Hillel UW was the first Hillel in the country to offer a counseling program to serve Jewish young adults on campus and throughout the community. The Hillel Counseling Program is a joint project of Hillel UW and Jewish Family Service.
Counseling can help you navigate life’s twists and turns. You may find one-on-one counseling helpful for:
• Interfaith dating
• LGBTQ, coming out and gender identity issues
• Eating and body image issues
• Substance abuse and recovery
• Pre-marital concerns
• Grief and loss
• Violence and abuse
• Job-related concerns
• Jewish identity issues
Hillel counseling services are:
- Confidential and affordable
- Available to Jewish undergraduate and graduate students. Referrals also available for young adults who are part of our Jconnect community.
- Short- or long-term as needed

Stefanie obtained her Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling in 2007 from Antioch University Seattle and is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. Before joining the Hillel team, Stefanie provided clinical counseling and education in various roles at Youth Eastside Service for around 10 years. Previously, Stefanie was a community-based advocate with Eastside Domestic Violence Program. Stefanie takes a Humanistic approach to counseling and values the strengths, imperfections, gifts, and challenges that are part of the human experience. She has training and experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Family Systems Theory. Stefanie’s other interests include music, hiking, travelling, and spending time with her family and friends. Originally from New Jersey, Stefanie moved to Seattle in 1998 for a job as the JSCS fellow with Hillel UW (Yup, this one!). In that position, she focused on outreach and event planning with the undergraduate Jewish community on campus. Many moons later, she is returning in an entirely different role but is just as excited to be part of the Hillel UW community.
