About Jill

You want someone who has knowledge, experience, and compassion when you search for a therapist.  Jill Fein Baker, LCSW has the educational background and practical experience to help you and your partner mend your damaged relationship.


Her Personal and Professional Journey

Jill is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (Illinois) and a member of the Academy of Clinical Social Workers (a national accreditation) with a Masters in Social Work from the Jane Addams College of Social Work at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

In 1989, after seeing Harville Hendrix on The Oprah Winfrey Show, she attended his "Getting the Love You Want" workshop for couples. Jill said, "Like many wives, I dragged my reluctant husband to the workshop so that Harville could fix him. Soon I found out how much work I had to do. Of course, that was really a blessing in disguise, because I didn't even like the person I had become in that marriage, but I didn't know how not to be that. I was fascinated by the Imago theory and tools and realized it had immense potential benefit, both personally and professionally. I eagerly began training with Dr. Hendrix."

Jill was certified as an Imago therapist by Dr. Hendrix in June of 1990, 1 of the first 5 therapists in the Chicago area to do so. Together with some of those colleagues, they founded the Institute for Imago Relationship Therapy of Greater Chicago, a professional training and support organization. She later went on to acquire more training, becoming a Certified Workshop Presenter for couples and singles, and an Advanced Clinician in Imago Therapy.

Jill has also trained with Pat Love, Ed.D. author of "Hot Monogamy." Additionally, she has completed the initial training with Dr. John Gottman, author of "Seven Principles of Successful Marriages." Jill trained under Dr. Steven Stosny and became certified to teach HEALS™, his groundbreaking anger management tool. Her private practice reflects the wisdom of these and other important mentors.

Jill's Philosophy

I care deeply about helping people grow, heal and restore connections in their lives and believe a conscious, committed relationship can be the perfect setting to create that experience.

Those relationships include husband-wife, partner-partner, parent-child, even sibling-sibling! I am committed to helping families create safe environments for their children so that each generation can end destructive cycles and get progressively more whole.

In our natural quest to feel connected, we sometimes mistake enmeshment or symbiosis for real union or true love. A conscious love relationship allows for all parties to be aware of their profound connection while maintaining personal responsibility and opportunity. In its most sacred moments, this relationship allows each person to connect in a spiritual as well as emotional and physical way.a

Being in a conscious, loving, intimate relationship can be the hardest job you'll ever have. I'm delighted to have found Imago therapy to be such a powerful, productive resource for my clients and for myself. It offers wonderful tools and processes for getting (and giving) the love you want.

I have found Imago Relationship Therapy to provide a life-changing way of being in relationships for my clients as well as with my partner, my four children, and two step-children. It can help you transform your relationship from one that may be mostly full of frustration, hurt and disconnection, to relationships that are primarily filled with healing, growth, intimacy and connection. This all can happen if you have the willingness and the courage to do the work of learning to love and be loved. I am dedicated to this process and honored to be a guide with you on this sacred journey.
