Hi! I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 13 years' experience treating children, adolescents, families, and individual adults with a variety of behavioral health concerns, in a wide range of settings, and using multiple evidence-based models of treatment. The wide range of settings include: hospitals, Hospice, and a street children organization in Uganda, East Africa; the homes and immediate communities of juvenile offenders in New Mexico; inner city schools of Baltimore and Johns Hopkins Hospital Pediatric Emergency Department; a medical home in inner city Boston serving a very diverse population; a variety of Knoxville, TN youth organizations; and for the last few years, private practice with clients of all ages.
It is in the private practice that I have advanced my work with adults, and now, I deeply resonate with my adult clients and find the therapy is very effective! In addition to some of the more common struggles, such as depression and anxiety, I am passionate about and have been developing my work with maternal mental health- women/couples experiencing infertility, issues that might impact pregnancy, and postpartum disorders. Like many therapists, I use a variety of therapeutic models, but currently, I find that Acceptance Commitment Therapy often delivers the best results.
Regardless of model and strategies used, I truly view my work with clients as a privilege to “bear witness” to their experiences, pains, and stories, and to strive towards clients’ goals collaboratively. I am excited to use this modern format to support people in living their lives according to their values and in pursuit of their goals.

Hilary is a wonderful person who truly listens and attempts to get to the heart of issues that we discuss. i’m very grateful that i am able to speak with her.
Very experienced and thoughtful counselor.
Hillary is a wonderful counselor. She is honest and helpful but she never pretends to know or understand something she doesn't. She gives good solutions and anxiety management that actually works.
This has been a really cool process to work through some ongoing issues I've had with fear and anxiety. I definitely recommend Hilary for anyone needing to start getting back some parts of their lives or taking more control over their mental wellbeing. Thanks!
It is a pleasure to have Hilary as counsellor. She always has some good piece of advice for me to work on, and she asks me the questions that I am unable to ask myself. She sometimes shares her perspective on relationships and I find that very interesting and challenging. I strongly recommend her.
Hilary is the best counselor I've ever had over 10 years of struggling with OCD, anxiety and depression. I would recommend her to anyone.
Talking with Hilary has been the catalyst I needed for change. She is so kind and understanding and provides great resources. I am truly grateful for this experience with her.
Hilary is very good at what she does!
I would recommend Hilary.
The support and guidance that I got have been tremendous and I will continue to use BetterHelp in the future.
Hilary is amazing. She has earned my confidence out of the box and I am so, so pleased with her commitment to help me. She has exceeded my expectations two hundred fold. I would recommend her to anyone.
