Jill McMahon, LPC
Jill is a licensed professional counselor who has focused on working with Survivors of Suicide since 2003. She was first introduced to those bereaved by suicide while working for The Wendt Center for Loss and Healing in Washington, D.C. Jill says that she knew almost immediately that she wanted to focus her life’s work on helping Survivors. She appreciates the uniqueness and social stigma associated with this grief. Her goal is to provide a safe space for those struggling with this loss, and to help provide hope for those feeling confused, helpless and alone.
Jill provides local training on both suicide prevention, and Survivor of Suicide grief. She, and a co-speaker, have been invited to speak at the American Association of Suicidology national conference on several occasions, as well as the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention conference two years in a row. Most recently, she has presented as a speaker at the International Association for Suicide Prevention conference in both Norway and Estonia.
