The story of Guilford Counseling PLLC

January 1st, 2011: Guilford Counseling was Born

Jennifer Cobb LCSW, MSW, DBT-C founded Guilford Counseling to address the needs of individuals often labeled ‘too much’ and frequently abandoned by their therapists. Fueled by a passion to fill this gap in care, Guilford Counseling has grown into a thriving practice dedicated to providing sustainable and effective services to underserved populations. Jennifer’s commitment ensures that Guilford Counseling remains a beacon of support for those who have struggled to find help elsewhere.

2011-2024: We kept growing

Guilford Counseling hired and trained many effective and amazing clinicians adding around 10 clinicians between 2011 and 2021. In 2021, we hired 6 clinicians to meet the rising need in people seeking services, especially due to the pandemic and greater needs developing. Since then, we’ve hired 12 more clinicians within the past 3 years to meet the growing needs of those seeking diverse and effective trauma-informed services.

2024: We are here to help!

We’ve seen exponential growth in our service delivery and client-centered approach, reflected in the high satisfaction our clients express. Our practice is expanding to offer more trauma-informed training, consulting, and strategies for building effective, sustainable practices. Guilford Counseling is committed to supporting you on your unique journey.
