Jenna Hill is the Executive Director and therapist at Southern Ontario Counselling Services. She is Mohawk and a member of the Bear Clan. Her life motto is “You will be too much for some people. Those are not your people.” She is a firm believer in finding joy, ditching other people’s expectations and drama, and living life in the most authentic way possible.
Jenna spent almost 20 years in child welfare before leaving to work for the Office of the Children’s Lawyer and in private practice. She teaches law and counselling skills at the Anishinabek Educational Institute (AEI) in the Traditional Aboriginal Healing Methods program and the Child Welfare Advocate (Band Rep) program. She has extensive knowledge in the areas of FASD, child custody and access, high conflict parents, special needs children and families, and co-parenting work. She is also the founder of FASD Families, a resource for families struggling with caring for children with FASD, where she shares her personal learning, humour, insights, and stories about being a single parent to two little boys with FASD.
Jenna is a great fit for parents struggling with special needs children, parents in the process of separation, and with First Nations people (because she is one.) She believes in fierce authenticity, wholehearted living and parenting, confronting perfectionism and other expectations that set us up to fail.
