About Me

I have vast experience working with a wide range of clients. My speciality is relationships, whether it be strengthening them or moving forward post-relationship.
As a graduate of NYU’s School of Clinical Social Work, I specialize in psychoanalytic therapies which takes your past experiences (both negative and positive) and relates them to your present day behaviors and relationship patterns.
I encourage the use of self-reflection and self-examination. Recognizing recurring patterns can help you to see how you avoid distress or develop defense mechanisms to cope. This insight is the impetus to changing those patterns. My therapy style is laid back and client led. I believe in meeting you where you are with respect and compassion. My style is also eclectic, often incorporating aspects of various treatment approaches. I will encourage you to recognize your positive strengths and attributes in order to develop and incorporate them into your life.

I feel extremely fortunate to have found Hilary. I look forward to speaking with her and I truly value and trust her opinion and advice. Hilary is open-minded, kind, professional, relatable, funny, and so thoughtful. Hilary is a gift!

My day gets better as soon as I talk with Hilary! She’s understanding and she listens and even remembers details of things we’ve talked about in the past. I’m so fortunate to have been paired with her as my therapist.

Hilary is kind and caring. I have gained so much from our sessions. I feel safe and grounded in our talks. She has the ability to be open, honest, and kind. My sessions with her are always beneficial and healing.

Great listener. Really connects to you and makes you feel like your story and your emotions matter and you matter.

Coming on to better help I was very skeptical at first. I wasn’t sure how well I could connect with a therapist if it wasn’t in person. But Hilary changed my mind about that. She really helped me come back to myself and get me through one of the toughest times in my life. Her guidance and advice really helped me gain another perspective I didn’t know I needed. It gave me the wake up call I had been waiting for for months. I feel more connected to myself now and know my needs. She helped me believe in myself again when I had lost this part of myself before therapy. I can breathe and think more clearly now and I don’t know how to thank her. I am so grateful I gave therapy a shot. Thank you better help and thank you Hilary.

Hilary is very friendly and open. She listens with an open mind to my rambling. She looks for my happiness points. Let's me unpack my anxiety and responds to my journal as well. Enjoying our talks.

Me and Hillary have only had about 4 phone sessions and I genuinely feel a connection and understanding - my issues are hard to generalize and she contemplates what I tell her and responds in a honest way and has deep responses to my thoughts and feelings. I needed a therapist to help me understand why I do the things I do and Hillary has been recalling small details about me and my situation since after our first session. She is helping me piece together what my triggers and issues could stem from and she communicates very well AND PROMPTLY. She’s not just listening as well, she’s helping me pick small steps towards a happier life. I think if you have complex situations going on in ur life or your intimate life, Hillary would have a lot of understanding and reason to add ❤️

Hilary is fantastic - she is a great listener (of course), attentive, and creates a safe space for me to be myself. She gives me tools to succeed and aids me in my process through self-discovery. I highly recommend Hilary!
