and growing plants from seeds in her greenhouse.
