Gillian Koch – M.Ed
Gillian graduated St. Olaf College with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. After spending a year serving in the Lutheran Volunteer Corps, Gillian pursued her master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. Her initial clinical experience took place at Bacon Street Youth and Family Services, where she worked with adolescents coping with mental health concerns, alcohol and other substance use and abuse, and family concerns. Gillian spent the following year interning at Christopher Newport University, where she worked with college students experiencing concerns related to mental health, academics, family, and emerging adulthood.
Gillian takes a person-centered approach to counseling, emphasizing a nonjudgmental and authentic therapeutic relationship and environment. She integrates the philosophy from motivational interviewing with techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy and solution-focused therapy in her work. She honors the experiences and differences that each client brings to therapy and demonstrates compassion and respect for every client.
