Behavioral Health/Counseling Services

The Outpatient Behavioral Health Therapy program focuses on providing counseling services to individuals, couples and families, including children, teens, and adults. Those dealing with issues of anxiety, depression, family conflict, medical illness, and behavioral difficulties will benefit from the program, as well as those with a more severe mental health diagnosis.  A variety of interventions and coping skills will be provided, based upon individual treatment planning and agreed upon by the patient and the healthcare team. 

Jill Barnfield, LCSW, is one of the two therapists providing the counseling services through Horizon Healthcare.  Jill comes to Horizon Healthcare with seventeen years of clinical experience.  She has been doing counseling in a private practice setting since 2003.  She holds a Masters of Social Work from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, and has been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2000.  Jill, an area native, resides in Fairfield with her husband Barry Barnfield.  

Nicole Uhlmann, LCSW, is also part of the therapy team and she also provides counseling services through Horizon Healthcare.  Nicole comes to Horizon Healthcare with experience working with a variety of populations including children, teens, adult, and the elderly, along with working in case management, clinical counseling and in leadership roles.  She has an extensive amount of experience with chemical dependency, along with group treatments that will be helpful when working with those who need family counseling. 
“I am pleased to join the excellent care team at Horizon Healthcare, and to have the opportunity to fill a very important need for quality mental healthcare in our community.  With today’s fast paced lifestyle, we all face a wide variety of difficult changes.  The pressures of daily living frequently leave us feeling overwhelmed, and often lead to stress, depression, relationship and behavioral issues.  My goal is to provide a comfortable environment where our patients can feel accepted and understood, while learning to manage these difficulties in a positive, healthy manner.  I’m very excited about my role in educating our entire community that counseling is a well proven way to help us better enjoy our lives and the relationships we have with others,” stated Jill Barnfield, LCSW, Clinical Therapist at Horizon Healthcare. 
 “I am blessed to have the opportunity to deliver Counseling Services to clients here at Horizon Healthcare.  What I most enjoy about being a Therapist is assisting my clients in overcoming obstacles in their lives. It is rewarding to see them progress from session to session and find success,” stated Nicole Uhlmann, LCSW.
