Jillana “Jill” McCray, MSW, LICSW
Hello and welcome! My name is Jillana (Jill-anna), but I go by Jill most of the time (she/her pronouns). You are welcome to call me by either name. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with a deep love for providing clinical mental health treatment. I graduated from St. Cloud State University with my Bachelor’s of Social Work and the University at Albany, SUNY with my Master’s of Social Work. I was born and raised in central MN, and I have close ties to Upstate New York where I completed my Master’s program.
Though I work with clients of any age, I have specialized expertise and interest in working with children, adolescents, and their families. I can help clients who are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, parenting, and relationship issues. Additionally, I have a passion for supporting and guiding clients who are healing from the experience and effects of trauma.
On the personal side, I am an avid reader and multiple times have read 10o books in a year! Recently I’ve been really into mysteries and historical fiction novels. I have four animals (2 dogs & 2 cats) who really wish they could join in on my therapy sessions, though they don’t. The dogs do come with me when we go camping (mostly rustic camping) because the beagle in particular can’t get enough of nature and the outdoors!
